The Journal of Kelmar
Ok, I have started a journal before and just didn't keep it up, so, I am going to attempt this again. I think my life is about to take a very stressful turn and just having somewhere to write about it and maybe get some advice would be helpful.
Just a little background...I've been primal since January of 2012. My diet and lifestyle have really evolved over the last year. The longer I'm primal the more primal I want to be! I am a 38 year old female, 5 foot 7 inches and about 118 pounds. I haven't weighed myself in so long cause really I'm not that concerned about it anymore. I was really concerned with gaining more weight but my body seems to just be stuck here and I'm guessing it's where I'm supposed to be. I'm just going to concern myself with making good choices and let me body do what it wants.
On the exercise front I'm doing Yoga usually twice a day, but I do body resistance training about 2 days a week so on those days I only do Yoga once. I was taking about an 1 hour to 1 1/2 hour walk every night but the sun is just starting to go down to early in my part of the world now, so I think walking will have to be restricted to the weekends. I also like to do hill sprints or flat sprints once a week but really havent done those in a couple of weeks. I usually practice Yoga at home but I went to a workshop at a local studio last week and really loved the instructor and her place. I'm going to start taking classes with her and am seriously considering working towards becoming a Yoga instructor. I absolutley love Yoga, it helps me in so many ways.
I will let you all know that I am a big hippie. I am working towards balancing my life mentally, physically and spiritually. I am a big believer in Ayurveda. I adore live music and music festivals. I have 8 tattoos and plan to get more.
I am very sad to see summer go, it's my favorite season. I love hot and humid weather. Fall is beautiful and I'm hoping now that I am taking Vitamin D3 everyday I'll will adjust a little better. For a fun fall activity I did take my children (I have two) to an orchard over the weekend for apple picking! We had a ball and got fresh-pressed raw apple cider, honey from their hives and 10 lbs of apples (we went a little crazy picking, lol).
I having some troubles in my marriage right now and really don't know how things are going to turn out. My husband is having trouble adjusting to my new way of life and he doesn't want to share it with me. So, stress!!
Geez how this post got long fast!! I am really going to try and keep this up this time! So very nice to be a part of this forum and learn from all you wonderful people!
I treat my body like a temple.....to nourish the Goddess who lives inside
