Post Bob

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Well it's been a while and as usual I fell back into old habits and ways of living. Eat too much, eat wrong types and times, and am pretty sedentary. I know all to well the fruit of my labor is extra weight, fatigue, and general all around having a poor attitude. Then Bob......

Turns out a family member, who has far exceeded my meager attempts of unhealthy lifestyle choices, has been in the hospital of late. Seeing him on the bed in the critical care unit unable to breathe because of fluid built up around his lungs and heart was an eye opener. Not to mention, but I am, seeing how diabetes has ravaged his feta, I am very motivated to make some lifestyle changes now!

So this is my time line moving forward, Post Bob (PB).

I have just secured a fishing kayak so I get a lot more exercise now when fishing.
I have got up and started working more in the yard, that's hear stuff at this point.
I am back to tracking food intake, and making better choices.
I continue to track all my steps taken in a day.

So here I go......weeeeee

    Woke up well today, I think I have my meds dialed in better:) almost a 1000 steps in before 0830! All in all feeling good. Now the difficult task of staying focused throughout the day lies ahead.

    Well done about 3.? Lbs this past week. Went out on the kayak twice, did lots of yard work, and was pretty good with calorie intake.

    Sounds like a scary wake-up call. I will say prayers for Bob and wish you the best of luck.
