I did this thing called ‘living’ over the last month. While I was ‘living’, we enjoyed visits from my in laws and some good friends. We experienced new sights, new venues and created fun memories.
I also took on a challenge; a weight loss challenge. And to be honest, you can’t really lose weight writing in a blog. Hence why you haven’t heard much from me! I started working out, running and changing what I eat and drink. What’s hilarious is that I thought I had sleep problems; nope, just needed to be more active during waking hours. You know, if we would all just listen to some pretty handy medical advice every so often, we might get somewhere. In my case, my doc kept telling me I should work out more as the endorphin’s would really help my mood. Or try changing up and making my diet more healthy; it’s good for you! Did I ever mention that I’m really stubborn?
All this happened because I paid attention to the interaction between me, my son and my husband. Our son wants to run wild and explore because, well, he’s a toddler! My husband and I were just beat and spent all the time. I just couldn’t go on living like that. I didn’t want to hold Lucas back from all the adventure he wanted and truly needs. So I decided to change pace and make the most of our very brief summer. I’ve been taking Lucas on my runs, we play in our community park, we have a weekly walk group, I am involved in yoga therapy and most importantly, we all sleep through the night and invest in better foods for more pure energy. I sometimes want to smack myself for always being so damn stubborn!
Needless to say, I LOVE LIVING! If you are reading this, it better be in audio format while you are enjoying the great outdoors!
