First I would to start off by wishing everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! I pray this new will bring positive changes to our world and that God will bless each of us in His own way with what He sees fit to give us in our lives.
I know it has been a little over a month since I have posted anything and I apologize for that, but I have been having some health issues that have been weighing me down and causing me to have a foggy brain and extreme exhaustion, so I haven’t been able to do anything in the way of writing.
I had some lab work done on Friday and some things like my thyroid came back abnormal, so there are some things that need to be addressed. Not to mention I found out a few months ago that I have some components of PCOS and have insulin resistance. I was told I had insulin resistance some five years ago now but didn’t understand what that meant fully, until now. So now, I have to eat as though I was a diabetic meaning low carb and to make sure I eat three meals and two snacks a day. Yesterday, was the first day of being on this new meal plan and let me tell you what a difference it has made. I wasn’t asleep all day, I had a clear mind and energy to do about four loads of laundry, clean up my three old’s messes that she had spread across two rooms, and then later I exercised via the wii with my daughter using the Wii Fit for kids and then Just Dance for Kids. Then, on top of that, I exercised to Country Dance 2. After that I decided to chill out for the night. I felt I had done very well that day for previously not being able to get off the couch due to exhaustion. Who knew that eating too many carbs while insulin resistant can literally leave you wiped out due to blood sugar spikes and drops. I sure didn’t understand, but I do now and am still learning more about this. I know I have to eat a low glycemic diet and exercise every day to keep this insulin resistance in check and to keep from getting the full blown type 2 diabetes. Diabetes runs high in my family so really trying to avoid that.
Anyway, my point here is that following this new diet and exercise regime, I should really start to feel better and be able to get back into writing. I was up at 5AM this morning because I wanted to write so badly on one book I had started a couple of years ago and had thought was finished and now realized I really need to update that book. Perhaps, it will be published this year. We will see. The title of the book is Secret Anguish: My Journey to Better Health.
I am getting sleepy so perhaps I should go back to bed for a little while longer and then, once I am more refreshed, get up, have a healthy breakfast, and then get to work on some writing. So can’t wait to be back in the writing game.
See you later everyone! Have a great day!
