Diana over at Scale Junkie has set a Healhty You Challenge (HYC) to give those of us who need a littel support in becoming healthier. Whatever your health goals are, to increase your exercise, loss weight, eat better, this is a great way to obtain online support from people who are running the same race as you are.

This is my story, to eat better, to increase my movement, and lose weight.
This is really sad, I have never weighed this much before. I'm not even sure if I ever topped out here when I was pregnant. I would like to think that I am the type the can set a goal and go for it. Who needs those baby steps......I do, my first goal is to lose 20 pounds by my daughter's high school graduation (June 6).
I got on the treadmill Saturday and after only 15 minutes of moderate walking I could feel pain in my lower back and hips. I got on the Wii Fit last night and after 15 minutes felt it again. I am too young for this. How can I help God further the kingdom if I can't even further myself more then 15 minutes of movement.
- Eating, lots of salt, little water intake, too much diet coke
Tell me what wrong with that story, am I a disaster waiting to happen? Not to mention the weight gain is screwing up my thyroid medicine, which is probably why I want to nap more; and if I take off some of this weight I might actually be freed from the CPAP machine.
New goals for this week:
- Move for 15 minutes a day
- Reduce salt intake, I realize food has different tastes, however everything to me taste salty. I need to find the true taste of the food I am eating.
- 1-2 diet cokes a day. I know this seems like a lot, but your are looking at someone who could easily drink a six pack.
- Drink 8 cups a water each day.
With health issues present why do we still continue our old habits? Because they're comfortable and familiar to us. It's time to break the cycle. I want to be around to see and play with my grandkids.
Stop by next week and see how I am doing, I'll be honest.
