So far... GOOD!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Nothing like being scared by your doctor to really change behavior. I've been very faithful to my diet and have started walking again. I can already tell a difference and have lost 2 pounds! Onward and Upward!

Scared Straight

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Both my husband and I recieved health news that scared both of us -- he is diabetic and I'm pre-diabetic. Add to that my hypertension, high cholesterol and high stress levels I am a mess. We've both been scared straight by our doctors and have started the Sugar Busters diet. Simply -- vegetables, fruit and lean protein. I have to do something to get back into shape and stop taking all the medicines I'm taking.

remembering who I was

Monday, July 09, 2012

I was cleaning out a book case and found a memory book people did for me when I changed jobs. I re-read the entries and heard things like... you are so full of energy... you are so optimistic... you are so positive. I barely recognized the person they were talking about. I want that person back!


Now is the time... I'm tired of being tired

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I was in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ and had scheduled a manicure and pedicure at the Spa. Because of that I had full use of one of the best spas in Arizona. I didn't pack my swimsuit so I went shopping in the resort to get a swimsuit --- how humiliating! The woman, who was trying to be nice, kept insisting that my size 22 body could fit in their "large" -- size 16. I am tired of not being able to wear fashionable clothes, tired of being tired and ready to be the person God meant for me to be -- a healthier vessel!


A New Year... a New Me?

Sunday, January 02, 2011

My husband doesn't make New Year's resolutions and I think he is on to something. We should live each day as if it is New Year's Day. This year is the year I have to get control over my eating -- trying to get to the heart of why I eat the way I do. I was diagnosed with a blockage in my heart and I'm tired of being tired. This is serious business and one that I must focus on. I'm in love with a wonderful man, I have a challenging job with very talented co-workers and basically a great life. It is time I start acting like it!
