Decisions. We make them all day! As easy and quick or as intricate and time consuming as they may be, they are vital to our success and happiness. As I get older, decisions in regards to my health and wellness are much more important. The choices that I make may prevent me from forming lifestyle illnesses for my "Future Self".
So this week was impactful in many ways. First, I set my standards for the way I want to parent our teenagers. Secondly, I identified with the traits that are important to me in ordert to be a loving wife. As far as our businesses, friendships and the outside world, I decided to make better decisions that were from a place of integrity and appropriateness, with boundaries, patience and balance. In terms of my health, I made some lifestyle decisions after doing some soul searching and long term goal setting for myself.
I thought that I had come a long way in the world of nutrition and fitness. Over the years, I have transformed myself from being a person who was a former mountain dew, snickers girl, who didn't like to workout to a woman who loves to exercise, eats healthy and generally thinks positively. I have invested thousands of hours learning and studying the field of physical training and nutrition. I am a certified Personal Trainer. I am certified in Sports Nutrition, and I teach several group fitness classes each week. This 52 Week Journey finds me wanting to increase my expectations for my well-being and commit to bigger decisions. Since I am dedicated to helping others create healthier lifestyles, I believe that I you have to Walk the Walk, not just Talk the Talk! I never want to settle....I want to continue to challenge my strength, endurance and abilities. I hope that my body holds out and that my positivity continues for years to come. One of my greatest achievements will be when I am an inspiration to our children and to others who may doubt themselves.
So I will embrace the opportunity to be able to choose. I am excited about the new and improved person that I can become, and I am excited to increase my strength training, eat better and feel great for another 50 years! Now on to Week #7!
