For over a year now, I have been reading all about the Mamavation ladies and how they are becoming healthier and learning to take control of their lives. There were times when I was jealous of how well they were doing, but at the same time, I was very happy for them. When I turned 45 this month, several things jumped out at me. I am now the age my paternal grandma was when she passed away. She had heart disease, and a massive heart attack took her away from me when I was five. My daughter just turned 13, and I want to be around to enjoy watching her grow up, and I want to be a grandma some day.(At least 15 YEARS down the road)
I have decided to join the ladies of Mamavation, and pledge to getting healthy. This past weekend was not great for me, because we are still moving and I did not take time to cook. Hubby brought home some fast food...however...I have been working my butt off. I am going to the grocery store when my mom gets here in the morning, and purchasing some healthy food to cook! Fast food is out, and this mom is pledging to become a lean, mean, healthy machine!!
