What's Going Right Feb 2021
Saturday, February 06, 2021
The past couple of years I was spending more time on other and not taking care of me which is exactly the opposite of what I should be doing. Time to turn it all around and work on getting healthy & fit.
During the holidays, I kinda let it all go and returned to some bad habits .... like foods that I don't need to be eating. If I wish to heal my liver, I need to return to the same determination that I had last year when I lost weight. What's going to go right in Februay is the return to healthy eating for my liver.
* Enter meals into the Spark tracker to monitor not only calories but cholesterol (under 300), sodium (under 2,000), saturated fat (under 10) and fiber (between 20 - 30).
* No highly processed foods like luncheon meats or frozen dinners
* No fast food restaurants
*Less red meat and more chicken & fish
* Read labels put back on the shelf anything with any form of sugar like fructose and hydrogenated vegetable oils, or high volume of saturated fats or sodium.
I set boundaries with my sister with the help of a therapist when I realized my sister is covert narcissistic . Growing up, I always thought my brother, sister and I had a tight bond which I think we did when we were younger but I overlooked narcissistic traits of my sister. It was a very rude and sad awakening to realize that she was manipulating me for years and that I should have never let her into my family. I'm learning to work through the loss and concentrate the good I have in my family.
My goal after getting my nutrition back on track is to be more consistent with my fitness and set up a routine to follow.
