Time to Get Back to the Basics!

Saturday, October 27, 2012

I recently got all my physical exams completed and found out all is not good. One that I already knew, my weight. I am officially obese until I drop to 179 pounds. My cholesterol is too high too (237) I am learning how I need to eat to lower that, as well as my weight. Well, at least my exercise is plentiful. I hope to be 165 pounds by April. I would like to see 135 pounds again by the end of next year. I have not gone scuba diving in over 2 years since I have been too big for my dry suit. I want to dive again next year!

I have a new project in the works. I will be writing a book detailing my husband's and my adventures, complete with my photos. I hope to have it finished by September next year.

I have been active much of my adult life and find the challenges of staying that way are increasing as I get older. When I am not scuba diving I love bicycling either with my husband or alone. We love hiking together at state parks too! I pair that with my passion for photography, which I pursue when not at work. I plan on buying a new camera , a Canon SX40HS. I will be able to take my photography to new heights!

Getting back on the Spark Train to great health!

    So many of us have those problems with weight, cholesterol, triglycerides etc. A lot of never know it until it's too late. We need to make a point of having our blood etc checked at least once a year. It doesn't take that long to get it done; it's just a matter of doing it. Thanks for the reminder.
