2012 begins on a Sunday, the start of the week. New week, new month, new year. New me? No. I can’t change THAT much.
But, two trips to the ER for chest pain in 13 months is more than a message (it’s a great fee- doctor, hospital, ambulance), it is a foreshadowing of things to come if I don’t make changes right now. Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of Americans. And I can do something about it.
Step one: diet. The highly recommended DASH diet is doable (I don’t have to eat tofu and kale.)
Step two: aerobic exercise. Dance is my choice. No one has to see me.
Step three: weight bearing exercise. Callenetics (sort of Pilates) for the first month. Then small weights.
Step four: less TV time. I think I will read and work on my scrapbook.
Step five: do more and worry less.
So, what is better than a resolution? Change for the better.
(Plus, I want to post much more often, even without pictures.)
