You know how I said I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions? Well, this isn’t one of those…. It’s just an attempt to get healthier. For all intents and purposes, I’m MIDDLE AGE. Seriously. Middle.Freaking.Age. And honestly? I don’t feel any different (on the inside) than I did when I was 15. (I just wish I could MOVE like I could when I was 15…)
So all my siblings texted me last week and said, “We’re doing Whole30, you need to join us! It will be so fun!” I laughed and said “Fun for YOU! Enjoy!” And then the next day, I totally had a panic attack (unrelated to any of this…just crazy life) and it felt exactly like a HEART ATTACK! Holy freaky. Seriously. So after a trip to the doctor, I’m feeling the need to change some things in my life. It seriously made me think about life and where I spend my time. Too much time working. That’s for sure. I need to spend more time with my family and doing things that make me a better, more Christlike human being. I’m overall pretty healthy, but if I want to have a good quality of life years from now, I need to spend more time on that too.
So my wife and 2 oldest daughters are joining in. We’re taking a step today at better health. Cleaner eating (LOTS of veggies and fruits!), more love for our bodies and ourselves, and just a realignment of priorities.
Wish me luck….please!!
