My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!

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

1/2 Banana

Apple Slices

Boiled Egg

Broiled Shrimp



Dill Pickle Slice

Pickled Ginger

Pico de gallo

A very few blue corn chips

Very Small pc of Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bar

Grass Fed Butter

Mixed Nuts

Tuna Pouch

Bibb Lettuce


Chicken Liver


Collagen Peptide

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

Jumping Jacks

Bar Back Row

Leg Press

Running in Place

Chest Press



Leg Kicks

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!



I would love to hear your feedback
