I have never been great at keeping resolutions, but this year I will take things more seriously.
Last month I had a biometric screening.
What is a Biometric screening you ask?
Biometric screening is a part of corporate Wellness programs wherein employees measure their blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglycerides, blood glucose, and any other measurement that corporations and their employees choose to measure.
I was NOT pleased with my results.
My blood glucose was 107mg, a healthy person should be under 100mg, it’s a little higher but that still put me in the dreaded RED ZONE.
My dad is pre diabetic, he has been keeping healthy and exercising to keep himself from becoming diabetic. So now I want to make a change, for myself and for my family.
I would love to say I want to be back to my pre baby weight which was 115lbs, but I am going to be realistic, I just want to lose 20lbs and be healthy and have more energy, because I sure will need it as Jacob gets older and more… (whats a good word for “crazy hype”?)…..intense?
My health/fitness resolutions:
- no more soda! I am addicted to soda, (Pepsi being my poison). This will be one of the hardest thing I would have to give up. I could drink soda all day everyday. I love having a soda as a pick me up during long days at work. Infact.. I could use one right now.
- eating breakfast! for the pass few weeks I have been eating oatmeal in the morning and by lunch time I wasn’t as hungry, therefore I ate less for lunch! woohooooo
- drink more water! Many people people mistake dehydration as hunger! besides….drinking water helps your skin. It’s a win win.
So that is my game plan! to a new me!
Now off to the store I go! I can’t start working out without some new and cute workout gear right??
