Day 2: It's More Than Water

Today, I drank water.  A lot of water. And I exercised.

2013-07-23_09-02-59_416.jpgI can hear what you are thinking...how is this a risk?

Well, as a woman who wears many hats (Mom, wife, daughter, friend, housekeeper, taxi driver, referee, etc), I don't make time to take care of myself.  It takes a real effort for me to actually put myself first.  I mean, let's face it...to even sit here, in the quiet, I struggle with even taking some time to write this blog.  There are many things that I could be doing...but I am sitting here, loving myself.  
Yes...I am loving myself by making time for myself.  On this journey, I am learning that I can't truly love others until I take care of and love myself.

Today, I decided that I would put myself first and step into a healthier lifestyle, both physically and spiritually.  With the help of a good friend, I am embarking on a journey...to lose 10 lbs., eat healthier and to tone my body.  I will exercise every single day.  I will eat a more healthy, balanced diet.  I will drink more water!  

But above that, I DO LOVE myself....so I am going to be kind to myself,
 by investing time and energy into myself.

And that journey started today...with drinking FOUR water bottles full of ice cold water.
