1. Eating breakfast or at least a piece of fruit or a serving of yogurt. Something is better than nothing.
2. Drinking more water and less diet Coke.
3. Cut back on sweets.
I ate breakfast every morning. After two weeks I can honestly say I am less hungry during the day and I didn't overeat at lunch or dinner. I'm still not drinking more water than diet Coke, but it's probably half and half. I'll get there. I didn't make or buy any dessert or sweets. I still indulged in my Hershey Kisses and Ghirardelli chocolate, but I was able to keep it to a minimum and be satisfied. These changes led to a weight loss of 1.8 pounds!
As I mentioned in week one, I have type 2 diabetes. My biggest accomplishment this week was keeping my blood sugar levels closer to normal. It's always a struggle to do that.
This week I plan to begin exercising. Back when I was going to physical therapy for my knee, they had me start each session on the stationary bike. My knee felt so much better each time. I had a treadmill, but I wasn't able to walk on it, so we invested in a recumbent stationary bike so I could work my knee at home. I was using it pretty regularly until we went on vacation. I'm sad to say, I haven't had a relationship with my bike since last August. It's time for us to get reacquainted!
What do you do for exercise?
