Back on Track?
Oh man, the holidays (combined with my obnoxious work schedule during the holidays) got me way off track. I may have gained some poundage. I say "may" only because I haven't stepped on a scale. I stopped doing my coffee enemas, dry brushing, and oil pulling. I stopped taking my supplements. I added grain back into my diet (have you ever done the holidays without bread, cookies, etc.?) I e been imbibing alcoholic beverages. I've been eating sugar.
I'm spending one more glorious day eating whoever I want! Drinking coffee and champagne and eating whatever I want! And then Monday is the start of a new year.
Sometimes I wonder why I care. I started seeing the nutritionist to lose weight and I know I have more learning to do, more work to do, more of all of it to start seeing results. I also have this nagging hope that any of this will help facilitate a miracle. I can't honestly say that I'm doing this for health or weight loss than I am for fertility.
Regardless, here's the plan. It's pretty much what I should have been doing this whole time.
1. Cut out all grain. No more rice or corn, even if I don't think I have reactions. On that note, no more potatoes or sugar for that matter. I'm going back to low carb, at least for a few months.
2. On a similar point, I'm cutting out booze. Yes, I love my wine, and with a social job like I have, cutting it out will be next to impossible, but I will do my best. I guess on that note, I will also be cutting out any fruit juice.
3. Get back on the supplements. The faster I heal, the better.
4. Pick up the detoxing habits again - oil pulling, dry brushing and coffee enemas.
5. Include fermented foods in my diet, including fermented pickles and water kefir.
6. Tracking my food and activity to create a sight deficit. I feel like my metabolism should be repaired by quite a bit at this point, since I have done 5 months of resetting, but I also think I still have an odd relationship with food, without the ability to quit.
7. Start running again. I miss racing, and I want to sign up for some in 2014. It's been far too long.
8. Start a simple body weight exercise routine, even if it's just some planks and squats.
I hope this gets me back on track quickly and without too much effort.
Happy new year everyone!
