Regarding finding balance healthwise-I am eating less, trying to stop when I am full. Since I cannot use my treadmill here yet (that room is being used for storage right now), and since I do not want to go to a fitness center or walk along our road, I plan on using my sibling's recumbent bike and strength training equipment when I stay at their home twice weekly to watch dad while they are out of town. I did use it for about 10 minutes while over there earlier this week, but need to adjust it to my height:)
Progress on my other goals:
1. Ascertain the last date of labwork, bone scan, physical; take online health assessment (all regular screening done, 2004 + 2005; health assessment done).
2. Increase my steps to a minimum of 2,500 a day (see I told you my steps/day were BAD). If I remember correctly 2,000 steps=1 mile, but I will check on that. I'd like to see it at 5,000 steps but I can always work up to that and I don't want to set myself up for failure...baby steps, baby steps:) Research online programs for both weight loss and fitness through our health insurance (have not been tracking my steps since posting but will start that again soon. Have been researching online programs).
3. Increase the amount of vegetables and fruit I eat. Decrease the amount of sugar I am eating. Possibly eat more frequent, smaller meals as I have a problem with hypoglycemia and tend to go for the high carb foods when I feel hypoglycemic. Watch portion size (not much change in amount of veggies and fruit yet but have cut down on refined sugar and portion size. Need to increase consumption of water--as always).
4. Resist the urge to procrastinate. Be consistent! (trying).
Be blessed, Aimee
Photo: Oh does this room look different now---it will definitely be a major project for me to turn it into a craft/fitness room. Baby steps, baby steps...
