What a busy summer. This summer was hard on my waistline. The meds they had me on upped my weight, with the kids home I didn't get my workouts in as much, but now it's time to get serious again. I do this every year. I'm tired of the up and down. I've started my new job as an EMT and I need to be healthy as much as I can. While working the food situation isn't so good - you don't get much time to eat and when you do it's usually something quick and unhealthy. I've started taking my lunch but I don't always get to eat it. It has to be something that isn't refrigerated and can be kept in my backpack. Usually food comes from the hospital cafeteria. Drop off a patient, run to the cafeteria for a energy drink and a bag of chips and go to the next call. I've got to get stricter on myself at home and make up for the unhealthy shifts. At least I'm active at work. LOL. Not much down time. I got to stop making excuses and take care of this problem. I'm not going to be a patient going in with a heart attack at 40 years old!!! I got to fix this now!!! Enough is enough!!!
