And What Have We Learned?
Monday, June 27, 2011
Ugh...just ugh! I have made some horrific food choices over the past couple of days and my body is telling me that it doesn't like it.
I felt great on Thursday morning. It even felt great when I went to the doctor that afternoon and they did not write "obese" on my chart like I have seen before. My blood pressure was unbelievably great. I can attribute all this to eating better and exercise. But once the dr. told me that there was a spot he wanted to biopsy and then send me for some more test over a different issue, my mind started to tell me I was old and just getting older. I started to walk different and to feel sorry for myself. It kind of freaked me out. To make matters worse, the sample of the very low-dose hormones he gave me for my intensifying hot flashes don't seem to be working. I SO wanted them to work so I could stay with the mini-dosage.
My eating has spiraled out of control since then. Ugh...just ugh! Why did I let that affect me that way? I HATE excuses and justifications and here I am trying to make them.
Sorry for this blog having such a negative feel to it. I usually try and write positive things because I really feel a positive attitude goes a long way in cultivating a healthy lifestyle.
I guess if there is an "upside" it is that my body has reaffirmed what my mind hasn't quite figured out, yet. Making poor food choices is not good for me. Not in the short term and not in the long term. I was so sick last night after eating crap all day.
Medically, I don't know what the results are going to be. I am pretty sure that all is well and the dr. is being very cautious - especially since I am a new patient and have not been for my "yearly" checkup in about 5 or more years. But, I do know that I can MAKE myself feel much better by eating right and continuing my exercise program.
