First time

Wednesday, March 06, 2019

I have been watching what I have been eating for the last month. It started out as heart palpations to me having high blood pressure. It was high for about a week. My first time ever feeling it. My provider told me to try the DASH diet, so I reviewed it and figured it was just mostly watching your sodium intake. I already knew about sparks people, but only the exercising part. I figured it would be a good thing to start taking my daily eating habits and to be brutally honest in doing so. So here I go. Wish me luck.

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water
