trying to be healthy
I am tired of being unhealthy, I am tired of being so overweight and feeling it in everything I do. I really want to change, not just for myself but for my family as well. As Ewan gets older and I am chasing after him I am beginning to realize that if I huff and I puff up a flight of stairs how am I suppose to run after a toddler. I am also hoping to get pregnant in late fall so add that into the mix and I will be a total wreck. I also think it is very important that I instill healthy eating habits in Ewan and any other future children I may have one day. How I am suppose to do that if I can't even set a good example myself.
My main goal is to get healthy, to eat right and to feel better physically. Hopefully by doing that I will lose some of this excess weight and find a happier, healthier me in a thinner body. I am not expecting to weigh 125 pounds, heck i'm not even expecting to weigh 150 pounds, especially with a possible pregnancy in my future. I would however like to go into that pregnancy far healthier and perhaps lighter then I went into Ewan's pregnancy. I had GD with Ewan and though I'm sure I will get it again, the only possible chance to not get it is to shed some excess pounds.
My family is being very supportive of me(sometimes) and that is helping. The greatest support come from my dad who is all about being healthy. He is really encouraging me to get out and move and do some sort of exercise. For me this is the hardest part. I am not an athlete in any way shape or form and with Ewan at home with me it makes it rather difficult. I did manange to do an exercise tape yesterday and if I can try to do it at least 2 times a week and maybe go for a walk with Ewan 2 times a week I think I may actually make some progress.
So wish me luck everyone and stay tuned and follow my progress. I started out this process weighing 233 pounds and being a horrible couch potato with horrible eating habits. Lets see where I end up.
