Did not sleep enough and did not sleep well.
Had to go to work early, and had to stay in late.
Did not have time for walking, running or yoga.
Forgot to switch on my blue therapy lamp during breakfast.

My back is good, full range of motion, no pain, just very minor discomfort in the past few days - I call it normal, and go out for a short run in the snow.
I know yoga and walking is not good for all types of back pain, but they did help mine.... Read more
Today is day 5 of mild back pain.
I haven't run since it started, but I do walk 45 minutes and do a 30-minute yoga workout every morning: a nice combination starting with lying poses, than sitting, hands-and-knees and sun salutations from easy... Read more
Yesterday I worked from home, in return for an extra long work day on Thursday, 8 hours sitting + 6 hours driving.
So I had time for a morning 7K hill run, and I was glad to see that the freezing rain did not cause any damage in the forest, ot... Read more
On Sunday I did my usual hill run. Surface was mix of smooth ice, packed snow, slush and water - I expected this and had my water proof goretex shoes and yaktrax snow grips on, so my run was safe and pleasant, and my feet warm and dry.

I'm back to work as usual.
Weight is back at center: I was at lower end before Christmas, then up 4-5 pounds despite eating pretty well and exercising more than usual. Since returning to normal eating I see downward trend, without need to chan... Read more

So, last night after I finished my dinner my... Read more
I watched the 3 Bright Line Eating videos, and they make perfect sense to me.
Surely I will not take the pricey boot camp, but the videos were great.
My eating habits are already in good compliance with what dr. Pierce Thompson suggests, reg... Read more

This was the most pleasant and peaceful Christmas for me ever.
My husband purchased and wrapped the presents for kids and his mom.
Kids baked 2 of the 3 cookies all by themselves.
This did not leave much room for stress for me : )

Second week was great.
I got used to larger meals, to feeling fuller after and feeling emptier before meals.
Not much hunger, the little I have is usually a few minutes before breakfast.
After week 1 I saw a downward trend and low weigh... Read more
