Okay, I know I've said this before but I really mean it this time!!!
Today is the day I start eating healthy carbs with a focus on plenty of protein, veggies and some fruit. Avoiding sugar, processed carbs, nightshade veggies. I will have a treat meal once a week that can be anything I want.
I was at my healthiest years ago when we ate this way. My fibro was so much better, I could breathe better, move better, sleep better, our cholesterol was better. After our son was born I fell into the fast food stuff trap and I've never gotten out again. I gained all my weight after our son was born, and my health has suffered something fierce. My problem is keeping up the energy to care what we eat! It's morning right now and I feel motivated and excited. By mid afternoon that all changes and things tend to go down hill.
I'm trying to stay motivated!
I'm doing this because I want to:
* Move more easily - get up and down without pain.
* Get in and out of our boat this summer without feeling like I will fall in.
* Run with my son again (foot thing)
* Breathe easily again - I carry weight around my rib cage (apple shape)
* Sleep better (slight apnea and fibro pain)
* Control GERD
* Heal my plantar fascitis (9 months of pain - seriously?)
* Help fibro problems
* Lower cholesterol levels
There's more, but I could be here for awhile.
Just losing weight doesn't help with the fibro. I've done that before and felt no different, but when I followed a healthy carb way of eating it really helped. That's why I feel the need to do that way of eating specifically again. This time I have to do it with muffins in the house for my son. That's hard!!!
Wish me luck and lots of motivation!
