Becoming healthier and happier

Improving my health is most important to me. I have a few serious issues I am dealing with, and I'm finding that SparkPeople is the right tool for me to deal with these issues in a healthy way.

Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

Thanks for commenting on my Silver Linings (1) blog, I don't feel fit or inspiring most of the time, I am just in a constant competition with myself to be better than I am now.

Have a great day

How did your final weigh in go?

I worked out in the pool today even though it was kind of chilly out. I forgot to put sunscreen on and my back got a little burned. I won't forget to put it on tomorrow!

Tell George we're getting a lot of blackberries here right now. It's been nice weather to pick them too.

I've been busy this week with company. I need a week to rest up from being on the go so much.

I plan on having a quiet relaxing day tomorrow I hope you have a good day as well. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Can't wait to use the towels - hopefully the rain will pass tomorrow. It can rain on Tues. Wed and some Thurs.

I hear you on the going crazy--and the realization that it is important to stick to the basics that work for you! I've been really struggling this round because we have *so* much going on, and I feel like I should be doing "more" health wise... but I've had to pull back and focus on the basics or I'd have just burned out and go "boom," LOL.

Consistency is more important than going full out at an unsustainable pace!
