NaBloPoMo Day 16
I’m going to lose 50 pounds in the next year.
How am I going to make this phenomenal transformation? I’ve decided to make one healthy change a week and let the progress of each week build on the previous week.
This past week, I decided to go back to using my CPAP machine. Getting oxygen to my brain seemed like a good place to start. It’s been a bit of a challenge. It dries out the inside of my mouth, which has gotten to be pretty painful, and makes my face cold when I sleep. The cats seem afraid of it, so they keep away more, which is a plus.
Next week, I am going to start moving my body again. Each day, I need to do something – a walk, some strength training, yoga – to improve my fitness. I’ve decided not to be any more specific than that, because I want to work it in naturally. I’m not setting a time limit yet, either; if I decide to stop walking after 5 minutes, I can. I have a feeling, though, that once I get out there, I’ll just keep going.
I need to make these things so easy for myself that they become habits.
