I ended up at the after hours clinic last Sunday because of an eye irritation. My suspicions were confirmed...pink eye. Luckily it was just me and not the girls. I also found out that my blood pressure was pretty high again and my weight has crept up.
So I decided to try for some baby step changes this week:
NO candy - this is the worst at work. Everyone has candy on their desk and it is always within reach.
NO eating out for lunch - bring lunch and snacks
Walk the stairs or around the block at least once a day at work.
So far this week - I have done the first 2 without fail. I am really proud of the no candy - and I am losing my cravings for it, even after just 3 days.
But I have not gotten in any exercise! It is just hard to get myself up and out. I need to find a couple of walking partners at work to come by and drag me from my desk.
My big goal is to get healthy and active. I don't want to get fixated on numbers but I would like to lose 30-50 lbs this year. I want to find time for a variety of exercise. I also know I will need that time for myself and to help clear the cobwebs!
