    • Funny you mention music HB.. I just downloaded some on my new-to-me ipod! Yes, music is usually the way for me. I can do a movie if I turn it way up though to be heard over the treadmill.

          • oh, had not thought of that but yeah I probably can. I have Amazon Prime and can download a purchase or watch a ton of them for free. Great idea.

                  • happy new year!!!

                    I definitely blast the volume on the movie so I can hear it over the sound of the treadmill. And the idea of music to move to is why I watched Mama Mia so many times over while doing the treadmill! Basically what I am finding for me is that has to be something I really want to see or hear or do. BFF calls a family member while she does her walk (she does hers in the evening though), I watch movies, which is something I never do otherwise, it sort of makes it special. Unfortunately not a habit yet, and something that is still the first thing I drop if I have a busy day, but getting there. I decided to just be realistic with myself, and know that I don't love doing it on work days because it makes me rush around too much, so I am just doing it on my days off. Eventually I plan to add a Tabata circuit on my work days, since it is only 8 minutes.

                      • How about Paleo podcasts? I am starting to use them as I clean and exercise.

                          • oh girly, I am back from my rendezvous with the treadmill. Turns out I had 1 hour and 15 minutes left in the movie (actually I think that is where Dudla left off, but whatever) so I just kept going. I also drank 50 oz of water while on there. I need to go back to doing ACV in that bottle again, I had let that slip.

                            • ok.. back from my stroll with the treadmill..tonights selection was Jeopardy. I walked for @ 20 minutes. I can not say I "feel" it but I was starting to glow Then a dinner of taco salad (mine was leaf lettuce, chili colorado and salsa- I need more veggies in it next time). What amazes me is I announced taco salad for dinner, Lily's response is oh what a perfect way to end the day. Ummm.. ok.. she likes taco salad?! She has had it a few times but I kind of thought it was reluctantly but no, she snarfed it up. Granted she had a very mild version (lettuce, beef and cheese). Slowly we will add additional items but I call this progress.

                              Ok.. back to the treadmill.. I had a lightbulb idea. Part of Lily's sensory diet at home is to do "heavy" work. So, working on something new (I will talk to the OT and get further direction). I put some books in a back pack, had Lily put it on and put HER on the treadmill at an incline of 1 and a speed of 2-2.5 for 15 min. SHE LOVED IT! Wants more. In fact, she is obnoxious about it.

                              Edit: So, today the nap was great and worked with the headache. I have also only had 1 cup of coffee today and have been drinking nothing but water with a splash of ACV in each glass-no sweetener. Looks like this might be the norm for more than a few days.

                              So here is the food breakdown for me: My goal is to emulate Paula's breakfast model. High protein. Like P, I also want to maintain a VLC approach to food. I have already dropped dairy. Strange but true, not jonesing for it. With me running the kitchen dinner meals will be better. I have my paleo cookbooks/books ready to go (including well fed).

                              I really would like to get completely off AFS but I am not an idiot. Once school ramps back up, thats my crack (its contained and easy). What I can and will control on it is the amount. Its not unheard of for me to have a few+. I am shooting for ONE in the afternoon. I know there will be days it is NONE.

                              Cold and snow have arrived again.. oh yeah.
