I've been reading a blog of someone who follows a No Sugar No Grain diet with a 5% leeway, that is, 5% of their eating can be these items. I recognize that I am much more satiated when I eat more protein and less carbs and that I snack more when I eat sweets. We just stocked up on groceries that have a lot of these items so we've got to go through those. I am making an effort to get to NSNG for the rest of the year and see how I feel.

    2 days of no wheat, 3 days of low wheat. I added a streak tracker. I feel better already, not hungry all the time emoticon

    The NSNG way of eating works for me...I try to only eat big carbs once a day. It cuts down on my cravings too.

Getting "back"

Thursday, September 04, 2014

I had a great two weeks of walking the beach in Florida, only one day where my back gave me trouble. But since I've been home, my lower back has been giving me problems. It has given me an authentic appreciation for chronic pain sufferers. I'm back to doing Yoga stretches which helps a lot since my hamstrings tightened up with all the walking. My inclination is to cut back on excersing and soothe myself with sweets and carbs. The corresponding weight gain contributes to the back problems I believe. One day at a time, get back to moving and this too shall pass.

Progress this month so far

Saturday, August 09, 2014

Good golly, you'd think I tried to climb Mt Everest! I have been on my dear treadmill every day. I tell myself, just 5 minutes and before I know it I've done 20 or 30 minutes and a mile! The water has been iced tea but I'm getting it down.

Today I decided to get real and updated my weight goals. I got down from my high a couple of years ago but I realized I've been settling for that and not getting to where I need to be to get out of the obese and overweight BMI categories. So I reset my goals to reflect where I am TODAY and where I need to be.

On another note, the PT is helping a lot and I'm able to do Yoga without pain. Learning what muscle was injured and working with it to heal is making the difference.
