It’s been 21 days since I began to once again make lifestyle changes to improve my health, and though the progress is slow….I am pleased. Of those days, there have only been three that I did not exercise at all. I have lost a few pounds, though I wish it was more…at least we are going in the right direction. Clothes are fitting just a little better!
I am walking for my daily exercise. Since I began teaching summer school, I have started to walk for twenty minutes in the mornings when it is cool. On the weekends, I do a 45 minute walk. I’m also doing some light weight work for my arms.
I am really, really attempting to watch the carbs I eat. Unfortunately, everything I love involves carbs….but if I fall of the wagon, I just get up and get right back on again. Even when I cheat, it is not really severe cheating like eating a half gallon of ice cream or a pan of macaroni and cheese! Although the ice cream idea has entered my head!
I do feel much, much better. When I began, I was exhausted and my bones just ached. I was very concerned about the overall aching of my joints and bones. But, since beginning the regular exercise and better eating habits, the pains have really gone away! So, my advice to anyone with the same aches?? GET MOVING!!! The more we move the better!!
