Hope for my future.

Apr 30, 2012 - 0 comments


In complete desperation to get my failing health under control before it progresses any further, I have signed a contract to work out with a personal trainer for a year. Not only will she help me get physically fit, she will also be my accountability partner for my diet and exercise throughout the week. I signed the contract so I couldn't cop out and quit-she gets paid whether I show up or not! I really feel focused and confidant-I can do this! She said she will help me to lose 100pds in a year!

diabetic meds

I've just started on a new diabetic med-Actos. Right now, with my doctors help, I'm adjusting the dosage to see how much I need. I started on 15mg which didn't help. Now I'm taking 30mg, I'm seeing a little results-but not good enough to drop my levels down to 120 which is my aim. I'm going to stick with this dose for a while till I see how it reacts with my exercise and diet changes.

personal trainer

I am failing miserably at exercising on my own, so I have signed a contract to work out with a personal trainer in 30 minute sessions twice a week. In addition, I am required to choose one gym class each week to attend. (I think I'll go with water aerobics till I get stronger, then switch to Pilates/yoga.) Aside from that my trainer also wants me to move for a constant 30minutes everyday-what I choose to do during that time is open to me. So now I have a clear goal and a fitness coach to see that I do it-proof will be in the weigh-ins!
