My Small Improvement

What’s one small improvement you can make in your life?

This is a good question. I have a few improvements that come to mind. First save more money. Second to improve my eating habits, such as more fruit, more smoothies and less carbs. Third do more art after work.

The one I want to focus on right now is improving my eating habits. I was diagnosed with lymphedema and lipedema along with having rheumatoid arthritis. I have gained so much weight that it’s so hard on my body mainly my legs.

What I have been doing

I have been walking more daily, and incorporating fruits with my dinner. Been doing lymphatic exercises daily along with my cycle

What I need to do more

I need to be on a better schedule with my morning exercise and plan out my breakfast and dinners better. And to do more exercising in the evening.

I want to incorporate the 75 soft challenge but I’m not a reader, so in place it will be my art work. I am really going to focus on the 45 min exercise in the morning and evening and drink more water. Then I’ll add in more time with art making. I want to work on it in phases.

The other part of this is to read a book I got about lipedema (yes, I’m not a reader, but I need to read this). In the book it has some information about what foods to eat. I need to come up with a better system on meal planning.
