It's been a week since I started implementing healthy habits in small steps. I didn't build up to as many healthy things by the end of the week as I would like to have but I still did ok. Today was the first day I truly feel good in a month. The sun is shining and I'm off work today, so it is a great day to really work hard. I have already worked out and feel so much energy afterwords! I have been counting my calories and drinking lots of water so far today too.
Today was also the first day I weighed in a month. Gained 2 lbs. That was pretty motivating to see. Seeing how my bad choices affect me on the scales really made me realize I need to do better.
I really have been wanting to get healthier not just to lose weight but because I am now in my 40's and I am starting to worry about things like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes. Although I've been overweight for many years, I have always had healthy reports from doctor. I've been blessed not to have diabetes or high blood pressure/cholesterol. But I know if I continue my poor health choices they will catch up with me. Tomorrow is my annual physical. I was hoping to go in there showing my doctor I have been making some changes but my setbacks this month won't give me any bragging rights. I hope I still get good results and get another chance to get healthy. I really don't want to have to be put on any medications.
