We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. ~ Aristotle

Always good to try something new.

My first Blog post. I have begun so many new things in the last half of this year that a blog seemed like a good idea. I have learned how important a positive attitude is, I have surrounded myself with positive people and things. After years of struggling with my weight and more recently watching my kids begin their own struggle with weight. There was no question that I had to make changes, I could no longer hide behind my excuses of "hating to cook" as a reason for our unhealthy diet, and no money for a gym membership or kids sports activities as the reason for our lack of activity.  So our family invested in home workout DVD's and began working out but our eating did not change much, and while we felt better for working out we did not see any significant weight change. So I have had to step up and pay more attention to what we were eating and since then we have begin to see results and even though we still have a long way to go; we are forming new habits and learning new things along the way.  So why not blog about it? :)
