Wow...I can't believe its been a couple of weeks since I last posted. I seem to have a thousand ideas through the day of things that would make a great blog topic, but finding the time to sit and write them is becoming more and more scarce. I guess I have to resort to scheduling my "free time" where I plan to blog.
I wish the title of this post referred to me getting to travel, but the road I'm on again is of a different kind. I'm back on the road to trying to get healthy.
When I decided to start writing, I told myself that I would not turn this into a blog about weight - or more specifically about losing it. I have struggled with my weight...always. I have been on every fad diet imaginable and...well you know how the rest of this paragraph goes. It's a continuous yo-yo. The worst part is it is not rocket science - eat healthy, everything in moderation and exercise every day. So simple...yeah right. Life gets in the way of making the choices we know are the right ones.
So while I will not chronicle my journey here, every now and then I may rant a little (when my sugar cravings get the best of me), but the rants will pass. For now, I want to focus on making better choices so that I can chase my girls in a game of tag without my knees burning. Don't get me wrong - getting to wear cute clothes and hearing the compliments are a motivator too. And that may be how I keep my eye on the prize. In the end, though, the prize truly is feeling better.
Just wish I could get to the prize drinking wine and eating cheesecake. For now, I'll imagine my water tastes like chocolate :-).
So here is my first rant - I'm working with a system right now that will help to get rid of the toxins from my body. Sounds fabulous - BUT it means no caffeine. NO. CAFFEINE. I'm a sucker for punishment I know - I have already warned the people around me that I will not be pleasant over the next few days, and I apologized in advance. For anyone I missed, I'm sorry. You have my permission to tell me where to go - just don't mention Starbucks and no one gets hurt.
