That is FANTASTIC!!! DH and I have been dragging each other towards healthier lifestyles for the last several years. It always seems like one of us is taking the lead and then we swap places after a while, it's a good system.
I think the hardest part of being healthier is making yourself start again every morning. Some days it's just harder to accomplish than others, but you just have to keep chipping away until little by little it becomes second nature.
It's definitely hard, especially being a pastry chef! Thanks for the motivation and good luck with your goals!
ding ding ding! That's the answer. Make it a habit. Habits are hard to form and easy to break. Just stick with it. Realize that this is a long term... life style.
I agree with things becoming habits. We just have to form new better habits. I can't go a day without my walks or exercise because now it is a new habit. My advice is set small goals. I started exercising and could not jump. I know it sounds funny but I was just happy to be able to get my feet off the ground once I kept working at it. It is those little accomplishments that will keep you going. Just take your time and know each day you will improve. Also, don't let set backs be an excuse to quit. There will always be bumps in the road and we just truck through them one day at a time. Good luck with your goals and welcome.
