On A Mission!
Yes, I'm on a mission......a healthy eating and exercising plan. I've been watching what I eat for some time now since I had a scare with my blood sugar going up, so to avoid the dreaded "diabetes", I got serious about cutting the sugar way down and watching what I eat and cook. I began last August so it's almost a year now with just 10 pounds lost and they were lost in the first 2 months! Since then my weight has been STUCK in neutral.....not going up, but more importantly to me, not going down either. The 5 pounds I put on the ticker I've finally dropped just this week, which is a good indication that maybe consistent weight loss is in my future?
On that note, I've decided to take my Mom's advice (because she's always right anyhow, and that's the truth) and I've started walking on my treadmill every day for at least a mile or more. This should jar some of this flab loose one way or the other, shouldn't it? Say yes, please!!! :) Once autumn rolls around, I can get outside and walk but the temperature here is just too hot and humid for outdoor walking. I do feel better and have more energy throughout the day and this, in just 2 weeks.
I hope that those of you who can commiserate will let me know of any tips you might have to improve either the exercising or the food part of this "now" way of life for me. I would love to hear from any and all with advice or just plain comments. Ahh, come on now, I'm counting on you! :))
On that note, I'll leave you with one of my favorite, most appropriate quotes, although I don't know who said it originally,
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".
