Saturday in Nova Scotia..snowy one minute sunny the next but still ever so beautiful. I slept in late, catching up most likely from the night before when I got only 2.5 hours. Yuck. Hard to stay awake in class yesterday afternoon in class with so little sleep. Movies last night with hubby, son and son # . A great night. We saw The Hobbit in 3D!! Great movie.
So today I sleep in as it was quite late getting to bed. Foot a bit tender, but not so bad as the other night. I have decided one thing for sure from all of this. Sugar and my feet do not go together. A couple o years ago I told my dermatologist that I thought my feet got itchy and red after I ate sugary foods, he said "No way" I thought I was imagining things. Yet, how come it always seemed to happen??
A few months ago I ate a 6" sub at subway made on a flat bread. Which I prefer to a subway bun. Within 2 hours my feet were itchy!! OK now I really start to pay attention.
Two nights ago before bed I ate a piece of fruit cake. Wrong choice on many counts. Anyway, buy 0200 I was awake and in pain+++ My foot ulcers were burning off. HELP. So I may be wrong, but I don't think so. So I am off sugar of all kinds at all times. I did not eat a lot of sugar over the holidays, but still. So along with trying to get this weight off, I am going to start watching my wheat and gluten.
I did buy a gluten free cookbook before Christmas at Winners. It looks quite good. I am going to try some things in there. Still watching sugars.
I read wiigarden-nymph's blog the other day. She has a word for the year and when she told me about it, I thought what a good idea. I thought for a minute and the first word that came to me was confidence. Now that may seem strange, but it was what truly resonated for me and with me. I sat and thought more about it. Yes, it is something that I can work on. Many who know me may say I seem confident. Yet, i they really knew me, they would see that yes at times, I have confidence, but many times I do not and it has held me back. If I have the support and believe it can happen or will work out etc..I am OK, but many times I can put on a good face and then..kaboom..away it goes.
So I am going to try and be confident in myself that I can do what I say I can and will do. I my confidence starts to lag I give up. I drop out and throw in the towel. Yet, I would support anyone else. So I am going to support me and learn to have confidence in me.
Once written down I am more inclined to try and not put off working on something.
So here I go..cutting out sugars, losing weight, walking better and being a better person.
I am confident that I can do this, if I work on it and I am confident I will try my best.
