I have added my goals here on Spark People and have been accomplishing some of them - well, some of the time. But, need to make them more visible each day. Am thinking about a chart for the front of the fridge. Except that if I put one there, my son will make sure that I reach my goals each day.
Recently, we made a trip to the We Care Clinic for him. He was having severe migraines and his blood pressure was slightly elevated. So he has been researching and has become more interested in our diet. We order from Schwans and love their meats. Not much to chose from here in Pendleton. We were so spoiled in Medford with a small Quality Market - that has the best meat on the West Coast. Well, we think so!! Geoff and I do not eat much meat, so one of their individual servings is just right for the two of us - with a couple of veggies and a salad.
So, am eating much better. And, my daughter is doing a semi-Weight Watchers and has lost 15 pounds. I did it for a couple of weeks and lost about 6 pounds. (have gained back a couple) - so want to get started counting points again. This diet goes very well with what Geoff and I have been eating this past week.
And, am gradually increasing my daily steps. Walked a mile with Leslie this morning and have about 1500 on my pedometer - am at work so the steps are going down the hall to answer the doorbell - and a couple of trips to the bathroom (on the other side of the sanctuary). I skip the one in the nursery so I can add a few more steps.
I just feel so encouraged on this website!! Love reading how others handled discouragement and setbacks just like I experience. And, am so motivated by the success stories - each day another step!!
