Week 2

Friday, February 07, 2020

It's day six (?) of being back on Spark and week 2 of healthier eating habits.

Having retired in August hasn't really slowed life down any but I have found myself being far more sedentary since then. In addition to the unwelcome weight gain... I have found out that my cholesterol is now "slightly" elevated.

I'm kind of grateful as it's forced me to get more motivated about losing weight. My workout today was only 25 min on the treadclimber but I managed to kill 180 calories and it's a start. I am also getting more disciplined about entering everything I am eating. It's keeping me honest and mindful about what I'm putting in my mouth. Helps too when I input something and see the evidence if it's putting me over my count for the day.. helps me to resist it.

I'm hoping to find some new friends to connect with too.

Staying strong and hopeful

    Nice to meet you, Uschi,

    I missed your posts the previous times you were here. It sounds like you have been going through many of the life events that I have also faced over the past few years. We have a lot in common.

    Are those photos of your back yard? If so, beautiful. What a restful and tranquil space to focus on and enjoy.

    Peace and Care
