This being physically fit is one thing I really have a hard time with. I don't know why, I used to walk 4 miles a day with a friend and was always happy after we got home. I think it's because I had time to talk with another woman and also just getting out in the open air. However, since I got ill with celiac disease 3 years ago (oh wait, it's been 4) I haven't been as motivated. It's not that the celiac effects me in anyway that would make it hard for me to do physical activities, I just lost my motivation and I need to find it again. Sad thing is it's not like lost keys or change in the couch. It takes a lot more committment to find it.
So heres what I've decided. You know that old adage "early to bed, early to rise", guess we're going to give that a try. In the past people would have called me a morning person but now that I don't have to get children up and out of the house it's easier to just lay in bed longer. This definitely needs to change. Don't you love the mornings, especially now when you can hear the meadow larks singing through the windows.
A certain change that definitely needs to be made and that the sugar industry would try to stop is my SUGAR addiction. I know addiction is a hard word, but I really think I've become addicted. I have cravings morning, noon and night!! And after the goodies are consumed I don't generally feel as well. So even though I know this will be a really hard change and that there are going to be days of headaches and tiredness to begin with, I have great hopes of feel better in the long run. Not so sure about artificial sweetners as there are so many conflicting reports regarding them. But for now the change will be with sugar!
