The First Step Is the Hardest....

A few years ago my husband gave me a IPOD with those words engraved on the back of it. The words were meant as encouragement. It's taken me a long time to take those steps, but after a life altering experience last week I have given up the only addiction I have and that's drinking coke. I've joined a wonderful fitness community, and I've started exercising. I have needed to make these changes for a long time, and with what has happened and in light of the fact that I am still here today for some unknown reason, then it's my chance to change and take those steps and do what's needed to be done.
I have a wonderful friend who's encouraging me, a fabulous hubby who's right there offering positive support and encouragement and a fantastic daughter who'll let me know how much she loves me at just the right time. Who can go wrong with all that support.
I've already started an exercise program, and the food monitoring is being done all by the fitness site I have joined. It's as easy as 123 and believe you/me I've needed that; fitness site for dummies, to help me as I'm not good at tracking what I've ate and this site makes it super easy.
I've taken the first steps, they were the hardest, now it's just a matter of being motivated and doing what I know needs to be done.
One day at a time, and one step at a time.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
