Lab Work and Intermittent Fasting
Sunday, July 05, 2020      2 comments

I got my lab work back yesterday. My fasting sugar is back to the prediabetic range and my triglycerides are high (first time that's happened). My doctor's recommendations on the chart were to exercise and lose weight. Of course they were. We ta... Read more
So That Happened....
Thursday, July 02, 2020      0 comments

I didn't post a blog yesterday because I was having a pretty significant allergic reaction to the peas in my fried rice. I've had a couple small reactions, including when I ate a huge boel of peas soup, so I've been avoiding peas, but not like t... Read more

More on Metabolic Eating
Tuesday, June 30, 2020      1 comments

I found it amusing that I came back to restart my blogging with a post about my metabolic eating plan when that was the last thing I posted on in January. I have to say it worked great...but I didn't. After only 3 weeks on the metabolic eat... Read more
Weird breakfast....
Tuesday, January 21, 2020      2 comments

The metabolic eating is interesting in that it follows patterns that I'm not used to. I'm not used to doing protein in the morning and planning carb-less dinners is something I'm getting used to. It's good, though, and I can definitely feel that... Read more
Shifting Focus
Saturday, January 18, 2020      0 comments

Most recent bout of PT has solidified my inability to really work out. I knew, but it hurts to hear. I will never do yoga, I will never go for a run, I will never do a sit up. I WILL do plenty of leg lifts and "safely aligned" stretches. My do... Read more
Adding in the Activity
Sunday, March 30, 2014      1 comments

So it's that time of year again. The weather is slowly--oh so very slowly--turning warm and I'm coming up with all kinds of great plans for boosting my activity level. It's so much easier for me to be active in the warmer months. The cold really... Read more
Doing Well--Some Updates to the Monk Diet
Sunday, March 23, 2014      2 comments

Well, the new eating plan is working well. I can't quite bring myself to enter in on Spark every day since it's pretty much the same. I have added a couple things to it based on some research I did. Here are the changes I made: 5:45: 1c fru... Read more
Day...4? Maybe 5....
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      2 comments

So I've been on my new eating plan for 5-ish days. Overall, I feel like crap, but it's not because of the food. The food is working out great. For pretty much my whole life (assuming my life started around age 10), I have been addicted to ... Read more
New Meal Plan
Saturday, March 15, 2014      1 comments

Started my new meal plan today. I've really excited. It's a Buddhist-inspired set up of brown rice with a rotation of raw and boiled veggies, miso soup made with the veggie stock, homemade hummus, a variety of beans, and green tea. Add in a coup... Read more
I'm back for the final sprint...
Friday, February 28, 2014      1 comments

I only have 20 lbs left that I "have" to lose and 30 lbs that I'd like to lose. Much of the weight I've lost over the last few months was accidental, happening due to stress and a limited access to food because of the new job. I was surpri... Read more
Got the Job!! ^_^
Friday, August 23, 2013      2 comments

Well, I'm a teacher. I got the offer yesterday and it came from the first school I interviewed at. I guess they had to finish interviewing everyone else they received applications from before they could offer it to me, which is what took so long... Read more
Back From Vacation
Tuesday, August 20, 2013      3 comments

Third vacation of the summer is over (a week at my parents') and I'm glad to get back to normal life. I didn't get to my workouts and I only walked two days, but it was much lighter walking than I usually do. I ate pretty well, except for last n... Read more
Feeling Good About the Exercise
Monday, August 12, 2013      1 comments

Still working on my eating a bit, but I think I have a great exercise routine down. I've been walking 3-4 miles a day at a park near my house. It's a dirt path, so there are hills and slopes and plenty of twists and bends to keep the walk i... Read more
Overcoming Fear
Sunday, August 11, 2013      2 comments

At the beginning of the summer, my family went to VA to visit relatives. We ended up spending a day at Busch Gardens, because we always do when we go down there. Somewhere during the day, I decided that I was going to ride a roller coaster. I ha... Read more
