It's not just your body that you need to take care of on this journey to health. It's too easy to get caught up in eating the right food at the right time, exercising and tracking everything. Before you know it, you have forgotten to live life and enjoy it.
It's also easy to lose sight of your relationships with the ones you love if you focus solely on yourself. The ones I love are two of the main reasons that I want to get healthy so that I can enjoy life with them. So today I have taken the day off work to celebrate Valentine's Day with both Hilary and Liam.
I'll be spending the morning at Liam's school receiving food from other parents, preparing trays for each class then serving buffet to Liam and his classmates for their Valentine's Day shared lunch.
Hilary and I will have some quality couple time with couple's massages at BodyMends! Afterwards we'll pick up some sushi (and chicken fingers for the kid) and have a nice family evening together.
I never want to lose sight of why I am doing this. Yes, I'm doing it for me, but for me to be happy, fulfilled and complete, I need my loved ones with me. Otherwise it would be a very healthy, but lonely life.
So today I will focus less on calories, portions and how many steps I've taken.
Today I focus on nourishing my soul.
Happy Valentine's Day!
