So I’m one week in with this whole trying to get healthier thing.
And … so far, so good.
I’ve had so many people in the past tell me about this diet or that diet; or the sure ways to lose weight, be it no carbs, or something else. The one thing they all seem to have in common? The weight usually comes back and they’ll often tell you that it will.
What’s the point?
If the weight comes off and then comes back on, how does it help?
The reality is this: I’ve always said I know how to get healthier and in better shape — eat better and get more exercise. I never believed it was healthy to lose a lot of weight in a quick amount of hurry.
So, here’s an update a week-plus into this whole new thing.
- Not sure about weight as I forgot to weigh myself this morning. I am doing it only weekly.
- I feel better as I’ve gotten out more and mixed things up. I’ve walked, hiked, and gone for a bike ride.
- Stamina is up.
- I’m eating better and feel like I am getting full on less, which is good.
- My blood numbers, pretty much across the board, are down.
Let’s talk about that last part quickly. The biggest point to all of this is to get my numbers down. As a diabetic, I need to make sure I’m not all out of whack as I want to control things.
So, when I started I was in range most of the time, though on the higher side. My mornings were high (and still are out of range, but are lower), and now when I check at other points in the day, things are much better. Even after eating. I’ve been keeping a notebook of everything and that’s helped me look at things better. Even a couple hours after meals, things are way more in line to where they are supposed to be. Now I just need to figure out the overnight thing as it’s usually pretty good when I check before bed.
Overall, though, things are going better and that’s a good thing. I have a few things I’m doing to push myself and keep on the right line, and I’ll blog about those down the line. Hopefully, things can keep on going well! Here’s to a healthier lifestyle!
