Day 22 with no chocolate and alcohol
Sunday, April 22, 2012      1 comments

Well, so far so good. However it's not what I had hoped it to be. I wanted to teach myself better ways to deal with stress rather than always reaching for a square of chocolate or a drink to help me unwind. My plan was to start going for ... Read more
New goal

I have decided it's time for a big change. A challenge and a test of my will power. I have been feeling powerless against my desire for food, particularly chocolate and chips and alcohol. They make me feel better for a short time, then I alw... Read more

Not a good day. Back to work, which was great, so many happy faces, delightful smiles and hugs. But I woke up at 5 am because my hips hurt and I could not get back to sleep. I wish I had taken some muscle relaxants then, but I didn't. I mad... Read more

5 days ago I honestly thought it would take at least 2 weeks for me to be able to do this whole workout, but I did it today! I actually could keep pace with the ladies, and only took a couple 5 second breaks (mountainclimbers and plank-jacks co... Read more

Wow! I can finally say that I did the whole routine today. I still took a few 5 second breaks, but not the 25 second breaks that I was doing earlier. Still doing some of the moves modified, but not all of them! And I am just dripping sweat ... Read more

I have one week of holidays before I go back to work, and finally some time to myself to recommit and spend some time on me. I also signed up for a 5k run at the end of the month with TEam Diabetes in Saskatoon, however I haven't been runni... Read more

Thursday, June 30, 2011      2 comments

Last weekend I did my second juice fast. My plan is to fast at the change of seasons as regularly as possible. This time I did a few things differently. I didn`t stick to a strict fruit and veg only the day before and after fasting. I at... Read more

I bought the extended warranty, I want it to last!!!! The last 3 weeks have been really rough. I'm not used to feeling sick and unwell. I'm used to going and going and doing everything and then some. I'm not good at being si... Read more

Today I ran outside for the first time this year. Usually I'm on the treadmill or I do a dvd, but as the weather is finally improving, I really wanted to get outside. Last weekend I thought about it, but made the excuse that I didn't have ... Read more

I finally did my first 5K run/walk! I was hoping to do it Friday night after work, but prep for my daughter's 3rd birthday party took longer than I anticipated. I original goal was to finish the 5K within 42 minutes. But I got on th... Read more
eating intuitively....much harder than it seems
Sunday, March 20, 2011      0 comments

I have a confession.... I like to eat. But as I write that I realise, I don't like to eat as much as I enjoy the thought of eating good food. Actually eating isn't always as enjoyable as the thought, the anticipation, the mouth-watering idea o... Read more

So I've gained back almost 2 lbs since I started eating again, but I kinda expected that. Monday, when I started just eating whole fruits and vegetables, I added real sea salt to my cooked veggies, something I never do. But I was craving s... Read more

I really feel very good. This surprises me. I expected to feel slow and sluggish and grouchy. Not at all. This is good! My plan today is to continue the juice fast for half the day and then start eating whole fruits and vegetables in th... Read more
morning of day 2
Sunday, March 13, 2011      0 comments

Apparently I lost another 2 lbs yesterday. The purpose of this juice fast was not to lose weight, simply to cleanse my system and give my digestive system a rest so my body could focus on healing and eliminating toxins. But I certainly don't m... Read more
