Tempus Fugit

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Ok, so I logged on today, and was notified (in that nice, but strangely reprimanding way that Spark has) that it has been 54 days since my last log on...SERIOUSLY?? Where does the time go?? I was doing SO well, too! I guess that means that I had better get my rear in gear and start making myself accountable again.
The whole reason that I logged in today, is that I have a doctor's appointment in 22 days, and my weight needs to be where it was last year at the VERY least. While this may sound strange, it's just something that I feel needs to be accomplished. Not to mention that I also have a 5k that same week, and I haven't been to the gym in 3 weeks! UGH!!
This whole reason that I joined Spark was that i was gaining weight at a rapid pace with out any change to diet and exercise. I'm afraid that something is seriously wrong. So, in order to figure out what's going on, I scheduled the doctor's appointment. Hopefully, something will come of it, and not just the response "it's your age, dear..." because this ISN'T normal.
So, step one, vegan, mostly raw diet. It turns out that I have food sensitivities that i wasn't aware of; and since I LOVE cheese and beef, this is going to be an interesting transition....
Step two, 5 days a week in the gym, no more than 45 minutes a day. Doable, right?
Step three...and the hardest alcohol for 60 days. WAHHH!!! No more wine!!!
I can do this...

    Good luck! I recently did the alcohol thing also! I'm pretty sure that was the hardest of everything I've ever tried!

    Thanks Jill! It's been a little crazy trying to figure out what's wrong with this body of mine...I'm hoping that it won't just fall apart on me one day! :o)
    I really think that the human body has this amazing ability to heal itself...if given the proper nutrition. While not a food freak, I have a strong suspicion that the modern diet hinders more than helps the human condition. I've been doing a lot of research on this lately. Reading Michael Polan (In Defense of Food) and watching multiple documentaries on the Agro-Industrial complex. It's just a little scary to discover that BIG BUSINESS drives so much of what we put into our bodies for fuel. And all of this coming from a Texas girl who loves her some beef! emoticon

    After your doc's appointment, it might help to see a registered dietitian, too. They can help identify food intolerances and such, and make sure you get all the right nutrients in the right proportions while eliminating those foods. Also, most doctors get 0-1 semester of nutrition education in their entire education/training, so registered dietitians are who to go to for that.
