Ann Posted December 26, 2014 Share Posted December 26, 2014 I'm starting my third W30 today, along with a couple of friends who are first-timers. My primary two goals this time are decreased body pain and better sleep. My low back/left hip (osteoarthritis) and left shoulder (tendonitis) hurt all the time. And now my ankles are starting to hurt, too. I'm 49 years old, much too young to feel this way. And because of those aches and pains, it is difficult for me to sleep. To make things worse, I recently developed an allergy (hives!) to all NSAIDS (Advil, Aleve, aspirin, etc.). So I'm going to reduce my inflammation by diet! Of course, I'd also like to shed a few pounds (I could stand to lose probably 25). Along with this W30, I'm going to try to walk a little every day. I have a FitBit, but I'm not going to set a specific "steps per day" goal, but simply to just walk a little every day. I did a W30 in July 2012, and what turned out to be a W24 in January 2013. I have a really hard time "riding my own bike", and generally tumble back into my bad habits fairly quickly. But each time I do this, I think I get a little better about making good choices. And at least a couple of healthy adjustments have stuck with me for the long run (like cooking with coconut oil, or having eggs/V8 for breakfast instead of a latte and scone). But in all honesty, I have been waaaay off track for a long time. This morning, I had a good breakfast, and my plan for the day is to do a little meal planning and grocery shopping. And of course, walk a little. Here we go!! I'm excited! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
