My daughter is so funny. She is 17 years old and in love with the band ONE DIRECTION. Oh, yes...they are HOT...ha! That is what she thinks. She came home today and listened to their music VERY loudly for about an hour. It was blaring. I have to admit, I do like their music too.
If you are not aware of the HUGE craze here for this band. Watch the video. I would imagine quite a few of you reading my blog know their music and might have a BIG FAN in your home too. Don't we all remember those innocent crushes that we each had when we were younger?
Today I had my 14 week check "in" at my clinic for health & wellness. I am down 32 pounds. Hmmm... I have to say that I am having a huge problem right now. I have ZERO energy and I'm always FREEZING cold. It is really so hard to deal with. I was put on natual supplements- a thyroid natural and DHEA vitamins. I slept 10 HOURS last night. Yes, that is too much for me. I used to sleep 6 hours at the most and now I am sleeping way too much. I took lots of tests today and I was THRILLED with the results. I am so much healthier and I feel great- minus the lack of energy. As for weight loss- I am not ACTIVELY striving to lose anymore. I want to maintain my loss and eat the same way as I have been. I know that eating "clean" has changed me so much and I know that it will help me as I grow older and face ailments that will could potentially arise as the body ages. I had three women come up to me at church Sunday and ask "what is your secret? What are you doing? How did you lose so much weight?" I explained my new way of eating and literally- this is what I heard.... "oh, that is too hard!" I get it. It is not easy and I would be lying if I said this has been "so easy." I made a choice and I took that promise to myself VERY seriously. I wanted to control my "out of control" eating. I wanted to eat food that would be GOOD for me. I want to have a healthy heart. (*my dad died at the age of 52 of a heart attack) I want to exercise more again. I feel so positive about how good I feel now. I wish I had done it sooner!
Have a great day!
