“This is too Hard…”: Part 1-

I got an e-mail from a reader that expressed concern that my blog seemed too extreme for this late 30’s aged mom to follow.  She didn’t make any changes to her eating habits or workout schedule because she felt so overwhelmed by the example diary that I live.

I appreciate the feedback, but let me be clear; I love my food plan because it tastes great, gives me tons of energy for a mid 40’s mom ( of 5 young kids due to the blessing of a 6 and 8 year old stepdaughters).  Another benefit of the way I eat is that it’s cheaper than eating restaurant food, and helps me keep the physique that I want.

I exercise the way I do because exercise is a huge stress release for me, helps me control my chronic back pain, and because I love the look of shapely arms and legs.  Plus, as I said regarding my diet, exercise doesn’t make me tired, but rather, actually gives me energy.  I always feel better after working out, even if I felt sluggish when I began.

Now, I’ve given you all my reasons for my lifestyle choices, but here is some important advice:   There is no wrong ‘first step’.  Any step is better than not doing anything!  Tomorrow I’ll share some ideas of how to get started so let’s work on this together.
