The Beginning of the End
I am now 32 years old and in the worst shape of my life. While I was looking through old college pictures, I realized how far I let myself go. Sure I have given birth to two children, but that is no excuse. Both of my parents died at young ages from massive heart attacks. My daughter asked me to buy a fitness video so we could get me less fat. She said she was worried I would die like my mother. So, today I prayed that God would heal my heart and forgive me for the way I treat my body. I am going to set goals and meet them. I am sure there will be failures along the way, but I will not back down. I want to live to see my girls grow up. I also want to be able to enjoy exercising with them. Today is the beginning to the end of an unhealthy life style. My goals this week are to walk at least a mile a day and to sleep 8 hours a night. I am also going to start weening myself off sugar and bread. Pray for me as I start this new life style. Also, share your success stories or words of advice.
