ugh. friday afternoon i found out my blood pressure is elevated- yeah, i am sure it is partially because i have anxiety and have had a shitty year and genetics are against me,
but really, and this is extremely painful for me to admit, my blood pressure is elevated in part because i am too fat.
so once again, i make a commitment to taking better care of myself by eating less and more healthfully- with the result of that being the weight will FALL off (or just come off slowly- doesn’t really matter how fast right?) i’ve been going to a nutritionist for a few weeks to analyze and improve what i eat. (she weighs me and tells me that i’m “heading in the right direction”) and i write down my food each day (was thinking about putting my food log on the blog but wasn’t sure anyone wants to see that…do you? I will share when I find things like best vitamins for weight loss though.)
and i’ve been exercising for the past couple of months and will continue to move more.
that’s it. that’s what i HAVE to do.
maybe by talking about it on the blog, i will hold myself more accountable. so as to not disappoint myself, nor you.
and no, i am not doing this for anyone other than me.
so far so good. weekends are usually hard for me to stay on track, but i have managed to. and i am avoiding all sweets other than an occassional skinny cow cone (a dieter’s dream at 150 cal) until my birthday (feb. 7th- only one cheat day!) when alexis and johnny iuzzini (dessert fourplay) have their big bake off.
wish me luck. (or don’t!)
and feel free to start your healthful living along with me…
