Oh, what fun!

Saturday morning we layered up and set off for downtown Atlanta for the annual Christmas parade. We've gone to the big parade several times since the boys were born...we sometimes choose our hometown parade, but going to Atlanta at Christmastime is something special.
This year things went especially smooth...found a parking garage close to the parade route; the parade began at the same moment as when we stepped to the curb; it wasn't too cold (at the beginning at least); we were at the start of the parade route with front row seats and no crowd around us; and leaving was a breeze since we were at the beginning of the parade.
Lunch was at Mary Mac's following the parade...yum!
It was a perfect way to spend a December morning with the family!

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
