Today's Kick in the Butt

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Well, here we go again. The Lazy-Boy has reached up and grabbed my butt. Now it's time to kick it right out of this chair and get my run in. Before it get's too hot out to do it.



Enough sitting here wishing the fat off my a$$. Sorry for the graphic language, but it's a graphic image I need to see. Wishing it won't make it so. Action will. Are you worth the 30min of effort it takes? Or not???



You can reach your goal by this fall, BUT ONLY IF YOU PUT THE EFFORT IN NOW. TODAY. Putting it off until tomorrow will only see you still here and struggling in a year. I know it. You know it. So what's the problem???



Okay, so I wasn't lazy yesterday. I made myself proud yesterday. But yesterday is done. It has no bearing on the outcome of today. If I don't get up and give 'er today, it will completely defeat and waste all I worked for yesterday.

The only way hard work pays off is when you build on it. If you stall out or stop, it is all wasted. It get's you no where. It only gets you to your goals if you KEEP GOING!



Think about it. I can either spend this next hour on my butt watching it expand. Or I can get dressed, get out there, and make myself proud. Work for the body I want. Heck, work for the body everyone wants.



*******UPDATE**************
It's 11 am and I'm done my run for today. C25K Week1Day2. Wicked hot again today 26C(79F) - feels like 33C(91F). Almost too hot to run today. I am actually dripping with sweat.

2.39miles in 33min. Avg hr - 142.

    I especially love "The Junk Food You've Wanted For An Hour vs. The Body You've Wanted For Your Entire Life."

Wow, that quote really drives it home!!!

Day 20 of my Cleansing Diet

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I'm almost there. Wow. I honestly didn't think I would ever make it, especially once I started having withdrawal and nightmares like I was having. But I can see the beginning of the next phase. I'm kind of excited to start it too.

Last night I had a night filled with strange dreams again. Could have been stress. Could have been the heat - it's wicked warm here yesterday. Guess it doesn't really matter why. It just is.

I am feeling stronger. I spent most of yesterday hungry though. I can't keep doing this long term. It won't last. I don't do hunger on a regular basis.

I bought canning supplies yesterday. I am getting ready to start making my own tomato sauces, ketchup, BBQ sauce, etc. Then later in the season, I will be canning fruit too.

Anyhow, as for today, I'm going to stay on the cleansing diet, run, and plan a little more about the re-introduction phase. What order am I doing to introduce the foods? When? I am also going to be looking into planing exactly what I'll be eating with each food, so I can see if I need to break it down further based on possible combination foods.

Foods to Test

Monday, June 25, 2012

I have done it. I've put together a list of the foods I have removed from my diet and am looking into re-introducing.

Foods to Re-Introduce:

Beef
cold cuts
pork
sausage

eggs
egg substitutes

milk
cheese
cottage cheese
yogurt - greek
yogurt - regular
butter
shortening
non-dairy creamers

oranges
strawberries
bananas
corn

salad dressings
spreads
peanuts
honey
maple syrup

corn syrup
ice cream
sugar
brown sugar


I really do not know if I'm going to re-introduce all of them. Honestly, the bottom 4 - especially the bottom 3 - are ones I'm not sure I ever want back.

As for dairy, I'll test it, but I think I'm likely to keep it very limited as to how often I eat it. I'll try to limit it to once a week. I considered not re-introducing dairy and cheese, but I can't see it as being realistic. I love cheese too much. I don't do processed cheeses anyway, so that's one good thing. But I love cheese melted on my gluten free pasta, with a little pasta sauce.

Oh, as for pasta sauces, ketchup, BBQ sauces, etc, I will be making my own from now on. There is citric acid added to all of them. I found out this past week why I can't have citric acid, especially the commercially prepared citric acid. In fact, it could very well have been what has been making me sick all along.

I am hoping cottage cheese is okay - I miss cottage cheese with fruit mixed in. That being said, I'll have to mix my own fruit mixes to add into it.

I am wondering if yogurt is okay for me. I will be testing greek yogurt, an regular yogurt separately. I have avoided regular yogurt for a couple of years. Mind you, I'm pretty sure there are sugars added to the flavored ones, so it might not be an issue for me anyway. I will check plain greek yogurt. and plain yogurt too.

Guess I've got to get online and look for recipes to can fruit and look into making some fruit sauces as well.

So much to consider. Wow.

So even though I have a list, it still needs lots of work. And I also have to organize when I'm going to test what foods.

    If by cold cuts you mean bologna, salami, and other commercial sandwich items, you might reconsider them. Most of them are loaded with sodium, even the sliced turkey breast...

Good luck on finding what you can eat.

    If you find that the yogurt contains citric acid, you can easily make your own - I do it all the time .

Here is the link to the blog I learned to make it from
http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/m
aking-homemade-yogurt

Her recipe has worked well for me. I do use a heating pad, and my husband and I made a "pot cozy" made out of insulated cardboard to keep the temp up. I also use cheese cloth to strain mine- I find it works fine, and is cheaper then buying the bullion strainer like she uses.

Best wishes on you food reintroduction journey!

    I would look closely at the yogurt ingredients - the kind I buy has citric acid listed as an ingredient and I would guess most of the other brands (Greek and regular) do as well. Yogurt is supposed to be easy to make yourself. I've never tried to, but my understanding is that it's not terribly difficult. Of course that's assuming that you decide to reintroduce dairy as a regular part of your diet.

It sounds like you've got a long list of items to try. I don't envy you. Is that the order you'll try them in?
