Slowly but surely I'm making progress towards a healthier me! I started out by getting a home glucose monitor (my doctor told me I wasn't pre-diabetic but I needed to limit my sugar). I feel that the best way to do this was get the monitor!!! Diabetes does run in my family so I would rather be safe than sorry.
Next I bought myself a new home blood pressure monitor. This I (try) to use at least once a day (I even added it to my daily goals)!! I do have high blood pressure, I just wasn't checking it as often as I needed to.
The main thing I need to work on is getting my daily fruits/veggies in. Since I work different shifts, this is a real challenge for me. I don't always remember to take a lunch and usually wind up buying something from work. If I set my mind to it, I know that getting my veggies in won't be a challenge anymore but a joy!
At home, I really need to prioritize my activities!! During this week I am going to create my daily journals for everything I track in my other goals. I feel that by doing this, I will be able to do these things without needing to remind myself!
All in all, I am working towards a healthier and better me!!
