The Addition and Subtraction
**continued from yesterday -- get caught up here.
My eating was great; then came the additional assignments. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day for 3-4 days a week. Ugh. I knew it was coming, I was just trying to put it off. After this appointment I decided to attend a core/stretch class at my gym. I hated it... in a good way. The instructor worked us HARD! Planks, jumping, more planks, with weights, and awesome stretching. I started going every week. After a month or so I asked the instructor if she would help me with some workouts. As they say - the rest is history. I've been training with her ever since. I love her. She pushes me and works me hard, all while making fun of me. :)
At my appointment in March the doctor was very proud, as was I. My a1c went down from 7.5 to 6.5!!!! I was AMAZED at what I was doing!!!
Now to the subtraction, which is an every day struggle. I gave up soda long ago. I gave up sweet tea, except the occasional when I go to Chick-Fil-A. Then there's sugar... chocolate... candy... dessert. It kills me. I can't do it. I seriously cannot seem to let go!!! I'm open to suggestions because that's one habit I have yet to break.
Oh - and in yesterdays post, I said what the scale said when I first started weighing regularly.
Welcome to the journey ... of Losing Me.
