Finding Me Mondays....starting anew...well trying to!

So I took a break from Finding Me Mondays, to really try to figure out how to "find me"...I wasn't really going anywhere...but up on the scale and that isn't what I was hoping for so something just wasn't working....I think this will become more of a monthly update, but we'll see!

We joined a new gym that has a lot of energy and have been pretty good at getting there most days...albeit, not necessarily to work out ourselves, but we can play soccer on the indoor field with the boys or throw a football with them, swim indoors and in the summer really it is changing our overall lifestyle.  I am hoping it's a step in the right direction...I need something!  I won't be making my goal of fitting into the red dress this summer, but I've decided I'm okay with that as long as I am on the path to a healthy lifestyle not just for me, but for the entire family....

It means the house will be messier, we might eat at the gym's cafe more (but at least it's fairly inexpensive and healthy)...and our schedule at work will change to make more time for the boys at night and less days off....but hopefully it will all pay off in the long run!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can make a transition to a healthy lifestyle that pays off for our kids....and at least right now our boys ask to go to the gym every day!  Once our youngest gets past some of the separation anxiety, we'll drop them off in child care some evenings for more gym time...but for now, it's memory-making time!

Oh, and I also downloaded the Couch to 5K app, so we'll see how that plan is to start that next week once the body has adjusted to the time change...hoping that my heart can take the jogging!  I am still tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often!  I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!  I want them to be proud of me and know that I am healthy and will be there to take care of them!

Great first step! GETTING to the gym that first week is the hardest part! Once you start your rythm, it'll be second nature! Good for you to set the healthy example for your kids!
