This is CJ the (soon-to-be) Mighty and I am kinda scared right now. This past Friday I took part in my work's annual wellness screening for the first time and far too long and I just read my results. Glucose - a little high, cholesterol - high, and blood pressure - very high. In addition to these alarming results, my first child is due in about 12 weeks and I am concerned that I won't be able to be there for her and my wife. I need to make some real changes right now and I am rededicating myself to my fitness starting with this challenge.
Goal: Lose 13 lbs by the end of this challenge.
Walk - My previous fitness interests have focused primarily on lifting, but until I get my blood pressure under control I will be working on some safer activities. To that end,I will be following this walking plan 4 days a week over the course of the challenge.
Chart Calories - I will be using the Lose It app to chart my calories daily - primarily staying at around 2000 calories per day.
No Fast Food - It's expensive, it's gross, it's unhealthy, and I can't seem to give it up. There will be no eating from the drive through for the next month for me.
Doctor - Besides spraining my ankle about 5 years ago, I haven't seen a doctor in a very, very long time. I need to find a doctor, make an appointment, and discuss my weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and all of my other issues with them and work on a plan to take care of them. Today, I looked up some local doctors who are under my insurance plan and I have a list of names to call during my lunch tomorrow. This will quest may evolve as I make an appointment and (hopefully) meet with a doctor before the end of this challenge.
