Month 1 - Learning.... and weigh in

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

So, much has happened this month that I have a hard time knowing where to begin. I didn't even remember that this was the last weigh in for the month, until I saw another member's post. I have lost 8 pounds and learned so much. Already, I am seeing my blood pressure slowly and steadily dropping. I can't tell you how happy that makes me and how relieved. It's been worrying me that my blood pressure has been elevated even with meds.

I have learned through the articles on SP that I am prediabetic. I now eat 5 meals/ day instead of the 2 meals I was eating. It seems strange to be losing weight and eating more food than I ever did before. But, the food I was eating before was calorie dense and nutrient poor. I thought I would have to wait several months before seeing noticeable change in energy. But already I have managed to annoy my dh with my bounciness. emoticon

I still have so much to do and accomplish.
Goal 1 is to continue to reduce my caffeine intake. I really dislike HAVING to drink a cup of coffee to prevent headaches. That's going, ASAP!!!!
Goal 2 - To increase my sleep from 6 hours to 7-7.5.
Goal 3 - To increase my exercise form 3 days to 4 days/week.
