Starting Over

Monday, March 17, 2014

How many times have I started over! Well, at least I am trying to eat healthy and making myself look at my unhealthy lifestyle habits. I am going to do the DASH diet for a week or hopefully two weeks to reset my digestive/eating system. I love fresh veggies but find it had when not at my house.

My first test will be tomorrow as we are heading to Nashville with the church Roadrunners. Eating out and not knowing where may be a problem. I am going for a salad as I plan the day. Hopefully when we stop for lunch it will be a place that has a good one. More tests will be Wednesday night at church and Friday at our mold group basket guild. I need lots of reserve to pass on Friday's dessert and Wednesday night meal is usually high in calories. I may have to take something to eat and not even go to the kitchen to eat with friends.

I did walk two miles today and planning on getting up early to walk in the morning before we leave if I get a good night's sleep. I also did some light weights and exercise today as I ease back into a rigid strength training.

I have started back on sleeping pills because I can't exercise and eat right when I don't get sleep. I had a few left from last time and will ask for more when I go back to have blood tests to see if I have cured my anemia with changing my eating habits. I am afraid dieting/eating less over the last two years has been what caused the anemia in the first place. Trying to get lots of greens in my diet.

My week away to the coast was wonderful and I so enjoyed taking my older granddaughter with me. My eating was really bad but I did do slow walking for several hours shell hunting for three of the days. Riding for three days didn't help though.

I can do this thing!

    emoticon for the walking!

    emoticon finding that balance so you can absorb all your nutrients is sure a challenge on the road so good luck with that. Every good choice counts so don't beat yourself up about the times when you make a different choice. You are loving yourself every time you take care of yourself.

    emoticon Good choice!

    emoticon Enjoy your friends, they are precious... let that be the focus of meals, not the food!

    Cook everything in cast iron if you can. it will add to your iron. Sounds like you know where the challenges will be, you may need to get creative to find a diversion to the cake. Find someone who doesn't like cake (they do exist lol) and chat them up. emoticon
