It has been so long, too long. I miss writing, I miss my fellow bloggers and I miss the sense of accomplishment I received from blogging challenges.
So here I am! Fresh! And I am scared. And I am excited. I wish I actually knew where to start. Lets just jump right in.
Last time I blogged I had just started my gluten free journey. (NO THIS WILL NOT BE ANOTHER GLUTEN FREE BLOG) I spent many years suffering and denying the fact that I had severe fibromyalgia. Well I am in denial no more and have accepted help. Keeping to the advice and staying strong is hard. I feel the last few months I have been having such a hard time. I need to be more careful. I need to pay closer attention. Most importantly I need to keep my will strong through all of this.
Fibro is very hard to deal with especially as an active single mom who works her butt off. Taking a day cause I don't feel good can't happen. Getting sick hurts more than just my ego, or my body.
So I joined in with my fellow gagers from my last weight loss challenge. I know that if I stay healthy and gluten free, one- I can loose all this painful swelling weight. Two- I can be more active and in less pain. Three- I can feel better about myself. Four- I can comfortably fit into all my cloths again.
I think the most important is the swelling and the pain. I need to get rid of them. They hurt me every day. I have severe fibro fog sometimes. And worst of all some days I am just down right unmotivated.
The great thing is I have wonderful help. For the past year and a half I have been using the isagenix products and they help me so much. To rid my body of toxins and to keep me full of nutrition that even tho I eat mostly organic my food can still not give me.
I have a few goals with this challenge most to be healtier. Going to the gym is damn near impossible. And even tho I am actually on the injured list for another two weeks I just bought myself the ps3 move and 3 games. Including ea active. Which helped me lose all my pregnancy weight.
Being active is going to be my hardest challenge. My goal is to work out at least 4 times a week for 1 hour. I know this is going to be such a shock for my body but I will live. I need this. Also the healtier the food I put into my body the eaiser it will be for me to work out. One step at a time.
The other part to all of this is getting sleep. I am amazing at skipping sleep. I can't do this. So as it nears 10pm. I bid you all good night. Till tomorrow.
Sweet dreams bloggers
