Away soooo long!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I've been popping in, reading friends blogs and such, but haven't really had the time or energy to be here on a regular basis. So I thought I would throw down a "stream of consciousness" blog and at least let you know I'm still here!

What I have taken in hand is to sort out a global picture of my health, and I went to a naturopath for that. All because I've been having issues with meds, and the oncologist says "oh, I know nothing about side effects". GRRRR.

So I went to a naturopath, and she took my history from babyhood. She says my body just hasn't recovered from its many traumas, and that I likely have tiny fissures in my intestinal tract that allows stuff to get into my body that normally shouldn't. So elimination diet it was.

Upon reintroductions, I've been reacting - strongly - to gluten, cow's milk and yeast. What a huge difference this has made. AND I've discovered that onions and garlic give me migraines. Who knew!?! So some migraines gone, bloating and pain gone.

So things are getting on the right track food-wise. Now I have to bear down and really start tracking calories and nutritional values again. I continue to try to get to the gym with my trainer 3 times per week, but it has been mostly twice per week. Despite that, I have seen a huge difference in my strength and stamina, and DH and I have recently decided that I'll continue with my trainer at least until the end of March.

So that's a snapshot of me today. How are YOU doing???

    Good snapshot of where you are! DH is back from China and I made him come out and do the last yard cleanup outside today. Brrrr! But a good workout. Moving canoes, rocks, snowblower etc. Now I'm sipping hot chocolate while he is at the hardware store. Ah.. the guilt. Not! Glad you are going to keep the personal trainer. She has been sooo good for you. Justyna
