What if you could for one moment consider starting yourself over? Sort of like a new plant. It needs tending, tender loving care, the right foods, a just perfect location and most of all – personal attention.
Isn’t that what we all crave? Oh, we know that life has not always treated us fairly – or in truth, that we have not treated ourselves well at all.
Well, I am tired of myself. I need a change. In attitude and in action. So now is the time to get started (after all, I’m not getting any younger!).
There is an inspiring challenge going on over at Tiffany Lambert’s Claiming My Power blog. It’s a realistic get healthy type of challenge – we’re not talking training with Jillian at the moment – but things we can do for ourselves, right now. Starting – well, yesterday so we have a bit of catching up to do.
Tiffany mentioned a nutritionist that she trusts at Healthy Lifestyle Balance so I’m starting my day reading over the website, taking notes and readying myself to jump into this, determined to see results this time.
I believe it is a lie that older folks cannot lose weight and get themselves healthier. Certainly it may take longer than the younger generations because of natural aging issues — but I refuse to believe that it cannot be done.
I’m taking the challenge and will use this site to keep myself honest about it. I strongly suggest that you take a look at Tiffany’s challenge and consider joining in.
I’d love to take that wee, growing plant and turn it into a blooming beauty like this:
