Time To Refocus

Last week was a wake-up call for me. The woman who prides herself on not going to the doctor until she's half-dead, was there twice. Two days in a row, to be exact. It wasn't pretty. I saw my weight, which was horrifyingly high. My blood pressure was spiking. I had a bad case of vertigo. I felt horrible. I found myself sitting in the office, talking to the nurse practicioner, and I thought, "What am I doing to myself?" My health has gotten totally out of hand. Something has to change. Everything has to change.

I saw this on Pinterest not long after those appointments, and I thought it was the perfect inspiration:

I've treated my body as a trash can for too long now, and I'm paying the price for it. It's time to make some major changes. I know that change won't happen overnight. I know it's going to take some time to repair the damage, lose the weight, change my eating habits, and feel better. I also know that I have to start somewhere. So once again, I'm starting where I am.

I'm doing Claire's febYOUary challenge at Peak 313 fitness. I'm tracking my eating habits again on My Fitness Pal. (I'm here if you want to add me as a friend: ). I'm reassessing my goals and what I need to be focusing on.

It's time for change. This time next year, I want a lot of things in my life to look different. It's time to make a plan, then make it happen.


  1. Bravo! The biggest barrier to change is the first step--and you've taken it! My daughter uses My Fitness Pal and loves it ;).

  2. Yay for making the decision to take that first step! It totally changes the perspective when you think of your body as the Temple of the Holy Spirit, I know it has for me. The journey always starts with those first steps. I stopped by from the MustLoveGod Thursday link up! :)

  3. I hate and love those kinds of moments. Because it's a great wake-up call, but also horrifying. I'll pray for you to have some goals and reach them!


I would love to hear your thoughts!
