Sunday, April 5, 2009 - Scared

Sunday, April 05, 2009

Today is Sunday, April 5, 2009 and it has been over a year since I've blogged. I don't know what's going on but in the past 2 weeks I've gone totally out of control. I don't exercise, I'm not eating right and the more I try to change this the worse I'm becoming. I've gained 3 pounds in the last week and that really makes me angry as it is so hard to lose the weight. Our dog loves to go for walks and I don't' take her and she is going stark crazy from no exercise. Every morning I tell myself "today you're going to start exercising and making healthier food choices - you know you're diabetic and your not hurting anyone but yourself by NOT doing what is necessary. You've seen both your parents die of heart disease and diabetes complications, your brother is diabetic, has had open heart surgery, lasik eye surgery, and neuropathy in one of his feet. What is it going to take to get your attention and start taking better care of yourself?"

I am the queen of procrastination - that is my biggest problem, everything is put off until tomorrow and tomorrow never comes for me.

Well I guess that my pity party has gone on long enough - now all I need to do is practice what I preach - JUST SHUT UP AND DO IT!!!!!

    I know this is an old blog, but I just found it! Admitting fear is hard but a very liberating thing to do. First thing you find out is that everyone else is scared, too, lol. I certainly was when I went public with my carb addiction and my 3 day promise to try to control it. But I got so much support here from so many people, it was just awesome! You can do it!

    So happy to see you post on Over 60's. Take a look at some of our older threads, like What are you reading? and ways to improve your diet, etc. etc.

    Welcome Back!

    You have taken the first step. Now you can take another. You know you can do it. I too find it difficult to exercise. Just taking 5 minutes to exercise is something I can do. How about you?

    Sometimes I need some direction, the SparkPeople 7 Day 10-Minute Bootcamp is helpful and gives me some variety. Do a search and you will the videos.

    I know you can do it. :-)

    Take it one step at a time. Take the dog for a 10 minute walk and then work up to 20 minutes and so on. Start replacing the foods you now eat with fruits and veggies one at a time. Drink one more glass of water each day. Do exercise while waiting for the microwave to finish or a load of clothes to finish. Just Do It! It takes a while to make something a habit so concentrate on one thing at a time. Good Luck! We are here and rooting for you!

    Okay, forget about you. Do it for the precious dog! He deserves better so make yourself be a good mommie and walk the dog! Just maybe you will also enjoy the walk!
