Dr Appt and no motivation

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

This is the first time I have logged into SP in about a week. I knew I was eating horribly and did not want to see the results here. I also knew I had a Dr appt coming up this morning and I was letting go before I knew I was going to have to buckle down.

Let me explain.

I was diagnosed with high blood pressure when I was going for a should scope back in August. I put off seeing my regular doctor this long, because I do not want to face this truth. I finally did it and my blood pressure went from 140/105 in the hospital to 160/110 today at my appointment. I start meds today for that. Get checked in a couple of weeks to see how it is working.

I am having a much harder time than I thought to even start sincerely changing. My only effort thus far has been to track my food. The worst part is if I am having a bad day I choose to not track it at all, which is only kidding myself. I see there are great resources available out here, but I have 0 motivation to actually do any of them. I am going to have to force myself to change at this point, because I have no want to do it.

    Getting out there and doing the social networking part definitely helps - then you might have some extra motivation to get out there and get it done!!

    I love the food tracker because then I know what I've been doing well on and what I need to work on - I know now I was a carb addict and didn't eat enough protein, but now I have that balance down, or at least a lot better!

    I don't know how you've been doing with exercise, but what I do is a) just go do it without really trying to come up with excuses, and b) only worry about my exercise for the next day. That way I'm not trying to plan out my schedule days ahead of time and then not being open to schedule changes.

    Good luck - you can get healthy again!
