It's the start of a new year. That means new goals, a fresh start.
Did you make resolutions this year? I am continuing to work on health and for me that means getting my body into better shape. A big part of my health problems is related to diabetes.
I am working on some other goals too, I'll share about some of them over the coming weeks. I'm excited about the new things this year is bringing.
Lose 30 pounds
That's realistic but it feels like a lot. That is this whole child (I don't intend to lose him).
Eat Smart has offered to help by giving me this fantastic Precision Digital Scale. I love it. I don't have to wait for it to 0 out before I can get on, I just step on and it shows my weight (I don't love that part, I wish it would lie to me a little more). It's sturdy, I don't worry too much about the fact that my kids love to stand on it and look at the numbers lighting up. It's even backlit, so I can step on it in the dark and see my weight
without seeing my belly even in the middle of the night! It runs on AAA batteries, no special batteries required - and it comes with a set of 4 to start you out.
Bonus: This scale came with a tape measure. I recently learned about how to measure myself so I can track inches lost, not just pounds!
I am charting my loss with a fitness journal blog that is nicely hidden and accessible only to a few people. Okay, you could probably stumble on it if you hit the right button on blogspot for long enough, but you would not likely know it was me.
What else do I like about Eat Smart? Every month they choose a cause or a foundation to donate a portion of their proceeds to! In November they donated 100% of the proceeds to the American Diabetes Foundation and December to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Eat Smart has offered to help one of my readers as well by giving away a digital scale! This is a fantastic prize that you don't want to miss out on!
