Because for some reason people have this idea that when you decide to become healthy, you can only eat salads🍅 24/7. Don't get me wrong salads are good but there is no way I could just eat lettuce all day, everyday. This new program gives me the freedom to ➡️CHOOSE⬅️ what I ➡️WANT⬅️ to eat. It doesn't tell me what to eat. It doesn't tell me to eliminate specific things from my diet. I get all the food groups, even carbs! It teaches me portion control and moderation. It allows me to gain control over my food, unlike other "quick fixes" that says stay away from this and that.
My mom was diagnosed with DM2 about a year ago. I’ve been hard on her checking her sugar and to write it down and let me know since she lives 3 1/2 hours away. I got this text from her and lit up. Her new monitor sends her results to an app and she’s forwarding them to me. Sometimes it’s difficult to balance between being a daughter and a nurse. Especially when I see first hand what diabetes can do if uncontrolled.
I was really nervous about being able to follow timed nutrition while I was at work. Those of you who are nurses know how hard it can be to even get a break, never mind be able to eat at certain times throughout the day! Luckily today went really well, and the meals I brought I could eat pretty quickly if I only had a few minutes. The only thing I’m worried about is that this is supposed to be my final meal of the day, and I normally eat dinner when I get home from work, so I’m afraid I’ll be super hungry around 830 tonight! But I’m trusting the process, so here’s hoping my body cooperates!!
Is it too early to say I’m already sore?! Day 2 was an hour long booty workout and BOY did it burn!! You make think those resistance bands look innocent, but let me tell you how wrong you are. I can already barely walk, which stinks since I’m headed to a 12 hour shift... but at least I started my day off strong! 💪🏼 Day 2/80 ✅✌🏼
