Did I say I had a new habit? Maybe it's eating my Ancient Grains bread when I feel I really need it - otherwise sticking to my Perfect Health diet, which of course is a modified low carb diet for life! Get that last part? FOR LIFE!
Now that I know my condition of Ankylosing Spondylitis is a form of arthritis, I can follow what is recommended by the experts - one in particular on Dr. Oz's show last week:
Remove or avoid all gluten (good-bye my Ancient Grains bread!)
No dairy (but I think yogurt is okay)
No refined or processed foods
No alcohol (not a problem - rarely drink anyway)
No night shades (tomatoes/chilli, peppers - eegad - I've been eating those nearly every day)
No NSaid drugs or antacids (not a problem)
Have to replace those with good bacteria, fermented foods and probiotics.
You repair the lining of your intestines with:
Omega-3 flax seed, salmon, nuts and another thing I can't decipher my handwriting, looks like jutamine?
Sooo, what I have done is run out and bought some Krill oil (I use softgel) that Dr. Oz recommends and almost instantly I felt a change!!! I've never had such an immediate response from anything in my life that I've eaten. Wow! No wonder he raves about it.
Will that "new habit" of mine stay or will I throw it out the window ? Let's see how today goes first. One step at a time..... I know my fellow low-carbers here on Spark are saying "Get rid of it NOW!" (for those who didn't read yesterday's blog, that's the bread I am so addicted to)
Please add any further info. you have.
P.S. Would you believe an ad for Krill oil appeared on the top of my page?

That is Deepak Chopra's meditation for today. . .
and here is the rest of what he has to say that I find so important because we have a tendency, or I do, to compare how we are doing weightwise with others on Spark. This will free you!
"Today we will consider what success is and where it is found. It's common sometimes to measure our success or fulfillment by comparing ourselves to others. This is called object-referral, looking outside for validation.
"It is also common to overlook the opportunities for success that exist in our setbacks or failures.
"Through meditation we learn that everything we want, need and desire is already within us and that the seeds of success are within every perceived setback. Self-referral, looking within, is where true fulfillment resides."

Here I am, with a clean slate - yup! I deleted all my old blogs, my accomplishments, etc. and am starting over. . .
I'm no longer the "old" me - this is the brand new me and I'm ready for action.
Joined the 5% Fall Challenge Team and I have my work cut out for me. I'm to lose 11.4 lbs. by Nov. 17. Doable. But I have to do the work!
There are so many motivators - revenge, marriage, vanity, you name it.
But the only one that keeps you going and on track is YOURSELF. You start to build self-confidence with consistency and as you see improvement, you start to like yourself even more!
It takes discipline and determination, but we all have that - we just have to connect to our inner power each time we wobble.
My mother's advice was the best. Just don't spend time thinking about it - GET DOWN AND DO IT. It's an automatic response that becomes easier with practice.
