Silly bear

I have learned something about myself: I seem to think that being away from home is a reason to eat off plan. Its not. Its not even necessary. I'm not going on Safari to the jungle. There is a grocery store on every corner. I can always pack a jump rope and a yoga matt. Sheesh. Well. I had to go out of town unexpectedly for the past four days. I did indulge in some Asian Bakery treats emoticon . I don't know that I need to do that kind of thing anymore. I am giving myself a break from weigh ins until May 1. I'm still struggling with edema. emoticon

I have felt pressured in the past to eat in social situations, primarily with my Dad. Now, I have persuaded him that I don't have to do that anymore. I also need to persuade and remind myself of that. I will use a meditation to achieve that goal.

Eating plan:

Zig (aka focus) days:
4 300 calorie meals/day
Pre WO: 1 tbsp honey, juice of 1/2 a lemon, black pepper 1 1/2 c.
Meal 1: Oatmeal, coconut oil, hard boiled egg
Meal 2: Green Smoothie or juice
Meal 3: Green Smoothie or juice
Meal 4: Pressure cooker, sautee, or stir fry veggies + butter

Zag (2 days):
Zag- Eat off plan
followed by a IF day.

Workout plan:

AM: emoticon emoticon emoticon Cardio 45 to 90 min with at least 20 min. at higher intensity
PM: Every other night emoticon Yoga alternate with Tai Chi or Belly Dancing before bed emoticon

Fish emoticon oil: helps with satiety.
Gymnema Sylvestre: for my cellulitis infection
Billberrry: for my edema. Its an experiment. It works on tiny capilleries in the eye and the bladder, I thought it might work on my edema by repairing the return lymph system. Just a wild idea on my part.

    I do my worst eating away from home. The other day I ate a Whopper with mustard and pickle AND a fish sandwich too. Nightmare and, yes, I had edema.

    Perhaps a juice diet would help? Watch "Fat, Sick, Nearly Dead" by Joe Cross.

    I used nature's sunshine lymph detox for several months to help with edema. Depending on where your edema is there is Juniper oil sold at Young Living oils. They are supposed to be pure, undiluted. Parsley is a diuretic.
