Day 8, 22 to go!
Hello Again, Day 8 and still here YAY!!! So many things, so little time. I hope everyone is having a good day!
First, I want to share a couple of things I found and am so excited. I used to use Vitamin E Oil and Coco Butter all of the time. I some how got out of that habit, and recently, decided I should try these again. (My skin has been unbeleivably dry recently. Maybe it is due to the weather, maybe it is one of my meds, but it is crazy. Plus, I am really fighting fine lines and wrinkle with a vengance)
So,first I found this Vitamin E Oil. It says it is actually for hair, but Vitamin E Oil is Vitamin E Oil, you can use it anywhere. I started last night using this on my face, hands and elbows. It is oily, but in my opinion, it is a great moisturizer.
It has a great smell, lathers up nicely, and feels really good on my skin. And, bonus, it is all natural. I think I got both of these at Target, sometimes, if you just scan the shelves at stores, you find the most random things. If you have never tried the Vitamin E Oil, give it a try. If you have new scars, it works miracles on scars.
G and I got pretty good walk/jog in this morning, but for some reason, he wanted to stop and smell every other leave. I finally headed over to the parking lot, were there were no leaves or grass to smell. This was our walkWanted to get 3 miles in, but miscalculated.
My workout today was pretty fast paced, I was working on getting my heart rate up and burning cals. I wanted to hit a little over 300 cal, tomorrow I WILL!
But today, for the food I have ate or will eat:
Gluten Free Protein Chocolate Chip Pancake
Sugar Free Syrup
Dill Pickle Slice
Pico de gallo
A very few blue corn chips
Very Small pc of Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bar
Grass Fed Butter
Nestles Coffee Creamer
Again that looks like a LOT of food I think tomorrow I will start posting the macros for each day as well.
My work out today was:
Bent Over Row
Dumb Bell Dead Lift
Bar Back Row
Running in Place
Kettle Bell Abs
I did a few sprints today
I also do 5-7 minutes of stretching when I am done each day.
I started the day feeling pretty good, it took me a few minutes to wake up today, and once I did wake up, I felt pretty good. I think the trick to my eating, ( after watching carefully for 8 days, and prior) is if I stay away from too much sugar, I do better. I really do not think it is the Gluten nor the wheat so much as the sugar. Other then the small portions Rice Krispie Bar, I have been good about not eating too much sugar. For example, yesterday, I had 72 grams of sugar, which is more that I feel I should have, but lower then most day.s I was a little low on protein yesterday, I try to get 100+grams every day, yesterday I only had 96 grams. I watch this very closely, because like I said, I think it is the sugar more than anything that affects my inflammation. I also noted that I need more fat, (grass fed butter, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, ) Which reminds me, I think I need to make another batch of Fat Bombs.
My pain level today I would say is a 5, I am feeling pretty good.
I would really like input on the pod casts, so E-mail with your thoughts
Well doodle bugs, until I can get this blog to generate income, and maybe a podcast, I have to get back to my real job.
Remember to hydrate, drink lots, get up and move, be active, keep a smile on your face, be happy, and get out and enjoy the SUNSHINE, when it quits raining. Life is short, live hard!
