On The Road Again

I am on the road again. The road to a healthier me and I am almost excited about it. As much as I want to be healthy again I'm a bit scared too. There is so much more riding on this trip than before. In reality there was always a lot on the line but I didn't want to admit it. I have been doing a lot of research into diabetes and getting my list of questions ready before I meet with my doctor. I want to do this right.

I am still having moments of pity and some self-loathing. Sometimes I am so mad at myself for getting so off course and letting my body go. There are times when I walk by a mirror or a window and I catch a glimpse of myself and I am surprised! Is that really me? Yep, that's me. I think there will be a lot of soul searching in the weeks to come. But that is a good thing! I have to figure out what has brought me to this point. I know a lot of it has been not taking care of me first! These last years have been very stressful and I have been so wrapped up in keeping my family together and with some semblance of normal, I have completely let me fall by the wayside.

The Goal: to achieve a balance in life. Healthy eating, exercise, family, friends and personal time.

**My week on a scale of 1-10:

*Tracking 6 - I start the day right but I fizzle out as the day goes on. Gotta work on that
*Exercise 5 - Gotta work on that too. I have joined the lunchtime walking group but I didn't walk every day.
*Eating 9
*lost 1.75 pounds


  1. It is going well. I was just reading your blog about the 17 Day Diet. I'm going to check it out too. How is it working for ya? and is the hubby following it too? I need to find something for my hubby to follow where he still feels like he's getting what he wants!
