I'm trying to aim for 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies each day. It's harder than I thought it'd be. I used to eat waaay too much pizza, so I'm trying to find another way of getting that fix. Like a lot of people, my job can be very stressful and pizza always makes me happy.
Every day I've been eating an apple, orange and a banana, and trying to fill up my lunch and dinner with a lot of veggies. This has, unfortunately, had quite an impact on my stomach and Gas-X isn't doing the trick. Does anyone have any suggestions for, um, relieving some pressure aside from letting it out? I like to be as much of a lady as possible about it

My nutritionist diagnosed me with high cholesterol and blood pressure last week. I can't say I'm surprised, but it's still hard to comprehend. I've pretty much eliminated all fast food. There's a strong history of heart disease in my family, though.
I begin every day with a bowl of steel cut oats with some type of fruit, like strawberries or banana. She recommended I eat fish and I grimaced. I cannot stand the taste of fish. When I asked if omega-3 supplements would help (along with losing weight), she said yes, but not as much.
I've been walking every day for 30 minutes, too, if not longer. Is anyone else in the same situation when it comes to fish? Most of my friends and family enjoy it, but not me. Nasty.

I stopped by a local park on my way home today. It's staring to get colder, but it was nice to see other walkers. I did about 20 minutes around the frozen pond.
It was a lot warmer this past week, and I noticed I wasn't as depressed. I'm concerned about the upcoming polar vortex, though. After the holidays I think we're all just ready for spring.
Time to renew my apartment lease and, as I expected, it's going up by $25. My goal is to own my home within the next 3 years. Getting tired of paying rent.
I hope everything is well with all of you!

I woke up this morning feeling utterly depressed. It's something that happens every year around this time. There's really nothing going on. No holidays, no birthdays, no reasons to celebrate. There's also really crappy weather.
I can't remember the last time it didn't snow here in Binghamton. It's getting quite old. Granted I've never cared for the warm, hot weather that hits us around May/June, but I also have places to go.
Like my job.
Moving to the country wasn't necessarily a good idea, especially since I don't have four-wheel drive. Maybe someday, though.
Just got back from Wal*Mart. Bought cat litter, chapstick and Special K Cracker Chips. While they're still fairly high in sodium, I find it's better than real potato chips or-gasp!-Oreos.
I plan on going walking at the mall before work tomorrow. Sometimes I grimace just thinking about the day ahead, and I realize that I worry way, way too much. We all need to just take one day at a time.

I hope everyone is doing really well!
It's been snowing non-stop here in upstate NY. Definitely time to get a four wheel drive vehicle.
I go to a weight loss clinic this Friday morning, and am really looking forward to getting more support. While I love Spark People, I believe I pulled away because it was a bit overwhelming at times with all of the groups. I think I'm going to just stick to one or two groups and go from there.
I've been researching on ways to incorporate more whole foods into my diet, too. No more fast food, especially anything fried.
I hope everyone is staying warm!
