Resolve to take “Just One Step”

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

“I want to be healthy, productive and reverse all my bad habits in the New Year.”

The New Year is in full swing and many people with diabetes have started the age-old task of climbing “Mt.Resolution.” There are so many good intentions and we often attempt to do it all and fail at it all in just a short few weeks.

Diabetes Health Sense, a product of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has devised a path to chip away at the mountain instead of trying to move it all at once. The “Just One Step” tool encourages the usual goals and resolutions, but it helps you create a game plan to get up the mountain one small step at a time.

If you want to lose 20 pounds this year, a reasonable first step might be to walk 15 minutes two times a day. This one step is not painful or terribly time-consuming and with small increases in time and intensity, those 20 pounds become a more viable goal.

Health goals and resolutions for people living with diabetes can make substantial impacts on blood sugar control and overall quality of life.

Some resolution/goals to consider:

  • Losing/maintaining weight
  • Improved A1C
  • Endurance training
  • Regular exercise routine
  • Adding more fruit/vegetables to diet
  • Consuming less fatty foods

Whatever you want to do, it all starts with “Just One Step.” Visit the National Diabetes Program and its Diabetes Health Sense and take the first step to a healthier you!
