Remember a few weeks ago I was telling you how tired I have been for months? I could hardly drag myself out of bed at 6:30 or seven. Well, guess what!? I feel really great now. I just realized how clear headed I am and energized while driving to work today. Here is what I have been doing:
1. Go to bed at 9:00 pm 9:30 at the latest
2. Get up between 5 and 6:00 am
3. Follow The Zone program
4. Take fish oil (gel caps--the liquid stuff is nasty!)
5. B complex supported with extra B-12 and B-6
6. Pilates, weights, and some walking--at least 5 days per week
So that's my routine. It's doable, it's something I can do everyday of my life. I feel really good. In the two weeks that I've done the Zone, I feel like a new person. Dr. Sears has a pretty good philosophy about insulin and food addictions. I am pretty sure I have an insulin problem. he talks about using food as "medication" to correct a condition. Use food the right way and it will heal you. I don't have ANY cravings now. That is the best part for me. As you know I am a Chocolate ADDICT....THERE. I've said it. You girls know what I mean...and some of you guys also! This plan makes sense to ME. It seems to be something I can stick to and make a lifestyle. I've tried a lot of other things and they either didn't fit my lifestyle, were too complicated--eat this today, but not tomorrow--or they were WAY too low in carbs or calories.
So now that my plan is in place, I can go for it again! Woohoo! Lynda girl...get your walking shoes...I'm right behind you!
