reintroducing myself and setting goals for april
Saturday, April 12, 2014
A little about myself I work seven very early mornings a week delivering newspapers, been diagnosed with degenerative disc in my lower back and neck about 2 years ago, and OA in both knees about 6 months ago. I have also been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 17 ½ years ago.
The doctor is encouraging me to lose weight but I am not to do to much weight baring exercises.
I live in Northern CA with my husband which I will refer to as Bud, right now he is being supportive but not always. I have 5 adult children, 4 teenagers not living with us. That is counting my step sons. We have 3 dogs Baby Girl is a tarrier mix, Shaggy and Cookie are both chihuahuas they are all around 5 years old. We have 5 grandchildren 2 which we may never see since the father got custody of them and they live out of state. 3 is my oldest daughters which also lives out of state but I get to talk to them all the time if I want to.
1st My goals for this month is to start walking I started off with the goal of 2000 steps per day and I want to add 1000 steps to that goal every week. So far I been able to accomplish the 2000 steps the first week of the goal sitting. So I will be upping that goal to 3000 this Sunday so I will have a new goal to accomplish this next week each day.
One way I will be working on this goal is walking a trailer park that I deliver papers in which usually takes care of the 2000 steps and I am still stepping through out the rest of the day on top of this goal. I bought a pedometer to keep track of my steps.
2nd to measure and keep track of the foods I intake to get better control of the health issues I have, and lose weight.
They are the 2 goals I am working on for the month of April.
