I am gearing back from a major hormonal detour. Iím back on the main road and realized I have to learn how to deal with the hormonal issues that occur once a month for me. This time my cravings were extreme but I put two and two together and found that if I drink diet drinks I grave more sweets so these to items and my hormones do not mix. I was constantly hungry and man I just couldnít deal with it! I have returned to my water full time. I have made it pretty. I call it spa water I got a wonderful water craf and filled it with ice and sliced key limes and filled it up with water, it hold a liter of water and figure two of these will be good 3 would be best. I drank my water this weekend no problem, I will use fruits like strawberries, pineapple, key limes, oranges slices, blueberries, mango, watermelon and or cantaloupe. You just add a few chunk of fruit and the ice and water and it gets the essence of the fruit. When I went away to my retreat earlier this month the hotel we were at did this and it was awesome tasting. So I am doing it for myself because I am worth it!!!!
I have also incorporated my exercise to 4 times a week and gradually doing more. I Ďm enrolling in a fun fitness class that uses dance and kickboxing I will do that 3 x a week; water aerobics twice a week and of course my Richards Simmons DVD at least a day or two week! Iím enjoying dancing and that is what Iím working at. I am finding the things I love to do vs. having a feeling of having to do. The girls and I will be going dancing on Friday, May 6, 2011ósome fun oldies music, twisting and elvising ; > )!
