I am alone in my house all day today and Wednesday. Do you have any idea how rare that is?
I napped for 3 hours.
I have since been singing at the top of my lungs. I'm not sure which audition song I will choose, but I have narrowed things down. I am beginning to really fall in love with the character of Lucy Harris. I definitely have the voice and the looks to play her. I just need to keep the "Too Old and Too Fat" demons at bay.
Being beer, cheese and sugar bloated is not helping the negative self talk.
I am reading "The Diet Cure" by Julia Ross. I had read her "Mood Cure" previously. I was overwhelmed by her supplement list in that book. In this book, she uses a basically primal diet and a combo of different amino acids to cure several body chemistry imbalances. The difference is that she recommends doses throughout the day. I am going to take three of the four she recommends. I think this may be important for the "lower protein" crowd. We may not be getting enough aminos from our food.
It is interesting, like me she is a big advocate of eating enough. She sets the low limits of calories for every adult at 2100 calories. The World Health Organization has stated that "starvation begins" under that number. She has also found in her research that even the concentration camp Treblinka gave prisoners 900 cals/day. So all you "low cal" peeps out there, make sure you are maintaining a good balance of proteins and fats (and carbs, Ross would add).
She gives a wide range of 50-100 grams of protein being enough for most people.
