Hello, my fellow health and fitness minded friends!
I realize I've been all over the place with my blogs, moods, weight and everything in between. I apologize, but you are seeing someone struggling not to melt down AS IT HAPPENS. Exciting, isn't it??
For those of you just tuning in, I am getting married in less than three weeks, pretty close to the one year anniversary of when I found my dad dead in his house, leading to a pretty horrifyingly depressing and stressful time where I adopted his untrained (including NOT potty trained) 2 year old German Shepherd and moved into his house (having to become fully a grown up FAST and learn to take care of a house and finances - things I was blissfully ignorant of before). I also could no longer stay at my job as required travel (and my fiance already travels for work, and we couldn't leave the dog alone), so I've been unemployed. Add to that the fact my mom died when I was 10 and I really, really can't come to terms with the idea I have no parents anymore for help, advice or memories.
Haha, but I will be fine. I've made the choice to be fine. To do what needs to be done for my health and sanity first.
I'm sitting here at the oil change place, drinking coffee and ignoring the Boston creme donuts!
I am also down to 123.4- lost some of that water weight and feel less bloated.
I wanted to share this link:
American foods that are banned in other countries
America has a bad trend of choosing to make money first, ask why people are getting sick later. Compared to other Westernized countries, we will put any old crap into our food in order to make it cheaper. We've got to learn to value health FIRST, and then try to find a way to make it affordable. I wouldn't be raising such a stink, but other countries have figured it out, so why are we still routinely putting dangerous things into our mouths?
Be smart out there, folks, it's your life you are protecting.
