I woke up at 6:30am this morning. Oh it was hard, I have been very sleepy in the morning these past few months (I've been dealing with thyroid problems), but I made myself do it. I am so glad I did. I am VERY motivated to lose weight, eat healthy and get active. "What?" you ask, "It's not even January yet!" I know, I know... I can't wait. I have 12 weeks to get in a shape other than ROUND for our trip. We will be staying in Fort Lauderdale for 2 days before we can fly to Haiti, so we will probably be spending some time at the beach. I am not a beach bathing beauty at this point! Also, when we get on that little plane to Haiti, we must be weighed. I want to prevent any smirks or comments made by little Haitian men. And, in Haiti it is very hot and humid and more uncomfortable if you are overweight. Sooo, I am highly motivated to get on track. I have tried many times before, but I am ready now.
I woke up and got my walking shoes on and did a workout called Walk Away the Pounds. It is great for beginners and for yucky weather because you can walk 2 miles in your living room. Then I did some crunches and arm exercises and tried a new dvd called Holy Yoga. I actually bought it in the airport in Florida during my last trip to Haiti but have not tried it until now. It was great! It incorporated yoga exercises with bible scripture and prayer. I loved it and it felt so good! It came with a book too that I may try to find time to read.
Now, I am off to make a smoothie. Pray for me please to have strength during the day and the rest of the week, month, year, etc.!
