This is my first of hopefully many Mamavation posts.
This will be my pledge post.
I have been working on trying to get fit and get healthy for years now. I have tried some fad diets. I have tried committing to a work out routine. You know what though, I keep failing at the follow through. Very very sad.

I actually like working out as silly as it sounds. I like running, I like working with the heavy bag. I like being outside. I suck at commitment though, at least where my health is concerned. I have no trouble finding an excuse why I can’t do it. Right now it’s the weather. Though it’s silly because I like being outside and I don’t mind it once I’m out it’s just getting out. My kids are another excuse I use far too often. They, thought are my reason for needing to get into shape. Really it boils down to being lazy. I really have no other push then the push inside me and it like to rest as well.
Alas exercise is only part of the issue

Food, what glorious food. I love to cook and I love to bake. This past year I have been on a quest of making healthier choices. It is working I am getting better. My food choices are much more aware of what I am eating. We are have real food! I don’t do pre packaged foods. I don’t do fake ” low fat” “fat free” processed stuff. The problem is treats, snacks and desserts. I love them. I like to eat them, they taste yummy. I keep them to a lower number then before, the problem is WHEN it eat them. I eat them once all the children have gone to bed and I remember that there are goodies in the cupboard and I want to eat them. I have a problem I have an addiction to sugar I know I need to stop, but I feel crazy sometimes.
I wonder if I knew I was actually accountable to someone other then myself if I could kick the sugar bug.
I will really push harder to keep my commitments. This is a new year about to start. While I can’t recreate where i have been I can start now and change the ending!
I’m hoping the Sistahood can help me keep on track. I’m motivated to getting healthy and helping others along their way. Go 2013!!!
