I went to see the Nutritionist today. It was fun. She had some great ideas for quick and simple meals that are healthy. I tend to get into a rut very easily, especially at dinner time. So I'm making out my grocery list and will go shopping for things tomorrow. I'll also be making a weekly menu to follow each day for each meal and snacks. I'll have this completed by tomorrow in time for my grocery trip. the daily/weekly menu will be posted at eye level on the fridge - so in case I'm tempted, I can see my plan and go forth!
The nutritionist has me making an appt with my primary care Dr to get all of my blood work done (annual physical) she also suggested that I ask the Dr for a referral to a food disorder specialist (therapist). No big surprise to me right there. But I need it and I know I do. So it's all okay. I'll go do all of this willingly because I want more than anything to be healthy. I want to feel good, have energy, play hardcore with my kids at all their favorite sports (I'm such a tom boy!) and most of all, be here to watch them grow up. I still can't believe I ever let myself get this way.
But here I am, as I've said before... Here I AM...
