Well, Thursday’s where my health update days and I really would like to get back to making a weekly update and goal list, I am doing a journel but I found knowing I would need to write it out, that it helped make sure I got that extra or final workout..
In regards to local food, I am still doing well at this time, the garden is producing fresh goodies to bring in the house, the freezers are getting down there, in fact, I really should make it a project to go though them, move them into one and defrost and clean the big meat one, then shift everything over and do the same with the smaller veggies/fruit one before the big push for the fall butcher begins. The cellar is holding, with around 500 jars of things in it, give or take.
A few extra things have been brought in for the wheat belly eating, and some I have been able to source locally and others, not so much but I have made a point in going organic in some, and or plain, no oils or salt etc in others, I will admit to being worried about how to eat within my own planned budget in winter, I know that I can use the four season grow box’s to keep me in greens and a few other fresh things until Dec, and I can sprout and have pots of greens growing in the house ( I am planning on bringing in a couple good pots of horseradish roots this year) but any way I cut it, I am going to have a good three month gap in being able to get the fresh stuff in the kitchen and in winter, Itend to be a meat/potato’s, stew, soup, with bread, muffins, pancakes etc kinda gal..
Which brings me to my third week on my own modified version of the “Wheat Belly”, its a cross between a feritily diet and wheat belly diet, so while there is no wheat, there are a few other things I know others avoid, If I react to them, I do remove them but if no reaction, then I stay with limited amounts of them, example, I know that they say, no potatos, but I am growing 500 plus pds of them, and I will be using them, having said that, I make sure they are eaten within a meal, with protein and in very limited amounts, so far, no blood sugar rush that I can tell and the important one for me, no eating trigger..
While the weight loss has been nice, the biggest thing for me is that I have had the feeling of the need to eat taken away, I love it, I still find it amazing to be honest, for many, many! years, It has always been a battle between will power vs an insane at time craving for just one more, O I learned tricks to break the routine, go for a walk, ten min workout, sleep, play wii, anything that had a chance of getting me back on track was used..
I thought that it was just me setting my mind that I was going to do this but that’s not it, I can see the triggers, if I eat correctly, I truly have no cravings to go snack between meals, I have no issues walking away from extra on my plate, I have no issues tasting something with a bite or two and then saying.. No, I don’t feel like that and walking away.. you have no idea how odd yet impowering that feels to me.
Moving on, I got a few new on sale workout video’s to give me short 15 to 30 min workouts, one is a dance one, one is a kettlebell one, one is a stretching etc. but to be honest, my main workout is shoveling manure in the barn, gardening and keeping up with the critters/farm. Having said that I am going to start going to the weight training once a week.
Speaking of health- My mom was just at the stage of being able to drive for the first time this week and she went downtown, walked a store and back home agian, which was lots for a first trip out but it went well!! Way to go mom.. she seems to be healing well and the knee is coming along really well, I am so proud of her!
So these are my goals for the coming week..
- Contine to stay on my choosen eating path
- Workout min 3x a week
- Get to that blasted Gym, I am paying for at least once a week-either swimming, aqau-fit or the weight training class.
- Continue any and all requirements for the fertility diet/testing etc
We will see how I do.. So how are you all doing in your personal goals in regards to food choices? Your personal health goals? Did you have a good week? Did you have a struggle and if so, want to share it? Had a moment of total bliss?
