after my visit to the doctor.
I had been feeling like crap. My joints were aching.
I was always feeling tired and dizzy.
I read up on the statin I was taking and all these problems can many times be the side effects.
That and the fact that I had gained so much weight and am now menopausal.
My "numbers" were not good. And it showed that I was
So I came home that night and grabbed a big trash bag.
I filled it with almost everything in my frig and in the cupboards.
Since then I haven't cheated once. I'm not eating any saturated or trans fat and NO cholesterol except for the cholesterol found in fish and chicken.
I'm not on a diet, die-it....
I'm eating to live.
So last Tuesday morning before my birthday I had my blood drawn for tests.
The next day, being my birthday I went to lunch with my sister and one of my nieces. Since I had done the blood tests, I decided to order whatever I wanted.
I had chicken salad on rye and bean salad and a bite of my niece's muffin. When I went home, I only had berries and non-fat yogurt for dinner.
Then the next day I realized that I still had a gift certificate to Starbucks so at lunch time I went and got a
Large Mocha Frappuccino.
It was very good but as I was finishing it I thought...
What The HELL am I doing?!!!!That was Thursday.
Saturday I worked in the morning. It was crazy busy. I had a full boarding kennel. Lots of dogs were going home and more coming in. I had to do a lot of rearranging and squeeze in one more dog that wasn't on the schedule.
I had to keep running up front to get the incoming dogs and I would pass the employee lounge.
I could see the box of donuts sitting in there, on the counter.
When I got to the front office, all the girls were munching on donuts and rolls.
After the clinic closed and when I was by myself finishing up,
I had to walk through the lounge to the restroom.
On my way back out my eyes were drawn to the box.
I went up to the box and opened it.
I looked at the frosted little things.
I closed the box.
Nope, not doing it.
I have my doctors appointment in a few days, I'm excited to see what my "numbers" are.
I'm feeling much better though I am exhausted.
But I think that exhaustion is due to the fact that I am not getting enough sleep
and I am working in 100 plus degree heat every day.
Wish me Luck!
