Don’t obsess over your “diet”

I recently had a conversation with someone that I have been coaching .  She was talking about the “diet mentality” and how she had failed so many times before and didn’t want to wind up in the same position this time.  The tendency seems to be to go from one obsessive behavior such as carb loading and binging to obsession over ketone test strips and blood glucose readings.  I know this has been the case for me in the past.

Changes

Changes

A lot has changed over the last 10 months.  Last fall I was a messed up person.  My relationship with food was out of control and that was just a reflection of all the ways my life was out of control.   I went on a low carb diet and it changed my life.  I got my weight under control and a whole host of opportunities starting presenting themselves.  I wanted to become a runner.  I wanted to pack on some serious muscle.  I wanted to...

Summer Time!

While summer is not officially here, with temperatures topping 100 degrees where I live, we are in full swing.   Like I have posted in the past, I set out on my journey for very specific reasons.  I didn’t want to be out of shape, helpless and hopeless any more.  The problem is now, I have too much that I want to do and don’t know when I will get to squeeze it all in. One of my favorite books of all time is “Walden” by Henry...

Vitamin D as antibiotic: Self Experiment

Vitamin D as antibiotic: Self Experiment

Let me start off by saying that I have struggled with asthma my whole life.  I can remember that as a kid I would wake up at night and not be able to breathe.  If you have never had that feeling of struggling for breathe, let me just say that there is no feeling on earth like it.  The best way I can describe an asthma attack is that it is like trying to breathe through one of those coffee stirrer straws. Because of my genetic disposition...

Friday Weigh In: 185 and things to come

Friday Weigh In: 185 and things to come

  Today is April 1st and no fooling, I feel better than ever.  We finished the 30 day challenge, and while I didn’t hit my exact goals, I did have progress I didn’t expect.  I did a lot of running the last month.  Around 120 miles to be exact.  For someone that couldn’t do anything 6 months ago, I think that is pretty amazing. My weight today is 185.  When I set out, I said I would try to get to 180 and see how that felt....
