Baby Steps.

January 18, 2010

I want Malone to grow up with healthy ideas about food and excercise. I want him to know that it is important to eat local whenever he can- it is tastier and better for the environment because the food doesn’t have to travel as far to get to us.

In order for me to give these ideas to Malone, I need to change.

It is so easy to grab junk- frozen pizza, chinese take out, grinders.

It is so easy to not be active- especially in winter.

These things need to change.

I need to make over my life in small baby steps. Manageable steps mean that I am more likely to keep at this. It’s important to me that I keep at this.

Steps for this week.

1. Drink more water and less diet coke.

2. Get active for 30 minutes everyday. Go for a walk, sneak off to the gym, get on the Wii fit.

3. Buy local eggs, milk, and butter. Dust off my bread maker and make bread. Make granola.

Next week I’ll check in and let you know how it went.

    HI NJ,
    I really honor your heart – how much you want to be a role model for Malone, how you want to teach him what’s important and how to be healthy. It’s really hard to make big changes so I think you’re doing great with taking things a little at a time and I know your intention to work on balance. This is lifelong work. Eight and half years ago, I started to change my life – I was given the gift of change, both the inside and the out. I am maintaining a 110 pound weight loss and sanity in my life I never thought possible. I am sending you support and love in the process.
