So - another month has gone by...

Sunday, November 30, 2014

and I gained weight again I'm sure. Hopefully the scale will be slightly nice to me tomorrow but I doubt it. I didn't eat well for the past few days.

December is already looking to be a bit of a crazy month but hopefully I will still be able to make great strides. I joined a simple challenge that is just dancing 10 min per day and drinking my water goal daily. I think I can handle both of those. I have a bunch of silly stuff and not so silly stuff to do around the house but I have to find the motivation to do that. I have been working so much lately that doing simple chores just do not hold my attention for very long before the couch calls my name.

I found out that I need to go gluten free for a minimum of 90 days to determine if that is the cause of my stomach issues - it is going to be much harder than I thought. During December I am planning on using as much up of the pantry as possible and giving away any unopened items that remain after Christmas. We have a stocked pantry and freezer. If we stay focused on making meals from that we can use most of it up during the month. The key is to not get lazy and just pick up dinner.

Today I plan to make our dinner plan for the week, clean out the garage, and set some goals for December.

Have a healthy Sunday!

    WTG joining a challenge, that 10 minute challenge a day should keep you moving.

Lentil Chili

Sunday, November 02, 2014

I made this recipe for a potluck. I thought it came out pretty good. I added a can of original rotel and 3/4 of a medium green pepper chopped.

    What is rotel? REALLY LOTS of GREAT looking soup recipes on that sight wow! Which one did you make? I'm a squash person and thought that the Creamy Red Curry Coconut Butternut Squash Soup & the Greek Lentil Soup sounded REALLY good.

Manic Monday

Monday, October 20, 2014

I seriously need to find my focus again. One of the hardest things right now though is figuring out what is causing an almost daily sour stomach. It doesn't matter what I eat, I wake up with horrible indigestion. I thought it was the new GERD medicine I was on but now that I have gone off of it for more than just 3 days, I still have the problem. I don't understand at all. It seems worse when I eat fresh veggies too which is not good. I have to schedule an endoscopy. I was hoping to put it off until January so that we didn't have to pay the insurance deductible this year but no such luck.

Goals for today -

emoticon Track everything and journal any stomach symptoms emoticon
emoticon 12+ glasses of water today emoticon
emoticon Go for at least 1 walk today emoticon
emoticon Prep dinner for tomorrow night emoticon
emoticon Post in the Rocktober challenge threads emoticon

    Sure hope the endoscopy can shed so light to the root of the problem.
