It's been almost on month on my lower carb/ low glycemic index "diet." Eh, let's just say I really hate the word "diet." Okay, moving on. As I mentioned in THIS post, I'm following a macro ratio of about 10% Carbs, 25% Protein and 65% Fat. I'm not being too strict and I'm NOT doing … Continue reading ALMOST One Month In: Low Carb/ Low GI.
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this here but, you MIGHT not know this about me: I'm gluten intolerant. Well, okay it looks like I did VAGUELY in THIS post. I was having severe digestive issues in 2009-2011 during my weight loss journey. The culprit? I was eating things that were apparently my allergens … Continue reading Compromising My Health.
I've been a bit M.I.A, simply because I did not know what to say. The relationship that I was previously in ended and I shelled up with my thoughts. I started realizing that I was falling back into the same toxic patterns as with my ex-husband. I OVER give people the benefit of the doubt. … Continue reading Old Patterns.
It's been about quite some time of self work. I've gone from separated in late 2018, to attempting to retry again during the pandemic to separated again in summer 2020 to filing for divorce at the end of 2020 to finally becoming a divorced, single mom and home owner in early 2021. What a whirlwind. … Continue reading Self Work.
We can't chose what triggers us, only how we respond to it. That's the thing about trauma (no matter how severe). There are always things that are going to trigger you - it can literally be the slightest thing. Most days, I can feel triggered and know that I am about to go downhill and … Continue reading Trigger.
Last week I got sick. I had a small cold that seemed to come about Friday afternoon. After class that morning, the kiddos and I went home. We ended up staying home for two days straight. We seemed to have come down with a cold and everyone was sniffly and tired. Movies and plenty of … Continue reading Rest.
I stopped working with my nutrition coach. I originally signed up for three months to see where I could take my body but something happened in the last few weeks. I felt my energy depleting, mainly because I had increased my training at Crossfit. I found myself faced with a lot of "going out" situations … Continue reading Time For A Break.
I've been feeling myself fall into a downward spiral. I know what triggered it (won't dive into it), but I'm in awe as to how aware I am. I know exactly what is causing me to feel down and I'm seeing that every little thing is effecting me. I'm trying to crawl out of this … Continue reading Downward Spiral.
I am not sure where I'm going with this post, but here we go. A while ago, I had been dating someone for almost a month and had a bit of a breakdown. He has been so nice and such a great person that I started to look back at my previous marriage. I couldn't … Continue reading Divorced Pt II: Growth.
It hit me the other day... All this "being busy" that I threw myself into post divorce literally goes against who I am. As a minimalist, I try to focus on intentional living and not flooding my calendar. It's important to rest, recharge and reset. For almost a month I have done absolutely none of … Continue reading Slowing Down.
