I used to watch my kids play, now I play with them.
When did I finally wake up? I was 38 years old and had just had my 3rd child. We were on house number 3 and I was climbing the corporate ladder. From the outside, someone might say we had it all. But I was tired, sluggish, basically got myself going on coffee rushed through the commute, worked all day at a job that at the time was inspiring and I was on a mission. I'd come home it would be dinner time, the kids were home from school and just a life of chaos. Finally, 10:30 p.m. and I'm heading into bed and setting my alarm for 4:30 a.m. to start again.
Whew! It's exhausting just thinking about it. Weekends are where it really hits me. The time I could engage in running and playing with the kids in the park or at the house or going for a bike ride and all I wanted to do was sleep and catch up from the week.
And then I met someone that introduced me to the process of making small simple changes. The first started with proper hydration. The best formula for how much water you should drink is ½ your weight in ounces. So, if you weigh 150 lbs., you should drink 75 ounces of water throughout the day. Dehydration is responsible for dozens of physical symptoms and illnesses, as is mineral deficiency. Consuming ionic minerals along with increased amounts water not only enhances hydration but will help raise your body’s pH and improve overall health, help manage weight, curb appetite, improve digestion, sleep, skin tone, and much more.
When you give your body what it needs on the inside, the outside starts to change. Your lose some weight you gain some energy and confidence. I lost 25lbs and it's been 10 years and I continue to keep it off. My kids are older now and as am I and it's been 10 years since I've continued small changes and choices. I'm still active with my kids. We ski, boat, golf and are involved in lifestyle activities together. It all started with one small decision, one small choice.
