Hard to believe it’s September, isn’t it? Where in the world did the summer disappear to? Since seeing my doctor last week, I’ve decided to rededicate myself to living a little healthier. You know the drill, eat better, move more, go to sleep earlier, reduce stress. We all know that’s how to be healthier, but it’s easier to talk about it than it is to actually do it.
Anyhow, when I saw my doctor, we talked about my pain and sleep issues. Of course, my weight has to have some impact on everything. I promised her I’d work on eating better and exercising more. She’s very understanding about how difficult it is to exercise vigorously when I’m in so much pain. She did suggest several forms of exercise that are a little gentler on my joints, so now I really have no excuse.
I started the month off with my calorie intake at the low-end of the range and 35 minutes of walking. And of course, I visited SparkPeople.com to log everything. Now to get some sleep…
Do you guys try to lose weight before the holidays so you can splurge a little at all of those holiday shindigs? I’ve done that in years gone by, not sure how well it worked for me though. I think this year I’m just going to try to eat healthy most of the time and have a little something extra maybe once a week…so Donna, maybe you shouldn’t bring your delicious peanut butter cookies to work…
