Healthy Living Habits


I am not healthy. I’m 60 lbs overweight, can barely run, on medication for depression, have a really bad sweet tooth, have little energy for dealing with my kids or keeping the house clean, and I could go on. I would like to be healthy. I’ve tried many different things, many different times. My problem is that I can’t keep it up. I always start with an over abundance of enthusiasm, thinking I’ll change my whole life in the next month. All I have to do is run every day, quit eating sugar, and get a cleaning schedule going. Easy-peasy.

I’m finally getting older and wiser. I’ve decided to start very small, and keep the change up until it’s a habit before starting another one.

My first change was to remember to take my medication every day. I know, its not a very big step. But it’s something that I’ve struggled with. I set an alarm on my phone for everyday at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. to remind me. I’ve now gone 2 whole weeks without forgetting! Yay me! Now I’m ready for my next healthy change.

I’m going to drink a 1/2 gallon of water every day, for 2 weeks straight. If I miss a day, I start over. I’m hoping to feel better, and not get as many headaches if I’m fully hydrated.
