PH Balance? Huh?
Sunday, June 09, 2013
My weight seems to have jumped up two pound outs of no where. I know.. two pounds is probably just fluctuation...but its been a few days and my weight doesn't really fluctuate much. I haven't changed anything except my stress level and MORE exercise. This is so frustrating..why can't I ever see any results? I eat better than ever and exercise on a regular basis (longer than ever) with nothing to show for it.
I heard a little something about how your body's PH can affect your weight. Apparently, stress can affect your PH. If that is what caused these two pounds to show up, then I really need to look in to this because it seems like nothing else changes my weight. I swear, I could eat cheeseburgers on a daily basis and I'd lose weight but if I eat super healthy, I gain it! I don't understand my body at all.
I looked at the chart and I do eat a lot of acidic foods (coffee, beer, cheese, nuts, and beef being the main culprits) but I also eat apples and oranges every day and any greens I can get my hands on. Of course, the best thing to eat is leafy greens but I never seem to have those since they go bad in like 2 days. I am just not up to grocery shopping every two days on top of school and work. But if that's what it takes...
I am going to try and make green juice every day. I love the stuff but like I said, I just never have groceries! I can't wait to be out of college and on a steady work schedule with a paycheck. My stress is through the roof right now! Something has to change..I have to get on a schedule or something and find some sanity in this new life style. Being laid off has been a huge challenge. The plan was for me to go to school full time and the fiance would support me but we just couldn't afford it so now I work on my no-school days. I don't know how moms do this..mine did. Super heroes!
On top of all that, my hip is really bothering me again. I don't know what to do, I am not sure if I should just work through it or rest. Rest didn't seem to help in the past. Plus, it is hard to rest it when your school doesn't have stairs! (ok..and I refuse to take the elevator at the parking garage..haha). I went to a few doctors when I had health insurance but none of them took me seriously. I guess they thought I wanted pain pills (which I would have refused if they were offered because that wont fix the problem permanently). Now I don't have the option to keep harassing the doctors.
Sorry for the whiny post. I had to get it out! Now that I complained, I will try and find a solution. Then do homework *sigh*.
