Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi, I'm very happily married 44 yo SAHM with 3 little ones at home 5, 8 and 9, and two older children living on their own.
I love yoga and natural health. I use homemade and/or completely natural unscented cleaning and personal care products due to allergies and to be more environmental. I tried henna for my hair for a while but I have gone back to other colours as I do love to colour my hair different colours, now it's a very intense red.
When I last joined I tried to follow a paleothic and low carb diet, which excludes grain, beans, potatoes and dairy, but I haven't been able to let go of dairy or the occasional poutine or potato skins (Sundays only for those). And as for beans, I love coffee and extra dark chocolate as well as refried beans and mexican food. So now I am trying to eat as healthy as I can, fresh foods not processed and the "no white" diet at least because of my recent high blood sugar reading.
I'm so lucky to have a great DH who is 10 years younger and the best person I have ever known. However, I'm not so lucky to have bipolar 2 rapid cycling, and had to finally give up my job of 10 years after this last baby 5 years ago. I've tried using yoga, natural medicine, vitamins and cognitive and light therapies to fight my illness, but finally gave in and took some medication. However, the medication itself causes weight gain, and I have put on another 25 lb during my absence!
My goal is 135-140 lb. I have reached this twice since having kids, and I hope to do it again. Those other times once was due to exercise only the other was stress of divorce and not being able to eat!
I want to restore my spiritual, mental and physical health
I want repair the relationship with my older children
I hope to make some friends and reconnect with old friends
I need to find some more purpose in my life
