I've been feeling rather icky lately. Not sick icky. Lazy, do nothing icky. It's an awful way to feel. So, I'm doing something about it. Yesterday I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and today I'm doing the 20 minute beginner workout on the BowFlex. I never thought I would say this, but I really miss working at Curves. Not only do I miss the rich conversations I used to have with the women. I miss being able to move around at work and not being stuck in an office.

Recently one of the things that I felt like I needed to do was to eat less meat. I've never been a big meat eater, don't even really like it and like the idea of eating animals even less.
Not that I have completely gone vegetarian but I'm eating very little meat, but, being careful to make sure I get plenty of protein.
I just feel better when I don't eat meals heavy with lots of meat.
I guess, that is just what works for my system.

It's about that time of year to really gear up your vitamin supplement program - schools back in session, cold and flu season won't be far behind. I've ordered our first round of colloidal silver, colostrum, bromelain w/quercitin,and liquid whole foods vitamins. I ordered Levi a round of multi vitamins for men and CoQ10 for his heart. I'm sure I'll add more for us as the winter months drag on. The change of seasons is a good time to do a cleanse. I normally do a light cleanse in the fall since I've been eating lighter foods (more veggies and fruits) all summer.

So, what are you guys doing these days to stay healthy?

kind of scary

I have an appointment today with a new beautician to get my hair cut.

She is new in Allen. I don't know a thing about her. No one I've asked has heard anything about her work.

Maybe I'm crazy, but, I'm going to give her a chance.

I'm not doing anything drastic just a little trimming, a little layering - wish me luck.

Intuitive eating can be a tricky thing....

it's like I have a dual personality and each of them want to have a say-so in my intuition.

There is the side of me that wants to be, likes to be healthy so that I feel good, live longer, you know, the smarter side of my brain, but..
there is this other side to - the Ms. Piggy side of me that just wants to have fun, keeps telling me that life's short - eat cake.

Every once in a while the Ms. Piggy side starts to override the smarter side and I start feeling bloated and clothes don't fit right anymore which makes the smart side snap awake and go


It happened just like that Saturday night when I was trying on clothes trying to decide what to wear Sunday.

I've told Ms. Piggy that she was just out of control and needed to stop baking those yummy desserts. I don't care if it is too hot to go outside and do anything, you can't fill up your day baking and eating. Go sit down with a glass of water and read.

I'm thinking of taking a yoga class. I've tried the videos, but always seem to injure my back when I try them. I know I'll need some special allotment of time that is just for me once I start homeschooling Erin. I currently pay $39 a month for a membership at Curves that I don't use. I think it might be better used with a yoga or light stretching class.
