Thoughts and takes on the way life presents....

New Year, New Direction
I now have life altering information.

I went to the doctor for an infection that would not heal and just got worse with every over the counter solution I tried.

She ordered an AC1 test. That's to test for diabetes. Good Lord, she has my attention. Turns out there is currently no sign of diabetes. My sister who has it said that she wished she addressed the first warning signs two years earlier and had acted on them. I have that opportunity to straighten up and fly right.

Husband is on board for Thyca cleanse diet. Coaches on board for support and kick the butt coaching.

The only thing in my way is my I-don't-wanna mindset. Good thing I have a good coach. My sister (coach) and I both have the same ailment, not being able to resist the comfort foods. But by working through what triggers it, now I can actively choose: Do I want this Butterfinger candybar because I want the Butterfinger candybar, or do I want it because I am feeling unwanted, unloved, lonely, etc.? And it really works. When I question whether the comfort food is supporting my health and wellbeing, and not just my mental easy button, I make better choices. Somewhere way back when I said "chocolate cures everything that ails you". That does not work for my current state of "not healthy, not well".

I don't expect this new direction to be easy. I do not expect it to be obstacle free. I do expect results. No one ever said life would be easy. No one ever said that which is worth having would be easy to get. So off I go to challenge myself, my coach, and my team.
