Posting has been limited the past couple of months. I haven’t really been on track since May’s vacation. I’ve had three business trips and two personal trips in that time.
I backtrack whenever I travel and five trips in six weeks has predictably left me heavier and less fit. I am scheduled to arrive home from this trip to Atlanta Wednesday evening. Thursday is defintely a wash as I will be jetlagged and cranky.
Friday is the reboot for healthier living by:
- Kaia Fit 5 am class
- tracking food in MyFitnessPal
- Making better choices (although I’m working on that all week)
This header is a bit of misnomer since I’ve not been following any kind of a plan. I’m eating healthy foods for the most part; just too darn much of it. If I’m not hungry at snack time, that’s a sign the meal before was way too big!
Shrimp and Grits
I had seafood in Maryland…
Lots of good food in Kansas besides this flatbread (not so good) and the taco salad (very good).
I will get on the scale for the actual starting point next Monday. I did have to weigh in at the doctor’s office recently and I was up 8 pounds fromm the last visit in March. That’s a lot pretty quickly.
The good news is that my HbA1C was exactly the same as in March so I can stay off Metformin for now and she changed my diagnosis from pre-diabetes to impaired glucose tolerance.
Other good news was that my blood pressure is fine without any other medication other than HCTZ 25 mg. After 12 years I was able to get off Diovan!
I’ve attended Kaia Fit when in town but not religiously or on weekends. It’s time to get serious about it as I know this type of exercise is the reason I was able to get off those medications.
My challenge is to make good choices these three days traveling and be disciplined in all aspects of living.
What helps you get back on track?
