Enjoying my walks in the morning + bad news

Saturday, April 13, 2019

I think this is the most I have done, in continuing to take a walk outside in the early mornings.
There was one day I missed because of weather, but inside I missed the walk. I really enjoy doing it in the mornings. I go out and pick up the news paper and put it on the porch, then go and do the same for my neighbor across the street. Then I go for my walk. emoticon
When I stated, I only went around my block, then I went to two, now I go to the shopping center.

During the day, sometimes I just need the feel to walk. So I get up and walk around. I try to get up every 20 to 30 minutes. I heard that this is a great way to keep your metabolism going, and that it is good for you to get up and stretch/walk.

I've notice a improvement in my thinking. I am more positive than negative. Not sure if that has anything to do with my walking, but I am happy for it.

Today, when I walked down to the shopping center, I stopped by the Walnut Cafe and got some breakfast. I got a quiche (artichoke, spinach, pesto, roasted red pepper and Swiss), some grits, and a buttermilk biscuit. I know, not the healthiest, but the serving was so big, I couldn't eat it all. Amazing, normally I would have forced myself to eat as much as I can't, almost did, but I quit when I felt full. I hate it when I eat too much and feel like I'm about to be sick. emoticon

Some bad news emoticon I got my results from a health fair, have high cholesterol (LDL) and TSH. See a doctor next week. I don't take pills, but I want to be and feel healthy. Maybe I will lose the weight I gained back. Yes, a few weeks ago I weighted myself and was the heaviest I have ever been. I wanted to cry and just give up. But I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I guess I will have to take some meds. to help me get started to a healthy me.

I am addicted to sugar and carbs. But when I look at my health report, I'm pretty healthy in most areas except what I mentioned. And these I REALLY need to get under control. I'm gong to try and be brave, but this 58 year old is about worn out. I'm believe God's word on healing, but I also believe my Pastor and thank God for doctors to help us. I believe also, a lot of what is happening on the outside, starts from the inside, and that is what we eat.

Now if I can live up to what I say, maybe I will do better. Like the little engine said "I think I can, I think I can" NO-- I am say "YES I CAN" emoticon

    YOU ARE RIGHT! YOU CAN DO IT!!
    If you can keep walking that will help your attitude and maybe it will be easier to change the eating habits.
    I can hardly wait for our weather to decide if it going to continue being winter or give up and let us have Spring so I can get outside and walk again. Being cooped up this winter has added a couple? of inches to my waist line and back side, not to mention the scale is rising again! I get bored too easily trying to do the walking videos inside, I do enjoy them once in awhile.

    I know that you will get back on track again and lose those extra pounds. The meds might even help. I take both a thyroid and a cholesterol pill daily and have for years, I'm 72, but sometimes I feel like they are a crutch and I go on eating the wrong foods. I hope you can do better than me.

    GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR PLAN! emoticon I'm cheering for you!
