Day 185 in my researching my way to a healthier me for meeting Mickey in the Magic Kingdom (8 months and 4 days to go!)
My plan for today was to start reading Mayo Clinic Diabetes Diet. (OK, nobody panic. I am not diabetic; however, I am pre-diabetic, so the time for action is NOW.) The book was delivered to my work place yesterday. I began reading it as I ate my lunch. I made it through two chapters while I ate. In my Day 182 blog, I listed the 5 habits this diet wants you to add:
- Eat a healthy breakfast.
- Eat vegetables and fruits.
- Eat whole grains.
- Eat healthy fats.
- Move! 30 minutes or more every day.
It sounds so sensible. And what I like about it, so far, is that it doesn’t claim to be a quick fix. It promises to be a lifestyle change, a way to live the rest of your life in a healthier manner.
I dig it because I want to be well on my way to a healthier me when I shake Mickey’s hand at the Magic Kingdom in October. Maybe he’ll even give me a hug! Gosh, I LOVE Walt Disney World!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
BTW: I do not have unrealistic expectations. I just want to be moving in a direction that I can be happy about when I get to Florida. Then after the trip, I’ll pick another goal and continue this journey. AND more about this diet to come. 🙂
