Here's to new beginnings

Monday, July 29, 2013

Today is a new day a new start.
I think/hope I finally have it through my head I can't eat like I did when I was 20. When I went to the doctor the other day he mentioned my weight. I knew I had gained and hated to hear about it again. He told me that it had been long enough and to not use the excuse of quitting smoking. (its been 2 years now)
I also saw that the bigger size that I hated to move up to was getting a little more snug that I liked. Lastly.. while he was doing my normal yearly exam he felt something that has scared me. I have to have a diagnostic mammogram. He ordered it as soon as possible (this Thursday). He did say it was probably nothing but I could not tell if that was to try and make me not worry or he really meant it. Either way I know that I need to get healthy all the way around. So maybe its finally gotten through my head and just maybe I can stick to it for the long haul this time. I guess only time will tell.
SO I pack a healthier breakfast and lunch for work and am making it a point to go to the gym 4 days this week.
Best of luck to everyone. Have a great Monday

    There are some good books you might enjoy as far as eating goes. Chalene JOhnson has a book I hear great things about, Green for Life is good, This is Why You're Fat (and how to stay thin forever) by Jackie Warner ~not a fan of the title but it has great info and is cheap, The Spark Solution or the other Sparkbook that came out before that, EAsy Vegan Meals by Spark Recipes, The SparkPeople cookbook.

    Pinterest has good recipes and motivational quotes and pictures. I used that actually to put together my collage that I in turn put on my fridge, in my bathroom and next to my night stand when I was losing 30 pounds. 100 Days of Real Food is a good website. There are also pages on Facebook I like to follow: Fitness Girls, Clean Food Living, Fitness Motivation, Ashy BInes Clean Eating Diet, Food Babe, Female Fitness Tips, Taralynn McNitt ~awesome blogs and stories on Tumbler too for her~.

    There are a ton but those are my favorite. SOme have recipes and workout tips, some focus on food and information about it, etc. Great resources:)
