So this is what 50 is all about well I don't feel any different I'm not sure if I really would feel different of not but I was expecting more or different. When I turned 25 I was so depressed you know being a 1/4 of a century old but this time its a 1/2 century old and its no big deal . For sure I thought I would have been crying in my Rootbeer .
My goal was to be fit and healthy by 50 On the negative the scale well we have a love hate relationship going on it hasn't budged much at all. I'm still waiting for the doctor to get back to me on my lab work guess no news is good news since I went ot the lab on November 24th. Today I did the mammogram bone destiny and chest x-rays.
A word on the mammogram the 1st I did one back about 10 years ago I thought I was going ot die it hurt like a mother. New technology for the mammogram was much nicer easier on the body did not hurt at all I was putting this off because of how painful it was years ago. If anyone has a fear its a piece of cake now.
Next month I will get my pap done and a EKG. With medical out of the way time to look back and see how much healthier and fitter I am.
Yup I am more fit still have a long way to go. I have added salads to my diet (though still not enough of them) took me time to find a salad dressing I like I have 2 now. I have been eating real fish and not just canned tuna fish or fish sticks. Its now Tilapia and frozen fish fillets, still have improvements but hey its a start isn't it? I eat whole grain breads, do canola & light mayo, eat less fast foods, drink either almond milk or soy milk, 2% cheeses, drinking more H2O , I love peanut butter OMG how I hated it when I was a child. These are simple changes I have made so far and yes my journey is no where near.
I exercise regularly either workout at home or I go to the gym. Then when I choice of foods is before me I try my best to pick the best food thanks to SP Food Show down emails my favorite feature its very helpful.
So in a way I guess made I did make my goal fit by fifty as its a never ending journey. I have had very few flare up with my RA this past year, so that is awesome and I feel really good. Once I get my lab results and test results I will post to keep everyone updated on my progress here.
I may not look the way that I was hoping for 50 but that's okay too
It can only get better
