Back on Track:
It's been awhile but I'm motivated to get back on track. I've been semi-watching my numbers (I know not good). My A1C is 6.9 not great but not horrendous. I had a very stressful year but I'm committed to getting back on track. I find if I write things down I keep to the plan; some reason seeing everything in writing makes it real for me. Yesterday I had a long visit with Dr. A my nutrition guru. She was not happy with my numbers; I gained the weight back that I lost last year and I feel tired and sluggish. After I left her office I started my 21 day detoxification program. Shakes, supplements, fruits, vegetables, plenty of water, and exercise. This plan is very low on the carbs so I have to watch the B/S. After the 21 days of no processed food I should lose my cravings for the unhealthy sweets and carbs; in theory anyway. One thing good about this plan is I don't have to think about food much, mostly steamed or raw veggies and fruit. yes i know 2x's the amount of vegetables as to fruit. The only issue that keeps rearing its ugly head is the no starchy veggies and yes unfortunately for this Celt that means potatoes...
