Yes, amazingly there is a new post on this poorly maintained blog of mine. If blogging could be likened to a dietary intake I would need to consume copious amounts of All Bran to be more regular.
At the beginning of the year I had a goal to maintain 10,000 steps per day. I failed … and dismally! However, I have improved on last year. So I am going with the same goal next year. I am pretty confident I will achieve it in 2014. Why am I confident?
During the year my Father had a life and death struggle with Fournier gangrene. This form of gangrene runs rampant in diabetics and begins in the nether regions. It is a very rapid killer and it was touch and go for Dad for a while there with several weeks in hospital with many operations to save his life and remove the infection. Thankfully the doctors and nurses caring for him were brilliant and managed to save his life. That experience, and realisation that diabetes is on both sides of the family has led directly to a new resolve.
The first step was to begin tracking my diet again with . I am now aware of what I am putting in and making smarter choices. It has also left me to question why I fell off the wagon previously … I enjoy the healthier food!
The second step was joining my local gym. I love the gym now and one of the key determinants of going there was the 24×7 availability of the gym, something my previous gym could not provide. Whilst I am not an everyday visitor I am a regular visitor and am getting my moneys worth.
The third driver is I am a regular visitor to The Back Dr at Shellharbour for chiropractic care. Safe to say that I have not felt better in years! My chiropractic health was absolutely disastrous, it has improved, and will continue to improve. I now also have orthotics, something which were grossly overdue. My feet were as flat as a very flat thing!
All in all the three factors are leading to a greater energy level, in fact I feel guilty when I skip burning the energy. Since implementing these three factors I have dropped 11.3kg and am determined to keep going. So that is why I am confident of reaching that target.
