i have to be my own sunshine.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

lol lol lol
that is what i was doing after i was searching online for foods both high in fiber and vitamin d...
first answer, low on vitamin d, get lots of sunlight!!!
duhhhh....
i dont think i have seen any here in about a week, its been hotter than hades, but just dry over cast steamy humid heat.
no sun. and, im inside all day at least 4 days a week here when i work, so its not like i can go out and lay in the sun, maybe i can walk out on the deck for 10 minutes or so. i get what i can i guess.
so, i am still trying to tweak my diet so that i can get in my 25 of fiber
and my 120 of calcium, or more, and my 100 of vitamin d...and still stay within calorie range.
so far, lots of apples, which are still high in sugar and carbs, so, is it better to go over carbs or under other nutrients?
i pick low carbs, i can and am still taking high doses of vitamin d and fiber in the form of tablet or powder.
last vitamin d check was june, and it was 52
i will have it checked again in sept when i return to the doc....
so, i guess for now, i stick with lower carbs and keep taking supplements.
i have got to cut back on my dairy, i had really drastically increased it when i first broke my foot and in spite of taking 50,000 iu once a week and 5,000 iu daily of vitamin d
i still increased my calcium in the form of food.
so now is the time to get back, i had to go down the stairs to my car today, and these are pretty steep stairs, and coming back up, i was out of breath, first time that has happened to me in awhile.
and this is a three story house, so its up and down thru the day.
which is good, i need the added steps and cardio.
but i have noticed getting out of breath more easily...which means, its time to get back to more intense workouts, enough puttying around!!!
i have to find the time and the solitude...there is a gazelle and an eliptical here at work, so while my charges are sleeping, i am going to add what i can, even if its only a few minutes and up and down the stairs as much as i can handle.
you do what you can do right!!!
so everyone have a good day.

    Hello! I live in Nebraska, so i know the lack of sunshine sometimes! dont quote me, but i think that i have heard that all you need is 15 min a day.. so that is good, I have been thinking of getting a sunlamp for the winter. also on the calcium, dark leafy greens are a very good source of calcium and protein etc. dairy or animal protein in the calcium actually leaches the calcium from our bones. so if you can find a vegetarian supplement for vitamin for it, that would do your bones much better.
