First and foremost HOLY WOW and THANK YOU all for your tremendous support. I feel as if I have the biggest support team ever for this healthy journey of mine. Seriously I can’t let you all down and most of all I can’t let myself down. I owe it to my kids and family to take the best possible care of myself and for too long I have let this very important facet of my life just sit at the sidelines with no real importance. When really it’s so very important to take care of our (as my friend Vanessa best said it) “vessels which hold our beautiful souls” Our bodies are gifts and we should treat them as such. So once more, thank you so very much for all your enormous support, it means so very much to me. I may post recipes or food here or there but I will not post progress but once a month as not to overwhelm myself or anyone else watching. I’m not here to elaborate on all my past fails. This is by far not my first attempt at good health but it is a new day and a new year and looking forward will be much healthier.
Yesterday I took my word CHANGE serious and attended a small gathering with Abbie and her new friends from her new school with new mom’s I had not met. Normally I would avoid this sort of thing at most every cause. I don’t really want to meet new people and talk about things that are small talk. Plus I’m really extremely shy. But I went and my best encouragement came from my only and littlest girl, she said “Mom, you are the most creative and crazy mom I know! you will be okay” Crazy, yes. In my own comfort zone but not among strangers. It went better than great. The women were really welcoming and beautiful inside and out. I’m so happy I made the change and went. I think this word is going to turn my life upside down.
I also took a few minutes of my day and took pictures of the graceful tulips we brought home from Trade Joes. I decided to take them from various angles. Just more practice you know. I love watching them bend and open.
