Note To Self...

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I am feeling like CRAP! And it is my own fault! Why? Because I have been eating like crap! I try and watch what I eat, but sooner or later, I'm going to slip something in there that my stomach just goes, "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!" At some point today, I did that. I just wish I knew what it was that hated me. I'm thinking it was the protein bar I had this afternoon for a snack (after I'd had plenty to eat for lunch), but whatever it was, I wish I could get rid of it! emoticon

Going to the doctor tomorrow for my yearly checkup. I asked her last year about getting a colonoscopy since I've had so many health issues due to IBS. She said that insurance would cover it, but not too thrilled about going through the "before". Since my Mom had colon cancer a few years ago (and thankfully lived to tell about it!), I'm more aware of that.

I know that eating better and exercising more would help me feel better health-wise. The Dad of a very good friend of mine has lost a LOT of weight and has been able to get off all of his Diabetes medications. No longer does he have to give himself a shot 30 minutes before he eats as he used to. I just want to get to the point where I'm not feeling like crap by the end of the day because I ate poorly.

I bought myself a heart rate monitor tonight and looking forward to being able to use it soon! (Hoping Amazon is fast!) That will be a great way to make sure my workouts are as effective as they can be. I'm also getting a workout set I've always wanted as well, so between working out at home, Zumba and Hoops, I should be on my way. Now if I can JUST get the eating thing down! GRRR...

    Your symptoms drew my attention, as I had GERD problems until I changed over to the EAT RIGHT FOR YOU TYPE diet using your blood type. The book is by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo. Ask your doctor what your blood type is and then look over the food lists to see what foods to eat and which ones to avoid. Worked wonders for me. I'm type a and I had to avoid heavy meats and some veggies and fruits, but I basically eat a plant based diet now, and I stopped eating TUMS with every meal! Now I have no stomach problems unless I eat too many of the foods that don't agree with my body. there is a website, Eat right for your type .com. Can't hurt to take a look, might even help; I hope so. emoticon

    Eating right has always been my challenge as well. You'll get there. I wonder if there's a place on SP that allows you to note days that your stomach ends up not agreeing with you. Then it might be possible to figure out what the common denominator is over time.

    I really liked my HRM. I pushed me to exercise harder. Then my dog chewed the strap and that was the end of that. :( I'd definitely like to get another one though. Definitely post what kind you got and what you think of it.

    Did the protein bar have soy in it. When my innards were at their worst, soy would lead to horrible gas and cramping.
