This is my very first post in my new blog. Previously I had a blog called NJmum.blogspot.com and it did well, but now I want to write more and created this blog.
I need to get fit and healthy. I wanted to write about diet and exercise and blog my diary but didn't want to limit myself on just diet and exercise. After all my end goal is being healthy not weight loss alone. So my initial posts may include diet alterations, exercise improvements, shopping tips, fitness tips and more.
I need to tell you my background and statistics. I have high cholesterol, I always have, and my diet doesn't help (chocolate anyone?) but some improvements I have made have done WONDERS for my cholesterol and it won't be a surprise which ones. I am clinically obese, wow being obese is so easy ie the level for obesity is SO low (or does it just seem so to me?) anyway I am not just overweight but yes, ahem, obese. I have high bloodsugars, at the prediabetic level. Yep let it get so out of hand that I joined the scary ranks of those that are waiting for diabetes. That scares me a LOT, diabetes is no joke, my uncle had it and it was horrible, I will tell you about that later on. I've checked my thyroid umpteen times and it working like clockwork. My hormones could use a little work but it is what it is as I am in the peri-menopause stage (when did I get middle aged?).
I recently made some changes, actually it has been years of changes all contributing to this point and I will explain the background changes in another post (so much to write). I started exercising well actually getting steps in, and will tell you how I did it with snow and ice outside yet managed to get 10,000 steps everyday. My cousin took a photo of me and I was horrified at the picture, I hate taking photos of me, as anyone in denial does. I denied my image and can't see obesity when I look in the mirror (Katie Hopkins, it is true). Perhaps it has been that changes have crept up gradually but I do see some weight that needs to come off my middle but I don't seem horrendously fat as I would have thought at my weight.
I will also make diet changes but will do those in the future as first I want to commit to my 10K steps to get the ball rolling. Rome wasn't built in a day.
I will tell you all the shortcuts that work for me. Lets do this folks. Join me.
