My Health, My Number 1 Priority...or at least it will be from now on.

I am so tired of being TIRED! And of making excuses for myself and why I am not working out and getting healthy! That ends today RIGHT NOW! I don't want to be the 24 year old sitting at a baseball game in jeans, instead of shorts, because of the size of her thighs. I don't want to be the girl who gets the chaffing on the inside of her thighs because of how much she sweats that her jeans rub her legs raw. I don't want to be the young fat mom that can't keep up with her kid! I WANT to be the young, healthy, fit mom who can wear shorts and not worry about chaffing and keep up with my very, very energetic 2 year old son!
I want to be healthy and I want to know what "runners high" is all about! 
So, here we go, who wants to come along with me?

Making the Time/Making Health a Priority
My new number one priority is to MAKE THE TIME to workout.
Getting healthy is PRIORITY NUMERO UNO! 
No more excuses...something has to change.
-Go to bed early, by 1030pm
-Wakeup early, by 630am
Making  my health, thus making myself, FIRST PRIORITY, will make everything better. 
I will be getting up and getting my workouts in early in the day, BEFORE my son wakes up. This has been my number one obstacle. A lot of the time if I don't get it in early in the morning time just gets away from me and I DON'T get it in. I have to do my workouts in the morning because of how energized I am after. If I do them at night I end up staying up super late. 
Of course there are many other things going into this plan, like, eating healthy, drinking water, not drinking soda, staying away from fast food, etc. 
I will be using a combination of Couch to 5K program, Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD, Boot Camp Bikini Bod DVD, and I also have a Kettlebell DVD and set of kettlebells. Eventually, I will add the use of P90X to my DVD rotation. So, seems simple...i just have "JUST DO IT"!!!
Have a great weekend and Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms out there!


  1. Awesome post, love those explosions of motivation that remind you why you want to get healthy! And - Happy Mother's Day! ♥

  2. Wonderful post!! I know what it's like to feel tired all of the time. It leads to a vicious cycle of inactivity, boredom, and for me, overeating. I'm glad to hear that you're getting motivated! I'm finally feeling some motivation myself. I think it's been a very long winter.

  3. Health should be everyones first priority and therefore weight loss is a must prerogative to keep maintaining it.very nice sharing here.gastric bypass surgery Los geles
