Wow, it's been about forever since I blogged.
I've started something new, though, and I want to have a place to come and put some thoughts down about it.
In January, when I got back from vacation I went to see my physician for a yearly check-up. She told me that my cholesterol was too high and she gave me 3 months to improve it. I'm pretty sure that if I don't make a significant improvement she'll put me on medication. Medication I probably wouldn't need if I ate right and exercised more. So. . . that's what I am trying to do.
I've downloaded MyFitnessPal and acquired a fitbit to track my exercise. I've dusted off my gym membership and I am logging every. single. thing. I. eat.
I'm trying to hold myself accountable for the shape my body is in. No one else can.
I'm still mom, still work at a wonderful place in Portland, I STILL KNIT. I still spend too much time in front of a computer or an iPad, but I'm going to try this and see how it goes. I think it can only be better.
One of my goals is to lose some weight. The day I started tracking what I eat and weigh I weighed 149 lbs. I'm really not sure what my ideal weight is, but I think I have some clues. Back fat. Muffin top. Bingo Flaps. These are my enemies and I will see them gone. I would like to see my collar bones. I can't remember the last time I saw them.
I'm setting my initial goal to be 125lbs. I'll adjust as I get closer to the goal.
