There's a great pin that does the rounds quite a lot on pinterest, talking about the 'more' and 'less' of getting healthy. More veggies, less sugar.....more sleep, less worry....you get the picture? The one that really stuck with me was the "more action, less words" - as happy as I am that I've started this change, I think gearing up for a long weekly post is me trying to spend more time thinking about getting healthy....and less time actually getting healthy! It was ever thus. I do like the accountability factor of a weigh-in though, so I'll be updating fortnightly with progress and details of high points and low points, as well as any pertinent pictures!
High points of this week:
Finally I can hear again! I took myself back to the docs and a second course of meds is working wonders.
I have been much better with portion control when eating at home.
My water consumption is pretty much perfect.
Yesterday, after lots of faffing and a healthy whack of fear, I actually made it to the gym! I picked up my card and did a very fun hour-long dance class. By the end I was shattered and beet red, but happy to have completed the class!
Low points of this week:
Eating out is an issue, so I want to make wiser choices. It's hard not to have burgers or cakes when others are indulging. I'm going to try to be better with my planning so I can have an occasional meal of without feeling guilty.
