Get Healthy in the Rain!!
This is such a timely item for me and it seems like a lot of us here in the Rain. I have been feeling poorly, run down, yet at the same time I do not sleep well. This has all been playing on my mind. I went over to my oldest son Jacob’s home and had a discussion with him about three weeks ago. It went something like…
I don’t feel good anymore; everything hurts. I do not have the energy I used too. I am afraid if I do not make a change in my life I am heading for a heart attack or stroke or diabetes. So just in case – I want to tell you I love you.
You see the last few years I have gained weight consistently. It used to be I could eat anything I wanted and say skip dinner and I would be down two pounds by morning…. Well needless to say that’s not working anymore and I have to finally come to the realization I have to put more thought into what I eat, when I eat and how much I eat.
My son Jake is very much in shape. He works out almost every day, goes to the gym, eats right; has like 11% body fat… he is an athlete. As we talked about what I should be doing, it was decided he would be my coach. Someone I had to answer to sort of speak. (Believe you me; my poor son has his hands full.) Then again, I think he’ll be okay, since he is really a coach – in real life. See Jake has this uncanny ability to be able to hit this small white ball into a hole really far away and he teaches lots and lots of people. They of course pay him for this. I feel pretty lucky that I can have him as my coach for free!!
In order to Get Health Here in the Rain my goal is by May 24th 2013 that I lose 25 pounds. Since I started I have lost about 6 pounds. That came off pretty easily and now I am in a holding pattern. So I have to start exercising more. I don’t like the gyms and its winter here, 16 degree and snow. I am going to have to be creative to keep me interested…. Any ideas? Also I need to make sure I am setting time aside to exercise. Thanks for all your support and help.
