The changes that I'm about to make in my home have been coming for a while. We've been taking baby steps for several years but it's time to take big steps and finally move forward.
We're kind of walking in place right now and that's not doing anyone any good.
We're going to be working with Leslie Gail from New Life Focus and we've signed up for 3 months of support, recipes and accountability.
I say WE because I'm dragging my husband and children along on this journey with me. This is a group effort and I'm determined to succeed!
One of the main reasons for these changes is that I want my husband to live for a long time. He's going to be 50 this year and we have small children; I want him to be around to see them grow into awesome people.
I have a friend on twitter that just lost her husband two weeks ago. He was 44 and he died of a heart attack. This scares the hell out of me! I'll do anything...including eat tons of spinach and kale, to keep my husband alive longer.
Even though he yelled at me at The Container Store the other day and I threatened to kick his ass....I love him very much and I need him around.
