That's how you make changes. One little step at a time. It's the same principal for how I've been dealing with my bf's deployment- each day is one day closer to seeing him as opposed to one more day without him.
I want to make a change in my life. I want to lose weight. I like being a big girl- a girl without curves is like jeans without pockets, you don't know where to put your hands. But I want to be healthy. I want to be a healthy weight, or at the very least be healthier. My blood pressure is a bit hard to control. I only recently got it down but I'm afraid it will go back up. I changed birth control and my new pill might make it go back up. So I need to work to keep it down. So losing weight and being healthier is one way.
I've decided to focus more on the physical aspect first. I don't make quite enough money to buy healthy, fresh food frequently (ALLITERATION!). So I'll start with counting calories so that I don't eat more than I need. I'm going to aim for 1,800 a day and limit sodium intake.
Next, I want to be active in some way for at least ten minutes a day for the next two weeks. I think that's a good start- Mondays and Wednesdays are already covered (swing dancing). :)
These are my baby steps. I'll report in tomorrow and we shall see what becomes of it. My bf said that if I can get to a 12 minute mile (I suck at running) before he gets back that we'll go on a cruise. I'm gonna argue for Disney Land for when we go on our little road trip. Anyways, I gotta work up to it!
