CHRYSALIS: Oil Pulling Explained

CHRYSALIS: Oil Pulling Explained: Well,  a few weeks ago I saw a show on Dr. Oz where he was talking about oil pulling and other mystical treatments.  I have tried this and it really works.  Check out the article.  It is worth a reblog!  Oil pulling works!

Sweat is Fat Crying!

Hello blog!  It has been a while.  I am back.  I have found my muse and a little motivation too.  I plan to get back on track with the exercise and getting more active.  That is my issue.  Not enough motion in my day.  I need to get up and get moving and I plan to make an effort to do that.  Right now I think that my weight is getting the best of me.  Weight on a bad knee is not good.  So I think I will have to fight thru the pain to better rewards! 

The time to fight fat is now.  What is it that I hear people at the gym saying?  SWEAT IS FAT CRYING!  So get ready to cry FAT!  It is on!

Watching the Food


Food. Can't live with it and can't live without it.  I have been making a great effort not cut down on the calories and I feel thinner.  Really.  I think it will be just  matter of continued discipline till the pounds begin to come off.  I have made a great effort to cut out all sweets and have just about eliminated all drinks to nothing but water.  I really have to get the weight off. Doctors orders.  The last time I went in to see him was about a month ago.  He suggested I start going to weight watchers but right now I cannot afford it.  You have to pay for that of course.

Me?  I plan to do it the old fashion way.  Eating less and sweating it off. The gym and I think eating only 80% of your food. Stop at 80% no matter what is on your plate and no eating after 8pm.  Everything after that turns to fat.  I will be much slimmer by summer and I want to feel in much better health.  I am finally on the right track!

It is REALLY Happening!

Well, it is really happening now.  I have started going back to the gym. I joined Planet Fitness for that great low price of $10 a month.  I have been going three times a week and have been walking on the treadmill for an hour.  That lets me get in about 3 miles of walking.  So far my legs have felt a little rubbery  but after that I feel just fantastic for the rest of the day.  I do take baths in Epsom salts just in case.  So far no soreness.  Just a feeling of euphoria that I am finally making that lifestyle change that has been so long in the coming. 

Granted it did have a catalyst.  About a month or so ago I was sick with  a bad cold and I had to do to the doctor.  He did all the normal things, weigh, blood pressure, temperature.  We discovered for the very first time that my blood pressure was a little high.  He has since put me on some medication and that has reduced it.  So with that  of course he suggested I lose weight.  That something I already knew but it all struck a note that had not been struck before. 

I am back on the gym trail. In my 20's and 30's I was a gym rat.  I lived at the gym, was a size 8 and was in perfect shape, not an ounce of fat.  I will return there.  Or as close as I can get.  I am looking forward to wearing some of the clothes that I could never part with.  I kept them...all my small clothes.  I knew I would be returning there...so here I am.  Finally on the track were I want to go. 

The Lenten season is upon us and I have even incorporated that into it.  No more sweet snacks at my desk at work during the day.  That was not helping.  So I am staying away from that. 

At the gym, I think I will stick with the walking for a while but I would like to advance eventually to the elliptical machines.  Time.  It takes time.  It did not gain all this weight in a day and it will not go away in a day either.  The bad thing is that it goes on quicker than it goes off.  Time will make all the difference!

Opportunity

All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don't. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.” ―Robert F. Kennedy
