Baby Steps

My wonderful husband turned 50 and had a heart attack. He's in great shape, eats right and exercises... me, not so much. I got him through the healing process and decided I needed to get serious about getting fit and losing all the weight that's crept up.

I'm tossing the prepackaged, premade food.. reading packages and concentrating on fibre and balance. I'm walking and when I lose my weight, I'm gifting myself with lessons to fly a glider.. something I've always wanted to do. ...

Update 2 years later. My goals and purpose are the same. I got off track due to illness but didn't realize I was ill. It turned out to be diabetes and I was diagnosed 2 months ago (April 2012). I'm totally back on track and excited about my future.

I've lost 19 lbs since my diagnosis and I've gotten serious about excercise and I'm loving it. I'll be gliding before the end of this summer!

Become confident in being able to adjust my insulin intake

My Program:
Tracked food intake for 2 weeks and found out that cheese, chocolate and too much bread were the major problems in my diet and I wasn't getting anywhere near 25 gms of fiber so I tossed the cheese and chocolate and most of the prepackaged food in the house and now I make a point of having enough fiber in the form of cereal, fruit and veggies.

It's easy to be happy when surrounded by love so I'm almost always blissful.

Don't know if you are still around... but I liked your last blog about reducing your insulin. I am getting sugar lows which is new to me. New body and new food rules. It's a work in progress for sure. I'm off to an all inclusive next week which only worries me a bit. I plan to journal and try and keep on track. Hope you are good too! Justyna

Thank you so much for the Sparkgoodie. So tasty and refreshing. It was just what the doctor ordered after returning from my 1 hour, 5 minute, 49 second, 4.24 mile walk. But, whose counting anyway? Oh, yeah, WE ARE! We both have it figured out! Thank you, Sparkpeople! I've got the workout gear, too. It's almost humorous how my life has so changed. The only reason I was so precise above with my walking numbers is because of the free app, Runkeeper. It's phenomenal. If you have a smartphone, you gotta try it.

Have a great day. And, as always, Spark On!
