A few of us have decided to share our Healthy Adventures with you in a weekly post called "Let's Get Healthy Together". Please join us in reading about our adventures and sharing yours OR by providing us some encouragement in the comments! We need it!
You can read my previous Get Healthy posts here to get all caught up.
I have also shared these posts:

Starting My Day Off Right
A Busy Week!
Well, although we should be focussing on our health all of the time, no matter what the circumstances, I have to admit that it has been VERY challenging for me to have the proper mind set these past two weeks as I've been tied up with some personal things. When you're stressed, worried and tired, it is challenging to take care of yourself, even though during those circumstances, you should take extra care of yourself.
I have been tempted many times during the past two weeks to just let it all go and not worry about my weight, about healthy eating or about exercise. However, my friend over at the Knit Wit by Shair reminded me how hard I've been working and that I shouldn't give in to my temptations.
I also read my friend's post about how important sleep is and this is something I've been lacking too.
So no more! Starting right now, I am going to remind myself each and every day (multpile times per day) that I deserve to be healthy. I am going to remind myself of those positive messages that do wonders for so many of us! This will help me to feel better about myself and will hopefully guide me to become more focussed on my health.
So, will I enjoy a slice of apple pie that my amazing neighbour brought over? Yes I will! But, will I enjoy half of the pie like I used to? NO WAY! I am going to remind myself through positive self talk that it is ok to have a treat, but it is not worth it to let go of all the hard work I have been doing over half of a pie! It's all about the long term goal of my health and my happiness.
