Important Info! Please Read!

Thursday, June 30, 2011

There's an article that gives important facts about sugar free. You end up drinking empty calories and still craving more-

et-soda-may-be-making-you-fat-2504019/

You shouldn't consume it unless you're diabetic. I drink a few ounces a day of regular soda just because I like to taste a little flavor besides when I'm drinking water. I learned years ago anyway that sugar free gives me migraines. Please think about this.

    I've switched to the flavored sparkling waters: they're just carbonated water with a touch of flavor- no sweeteners. It took some getting used to, since they aren't sweet at all, but they satisfy my urge for the fizz.

    Interesting article. I don't drink diet drinks ... not a big soda fan, makes me burp alot. emoticon

Many, many of my friends do though so I'll share the info around.

Hope you are being successful and having a good week.

  I gave up drinking Diet Coke when I was pregnant with my daughter. After she was born I couldn't stand the taste any more. Now I only drink diet drinks occasionally. I find regular sodas to be too sweet.

A Half Step Forward/What's Been Going On

Friday, June 24, 2011

So I haven't been able to have nuts or seeds the last 2 months. It had quite an impact. I had to eat the smooth yogurts. I couldn't have most fruits and several veggies. So on and so forth. I compensated with almond milk, cashew butter, and almond butter. I can now have a little of those things, but not every day anymore. I'll eventually get around to getting all that adjusted on the nutrition tracker.

I am going to a neurologist. It could be anything, from MS on down. There's a muscle relaxant that helps some, but I just can't exercise like I want to. Otherwise, I would've been at my goal weight this spring.

I have a hernia. That started keeping me from doing abdominal exercises for a few weeks. I won't have to have surgery. I'll be able to do more exercising in a couple of weeks. I don't know how my dad lost weight with just diet.

This is my update. I'm finally not upset enough to type most of it out.

I hope we all have a great weekend!

  The weekend was good. I managed to see a few family and friends at a baptism and a church meeting.

Positive reinforcement today....I got to wear a shirt that I thought I would have to give to somebody. A few years ago, I bought it. I didn't think I'd ever be able to wear it. I could wear it today. It's not too small anymore!

A Wild Spring

The weather has been really something. Tornadoes in CA and MA. We lost power a lot last week. Let's make sure we've got the right kind of Sparks going.
