New beginings

It has been awhile.

I guess with all the craziness I felt too overwhelmed. But I have finally had my wake up call.

I went to the doctor last year late last year, and becially I have extremely high triglycerides and am on my way to having some form of heart surgery if things don't change.

So that hit me very hard. I have since joined a gym, with my fiance (whom I got engaged to the day before easter 2010) and he has taken a better role in this whole process.

I am now making healthier decisions, and trying my damndest to write what I eat down, I need to find a format that works best for me. I have some books with different nurtitional information to help guide me in what I should be eating and how much I should be eating, so for now, I am consistently trying to make healthier choices and better portion sizes.

For example, my lunch yesturday was a salad with a cup of lettuce mix, cup of spinach, 3 oz of chicken strips, pinch of shredded cheese, half a cup of black beans and light ranch dressing.

With mandarin oranges and garlic califlower.

Salad dressing is one of the hardest things for me, I hate balsalmic vinagarette, and being that I was raised on fat filled ranch, its hard for me to let go of that, I am deffinitely open to trying new ideas if anyone has any dressing recipes that would be great!

Have a camera now, will be posting pics of the way I look now, as well as foods etc.

stay tuned!
