One year ago this week, I made a decision.
A decision that would change my life.
I decided to get healthy.
I didn’t go on a diet.
I didn’t starve myself.
I didn’t start working out only for a short time and then quit.
I wasn’t even quite sure what my plan was.
But I did know that I was committed to getting healthy.
I knew that I was six months away from turning 40.
I knew that I was out of shape.
I knew that I wanted to stop the yo-yo dieting cycle I had been on for most of my adult life.
I was sick of it!
And now, a year later, I feel great.
I am still working on making healthy food choices. Continuously.
I workout 4-6 times per week.
I engage in community with people who encourage and support me.
I challenge myself to do something new.
To run farther. To try a new workout. To push myself harder.
Am I exactly where I wanted to be? No.
But, the results have been encouraging.
I am smaller. I feel alive. I feel happy. I feel strong.
I trust that I can continue to live a healthy lifestyle.
It starts with choices. Every day you have the option to make them.
What choice can you make today to live a healthier lifestyle?
