Trying to be healthy

For those of you that know me personally, you know that I am big night owl. I will stay up until 1 or 2am watching tv, surfing the internet, blogging, cleaning, etc. That is my time to unwind and have some peace and quiet.

However, it is not necessarily a good thing, seeing as how it keeps me in bed until 9:30-10am. I would like to start getting up earlier in the morning, actually eating breakfast (which I never do) and just getting my body on a better routine. I am always tired, and I know that is part of the problem.

Along with eating breakfast, I need to lay off the sweet tea, which is the other culprit to why I feel tired all the time. I am a true country girl, and that is my vice. I can drink a gallon a day sometimes. So, it's time for a little less of this:

And time for some more of this:

I am going to try really hard to start doing this. I have done it before, and I always felt great, but I always fall back into my old routine. Once we get moved, I am going to see about getting a treadmill or an elliptical as well.

For now though, I am just going to start to with the first goal of more water, eating right, and an earlier bedtime.

Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives- Titus 3:14

Very good points, Natasha! I started drinking lots of water a few months ago and I always feel so good. I have one soda a week and 1-2 glasses of sweet tea a week. That way, it's a treat, and not a habit. I'm so proud of you! :-)
