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.
Recently, I've come across many more triggers that have brought me back to a negative place. I'll be honest, I thought I was completely healed from my marriage. I've been feeling really good and positive... yet I've experienced so many more small triggers lately that just have set me back mentally. Most of them deal … Continue reading Healing.
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.
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 had different intentions for today's post, but it lead me here. Over the weekend I had to reassess boundaries; not just with my ex but life in general. On Memorial Day every year, Crossfit gyms across the country do "Murph:" "Murph” is a CrossFit Hero WOD (Workout Of the Day) named after Navy Lieutenant … Continue reading Reset.
I have to admit, I've been pretty run down the past week. From the moment I first subbed in March, to getting the interview and demos at the new gym that I was just hired at - add Crossfit on top of that mix and WHOA.I''ll be honest, I'm just tired with a dash of … Continue reading Run Down.
As of March 2nd, I was officially divorced. We had the final divorce hearing on February 16th, everything went well. We just had to wait for the judge to sign off. Technically we've been unofficially divorced since that day, but I was waiting to have the decree in hand that made it "official." When I … Continue reading Divorced.
