OMG!!! How long will I feel this way

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

I did something I haven't done in a looooonnnnggggg time today. In fact I will say it has been 10 years since I last did it. It felt good at times, then stressed, then good in the end. What did I do?? I walked. I walked for 30 minutes.

My co worker and I walked the CNN centers parking deck today at lunch. I walked for 30 minutes...30 minutes. I have been a member of Sparkpeople for a couple of months now and I follow little tid bits of info at times.

Here's the thing. I went to the doctor last week and he told me I had Bronchitis. He also recommended that I have a physical. I did and my bloodwork was not good. I am very close to being diabetic. In fact he said he would catagorize me as a diabetic, but I can do something about it. If i act now I will not have to utilize insulin.

He gave me this diet plan to follow. I am basically eating white meat turkey, chicken and fish. I can have vegetables and small amounts of certain fruits.

As you know this weekend was Halloween. I don't celebrate it but I did buy candy for my son and to hand out to kids in the neighborhood. Well, my son is only 2 and there were no trick or treaters on my block.

What happened to the candy? I ate some of it...not all of it. WHo am I hurting? Myself and cheating my son out of the possibility of having a healthy Mom to be there for him.

I have decided that I am going to follow thru with this diet for 30 days as the doctor recommended, and also I am going to start to get active and move around. I know the burning in my legs will not be that way in a few weeks. But for now I guess I'll just sit back and enjoy the burn.

    Blood work was my wake up call as well. I lost a lot of weight after that but I'm still not where I want to be. Exercise is great so I bet in a few months you will love it and will feel cheated on the days you do not get to exercise. Hmm, I think some of my kids' Halloween candy is missing and the wrappers are in my trash. We all have our weaknesses but if I only give in once a year I think I'll be okay. Just do what I do and put the mistakes behind you. Good luck to you!
