1st Day of School

We began our 2011-2012 school year yesterday morning.  It was a good day. 
I awoke to my alarm going off at 4:30 so I could get back into the routine of going to the Y in the mornings.  It was a good reminder of how much more I get done in the mornings when I go to the Y first thing.
I saw Scott off to work. 
The boys awoke in good moods and were more than pleasant getting up and moving.
School started in good measure and we had a very productive first day.
We enjoyed a swim at Nana's house after school..celebrating anything and everything poolside is always a great treat!
Worshipped at Church Wednesday evening...good time of fellowship with friends following the service.
My favorite moment of the day...
At bedtime, Alex came to me and gave me a big hug and said, "I had a great day with you today!  Love you so ready for another great day tomorrow?"
Yes, my sweet Alex.  Many times over.
A good day indeed.

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…
