Improvement Room

The Olympics can inspire! You want to do better,to BE better. What are you doing for YOU? There's a lot of people,cats,PLANTS that need a helping hand. Getting your exercise? How's your diet? SHARE!

.got a Y membership
.looking into courses at a community college type program
.

I'm also trying to establish a fitness regimen,which is where the Olympics thing becomes a 2-edged sword. After seeing all those ads I want a BIG burger,HUGE fries,and a small reservoir of Coke from a certain OFFICIAL SPONSOR.

Ah, a good thread

I've been abusing my body for the last oh....35 years....so I got a wake up call called diabetes and now I am feeling better than I have in decades.

- diet overhaul from whatever I want to low carb, low protein. Lost 30 pounds so far and lowered my high blood sugar to almost normal people levels.
- quit smoking for 3 months, but fell off that wagon. Will try again to lose that monkey on my back.
- try to walk for 2 km a day or 10000 steps on the pedometer.
- cutting out pop and attempting to wean artificial sweeteners out of my diet
- recycle and buy earth friendly cleaning products
- reading more and watching less tv, got a library card to save money on books.
- attempting to unplug a bit....not spending as much time on line...well except my forums lol
- seeing a chiropractor to help with the pain I thought was normal....had no idea how much difference it could make.

That's the majority of it. I figure if I can keep the diet inline and quit smoking again it's a good start for now.

I also need to quit smoking. It's harder in the summer because it's so beautiful outside. I have a bit of social anxiety as well so it's a nice "escape" when I get overwhelmed by too many people. :s

I know that those are just excuses, but... argh.
