can't a girl just get a muffin around here?

I recently found out that my bad cholesterol is high and my good cholesterol is low, I couldn't just get stuck with one predicament now could I?
So the nurse practitioner is going on and on about how I need to exercise more and eat less of everything that comes in the color white, needless to say I was screaming NOOOOOOOO.... inside, wonder if she heard me?
If we know each other even remotely well then you know that these are two things I struggle with in a BIG way.
#1 ~ I hate, and I mean really hate, to exercise! If someone even mentions the word comical scenes start to play over and over in my mind of yours truly, running screaming in the other direction, and I'm running barefoot because I don't own a pair of running shoes... or any other kind of shoes that are meant for physical activity. *sigh...
#2 ~ I rarely eat anything other than white stuff. This means potatoes, rice, tortillas, pasta, and anything bread. Don't get me wrong, I throw a few fruits and veggies in too, but man, carbs are my best friend! There is absolutely nothing better in this world than a big ol' plate of chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread, and a piece of pie for dessert.
So now of course it's all I think about since getting the dreaded news, all I can do is sit and watch Paula Deen and salivate over the yummy things she makes, and eats, on a daily basis. I wonder if she has problems with cholesterol...

I love me some Paula Deen.

I also do not like to exercise, but make myself do it because I feel guilty if I don't. The guilt outweighs the "don't wants" about 50% of the time.

I don't feel bad for you if you can eat all that YUMMY stuff and NOT have to exercise! SO NOT FAIR...

Okay, I do feel bad for you! :)

I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A MUFFIN, BUT TWO YEARS AGO I HAD TO GIVE UP FLOUR BUT I CAN STILL EAT THE OTHER WHITE STUFF SUGAR, TEND TO EAT SUGAR MORE TEND TO CRAVE IT MORE SINCE GOING FLOUR FREE. I DO WORK OUT MORE FOR MENTAL HEALTH THAN ANYTHING ELSE AND SEEING HOW OLD AND FAST MY SISTERS ARE AGEING MAKES ME A LITTLE MORE MOTIVATED. HAVE LOVED GOING THROUGH YOUR BLOG ROLL LOT OF INTERESTING THINGS TO READ LOVE WHITE CROW WALKING.

Ugh.. you've got company in that news department... now the wedding is behind me, I can't say "when things settle down".... I'll do this or that better. I found myself telling myself, well... now I just need to wait till school starts up again... then I'll do this or that better, if I'm not careful, the next thing I'll be saying is "Welllll... once the holidays are behind us,..." I'll do this or that better. No more excuses is what I need to be telling myself! So.. ANY way, you keep up your trying to get things in order and I'll keep you company, 'K? ;)
