Time to Change

So I went for a physical just because I have insurance for a while and haven't bothered to use it. Well I found out I am insulin resistant. When you eat sugar your body produces insulin to break it down. Once the sugars are broken down some is absorbed into you muscle. Well my body produces insulin and breaks down the sugar but my muscles are like "HELL NO WE WON'T GO!!" So the sugar sits in my blood stream and the then my body produces more insulin. So that being said I am basically a pre-diabetic. My dad had diabetes and so did my grandma so I am not surprised. I just have to change everything about my diet. I have to start eating like a diabetic and working out regularly and I should be fine. It is ssooooooo hard! I haven't really worked out since sports in high school! I just need to stop making excuses and pray that I will find some enjoyment in working out. We shall see hoe this goes. As far as eating I have been really good. In the last couple of weeks I have completely changed my eating habits and have learned a lot about what I should and shouldn't eat. The hard part is because my muscles do not absorb all the sugar they should I grave it ALL the time. I am not thrilled about this change but it is only gonna benefit me so I can't complain.

Families are Forever

Ethan and I got some difficult news recently and I couldn't help but be sad. I ask him if he regretted marrying me. I wanted to know if I was worth all the death and hard times we have faced and will have to face. His answer, "Sarah you are not the love of my life..... you are the love of my forever and that is whats worth it, forever with you." I didn't know I could love him more every day but I do.
