I have been pretty much AWOL for some time with only sporadic posts. I just didn't think I had the time to be on, which is partially true, and I thought I could handle life on my own, which was very untrue. Discipline is not something I like. I have made some good changes over the years I have been here. I am drinking more water on a regular basis and am excercising which was non-existant before coming here. I am proud of both of these because I know it is good that I have. My job has gotten in the way of things in a major way this year with upheaval and more hours. That threw my exercise off and up went my blood pressure as a result. My goal is to get back to regularly exercising four days a week and if things go really, really well maybe adding the fifth day. I have not been eating my veggies as well as I had been. Okay, I'll be honest, I haven't been eating them at all. I hope to get back to making that a priority because I know that ,too, will bring down the blood pressure and in the end make me much healthier. I also slacked off on getting my calcium quota for the day, which my doctor noticed as well. And following suit with everything else, my weight has skyrocketed, something that was unexpected. I don't know why it was unexpected, but it was. So in order to keep that in check, I must track my intake. I know this works because it has brought me results every time, where not tracking has always brought me trouble. I have really missed my visits with the friends I have made here. You have been so faithful and I appreciate that. I just hope I can cheer you on like you have me. So I truly hope you will be seeing more of me. Keep me accountable someone, please. Thanks for not juging me and standing beside me. We truly are in this together.
