To all the 2300 and some guests that I've had stop by my page, I say a big mahalo! I have so enjoyed blogging this past year and sharing my baked goods with you.
I have been one who has done my best to be as healthy as I knew how as far as my diabetes went. But as I have spent the past 19 years focused on insulin, prescription changes and just trying to 'survive' I have missed out on many other things.
Lack of energy, allergy problems, gastroparises, acid reflex, high cholesterol, migraine auras. These are just a few of the things that I have had to learn to live with over the years on top of being insulin dependent. For the most part I just existed. Getting through another day without having some physical issue put me flat on my back yet again was my goal.
About a month and a half ago I made a decision.
A decision that I would take control of my health and no longer just wait for the next side effect to come.
I hired a personal trainer and started exercising daily. I have added vegetables, fruits and beans to my daily food intake and removed much of the processed, enriched and refined foods that were once a part of every meal. Even though I was eating low-fat and watching calories, I still wasn't getting anywhere with how I felt inside.
Since I have started making these life changes I feel like a different person! I had no idea that some 'health' foods could be so bad for you and make you feel like crap! Seriously!
I am on this journey to learn how to improve my life through the foods I allow into my body, and exercise. I am loving it!
So for now, until I progress further and get a better understanding of different ways to bake healthy for me and my family, I will be putting this blog on hold. I need to focus on me. Finally!
Again, thank you so much for your stoping by and comments. You are the reason I have enjoyed doing this blog.
I'll meet up with you again when I am a healthier, stronger, happier me!
