How many darn reasons do I need to get healthy? Aparently 9,990,123,456,432,654!!!! It has been so surprise to me that my weight has been on the rise, just like the temperatures here in TN, but I have been in a state of denial! That's until I went to my ENT and had him confirm I have sleep apnea!! So, not only does being fat, eating not healthy,& not exercising impacts your physical appearence, it also makes you stop breathing. Was I shocked? Not really, but was kind of hoping that my weight had nothing to do with it. I was soooooooo wrong!!! Now, I have a fire under my ass or should I say oxtgen blowing in my face to get this weight off. Mentally I am there, but I am not sure I am 100% there. However, I dont really have much of a choice.
According to the ENT, I stop breathing several times and I wake up more than the average person. This would explain my energy level being in the dirt and always wanting to sleep. I am going to be placed on a machine (like a cpap)for the next three months to monitor and collect data and I will return in three months. When I go back for my follow-up visit, I would like to be 30lbs less. Is that possible, I think so!
When do I plan on making this change? Dinner!!!! I am making blackbean burgers and a salad. NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reguardless if it is 110* outside, I WILL get out tonight and exercise!!!
