Getting healthy one step at a time

The truth is, I'm only two and a half years away from thirty. My body doesn't bounce back like it used to. Also, I don't try as hard as I used to.

I'm frequently told I am "too serious for my age". I've always been told that, but quite frankly, it's true. I am 27-going-on-forty. Except without all the "wisdom" of 40 years on this planet. Inside I feel old. 

If I were a movie character living my life, I would be a 40-year-old. (Three kids, bills & shut-off notices, marital trouble, foreclosure, working too much and enjoying too little.) My soul is old, and the part of me that wants to go bouncing down the sidewalk with a high ponytail and teensy little workout shorts is just plain TIRED. I am TIRED, DAMNIT! The emotional strain of each day is enough to drive me to drink. (Luckily I don't love alcohol, because I could have easily made a wonderful alcoholic. I definitely have the addictive personality for it.)

We're getting off-topic. 

The fact is that I am no longer a healthy person because I'm old and tired and unmotivated. I was once, and I was so proud of it. Not because I was skinny but because I was HEALTHY. And I miss it so much. 

Instead of proclaiming some 30-day get-into-awesome-pre-baby-shape plan, I am just going to share with you a few tips that I'm trying (if they work, that is), and one step at a time I will improve my overall health. 

This week I am trying these recipes: 


Refrigerator Oatmeal (which I found on Pinterest)
Green Smoothie (also Pinterest)

The goal is to start out the day healthier than cereal and coffee. And I've been walking. 

Gotta start somewhere, right? Baby steps.
