Positive Changes

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I've incorporated dietary changes that have improved my healthy regimen: PRUNES! They are a healthy alternative and help keep me regular, LOL I try to eat one GRAPEFRUIT a day, I notice an improvement in my skin tone when I do. Two tablespoons of COCONUT OIL per day. It increased thermogenesis and has improved weight loss. I limit wine to two glasses occasionally, like when eating out with friends and have substituted carbonated water or club soda with lime to drink with dinner. I have a BANANA every morning for breakfast. I have added climbing the stairs of the nearby lighthouse for added cardio, my reward is the beautiful view when I get to the top and I am meeting other lady friends who do the same :)

    Ooh, I've been to the St Augustine Lighthouse, way back in 2002. Wish I had known you then...we could have walked those stairs together!

    Thanks for sharing all the dietary changes. I think I'm going get some coconut oil and get back to eating grapefruit. I also like prunes and bananas too, of course!

    You're doing great...keep it going!

    I had this background for a while- isn't it beautiful? How do you incorporate the coconut oil? Do you cook with it or add it to food?? I have heard of someone else doing this. I have aggravating skin problems - is it the grapefruit that helps with that? Will have to try it! Would love to live near a lighthouse- I have never been to one! Have a great day!

    I would be so dizzy by the time I reached the top of those stairs!!! But I'm sure the view is very worth it. Good for you!! Go, Jan!! How are your eyes???
