Oh my goodness, where does the time go! Over 200 days have passed! Normally I would lament how I've not made any progress, but I'm finally starting to make progress, so I'm super happy!
DH brought home Zaxby's (sp?) yesterday for lunch. I should have just made some zoodles and eaten that, but I ate the fried chicken strips. And then took a nap. I did have zoodles for dinner, but I probably could have gone without eating dinner, my stomach was not happy about all the grease from lunch. Hopefully I won't make that mistake again. I know how it will make me feel now, so I should be able to turn it down next time.
No more naps! I'm going to try really hard to not nap any more. Maybe I will on Sunday's, those days really wear me out. My anxiety saps up all of my energy. But during the week? No more nap! I'll have some coffee or tea
and just bear through the tiredness! Eating lighter will help with that. I usually get so tired after a heavy meal, but I'll be eating zoodles
which are not heavy at all!
Going to work out for 10 minutes today. Just the step aerobics on the WiiFit, without the riser
, so I'll only be stepping up a few tiny inches. Should be fine, no major work out for my stomach at all. Just 10 minutes, not my normal 30. And if I get any twinges at all I'll stop.
I'm still taking probiotics, they help so much with digestion! I'm so glad that they are gummies, I take too many pills! Just the Juice Plus alone is 6 capsules, not to mention all of my meds. I'm really tired of taking all these meds. I know I need them, so I'll keep taking them, but I'm hoping very much I can reduce the number of meds I take once I get my weight down and my health improved.
I had some bizarre dreams last night. I ended up sideways in bed when I woke up. One of the dreams I was told that I had type 1 diabetes and it hit me like a ton of bricks, (literally). Made me really think this morning. I've known for a year and a half that I have pre-diabetes. We started to work on our food straight away
, then got sidetracked and stopped. It took me this long to finally be working on what I eat. To realize that I need to change... or else! I wonder why it took me this long to get back on track, actually on a better track because DH was still cooking not so great for you, but very yummy food. I'm doing most of the cooking now. The kids can eat it or eat a sandwich, their choice. My oldest loves zoodles, my youngest, not so much.
If you can't tell already, I'm in a really great mood
I don't know if it is that I'm finally getting good sleep, or the changes in my diet, or that I'm finally losing weight... probably all three!! I'm loving the feeling of being in such a great mood. I hope I can stay in this great mood!
