1. WHITE VINEGAR - great for so many things!

I figure, maybe, if I post it here, I won't "forget"! Heh heh heh.

    LOL! I read somewhere that vinegar is a good disinfectant, so good to clean just about everything.

Glad we could help! emoticon

    Vinegar is great, thanks for the reminder, I need to get some too!
Use it for cleaning, rinsing my hair after a hot oil treatment, and in a pinch I can use it for deodorant!!

Talking about hormones

Friday, July 18, 2014

I thought I "knew everything" basic there was to know about what I needed, and needed to do, for my own health and fitness. I learned different!!

It's been some time since I "hit a wall." Everything I was reading, everyone who offered advice, had me thinking there was something I was doing "wrong," and which was why I was NOT losing weight, and, a year ago, actually started gaining (and gaining fat in 'un-typical' places- mid-section, etc.).

This was scary. It's STILL scary, but now, I'm hoping I do understand more, and that, under my doctor's supervision, what I'm doing now will get me back on the right track.

I'm just so stunned that no one was, and, still, so few are, TALKING intelligently about women (and probably men, too) and hormone changes over our life spans, and especially over 40 or 50. So many women I've spoken with have experienced even more issues than I have. But unexpected weight gain was more than enough for me. Really. Definitely, I do not have "all" the answers. I'm hoping I've found some answers that will work for me.

Going through this is still changing my life. Adjusting carbohydrates. Continuing to watch my food intake, and increasing my already pretty good consumption of high-nutrient foods and supplements/super foods, plus bringing back more cardio, strength training, and getting out and doing things, keeping moving, managing and leaving behind stress, and sleeping well. It hasn't been very long since I made some of these "adjustments." But I'm giving this some time, appreciating myself, and giving it my best. And I really, really wish the same for all the women who are on a similar journey! Hang in there, and cheers!

    Yeah, gone are the days when I could count on a four- pound loss during the time of month! Like Nell says, it gets harder and harder, and the kids don't understand.

Sounds like you're doing the best to cope: making sensible changes and giving them time to work (or not work).

We can do it!

    Remember when we were young and heard people telling us that weight is harder to lose after 40? And we scoffed. But guess what? They were right. And it is harder over 50 and over 60 (I assume harder still over 70, I'm not there yet). There is no diet or exercise in the world to turn a 65 year old body back into a 20 year old body. But it all works just the same, just a lot more slooowly.

    I remember hard wood floors from a previous house. I truly think you can count the cleaning as fitness minutes. Go for it, girl!
