Net Carbs- 100
Today is the first day I have actually stayed within my fat gram range. I had one left!! I almost made it to my protein goal, and I stayed within my carb goal. I had over 20 g of fiber. I still need to increase that. I neglected my water yesterday. I could not drink it early in the morning because of church, but I could have had it in the afternoon. So, I continue to see where I need to give more attention.
Recently I have spoken to so many of my friends with elderly mothers. Of course they are elderly, since I am a senior citizen. Oh my gosh... I still can't believe that... when do you feel like you are a senior citizen? So many of our mothers are now in their 80s, and they are having many health issues. I know that is to be expected because the average lifespan of a female in this country is 85. But what can be done to live a life that is healthy up until that time? My main thought is to not be sedentery.. and also to not be obese!! Of course not smoking is just understood. And I could go further to say cut back on sugar so you don't become a diabetic. I realize that there is no way to prevent getting older, but how we fair in our old age can be changed by our choices. And I feel the biggest battle of all of this is in the mind!! If I can continue to look toward the goal and not right in front of me of what I want to do in the short range, I can succeed... but I will tell you... it is definitely a life of discipline... I am not giving up.. I am going forward!!
