I am getting a personal trainer cert in about two months, and I am seriously considering doing NTP training in Hartford this fall. If I can find a way to pay for it, I think it would be ideal for me. As it is now, people who approach me about weight loss generally still feel they will do what "my doctor" says or what the latest diet book author to appear on Oprah says "six small meals a day!" rather than what I did, despite the fact that it obviously worked. I really want to get some credibility so I can effectively help other people take their health back as I did. Sadly, having done it isn't "cred" at all! The only exception is my Rolfer who was so inspired by the drastic changes in my muscles (I started seeing her right before I started; I suffered from fibromyalgia for decades; it is part of my disability diagnosis) that she has changed her diet and lifestyle similarly.
I got a turkey bosom in the crock pot, heading to TJs then the gym... oh my big news? Wait for it...,.
I am paleo-izng my kids finally!
My older daughter has been hospitalized THREE times for asthma, a week each time. I feel very strongly without wheat and dairy her asthma would hugely improve. My youngest is just very over-active and combative a lot and it's time I cut the lazy act and start feeding them the way I eat, with some laxity of course; they can have fruit carbs and nightshades and paleo "treats" and gluten free (almond and coconut flour) baked goods. I explained to my 10 year old (the one with severe asthma) that since she is OBSESSED with baking and sits in front of Cake Boss for hours at a time, that gluten-free baking is the new up and coming thing. I told her how celiac is on the rise and if she wants to be a baker, she should specialize in Paleo baking.
I'm going to start a paleo blog pretty soon! Also, look at my sweet new avatar from Chatty!
