Two weeks back, I chatted with my old friend and he shared the result of his medical check-up. To his surprise, the doctor informed that he has borderline cholesterol. So he was advised to increase his physical activity and watch out his diet.
His story really prompted me right at the moment to evaluate about my health and lifestyle too. The following day I grabbed my sneakers and started a morning walk for half an hour. I intend to lose weight too and I set a goal to achieve 55 kilos by December 1, 2012.
I started to incorporate more fruits and veggies too on my diet, walk as much as possible everyday, use stairs instead of elevators, make mental notes on my calorie intake and began to educate myself about nutrition.
It is almost two weeks now since I set out this journey but there are days that I am tempted to eat croissants for snacks or to skip my exercise routine.
My weight ballooned during pregnancy and it is difficult to get rid of those extra pounds. Also, I really don’t have the strength of mind to do it until two weeks ago. The journey to lose weight and to be fitter is not really an easy one but I am conquering it one day at a time.
Wish me luck!
