Lifestyle Change, Here I Come!

Hi there! I've been with SparkPeople since November 2010. I've really been enjoying all the resources here, and they have contributed to my success, though in May 2011 I slowed down on my exercise. I was diagnosed with diabetes last year in 2014. This was not a surprise - my grandmother, mother, father, and sister are all diabetic. I was doing ok with it initially but I've let my role as my mom's main caretaker get in the way, so my numbers have crept up. I've recently recommitted to doing ...
Hi there! I've been with SparkPeople since November 2010. I've really been enjoying all the resources here, and they have contributed to my success, though in May 2011 I slowed down on my exercise. I was diagnosed with diabetes last year in 2014. This was not a surprise - my grandmother, mother, father, and sister are all diabetic. I was doing ok with it initially but I've let my role as my mom's main caretaker get in the way, so my numbers have crept up. I've recently recommitted to doing things more healthfully. I got a new fitness watch for my birthday and I've really upped my walking time. Spark also has tons of resources to help with this journey, so I'm looking forward to exploring Spark from a whole new angle. I work in a mostly sedentary job, so I've been trying to incorporate more movement at work in addition to adding more exercise into my life. My husband and I go for at least one walk with the dog when I get home from all my commitments. As some of my pictures will note, I also have a hobby in medieval recreation, so I dress up in pretty clothes and keep busy with that hobby frequently throughout the year. I also enjoy singing with a local chorus for the Sweet Adelines organization (a barbershop group for women) and with the medieval group. Looking forward to much success here and to making many new SparkFriends.
