for fitness and health

A week ago, a followup visit to the GP was required. I recently had some blood work done and the results weren't bad but weren't good either, particularly in the blood sugar tests.

The ensuing discussion that followed was that i needed to get this reading down, and i have 12 weeks to do it, or else medication will have to be used.

This has really put a fire under me!

Late last year, I tried the 12 week body transformation program but i was an overwelming flop. I started well but finished badly.

Today, i had an appointment with the dietician that my GP recommended. I now have an action plan.

Limit calorie intake, keep a food diary and exercise!  sounds easy doesn't it!

I have signed up on to help do all the tracking.

I am off to get a pedometer to keep myself honest! 

There is no guarantee that even if i stick to the program that it will achieve my goal of getting my blood sugars controlled, but i need to try. 

Is there anything that has worked well for you, that would help me on my journey to fitness and better health?


  1. Oh Steph, I can totally relate. Sounds like we are in similar situations. I'm working hard to control my sugars right now with my diet, since anything strenuous seems to bring on contractions. But after birth, I really need to get stuck into some regular exercise as well. A pedometer is also on my list! And a skipping rope.
    Thinking of you,

    1. Thanks Ronnie! The diet thing is hard as I have such a sweet tooth! You plan to start exercise post the arrival of the bub is very sensible. Not long to go now!
