I'm not into fad diets, but I need to do something!
Well, It has been almost a year of feeling lousy: Joint pain, fatigue, foggy-mind, recent development of quite extreme lactose intolerance, and (did I mention?) fatigue.
I don't know if I officially need to eat a gluten-free diet, but after o... Read more
Update on detox
I gained 8 pounds this week.
I know the detox wasn't to lose weight. It was to increase health, but I was still excited to be nearing goals. Grrr. I gained it all back this week (and then some). Grrr.
I didn't track ... Read more
This year's fitness goal
I decided on this year's fitness goal.
My two-year ago pie-in-the-sky goal: Jog Collinsville Hill. Check.
Last year's that'll-never-happen goal: Station-11 on the fitness trail. Half check due to injury ... Read more
Thoughts on Dr. Oz Detox-Day 3
Well, I made it through. That last day was the easiest. I had more energy and actually forgot I was on it for most of the day. By dinner though, I really wanted to eat solid food.
Was it worth it? Sure.
Did it vastly improve my health... Read more
Thoughts on Dr. Oz Detox-Day 2
Yesterday was Day 2. It was easier then Day 1.
I believe that I will do this again in a few months b/c I feel really good. Realistically, that may be due to being on vacation or b/c I slept/relaxed most of yesterday, but I have lost 6 poun... Read more
Thoughts on Dr. Oz Detox-Day 1
My thoughts on each meal:
Breakfast is yummy and not unlike a breakfast I would've enjoyed before I was trying to eat fewer carbs. I don't like meat, so this is a refreshing change from eggs. The only part I could do without is the flaxse... Read more
Starting Dr. Oz detox
I have been considering the benefits of a detox diet for a while. After researching many, I have decided to try Dr.Oz 3-day detox.
Honestly, I am skeptical. The foods aren't that different from what I always eat. If nothing else, it will... Read more
I went for a jog today.
Do you ever have those days where you feel ugly, lonely, fat, exhausted, yadda, yadda? Yeah.
I motivated myself enough to go into my basement to carry up stuff for my students to make PVC Greenhouses on Monda... Read more
Jogging in the snow? Dr. Oz detox?
Last summer, I decided that if I felt like jogging then I should harness the moment and do it.
I felt like jogging yesterday.
Problem: I live in very northern NY. We got 2 feet of snow on Wednesday, the first day of Spring. Despite th... Read more
Our challenge this week is to look at breakfast recipes, but we all know how that goes. Who can limit themselves to looking at one recipe?
I am trying two new things this week.
First, I am actually cooking. That means I need to be ... Read more
6) Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!
I seem to be blogging about the same topic. Weird feeling of dizzy/light-headedness. I feel like I may be dwelling on it. Shaky. Tired? Beyond tired? It's hard to describe.
My doctor checked my sugar, iron, thyroid, etc. All were nor... Read more
5) What can you improve upon?
That is an easy question. I decided today that I could improve on my sleep habits. I am tired. When I get home from school, if I sit down, I lay down. If I lay down I sleep. The only way I wake up for church meetings or other nightly gather... Read more
4.) How are you doing day by day?
Honestly, not great today. It was a hectic day at school, in fact, I am writing this as I wait for the Board Meeting to start. Yup. Still at school. 6:30am through going on 7pm.... Who said teachers were 9-3? I love my job though.
I f... Read more
3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track?
I'm participating in the Winter Challenge! I am a little surprised how encouraging a virtual competition can be to me. I simple don't want to let the Doggies down, so I get off my couch and exercise.
Why am I not motivated simply for my... Read more
2) How will you do that (develop a new habit)?
I am tempted to write bloggity blog blog and be done with it. Get the points and mve on, but I know that would be cheating.
I have crammed a lot into today. Opened the church cafe, church (amazingly awesome), then home to grade papers, pa... Read more
