Making progress!

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I've lost another pound since I last weighed. Down to 205.6 now. Definitely making progress! I can't attribute that to simply water loss, as I've never been one to hold more than 3-4 pounds of water and I have lost 7 pounds. My next big health goal is to start reducing my sodium intake. I easily get 3500-4000 mg a DAY...which is excessive. My family history is positive for high blood pressure, and my blood pressure already sits at 130/80 at 25. I've been doing great with not drinking any soda/juice, and drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day. My skin looks a bit better (I had wished it would clear my acne, but also knew it wouldn't really). Its time to add another healthy habit.

On a different note, I start my school take-over today. Part of my internship in school psychology is taking over a school completely, without the constant guidance of my intern supervisor. I'm nervous that I won't know what to do, but I'm also sure I'll figure it out. I know I'll come out of that school in 3 months knowing so much more about how to be an effective psychologist, I've just got to power through it. Time to get to work, I guess!

my sister lost 105 pounds at age 63 by walking 15000 steps a day.

i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain products and sugary products at age 60.

i use a salad plate as a dinner plate; i eat with a childs fork. takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full. it works.
