My Inspiration

I thought that a quick break from our normal blog posts was in order. Our friend Dana is hosting her first Linky Party about things that inspire us. So I thought about what was inspiring me today and my daughter came to my mind. She is in the second grade and is big for her age. At her last dr appointment, the dr said that she needed to lose about 25 pounds. And in fact, so do I. So we both started eating healthy and exercising more. She has lost 5 pounds so far and I am so proud of her. She got me off the couch and off my computer because of her commitment to lose that weight. I even joined a Yoga salon and love, love going. So, here's to those extra 20 pounds coming off soon!!!

Wow! That's a great story, I hope you'll keep us posted on you and your daughter's progress. Check out my blog
http://teachtraintriumph.blogspot.com/ it's about teaching and but also but the other part of my life...running and working out, neither of which I did five years! I never thought of myself as an athlete and I'm so happy for that you have made this decision for you and your daughter. Pretty much the best gift over! Let us know how it goes :)

It is great that you are able to work together with your daughter to achieve your goal of getting healthier. I just read a story to my Kinders today that taught the lesson that we can get more done together than alone!

That is such a great story! I need to do the same thing...my sweet little 2nd grader is packing on the pounds, too. I think I'll take a page out of your book and start a family health challenge!! Best wishes to you and your daughter!

So inspiring! Our family is very active, but I wish that other families would see your inspiring story and "get off the couch".

It's so hard to get started, but then it feels so good being healthier, doesn't it? Keep up the good work!
