Two Years

It’s been 2 years since covid hit us. Not much has changed. I got vaxed and booster. Family is mixed. Half are vaxed and the other half is lost. I wont go into details. You all  have one of those types in the family. There is a waste of time trucker convoy across Canada today. It’s not going to make a difference or change anything.

Let’s talk about me. I did a bunch of tests this week. Blood work, urine and stool plus heart check. All is good. My cholesterol has gone down. yippee! Just need to get my Vit. D up. Its always so low.  I pulled my lumbar muscles. Been in a lot of pain. It’s slowly getting better.

Food is boring. LOL, never thought I would say that! I can eat just about anything I want now. I don’t worry if its good or bad. I enjoy it. I do want to lose 10 lbs, because the Doctor said it would be better from my joints. I will do it. First I need my back to heal up then I can slowly start walking again and do some strength exercises. I will lose the 10 by the end of this year.

 

Fitness

I have been trying to decide what I can do for exercise. Something that I can enjoy doing. I am thinking weight lifting, Tai-chi, maybe yoga. Simple, easy on my body. I don’t need to be all sweaty and worn out.  I bought some resistance bands and am using those. 10 mins a day to start. I need to go slow since it’s been a while. I will add 10 mins more next week.

Changing up my foods too. Going to try to have more veggies. Not easy to do since they aggravate my IBS. So I really need to be careful and not over do it or eat the wrong veggies. Maybe a veggie soup? Need to find some easy soup recipes. Salad sounds yummy but only a few times a week or its to much veggie.

Tweaking Acne!

I am tweaking my blog. Adding and testing some stuff. So you might see some changes. It’s been a long time since  build a blog. My last one was done so long ago that now everything has changed on how to build one. I had to go look up what “shortcode” meant. Yeah, I didn’t know either!

Anyways, Something I have noticed since I changed my eating habits. My skin is breaking out! I look like a pubescent teenager. I think I know what is causing it. Most likely it’s from the milk. Too much dairy will do that to me. If it’s not that, then I don’t know. I had a fudge ice cream bar last night. It didn’t taste all that great. I do like Chapman’s ice cream but these were blah. Good thing there are none left in the box. Hubby ate them all! LOL

Dinner was a bowl of Ramen noodles with fried shrooms and snap peas added. Yum. I used to eat a lot of nuts and dark chocolate as my evening snack. I had some last night and I really didn’t enjoy it. Is that because I’m not on keto? The foods I was eating on keto are now foods that I don’t crave. I still enjoy dark chocolate but I don’t eat it daily anymore. Just little things that I am noticing.

Headaches

Do you ever wake up in the morning with a banger of a headache? I do. About 4 times a month. Don’t know why it happens. I wonder if it’s cause I didn’t drink enough water the day before? Menopause? Ah, who knows. All I know is that it f**king hurts. I could probably take enough Tylenol to knock out a horse and it still wouldn’t make a difference. Only thing that helps is to go to bed and close my eyes.

While I am dealing with that shit, I am also dizzy. Dizziness is part of my everyday life. I had a neck injury 20 years ago that caused permanent inner ear damage. The doctor called it Vestibulopathy. Look it up if you want to know more. For the most part, I have learned to life with it and accept my fate.

Moving on… I stepped on the scale today. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought for sure I would have gained a bunch of weight from all those tiny cheerios, hahaha. But not so! Overall in the last 2 weeks I put on 3 lbs. I’m ok with that. I have noticed my jeans are a bit tight. No problem! Digging out my fat jeans…LOL

Remember ladies, fat jeans are your friends!
