A Change Would Do Me Good

(Can’t get that song out of my head! “I think a change (a change would do you good) would do you good.)

It’s time for a change. A big change. A lifestyle change.

Why? So glad you asked. You see, yesterday was the first day that I felt 100% back to normal. A week and a half ago, I woke up with a god-awful sore throat, headache, and total grogginess. I had a minor sore throat the night before, but didn’t think anything of it. Now, since then I’ve had a sore throat and general ickiness. There have been times when I’ve felt better, but then I crash again.

I am taking this as a big old fat hint. I need to change my lifestyle.

1. Healthy Eating! This includes breakfast every day. No more unhealthy, crappy, junk food. Lots of fruit and vegetables!

2. Exercise! Every day. I want to take a walk with Alex every day, weather permitting. I have a work out DVD that I am going to start doing regularly!

3. Quit the bad habits! No regular drinking. On occasion, but not more than once a week. And we wont discuss the shameful smoking that occurs too regularly except to say it’s going to stop.

4. Better sleep habits. Get in bed between 10 and 10:30, read for a while, and then sleep. That way getting up at 7:00 will be reasonable. No more tired mornings if I can get enough sleep!

I’m sure there are more things that I need to do, but that is a good start. This illness was a kick in my butt to get moving! I need to make a change, and that change is coming.

Starting tonight. I will go to bed early. I will wake up early tomorrow morning. I will eat breakfast with Alex, I will work out, I will take a walk with Alex, I will eat a healthy lunch and cook a healthy dinner. Screw this sick stuff. I’m over it!
