I say this because I don't think I have true grasp on this healthy eating thing yet. I don't know. I haven't been really eating healthy at all. I've been trying, but I don't think I'm being successful. Actually, I know I'm not doing it right. I might make a substitute here and there, but I don't think it's enough. I know little things count, but still.
Today, I had a smoothie from McDonald's. I got the blueberry pomegranate. It was really good. I followed it up with some water. Then it hit me, I can make these things at home and I can probably do it better and healthier too and at least I'll know what will be going into it. LOL So far, I feel full for the moment. I'll probably need a snack a little later this morning, but that is normal. I know in the colder months, I like things that stick to my ribs and makes me feel warm inside and full, like cream of wheat and oatmeal and grits, eggs, bacon and other things like that. I think I may try alternating between smoothies and the other stuff. I can pre-make the smoothies when I don't want to make oatmeal or cream of wheat. I think I'm on to something. LOL It does take the little things sometimes, doesn't. LOL

I went to my doctor today for my follow up appointment. Needless to say, the news was less than stellar, but I knew this because of the way I've been eating and not really exercising. I've been walking with my dog, but since it's been rather cold in my area, we haven't been taking really long walks.
Well, today my doctor has told me that I have high blood pressure (beginning stages) and has prescribed me a prescription to bring it down. I have to see her every month also so she can monitor me too. I am pissed! I am pissed with myself because I allowed this to happen and it was preventable.
We talked about my weight and she is willing to give me medication, but she wants me to try and jump start my weight loss and if and I mean a big IF, I can lose a few pounds by my next appointment, she will prescribe me a prescription to assist me with weight loss, but I still have to be monitored by her while I'm on that also. Hopefully, I will be off the blood pressure medicine because if I'm not, then I won't be getting that prescription to jump start my weight loss. I know I can do it because I've done it before, but I don't know what is wrong with me. I haven't even been trying to do the right thing health wise. Has anyone else been like this? I got to get motivated because now my actual health really does depend on it.

WOW!!!! Where did the year go?!? 2014 is here. I realized this year that I am not making any new years resolutions this year. The only thing I plan on doing this year is try to be the best healthy me that I can be and work on me and learning what I like in every aspect of my life. I hit the big 4-0 last year. I almost became depressed because I happened to come across a list I made when I was 25 and it was my life goals. When I read over the list, I became a little depressed because a lot of the goals on the list I have not met.
The more I thought about it, the sadder I became. Then I realized something, alot has happened in my life also that was not listed on my goal list. I realized "THINGS HAPPENED!" I will live and get over it and move on. This year I want to have a little more me time and I am going to learn how to juggle that along with still caring for my family. I am going to be more in tune with my health. I am still walking because of my walking buddy and that I am happy about. So, now I need to focus. 2014 a new year and a new start!

Well, I can truly say that the holidays have done me in. LOL I can't be mad because it was my own doing and I must say that I enjoyed my family. My hubby and I hosted Thanksgiving dinner at our house and it was great, but we had a mountain of leftovers. we still have leftover desserts. Luckily, me and my walking buddy have been walking but I haven't been losing because I haven't been monitoring my eating habits. I've got to get that under control.

Meet my new walking buddy. This is my new puppy. Last week, my hubby and I decided to adopt a puppy from our local animal shelter. Isn't he a cutie. He is three years old and has a lot of playfulness in him. He's house trained and crate trained already and loves to go for really long walks. I have no excuses now. I have to go walking. I love it. Yes, some nights I don't want to go, but I don't want him using the bathroom in the house. So, my options are either to not take him and have to clean up after him or take him and pick up behind him outside and have the smell of it outside and not in my house. To me, its a no brainer. Plus, he is such a sweet boy. How can you resist that face? I've already lost 1-2 pounds already, so I think we are on to something here.
