New book (to me)

Thursday, October 30, 2014

I picked up a copy of Leslie Sansone's book Walk Away the Pounds hard bound 6 week program used at the library for $1.50 I love a good bargain emoticon

I am down a pound, yippee.

My brother is making progress. He is down 20 lbs. My mom is also down 27 lbs. Everybody is working together to be supportive emoticon

The temperatures rising, she certainly

Can, can! emoticon

Ok, enough show tunes. emoticon

I have been doing well until this week. I ate something which didn't agree with me ( veggie popchips.) and now my insides are all tore up and my candida rash came back. Gah! emoticon

So, back to my anti candida regime:

2 showers per day and sleep nude ( for the rash) using colloidal silver soap and nystatin topically

Cardio emoticon 5x per week, 4x before breakfast emoticon
Yoga 2 to 3 x per week emoticon
1 ckt emoticon per week ( after breakfast)


3x per day: olive leaf, garlic oil, and gymnema sylvestre, after my meals rinse with hydrogen peroxide

1 x per day before bed: triphala, probiotics with plain yogurt, then brush teeth.

No yeast
Fruit 1 x per day like emoticon berries or banana ( doesn't seem to be a problem)
Starch 2x per day
Fat at least 60 grams per day
Protein from emoticon meat 3 x per week, from vegetarian emoticon sources 4 x per week.
Vegetables emoticon at least 2 x per day and unlimited
Drink emoticon broth everyday for at least a week to support my gut

Count calories emoticon
Cook emoticon home made meals at least 4 days per week, and always 2 of my 3 meals per day,

I had a very hard physical therapy session this week and I am also experiencing herxheimer emoticon from that, so I may take a milk thistle and charcoal tablet today just to get that out of my system.

    I am having some stomach/intestinal issues too. They are my biggest challenge. I have had life long problems with them.

It has been very challenging

Thursday, August 07, 2014

I was only able to do one workout of Jillian's body revolution, I turned out that I was not as fit as I remembered. emoticon

I have been struggling with a skin infection problem. It seems to be tied to an overgrowth of Candida perhaps. What this means is that my insulin resistance has reared its ugly emoticon little head, and I need to ratchet down the emoticon calories, the emoticon carbs, and increase the cardio. It's kind of hard to do when you have an infection on the inside of your leg. So painful. I am taking olive oil, garlic emoticon oil capsules, triphala, and gymnema. That should help cut down my sugar and fungal population.

I bought myself four new DVDs from the 10 minutes solution series. Including the yoga emoticon for beginners, that blasting Latin emoticon dance mix, Boot emoticon Camp, and rapid results emoticon fat burner. I like the 10 minutes solution series because I can tailor it to how much energy I think I have. Sometimes I can only do 10 minutes and sometimes I can do an hour. I will save the Jillian Michaels body revolution for later.

My brother is doing very well with his diabetes diagnosis. He is weighing emoticon himself every day. He is checking his blood sugar with the blood sugar monitor. He is watching what he eats. He is still trying to find things to eat that taste good to him but he is what's called a super taster so unless it's super sweet, super sugary, and super fatty he thinks it tastes terrible. His super taster mouth will probably get him killed. He is over 150 pounds overweight.

    I am in a similar place. I need to cut back on calories and carbs and up the exercise. My tummy is too big.

I hope you get rid of your skin infection soon.

I have a new exercise thing - Zumba Gold. I have not tried it yet.

I hope your brother does well with his diabetes. Maybe he can reverse it.

body revolution

Monday, July 21, 2014

I am starting Jillian Michaels' body revolution this morning. She also includes a balanced diet that has focus on healthy fats emoticon and proteins. emoticon So I'm going to give it a whirl. Today we start with weight training for 30 minutes. emoticon The program covers 90 days. I may add some of my other cardio workouts to fill it out. Her workouts are only 30 minutes each. But, as my mother reminds me, I need to ease back into this. I had a terrible fall several weeks ago and my left hand is not entirely perfect yet. However my sprained ankle is completely healed now emoticon

    That must have been quite some fall!!! I hope you are fully recovered now and that the new program and plan works for you. I'm always afraid to try anything by Jillian. LOL. 30 minutes of her would do me in.

    Your mother is right (as they always are!) ease back in and don't re-injure yourself or get discouraged

Make Today the Greatest Day of Your Life

I forgot that triscuits were fattening

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Dang it. emoticon

2 pound penalty. emoticon

I hate it when I make mistakes like that. emoticon

This is so frustrating, because I have just really been very good about watching my portion size all week. But one mistake, can lead to a couple of pounds gained. emoticon
