Yeah... not so good at the blogging, am I.
Also, not so good at the sticking with a plan, or eating well, or following through, or being consistent.
Aha. Well I got a new job. And the new job comes with some kick-ass benefits. One of the benefits is a nice little bribe. If I get a physical, the company puts $1000 in an account for me to spend on my health. Now that, my friends is a darn good benefit. So, I went to my doctor, she filled out the form, she sent me to the lab to get blood drawn. Fasting test. okay. No problem.
Yeah. BIG PROBLEM.
I AM NOW PRE-DIABETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Uhm. Not gonna happen. I have more than enough auto-immune disorders, that you very much. Exercise is the cure, apparently.
And gardening for 2 hours every day doesn't seem to matter.... it's not cardio enough.
My kick-ass benefits will give me a discount on a gym membership, and because I now have a prescription for a gym membership, I can use my $1000 to pay the dues. What's my excuse now?
I don't have one. I work 10 minutes from home. I have a desperately supportive (yet not pushy) husband. I make a fine living. My friends are super healthy.
Regularity. Ahhh! I will start a spark streak. Blog here every day. EVERY. DAY. until it's a habit again. Not a bad place to start.
