Azure WEC - What is going right/wrong at this point in my journey
Saturday, November 15, 2014
A lot is going right at this point.
1. My blood sugar is stabilized and I consistently get good readings. I am in the process of cutting back on meds, with my doctor's approval.
2. My blood pressure is regularly in the 110/70 range. This was the main reason I found SP. I had dangerously high BP, even on meds. My doctor has me just about off the BP medicine. I have been weaning this down and have just 4 pills left until I am done.
3. I am sleeping great. This was a huge problem for me up until this year. I did the 28 day sleep challenge on SP and that, along with everything else that has happened, has changed my sleep patterns. I now regularly get 6-8 hours of sleep, with only a very few rough nights - like maybe once a month.
4, I am happier, and feel confident that I can maintain this lifestyle and my better health. I was a yoyo dieter most of my life, losing and gaining as much as 60 pounds more than a couple of times. I really believe that I can continue what I am doing now.
5. I have found the exercise routine that works for me and I enjoy it. I have been upping it as I can and adding to it, but I'm loving the variety and the results I am getting. This includes 2 gym classes where I have met some wonderful friends.
6, I have kicked my sweet tooth to the curb - MAJOR!
I think the biggest area I need to work on is keeping to my now normal habits while traveling. I have a big test of that coming up in just 11 days. Fortunately my husband is also doing SP and we both have the desire to maintain or lose while away from home. We have a plan in place of how we will eat and exercise.
