Got to get motivated....


Thursday, July 18, 2013

I haven't even logged in for over a year. I'm so tired of my weight, and am so self-conscious about the way I look. This spring I was told that my blood sugars were high, and I've been monitoring my fasting blood sugars.

I have been supposed to be exercising for half an hour a day, and I havn't been doing it, and don't want to go back see the doctor for that reason.

I don't want to have diabetes, but have a strong family history of the disease. I know I need to get past my mental block about exercising, and just start doing it.

    I think 30 minutes of exercise a day is a lot to jump into. This past winter, I started with 10 minutes in January, 15 in Feb, and 20 in March and April. Now that summer is finally here, I have bee trying to get in at least 20 minutes by walking around a 2-block route that is roughly a half mile. Each time around takes me about 10 minutes.

It's just a small start, but it is a start and I've got a 200 day streak of at least 10 minutes of exercise going. Ten minutes a day is a fairly easy goal and it's much better than sitting here surfing and blogging...

Start with baby steps -- Just track your food for a while, then try to make one healthier choice a day. Also try to incorporate more exercise into your daily life. Park farther away from your destination and walk further to the door. Try just 5 minutes of walking even just to the corner and back. Take the stairs. Little things can add up.

I know the feeling of wanting to avoid the doctor, but that really doesn't solve anything and can, in fact, make it worse.

And drink your water, it really does help.

    It's up to you. If you don't change your eating and exercise habits, your weight will not reduce. It's not enough just to want to be thin/healthy. If it were, I would be sooo skinny!
