Kiddos back to school soon and hopefully I will be able to get revived soon. Awaiting our LUMO lifts in the mail, this new device is to track more than activity, also posture. Jim and I are looking forward to it, he calls it his new Star Trek communicator. Having our new little foster son has really taken a lot more out of me than I expected. Prayers please, I'm feeling pretty drained.

New Kiddo & Knee soreness

Monday, August 11, 2014

Hello Friendlies;
Been off the SP board for almost a month while acclimating in a new 2 year old foster son. And was resting my left knee. Tried to double up workouts and it bit me in the left knee. Ouch. Knee is better, kiddo is settling in. MAJOR life changer. Cute, but demanding.

Also got a bit discouraged as activity tracker is not calibrating right emoticon

    Blessings on you for fostering a child. More people need to do that.

Hope your knee gets better!!

Riding with my Daughter today

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Went horse back riding with our daughter today. Fun to see her learning to ride and enjoying it. She's doing so well at the trot, and learning to work with the horse, but slightly panicked when the horse canters. We worked through it and she was doing fabulous towards the end of our 6 mile ride. LOVE these horses, they are so beautiful and just great horses. So blessed.

Logging on start page has helped me notice something I hadn't thought to be true for me- my mood is certainly equal to the amount of sleep the previous night. Hmm.... Which comes first though? The bad mood or the sleep? For me I think that I sleep less when in a negative frame of mind... so I think that has something to do with it.... And negative mood before bed honestly sometimes means sugar before bed---- which could be the reason for the bad sleep, as I remember reading something on this and took these notes on it:

Sugar = Insulin
insulin surges = no weight loss

Take Vit D and Glutathione (oops! out of the Glutathione for a long time)

*then I had written this down* Sweets before bed= 3 am wake ups
because blood sugar crashes = Adrenal Rush emoticon

Also of note, and might as well write it down here to have it save elsewhere:

Insulin Resistance-->must be lowered to help thyroid

* cells refuse entry of insulin- sugar stays in blood & damages walls & brain

--Body must get glucose (sugar sugar) out of the blood so it makes it into triglycerides---
(I have high triglycerides) AND Triglycerides become FAT. ( I have that too, loads of it) This process demands loads of energy & you (I) become tired/sleepy after eating foods that spike blood sugars.

Sugar ahhh honey honey... Sorry... that song is stuck in my mind at the moment..... emoticon

Occasional fasting= burning fat= better ph
Drink lemon water, and tea with ((real)) maple syrup.

Spearmint tea reduces androgens. (helps out a gal fighting off PCOS)


Hard to take a day off of C25k

emoticon Am loving the work out and somedays it is hard to take that day off of the workout, though I understand the logic to take a day to repair
