Trial and Error!

Sunday, March 31, 2013

We finally have our Spring weather. Gorgeous blue skies sunshine and warmer temperatures. Just came back from an hour at the gym and then Walt and I went for a walk to and from Fields for a few items we'd forgotten to get yesterday.
And now that the weather is finally starting to think it's Spring and the snow is melting my walking road is clearing up! I can't wait to get out there again.

I had tried something since losing the 110 pounds. I lost them on eating 90% fruits and vegetables, complex carbs, getting my protein etc from my G-BOMBS and 10% dairy and meats
For the past month I tried changing it up and doing 80/20%
Found it it doesn't work for me I started feeling bloated, heavy, sluggish and moody again. So, back to 90/10 it is. Started back today

I also bought myself my first Organic Hemp Protein to put in my morning fruit and fibre smoothie; blueberry pomegranate flavor
I also found a real good mix of organic fruit and nuts mixed with dried cranberries, and spicy flavored wasa peas.
So now when I have my salad for lunch I'll throw my 1 ounce into it.
I've done something else as well. I found myself an organic energy tablet pomegranate flavor You dissolve it in your glass of water up to three times a day. I do it twice a day. First thing in the morning and about mid afternoon.
When I was at home even as active as I am I find that 3 o'clock is when I find my energy levels depleted. So now instead of taking a rest and end up nodding of in my chair for a power nap I just dissolve one of these in a 12 ounce glass of water and away I go again. Makes all the difference.

    What is a G-BOMB? I'm not anywhere near the point where I can analyze what works best for me, however, I'm collecting information like yours as ideas for when I get to that point.

  Interesting! What is a G-BOMB? I haven't used hemp seeds in a while - I've been using chia- which have a similar nutritional profile but fewer calories - but I understand Hemp has a lot more omega-3s (probably the reason for the calories). I make a "gel" of the chia seeds in a 1:9 ratio and add it to my smoothies, now I see it in pouches that you can take for quick energy while exercising too. Good lessoons from the files of someone who has been so successful at losing weight. Thanks!
