A new healthier me!!!

Ok so this week has been a turn around for me. I have really let my health get away from me. I am 30 lbs over what I should be and Most of you dont know bc I hid it well. I started smoking in high school, I quit for 3 yrs when I was prego with the boys and did fine with it, well about 6 months ago when our duplex flooded and everything was just stressful I started back up. I was so mad at myself for doing so. I kept telling myself I am going to quit but never did, well last week I said you know what dont only do it for yourself, do it for your kids. I would never smoke in the car, house, or around my kids at all but I still do not want them to think it is ok. Brent smokes which has made it so much harder and alot of my family smokes as well. But since monday I have had none and each day is easier.

On a second note, I have started dieting and working out. I have really just been doing portion control and low fat and sodium foods. I have been doing the biggest winner videos by Jillian Michaels. It is by far the toughest set of videos I have ever done. By the end you are sweating and out of breath but you feel great and like you are really gettin a good work out. I have felt better this week than I have felt in a really long time. So I am very proud of myself. I think alot of people take the easy way out by doing all these pills and detox systems, but what happened to just the old fashion, healthy way. eat right and exercise. I have never been one to take any kind of diet pill or supplement bc I feel they are not the right way to go and do more harm than good, sure you look good qicker but you also gain it back quicker. thats just my opinion, I'm sure it works well for some. But I am going to be healthier and more fit for my kiddos, Ty will start sports next year and I have to be ready :)

Oh that is too weird. I actually started the SAME workout videos this week. Oh my goodness!! They are hard. By far the hardest I have ever seen.

And congrats on quitting smoking!
