Its been a long while since I have actually posted a blog-sorry. Things have been hectic, some good and some bad and with work and kids, you know :) So today I went to a nutrition class because my blood work came back BAD..I had an elevated blood sugar after fasting, and too low of one type of cholesterol-booo.. The class was amazing and I actually learned alot. Carbs CAN be our friend, BUT we have to know how many and what kind. I need to increase my veggies and fruits and proteins. Did you know an average size bagel is 4 servings?? YIKES-that is INSANE!!!!! I never knew that. Im obsessed with getting my health and body back on the right track again. In HS I am fairly sure I had an eating disorder. I used to chew my food but not swallow it, LIVED on bubble gum, diet pills, diet gum, consuming only orange juice, throw up, not eat, you name it, I did it.. WHY? Because thin was good and fat was bad. Oddly I was perfect sized in hs, yet thought I was a cow.. We are weird when we are teenagers... So, Sal actually made me stop all that and just be content with who I am, which was also a bad thing(and him telling me im beautiful and perfect even gaining weight, didnt help, LOL.. It was fabulous to feel so comfortable in my own skin and knowing that my husband thinks I am gorgeous wether I am 100 lbs or not 100 lbs, BUT it really kept me from taking as good of care of myself as I should have. OF course, if he had ever told me I was a fat ass, his butt would have been out the door, LOL soooo, he cant win, LOL.. But, I have been losing the weight, slowly but surely.. That class today opened my eyes about cardiac issues, diabetes, etc.. I dont want to go down like that and I wont. I have never been so motivated in my life. The Dr. was very realistic and said to make baby step changes, increase this, decrease that, so that is what im doing :) I know I can do it. So cheers to eating better and excersizing more! CHEERS!
