Setting a good example

  • Location: Yorba Linda,
As a single mother to a 10 year old, I make it a priority to stick to good habits that I believe will help me to stay healthy and set a good example to my son. I have completely stopped drinking coffee daily, which was surprisingly easy to do once I started exercising early in the mornings. I wake up at 5am every day to either go to the pool and swim with my local masters swim team or I go for early morning runs outside. I average of 5 days of rigorous exercise for at least 60 minutes or more. I do this before I take my son to school and then later start my work day. Since this routine is feasible to do on a daily basis, I believe I can sustain these habits for a long time. I’m also happy to report I have also significantly decreased my alcohol intake. I used to be a social drinker, once a week typically on weekends to now only on a rare occasion and even then the desire to have a drink is no longer.
