This may be the first time in my life I was happy to receive this monthly biological process of mine. Normally, my cramps are horrendous the first day and I'm miserable all week. I did still have pain on day one, but my spirits have been quite high throughout this week. Perhaps the unintentional fast promoted ketone body production in my brain which allowed for improved receptiv... Fri, 4 Apr 2014 16:32:54 EST Fasting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5662824 Today is day two of a fast. I hadn't realized I was fasting until just now. The black dog is back. Wed, 2 Apr 2014 17:07:49 EST Health Insurance http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5653271 I tried to sign up for the mandatory health coverage thing again today. More tears. I can't afford any of the plans. If I can't afford the plans, how will I be able to afford the penalty for not signing up for the plans I couldn't afford to pay for in the first place? <BR> <BR> ::Big sad face:: <BR> <BR> I'm not due for a weigh in yet, but I'm hoping maybe the scale will give me a tiny glimmer of good news today. Fri, 21 Mar 2014 13:45:39 EST Crow pose http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5652724 For the past five days my face has been a perpetual snot fountain, but today it subsides. I've had to skimp on my yoga practice. The sinus infection left me rather weak, but I stuck to my vegan ova-lacto ketogenic (volk) diet. Volk means wolf in Russian. My ex taught me that, along with a whole lot of reasons why I shouldn't trust people. Se la vie. <BR> <BR> Tonight I'll partake in a late solo practice and really focus on crow pose. I was able to hit and hold it from the get go, but... Thu, 20 Mar 2014 21:22:16 EST Ketosis http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5650924 Thrusday, March 20th 2014 marks two months of an ova-lacto-vegan-keto diet for me. The changes I feel are inspiring. So far, I've lost 18 pounds which puts me ahead of my weight loss schedule by 10 days. Currently I weigh 142 pounds and my goal is to hit 111 pounds by August 1st 2014. I will not give up. Once I hit 120 pounds, I will weigh less than I have since high school. I plan to celebrate that day as a mile marker achievement in my life. This will be the year I finally hit that n... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 16:45:27 EST
