Starting a New Lifestyle

My name is Tina. I am a high school English teacher. I love movies (Charlie Kaufman is a genius), books (The Great Gatsby is the quintessential American novel), music (mostly indie or jazz), art (I browse etsy daily), and culinary adventures (I would have Anthony Bourdain's babies in a second... much to the chagrin of my husband). Although I am a newlywed, my husband and I have been together for eight years.

My name is Tina. I am a high school English teacher. I love movies (Charlie Kaufman is a genius), books (The Great Gatsby is the quintessential American novel), music (mostly indie or jazz), art (I browse etsy daily), and culinary adventures (I would have Anthony Bourdain's babies in a second... much to the chagrin of my husband). Although I am a newlywed, my husband and I have been together for eight years.

Recently, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and PCOS. I realize now that my relationship with my body needs to change permanently-- no temporary solutions will work. I must begin to care about my health, which means feeding my body the right foods and getting out and moving more.

Lately, I have been reminding myself to stay positive about these changes; sure, I won't be able to enjoy the foods I love all of the time, but, to quote the wise Cookie Monster, those are sometimes foods. Now, I must flex my epicurean muscle to make meals that are both delicious and healthy. I must learn to love this new way of living.
