So easys to get discouraged

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Have slid away from sugar free. Recently traveled to Dominica in the Caribbean and got a travel cold. Ended up with sugary stuff to suppress the cough. Ugh. Also, because I am wheat free, ended up eating a lot of trail mix - so high in sugary calories. Now am trying to regain that good feeling that came with being sugar free. I did have some recent blood work and wow - cholesterol 169. Triglycerides 90. IMPROVED. Am also down a size. I am headed back to good choices. Need a shot in the arm or kick in the pants for more exercise, though.
BTW, Dominica is beautiful. A rain forest. What 300 inches of rain can do. I'm an Arizona girl - we are lucky to get 10.

    You will make good choices because you are blogging about doing it.

    so easy to catch colds in airplanes, the air conditioning makes sure that everyone gets their fair share of everybody's germs!
    glad you enjoyed your time in the Caribbean, the rest will pass. don't worry, you're doing fine. life is not a straight line.
