Time to Get Serious


Friday, June 07, 2013

2013 so far has been really rough for me in terms of health. I got wrecked by pneumonia and seemingly endless colds, etc.

In May I did an anti-allergen diet, which overall was very healthy but left me way too excited about everything I had eliminated, especially sugar and caffeine.

I recently started up again but so far I've been kind of flighty about it, which means I spend time feeling like I'm messing up, instead of feeling happy and healthy since I'm tracking and doing what need to be done.

Plans (not goals - plans, because I need to make it happen!)

* At least 10 minutes of exercise every day.
- Stroller walks both weekend days.
- Wake up early to sneak in strength and cardio if possible.
- Walk at lunch, even if it's brief (usually I get started and don't want to stop).

* Track food.
- High-fiber breakfast (going to try cutting out eggs).
- Need to cut down on the fat - I've been enjoying lots of grilled veggies but I think there's too much fat, which could be affecting the cholesterol level.
- Go to farmer's market and get fruits and veggies (and avoid the fudge and kettle corn).

* Take care of my asthma.
- Inhaler thing twice a day
- Track it!

  Good plans! Those seem really concrete! My favorite high-fiber breakfast is plain bran flakes, puffed rice (high volume, low cal) and berries. If I get a bite of berry with every spoonful, it's just sweet enough for me.

Also, the NYTimes 7-minute workout is tough but rewarding: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/

I think it's just hard enough that if you really do it that quickly, you are tired but happy. And then you've done almost all 10 fitness minutes that day!

Have a great weekend! I'll try to virtually stoller walk with you!
