GoodLife Fitness Giveaway

When Better Health Becomes Mandatory

We’ve just turned another page.  A new year has begun and many of us make the resolution to live a healthier lifestyle.  Few achieve this goal while others don’t.  I have been one of those people since 1994.

Life has always been good.  I bragged abouGoodLife Fitness Giveawayt how I was overweight but could run and still keep up with everyone around me.  Until I turned 40.   The aches started slowly, my ability to climb the stairs left me out of breath and embarrassed, and my first illness was revealed.  Yes, I had sleep apnea.

Over the holidays, I have been blessed with multiple levels degenerate disc disease along with a few herniated discs.  This week I have a series of tests to see why I have protein in my urine.  Hello diabetes?

Yes, my resolution for 2014 is a resolution that is no longer a WANT, it is a NEED.

Keeping it Simple

By keeping it simple, I plan on making small changes that will assist me in making the transition.  (I’ve always been an all or nothing type of person).   For those currently struggling at a young age with extra pound, please take note.  FAD DIETS DO NOT WORK!

This week I’ll be eliminating sugar from my coffee, the next week cream.  I will be taking brief walks and visiting my chiropractor for a tune-up every second day.

I will be going to GoodLife Fitness to work on some of the machines to revive some mobility through stretching and weights.   Yes, I know what I’m doing because I’ve done it so many times before.  I have been a GoodLife member in the past and I love its non-judgmental community and the support provided by the team and staff.
