My Clean Return to Healthy Habits
Saturday, September 17, 2011
I have been off track now for a few months. I don't know why, really. I think it was a gradual drift from healthy habits as opposed to a sudden drop-off. I decided to blog today for a couple reasons.
The first reason is to announce that I am now officially back on track and it was so easy! I read Coach Dean's blog about starting over and he mentioned "eating clean" so I decided to check into it and find out what he was talking about. The information on the web site sounded good, so I went to the library the next day and checked out a couple of the books. I have been doing good with it. The first few days I was hungry a lot, so I kept eating healthy things and ate as often as I needed to. Then, my stomach finally adjusted to the nutritious meals and settled down.
Today is the Cooper-Young Festival, so I decided to treat myself and bought a funnel cake, BUT I shared it with three other people, so I only had a little bit AND I took the bits with the least amount of powdered sugar. I am very proud of myself for that. Only a week ago, I would've wolfed down the whole thing without thinking twice.
The second reason I decided to blog is because I need emotional support. I had a doc. appt. Monday and I let her know about the constant lump in my throat and that I was concerned because of my Hypothyroidism. She said I have an enlarged lymph node and I go in for an ultrasound on Wednesday. I'm a little nervous because an enlarged lymph node without infection can mean lymphoma and that's the last thing I need. I've just been praying and trying to stay busy so I don't think about it too much.
