Confession and Plan

I went to the doctor and the numbers don't lie (even if I pretended the mirror was). I knew that my body needed attention. I'm tired all the time. I can feel my veins pulse when my blood pressure is too high, my heart will beat too hard, I snore, my clothes don't fit the way I would like, my arm goes numb when I sleep, and on and on. These are really big warning signs. I'm only 44. How did this happen? Excuses and no personal accountability.

Confession:
  1. Weight highest it's been since pregnancy
  2. Cholesterol iffy even on meds
  3. Blood Pressure iffy even on meds
  4. Prediabetic because of all of the above 
  5. Reason for the above is simple: I eat too much and don't exercise enough.

Plan:
  1. Confess publicly so that I can have friend support. (Don't be offended if I turn down foods or drinks. Do call me for a walk, an activity, or to play with art instead of lunch or drinks.)
  2. Daily walks
  3. Add weight training
  4. Track eating and modify diet for diabetic friendly eating.
  5. Celebrate milestones and keep going till I reach my goal of better labs and a healthier body.
