This year I'm going to be very open. I've been diagnosed as psychotic depressive and schizophrenic. The medicine I've been put on has made me gain weight, and I'd like to prove it's possible to maintain a healthy weight while on these types of medication. However - I'm mainly going to document my BMI, as I find weight directly to be more of a mind f#&@. My current BMI is 25.0. My goal is 20.0.
What I'm doing differently
Skip out on the junk food. Whenever my boyfriend or I go to the corner store for cigarettes, we always get pop and a candy. I definitely need to skip out on both. I'm a chocolate fanatic, so I'll probably have to ween myself off haha.
Stop drinking pop. I've done it before for 2 years, I can do it again. Instead of picking up a carbonated drink I can always choose a Gatorade when wanting that flavorful taste.
Pick a stick routine. Write down a workout on a popsicle stick, and pick one daily to do. I saw this idea on pinterest and loved it!! I may do another stick cup for hoop tricks to practice daily.
Workout daily. This was never a problem for me, until I moved in with a hoarder. No room for hooping. On the contrary, I'm moving some crap around to make my own little space to hoop. c:
I'll be documenting my journey to health each week, so keep an eye out for what I'm doing differently or if I'm succeeding. c:
