I have been having a reflective weekend, one where I go from one thought to the next which then brings me to the next one... Maybe that is why I don't sleep, I have so many thoughts going on in my head that I don't give myself enough down time. I think giving ourselves the gift of time is the best gift we can give... I am really grateful that I am going to be joining The Canada Games Center this week, I feel like this will be giving myself time. While I am there, whether I am running, swimming, doing a Zumba class... I will be giving time to myself to get healthy.
Valentina asked me how long we would be going, I told her for as long as she wanted... that made her happy, this is something she and I can do together and we will have time to chat on the bus on the way home every night. I am happy that this will bring us closer together... especially since she will be a teenager before I know it and that is a little scary for me. My Valentina is a really sweet little girl but I am not burying my head in the sand, she will be a teenager soon and it changes even the best of girls. I really think that spending all this time getting healthy together will help her and I stay close.
Once I join this week, I am going to weigh and measure myself and start keeping track... I will just check in weekly with both of these. Once I feel more comfortable, I will share my stats... I will update you all with the amount of weight I lose as well as all the activities I participate in. I feel like this is the beginning of a long journey but one that will be worth all the effort...
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
