Have you ever been forced to make New Year’s Resolutions?
I told myself I was not going to do the whole, “I am gonna get in shape this year resolution blog post…”
But it is not my fault.
Yesterday I went to visit my family doctor. I have the distinction of being his last patient in 2014. Kinda neat I guess. 🙂 Anyway, the reason for my visit is that I have been struggling with depression lately, and I am suffering from all the symptoms that go along with it – weight gain, fatigue, lethargy etc. He has scheduled me for a full physical in a couple weeks to rule out any diseases like cancer, or thyroid problems, etc. But since I am gaining weight, he is doubtful it is somthing like that. So that put me at ease, but when your doctor follows that with, “Your BMI puts you in the obese category…,” you sit up and pay attention. His prescription sounds, for the most part, like a forced new year’s resolution:
1. Avoid alcohol. Eat Healthy. Exercise daily.
2. Drop at least 15-20 pounds (This should be simple if I do #1 lol)
3. Take a Multivitamin for men and an extra 1000Iu of vitamin D daily.
4. Purchase a Natural Full Spectrum light and use it 30 minutes daily.
And since this is starting today, I guess my doctor forced me to break my no-more-new-years-resolutions-resolution. I used to really enjoy exercising and eating healthy. To be honest, I want to do this, but I have very little motivation to exercise or avoid all the delicious carbs. You would think that my health would be motivation enough. At least my wife loves me enough to try to make me do it until I begin to like it again lol.
I guess that is all.
Oh. One more thing. Have a happy and blessed new year.
