Me, Myself and EVERYONE ELSE!!!

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Man oh man do I love my grandkids! And my husband, kids, friends, church, activities, volunteering...ect...... I knew it but until just recently has it become a real reality.....we must MAKE time for ourselves. I found myself slacking on the exercise so I could do fun things with the grandkids. I found myself making kid food for them and hubby's favorites and just grabbing a salad or something healthy but not anything I really wanted just then. Even broke a streak because I was not focused on me for at least a moment each day. Well today I turn a corner. I am coming first and NOT feeling guilty about it. I will log in, exercise and eat right and track...do all the things I know I need and want to do. IF I DO THIS, I'll be here longer for them! Wow I just talked myself into that one while blogging!!!! So my friends, I think from now on it might just be me, myself and I.. I.. I. At least until the log in, exercise and tracking is over LOL!!! Then take a number and I WILL get to you.

    Debi, what a wonderful opportunity to teach your grandkids healthy eating and habits! Try some new recipes out on them. Let them help you with the cooking. Find an activity that you can enjoy with them. I recently started taking a water exercise class, and was surprised that what we're doing in that class is not unlike how I remember playing in the community pool as a kid. I've heard the Wii Fit is good, and probably something you could also do with your dh and grandkids.

    LOVE IT!! We do tend to leave ourselves out. Just keep on 'keepin on'. You will get and stay healthy, but still give of yourself to your family and friends...just in a different order.
    Thanks for posting.
