Shocker, two posts in one day....
Well years ago, my blog started out as a way to journal my attempt at a healthy lifestyle. FAIL!
Some things have been going through my mind and I need to make some changes.
My nephew and I had a conversation. I know he is only 7. I told him that one day that I am going to adopt a little boy or girl of my own. He told me that I could not. That he was enough for me. He was not keen on another child receiving my love. This conversation led into babies in bellies. He informed me I could not adopt a baby because my belly was too big and looked like it had a baby in it. WOW! Out of the mouths of babes. It hit home . I have been in a slump for several months now and have not been taking care of myself. The scale has not budged in either direction but the muscle is now fat again.
Fast-forward one day. My good friend's mom had another heart problem this week. I inquired as to whether her grandfather or grandmother had heart problems. Indeed they did. Her grandfather died of a massive heart attack and had four heart attacks in four years. HELLO! My Dad has heart disease and had has had open-heart surgery twice. I know it can be hereditary yet lately I have done nothing about it. Why am I doing this to myself? I don't want to be old and decrepit because I was lazy and uncontrollable.
Why? Why have I allowed my slump in life to affect all aspects of my life? It is time to pull out and try to fix what I can. My body I can. I actually enjoy exercise when I get in the groove. It takes a good while to get in the groove though. So I will attempt again to get back in the groove and do something about my body and my health. It will take time and perseverance but I am going to try that GROOVE again.
