Healthy Mom - Week #2

Goals:  Moving my body despite Rheumatoid arthritis pain
Drink more water 
eat less wheat and sugar - low carb
Exercise: walk, swim, bike, light weights, yoga - just get moving! 

We are all about getting out into nature to explore God’s creation. I’ve allowed pain from RA to keep me from moving my body like I’m supposed to. Although I’ve continued with our adventures – I’ve allowed myself to sit by on the sidelines. The past 2 years, I’ve gained weight and slowed down. It’s a vicious cycle and I’ve decided enough is enough. I’m going to keep my focus on getting healthier for God and family during this series instead of worrying about the scale. By eating better, cutting out sugar, eating higher protein, lower carbs and drinking the water I know my body needs–I will begin to feel better and the weight will follow the health. It’s a struggle for those who fight pain every day to keep moving. I've recently lost these battles, but I’m determined not to loose the war.

This week: 
     Monday- perfect food green drink, water, low carb, walk on beach 
     Tuesday- water, low carb, crunches
