Today I officially started preparing for the new vegan diet by shopping, getting out the tape measure and scale, taking out the blood pressure cuff and making some staples from scratch: salsa, german potato salad, dill pickles (refrigerator style) and started some saur kraut. I’m very excited about beginning this journey and seeing how itContinue reading “Prepping Day”
I’ve always been curious about diet and what it can do for your health. Over the years I’ve read countless books about Keto diet and high fat diets but not until just this last week did I come across the starch based diet, created by Dr. McDougall. It’s fascinating to think that we could controlContinue reading “Vegan lifestyle”
Getting back on track
So, I’ve strayed from my plans for the past few weeks and I need to regain my focus and determination. I get frustrated easily with making changes and some hip pain really got me down, but I’m getting back on track here. I’m not sure if the pain was caused by over stretching in yogaContinue reading “Getting back on track”
Busy busy and how to slow down!
Life just gets so darn busy. I want to see what it’s like to live the simple life and really connect to my passions, but it’s just so darn hard! I am trying to make little changes and tweaking and tweaking and then tweaking some more. I’m definitely struggling with seeing myself alcohol free forever.Continue reading “Busy busy and how to slow down!”
Sugar and weight loss
I remember back in my teens I decided to go sugar free and I was relentlessly reading labels and would eat no white flower or sugar. I lost so much weight doing this. It sounds simple, but it takes a lot of effort to do it. There is sugar in everything! I’ve been thinking aboutContinue reading “Sugar and weight loss”
If I did not have to work what would I spend my time doing?
This is a question I ponder often. Because my husband is 15 years my senior and at retirement age I often battle with this question. I run a very successful service-based business (real estate), and my retirement age, if typical, is still 15 years away. However, we have built enough in savings that I couldContinue reading “If I did not have to work what would I spend my time doing?”
Things I’m doing because I’m sober
To keep the perspective fresh I want to document things I’ve done over the month of January that I would not have done if I was not sober. 1. I did 23 workouts! Yep! I did. 23 days of 31 I was physically improving myself. I did 6 yoga classes, 6 gym workouts with weightsContinue reading “Things I’m doing because I’m sober”
The mind is a tricky thing!
Last night hubby and I went to a concert to see an old Favorite band, Styx. We did it alcohol free. As I was on the way there I thought about all the 100’s and probably 1000’s of times we’ve gone to events and concerts over the years and this would be count for myContinue reading “The mind is a tricky thing!”
San Diego trip and a fail at the end!
Well, it got the best of me. Hubby and I made it through the whole event alcohol free until I opened my mouth last night. It was finally over and we took a cab to the beach area. And there was wine everywhere, the sun was setting and the musician was playing. Everyone was sittingContinue reading “San Diego trip and a fail at the end!”
