Well, I've made it through Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and all the baking in between with no weight gain. Just a few days to go! The solution for me to accomplish that was ATTENTION. Just staying aware of what/when/why I'm eating and spending a lot of effort to stay focused and aware.
I woke up today thinking about starting a new healthy year. I'm a little early, but it's on my mind. Last year I focused on nutrition until I found a healthy way to eat that brought all my "numbers" into really desireable, healthy ranges. My blood work verified I was on the right track.
This new year I'll be zeroing in on improving/not losing bone density. This is a challenge for me since the common most load bearing exercises result in pain for me due to a bad hip when done in any consistent, effective manner.
So I'll be searching for no or very low impact exercises that are still effective for building bone density. After an entire life of more physical activity (read that "hard labor") than your average woman, I never thought this would be an issue for me. But here I am. Not critical, but slipping some in bone density, and determined to correct that.
If you have a favorite dvd, exercise or any thoughts at all on this, feel free to pass them my way!
