THOUGHTS…..THINKING AWAY


smoothie-463331_1920

It’s been ten (10) days now of my smoothie blast-a-ton. Or something to that effect, truly it’s been a wretched period, with little to no breakouts on my face, just the random  show-casers who feel the need to be seen, when clearly they were supposed to be hidden; hence the action .

But, it’s all good , happy reporting that I feel less bloatish (yes that’s my word) and somewhat weightless. Is this what I really want to say right now? I feel light, extremely so. Morning routine/ day routine

1 8oz cup of turmeric tea a bit on the warm side

2 Eggs scrambled, or sunny side up/ cranberry pancakes  with English breakfast tea

1 glass of water (really an effort here, no kidding :))

8oz pasta or rice with peas, maybe some veggies depending and cucumber salad

more water, with much effort

1 cup ginger tea

5 crix  that’s a biscuit  or a slice of my special bread

more water

oats with milk chocolate

8oz cup of turmeric tea still on the warm side

Now after a full day I am left with a desire to get fit, and a desire to eat, and to my way of thinking I choose to eat, as sooner than later… with the right frame of mind I can overcome everything else, and still be healthy  .

STARTING OVER ……SAY WHAT!!


image

Yesterday I was thoroughly drained, exhausted and in badly need of fluids, so dehydrated I more or less felt really bombed out. I’m beginning to wonder if maybe I picked up a bug. Having to shake this very listless feeling is tiring indeed!
So much to get done and so little time in which to do these tasks. I need a booster! Lately I’ve been having berry smoothies, with a hint of vegetables thrown in for good measure, and I’m starting to see a difference in my skin’s texture. Mostly it’s been clear ……for the minor dark marks here and there, (total age killers, I might add)

Recently, though I had a massive breakout session with the lurkers. And then reality set in to further test my resolve; what you put in your body is what you look like on the outside!

My consciousness has perfect skin, though he may think otherwise….. Tight, poreless, ever flushed, and I have never, not once seen him dripping in sweat. Then again he’s a fitness guru, and being in the zone you tend to mimic the other.
So, I’m starting over , changing the course as they say, improvement is on the way. And at the same time, living the good life!
Till you hear from me……….

MY EVERYDAY ATTEMPT AT HEALTHY EATING AND LIVING WELL


For this week I am going to try my very first diet, a high protein low carb diet. With an hour a day of high intensity cardio, and (15) minutes stretching with that same amount to cool down. I have switched vitamins based on my Dr.’s advice ; also prepared to drink 2 glasses of heart healthy soya milk daily. (I can feel my stomach churning already just at the sound of it all). I’ll also be posting daily randomly when work permits.

Broccoli – If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like broccoli, you should try it out once again! It’s full of antioxidants that can cleanse your body. It’s also high in enzymes that help to get your digestive system running efficiently. Raw broccoli is best because it has a high level of nutrients inside of it. chicken breast.

Lemons – These are great in drinks and recipes, but they are also packed full of vitamins and antioxidants. These protect the liver and they get rid of chemicals inside of the body. Consuming lemons on a regular basis can improve health.

beets

Beets – These can be incorporated into a lot of different recipes or they can be eaten raw. They are full of betaine and pectin, which help protect the liver and the digestive system. These can cleanse the body so you have fewer toxins. FYI a favorite side dish, I simply love  these, eaten half raw.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit – This fruit helps cleanse the digestive system and it can prevent kidney stones from developing. It’s also low in natural sugars and calories, so it’s great for dieting.

Avocados – Do you love avocados so much you would put slices of them on just about any food you eat? There’s no reason to feel guilty about doing this, especially because this is such a great food for you to eat. Avocados are packed full of antioxidants, including glutathione. This is used to  detox the body by transporting harmful toxins right out of it. By reducing the chemicals and toxins in your body you will be healthier and feel better.
