Healthy Is Worth It

Ok my cyber/blogger friends, this Sunday I turn 34... yes I said my age lol.  For a while I’ve been bragging and telling my husband how I want to lose weight, or how I want to be healthier and exercise more, blah, blah and blah.  Because all I did was talk but no action.  Well yes there was action of me eating whatever I could. 

So I have decided that now that I will be 34 I need a huge change in my life regarding health.  See this is MY STORY:  When I was 15 I got my first period and after that I’ve been and still am irregular.  Therefore I have always suffered from chronic anemia.  When I turned 20 I started to smoke cigarettes and I quit at 22.  Then at the age of 27 after a rough divorce from my first marriage I began to smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol.  Lord knows I do not blame anybody for these decisions but myself.  When I turned 30 I decided to quit smoking and drinking (I’m not going to lie I have my glass of wine occasionally) When I remarried in 2012 and moved to NC, I was all into making my husband a happy husband by cooking him these delicious (fattening) meals; but within time we both gained weight and we weren’t even exercising as much as we were suppose too.

Well something happened!!! I had a reality check and woke up from that fantasy island I was at.  I realized that I’m not a teen anymore, my metabolism is slow, and I need to get up from my booty and do something about it.  So I decided to make a change.  A change for me and my husband; we are now eating clean. 

There is a saying that we are what we eat.  I would have been a hamburger/pizza/pasta all in one lol.  I made a choice for my family; I want to put in my body healthy foods.  I want a healthy lifestyle, and I want to prepare my body for my miracle baby that I know God will grant me soon. 

This post is not for you to judge on my past but to inspire others in starting a healthy lifestyle. On January 13, 2014 I took a picture of weight, front body, side body and back body (I will not post today I’m too embarrassed lol) But to give you a hint on where I am my height is 5 feet 5 inches and I’m my weight is 147.4 and I feel super uncomfortable in my own skin right now.  My goal is to be at least 125-130 lbs. 

What I will be doing is mainly cutting on all the sugars, sodas, carbohydrates, red meats.  I can’t stick to one specific diet or healthy nutrition like Paleo, Vegetarian, Etc.  So we are doing a little of everything. I will be blogging recipes, exercises, pictures of my progress and other healthy topics in different blogs. 

Wish Me Luck!!!
