January 1 and starting new year at 206.5 so although I have been up and down I can only officially claim a year's loss of 1.5 pounds - disappointed but not discouraged because I feel I am healthier on the inside
Plan for new year is pretty much the same as the past
***Emphasis on liquids [5x8 ounces with meds and 4 pints of water or tea.coffee/non caloric beverages] and getting in low glycemic fruits and veggies
***Goal of ONEderland __Be healthier, happy, lose weight & maintain/improve mobility and balance
***Diet is a way of living : Eat to live!!! Food is fuel - not entertainment or reward.
General umbrella of Trim Healthy Mama with JUDDD with LOW Saturated fats ***Gluten free for celiac, ***Heart healthy and anti-inflammatory, ***LowCARB for Dx of pre-diabetic
***GOAL: maintain fasting blood sugars under 100 I need dietary carbs max to 40 Total CARBS and aim for 20 per day.
***MOBILITY efforts are for neuropathy and arthritis that are advancing frighteningly fast. ***Pedometer … keep goal goal to 4000 with absolute minimum of 2000 steps per day ***Note that stationary bike is very good full range of motion for hip and knees
***Walk outside with two canes - USE IT OR LOSE IT!!!
***Use stairs and record how many flights of 13 stairs 2-3 flights per day - more than three is too much of knee and hip pain and brings swelling
So Teams for heart, Celiac, LowCarb/intermittent fasting, Anti-inflammation
Need to add a seated exercise emphasis/team or accountability.
Edit the starting numbers to records from January 2 because they reflect closer to the last couple weeks of December and my normal eating and amount of sleep which were both very different on New Year's Eve... So Starting year of 2019 at 204.2# as of January 2.
