Lately, I feel like life has been whizzing by. It's not that I haven't been enjoying the ride, but I feel like I'm taking a lot for granted. The fact that time is flying has been most evident in my almost-three-year-old daughter. She's starting to look so little-girlish, and the toddler days are starting to fade behind her. Everyday she does something that makes me think, "When the heck did she start doing that?!". I started thinking yesterday about how fast time is going.
I'm starting to realize that life can pass me by, as I become preoccupied with other things (especially the kids!). I need to make sure that I stop to smell the roses, and appreciate what I have, especially as far as my health goals are concerned.
I always tend to focus on what I'm not doing right, and how I could be doing so much more. And then I feel guilty.
So here are three health-related things that I'm grateful for:
1. Running a 5K!
2. Losing 10lbs and getting to my pre-pregnancy weight with my son. Sure, I have a LONG way to go, but it's a start.
3. Exercising at least three times a week. Even if it's a stroller walk.
Here's to focusing on the positive, and continuing to work towards goals.
p.s. I'm going to visit with my English teacher from high school today! I haven't seen her in about, oh, fifteen years. She was a big inspiration to me, so this should be fun!
