I love her so much I'm going to post this horrible picture of myself. Luckily she looks great so you can just ignore me.
The other day while in the car she said "I didn't have the sausage because it wasn't the turkey sausage." Woohoo! You see, it starts with one small change. Once you get comfortable with that then you try another. And you keep going forward until you've made a lifestyle change. If you have an all or nothing attitude it can be hard. It's too easy to give up and choose nothing. Make that small change and be proud of it.
There is nothing more that I want from my mother than to see her healthy. Nothing. Why? Because one day my grandchildren are going to grow up and I want to share as many moments as I can with her. There are so many more moments that I want to share with her that involve my children. When Colton and Lucas get married (one day in the far, far, far future -- not rushing you boys), I want to have my mom by my side. When they have their children. I want my mom to be the first to call me with the exciting news -- just like she did with baby Anna.
For as long as I can I want my mom by my side to share every single experience with me. And it starts with turkey sausage.
As for me and my small changes... Do you know that I have exercised in some way every day so far this year. Nope, not one day off. You may think it's no big deal but it is to me. So I'm just going to keep moving forward and see how far that can get me.
My Daily Mile report also had the best stats so far. Since the Daily Mile focus is on running it looks kinda slackerish (other than the workouts part) but it's still been the best one overall since I started. So my goal for the remainder of the month is just to have my miles go up each week. I'm not going to say by some ridiculous amount or anything at all crazy but just go up each week. Just more.
Because one small change at a time is all you have to do to change your life. Forever.
What small change have you made recently?
