So I was really excited about doing the The Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge, but I find that I am not inspired by the topics at all. Some of them seem a little interesting, but I find that i am not inspired much to write about a lot of them. So I might post a few of them, but I don't think I will be doing too many of them.



Day 11 - Theme Song

Well it is probably cliche, but really the best song would be Eye of the Tiger by Survivor. I mean really, what better y to keep yourself on track than this song. Everyone has to fight with themselves, and sometimes others, to get to the top. Everyone wants to succeed and be their best. This is really the only song that I can think of that fits.

Day 9 - Keep Calm and Carry On

Day 10 - Dear 16 year old me

If there was one thing i could go back and tell my 16 year old self it would be to get off your butt and get active! I am now struggling with my newly turned 35 year old self to get into better shape. And when I say struggle, I really mean it. I struggle daily with trying to eat healthy and get enough exercise. If only I could go back in time and tell my younger self how much easier it would be to be healthy later in life if only I had been more active and ate better when i was younger. Things would be a lot easier now if i were healthier. There is a a good chance that i would not be struggling with Diabetes now if I had started being healthier when I was younger.


The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge

Hey everyone - I just wanted to tell you about a new activity I'll be doing this April. The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. I hope you'll join me in writing every day about health. It's going to be a lot of fun and I'd love to see what you have to say about each of the topics, too. All you have to do to join is sign up here: http://info.wegohealth.com/HAWMC2012 and you'll be able to start posting once April rolls around. Looking forward to writing with you!

I only just found this, so I am a little behind. I am going to jump in on the current day, but in some cases you might even see a few posts a day so i can play catch up and get them all in!



Mundane Monday

So obviously I am not the greatest at keeping this blog going. But change is always possible and just maybe I can make a go of posting more regularly. However to be fair, life has been crazy for me these last couple months. Back in the beginning of February I slipped and fell while visit family and ended up spraining my MCL. Took a couple weeks to be diagnosed and then another month of physical therapy took place. I was just discharged from PT this past Friday. I am not completely healed up, but just about there. So I can start to get back on track with things in my life. I have not been doing my best at taking all my meds, but I have addressed that and am getting better. Luckily while hobbling around with a bum leg, I have still been able to lose weight (thank you PT!). Since starting my renewed weight loss mission back in October/November I have lost about 20 pounds. I am about 7 pounds from having lost 10% of my starting body weight. So I am doing good on that front. It is just taking time and patience. Currently I am trying to cut some carbs from my diet a little at a time, starting with potatoes. That is my main carb source and it needs to be dealt with. But it will take time, because I just love my potatoes!

Here's to being more regular in my posting . . . .
