This week has been all about changes, making them and thinking about them. My health so far this year hasn’t been great and unless I make a change it’s not going to get any better. I’ve also been thinking a lot about our routines and the things that I would like to change about them.
There won’t be any radical diets or healthy living regimes for me, it’s all about taking baby steps to change. Top of my list is getting my blood sugars under control. I’m listening to my body and recognising the signs of both high and low blood sugars. As well as eating smaller but more frequent meals I’ve also been upping my intake of vegetables and fruits. I’m making better choices. I’m hoping that at my next diabetic check up in November I will be able to reduce the amount of medication I currently take.
The next thing I want to change is the amount of time I spend sitting on my bum. I’m looking to start some gentle daily exercise to get me moving again. None of this is about loosing weight, I love my body and am totally comfortable in my skin. This is about my health and being around for my children for as long as possible.
I’ve been thinking about routines lately too, I’m someone who thrives on routine and organisation. No matter how hard I’ve tried, since the beginning of the year I just can’t stay organised. It’s time for an overhaul, to drop things that aren’t working and try something new.
