A new day, a new year, a new decade

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Ok - so, it's not really a new decade for everyone. But, for me it is! I turned 30 in November and feel like this change in decade signals a new start for me. I keep teasing myself by saying "Well, now that you're 30 you're an actual grown-up!" So, I feel like its time to get responsible for my health.

And that's not all. In a year and a half, I will graduate with my doctorate of pharmacy. By that time, I want to be healthier, stronger, and happier. An overweight healthcare professional is kind of a joke. How am I supposed to counsel someone on their weight if I'm obese myself?! Not only that, but I'm educated enough to know the benefits of diet and exercise and the risk of obesity presents to my overall health. I think this is my strongest reason to get better.

So, what am I going to do about it?
1) drink more water
2) track my food on SPARK
2) explore the DASH diet and pick a nutrition plan
3) rejoin jazzercise - which I love and miss

Wish me luck -

    Good luck!! I came across your page on the Jazzercise Team page! I love Jazzercise and am also a pharmacy student. I'm on rotations now as I'm a P4 and it's amazing! I'm in Omaha, NE at UNMC....where are you?! I used to be quite active on SP and got out of the habit when I got pregnant my P3 year. My son is now 4 months old and I'm turning 35 in a few's time to get back on track (flexes muscles in excitment)!! haha
