Yesterday I received blood work results from physical I had last week. And it told me something I already knew - I am pre-diabetic.
I had a hunch this is the news the blood work would produce.
The last six months have been very hard to endure - I separated from my husband, filed for divorce and started things all over again.
I am still living in the house we shared, which is under renovation.
I have taken a huge hit in my income, being on my own, which has had a result in the food that I purchase.
I have 4 jobs now, and I work every day. I tend to purchase food that is cheap and quick to make, because I am always out the door, running to the next appointment.
These test results have kind of brought my schedule to a screeching halt.
My friends and family tell me I am working too much and not taking care of myself.
They are right.
No time for good meals, no time for exercise, no time for restful sleep.
I need to change some things. Going back to Sparkpeople and keeping me accountable for my food choices and exercise will help me.
Hopefully, this divorce will be final in the next 30 - 45 days, and I can stop thinking about it and use that energy toward something positive.
And I am sure that as time passes, I will look back at this 6 month period and find things about it that were good, that helped me get stonger, that helped me develop my intiution and skills.
I just need to take things one day at a time and have patience.
