Life's challenges have taken a toll on my family and my personal health. Between the barrage of work-related projects with rapid-fire deadlines and a family illness, my otherwise healthy choices have taken a beating. I didn't think that would happen during the summer months because outdoor exercise is more attractive.
Last summer, I went through the similar work-related projects and deadlines and swore not to let that get into the way of my progress! But it was even worse this year.
I am resolved to get back on track. The pedometer?? It's now attached to my waistband again. The gym? We've just been re-introduced. My feet? They're ready to get to walking again for more than 10 minutes at a time. In fact, jogging a lap or 2 around the track is absolutely possible.
Throwing a wrench into the whole equation was when my Dr said, hey, because of your age, I want you to get a Mammogram screening. And when I did, wanted a follow-up done. Thankfully, nothing's wrong...but they are keeping an eye on it anyway.
2 months to my next Dr's appt...I'm gonna bring down the glucose...maybe even lose a pant and shirt size in the process.
