Clean bill of health!!!

Friday, October 11, 2013

Well once again I walked away with a clean bill of health.........unless of course you count obesity..............which I do have and count it! It is dangerous to be overweight, not follow a healthy eating plan and being sedentary.

So time to move on with a better way of living! Getting more fiber in my diet (recommended after my test this morning), more exercise, and to hopefully lose weight from doing both!

Someone on one of my other blogs stated that it is not just having the knowledge but committing to using the knowledge...........yup and that is the hard part! So tomorrow after work I will do at least a 10 minute workout (starting slow so as not to hurt myself) and trying to work more fiber into my diet (more fruits and veggies, nuts, whole grains). I will have to work that in slowly also so I don't kill everyone around me with its side affects!! LOL!!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I start a 7 day work week tomorrow!!!

    I am doing some incredible 10 minute workouts for stretching and chair yoga on Youtube. I can't even believe the difference it's made in my fitness level in just 3 days. Honest!

    Glad to hear it! Good news from the Doc always makes me feel better. Those straight days can really mess with your body. I used to shop for lots of easy treat kind of things and just haul them in my car or keep them in my locker when I had long stretches...things like the single packets of nuts or seeds-sometimes I bought the big bag and pre-portioned but sometimes the big bag was too tempting. I liked the little boxes of raisins. The cylinder of Sunsweet Ones-the individually wrapped prunes-4 is a serving and I never had more than 2-just sweet enough and good fiber. I hard boiled a dozen eggs. Cleaned a bunch of celery and left some outside ones for stuffing with peanut butter and made the rest into celery stix. Peeled and made a bunch of carrot stix. Packed those in the ziptop baggies. I got good (whole fiber-not Quaker) instant oatmeal...I liked the Nature Valley (I think) and kept those handy if I wanted something warm and hearty. I'd buy apples and oranges and bananas and depending on season, pears, peaches and pomegranates and that way I could just grab stuff and head out the door or keep it in my locker...most all that stuff does not have to be refrigerated so I could keep it handy instead of grabbing candy or chips out of the machine or ordering that late night pizza because by the time there was a break that was the only thing open to get.
    Try to remember that "Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail" and take that extra time to shop and prepare, just for yourself, for your health. Your body will thank you and you can do a better job at work and at home if you're properly nourished. Will keep you in my thoughts as you head into your weeklong hell!!

    Super news that you have been given a clean bill of health.
    You know in yourself that a gradual change in lifestyle is going to be the best if you want it to stick. But I also know you have a crazy work schedule. Can you plate up a nice salad to take to work for your break? It's something I do often and it can be quite filling with just 2-300 cals, depending on protein & dressing. The only thing to remember with that is .... Don't freak out with the after effects of a lot of beetroot! emoticon
