Just cold hard facts tonight. Overall, I am pretty healthy already. My blood pressure and heart rate are ever so slightly elevated. My glucose is a little bit on the low side. The BMI and waist measurement are honestly shocking. I had no idea it had gotten that bad. How is that even possible, that I could be so self-unaware? Perhaps it’s just a form of denial. But there it is. No denying it now. I have been avoiding this all week, which is itself a form of denial. What do you do with that? Seriously. So there is no comprehensive plan at this point. Do you have a great plan ? Cause I’d love to hear about it!
On a more positive note, I have managed to exercise every day this week, which for me is HUGE!! Today’s exercise was 2 1/2 hours of hiking at Ruffner Mountain! We saw the coolest yellow bird and two snakes! Another positive is that I was made a member of the Birmingham Girls Club today! YAY! Super excited about this! One mission of this group is promoting philantrophy: therefore every month there will a challenge that’s sort of like a reverse DietBet: I will pledge to do χ and friends, family, supports will pledge γ dollars to the month’s chosen charity. This month I promise to walk at least 30 minutes everyday. That seems like a stretching kind of goal, hard-but doable. If you’d like to give to the Crisis Center, Inc. , here’s the link http://www.crowdrise.com/BGCMayChallenge/fundraiser/hilaryweston . Thanks for even considering it.
