The Magic of Believing. (Grokalicious Rides Again)
I'm back. Not that I ever really left, at least not this way of eating/living. My last post in my last journal here was a testimony to just exactly how well this way of life works for me. I'm keeping this journal in the hopes of having some accountability and achieving some fitness goals. Oh, and having some fun too!
Funny, I'm not sure if I've just adapted to not eating gluten or if I really have some allergy but every time I've tried to embrace the 10% part of the 90/10 equation, I've felt like crap. I don't think I'm particularly enamored of alternate flours but may try at some point. (probably not though!). The good news is I'm up to 15-20 unassisted dips, which is pretty cool for an old broad. Now if I could just up my unassisted chin-ups from 1 rep, life would be fantastic. Some girly stuff ahead, so be warned. The other good news is that I finally began menopause (I'm 55). But, because of healthy primalness, I've had zero hot flashes, no weight gain, and have yet to have night sweats. I haven't counted a calorie in forever and my weight/fat percentage has stayed fairly constant. I would like to lose a little more fat and work on flexibility. I'm not sure what I weigh. Last weigh in was right after NYE. I was 126. (4 more lbs than my lowest) but my clothes were looser, inches were lost and muscles more prominent. I'll take a new before pic if I can find a mirror. I no longer have access to my ex's full length mirror but will figure this out too.
The bad news, and it was evident in my old journal too, is that I still have hideous insomnia and unrestorative sleep. I fall out okay but awaken 2 hours later unable to go back to sleep. So, I need to figure that out. I'm sure it has something to do with the vicious coffee cycle I've been swirled up in all these years. My adrenals haven't been good since my Dad died 5 years ago. I'm working on it!
Sleep through the night or at least wake up refreshed
Have more fun
And that, is that.
One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.
