My aunti Flo came to visit today, Sigh everytime she gets here her first day knocks me out big time. I was completely and utterly useless today.. Its a good thing I'm staying with my mom so she could help me get the boys off to school. Crampy, light headed, nauseated, so full of pain couldn't move even if it were to save my life... (You would think that eating healthier and non toxic foods would stop most of the pain at this time of month) Oh well I suppose it's mostly my fault because I didn't drink enough water in time to dilute the toxic crap and my no need for pill's attitude, Well at least I can move now and the worst day is darn near finished...
The only good thing about being stuck in bed all day into a forced 22 hour fast is I dropped another lb'd, Yay... Only 23 more to go. Oh that and I managed to catch up on sleep .. since I haven't been able to sleep more then 3-5 hours a night for the past .. oh I don't know but it's been months! I'm surprised I am still able to function.
Ok enough with the woe is me topic
Lets see.. I made a goal for myself a couple years ago .. I want to be in the best shape of my life by the time I turn 30. That's spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally. Since my seperation in 2008 I have been working on myself emotionally, spiritually and mentally, I still have a little ways to go But in those aspects I am in pretty decent shape compared to where I started. But 3 out of 4 ain't good.. My physical self was getting further and further behind. Finding The Paleo diet in December was God sent! It has really helped catch my physical being up with the rest in no time flat! Before I started eating the Paleo way I was getting sick ALL the time.. I mean there was a time when I never got sick (of course that was when I was 19-20 when I pretty much was borderline Paleo without even knowing it, I never ate bread.. I would buy it but it would sit and rot on my counter. no pop, occasional chips etcetc. I was always out doing things walking, rollarblading , being energitic. I was fairly healthy but not really cause I was a smoker) *7 YEARS NON SMOKER!!!* So yes I was getting Sick at least twice a month or so .. it was seeming to be that I WAS ALWAYS SICK! ughh .. but Since I started eating the Paleo way .. I have not had a sick day from work. My boys came home from school one time and were out with the flu for like a week, usually I would catch it after they were finished with theirs.. This time NOTHING!.. I know there was some days when I should have gotten sick .. (woke up with the sick like feeling) but as the day continued I felt healthier.
Ok Ok .. so there was 3 days I was stuck in bed but it wasn't virus related at all... The first time TMI ALERT was when I was so constipated I was stuck in bed with cramps and hot flashes until .. *it passed* but afterwards I was great . (I fixed that problem by reading up on paleo constipation) and the next two times were Aunt Flo related.. Fricken Flo never brings any good presents when she visits!
So ya my physical self is definitely catching up considering when I started this diet my weight was on the increasing verge, and now I am 23 lbs off my goal weight. I think I am going to try running again . I tried a couple years ago but got major shin splints I gave up on that idea.. Or perhaps I will just do the sprinting.. that should be infrequent enough to not get the shin splints. I was youtubing paleo exercises and wow .. I'm getting so inspired.. Right now tee hee.. my exercise is slim to nothing.. but I have been trying to do at least 10 push ups a day .. ( slowly increasing of course... ) (Ashamed of my lack of enthusim on the exercises part of my physical being, but it comes slowly right??)
hmmm Well My journals are pretty *colorful*... Keeps me entertained while I'm writing it. I can tell all you readers LOVE it to..
Well thats all from me today ..
