liveit360 Posted October 28, 2013 Share Posted October 28, 2013 Hello I will be using this journal to post my food and exercise and sleep habits for the next three months. I am tired of the ups and downs that my food habits have left me with and am ready to eat in a way that I know will give me the best life now and down the road. I chose the long time period of three months because I want to establish more solid habits and be able to forget about some of the bad ones I have slipped into. I love playing with my little ones now and never want to have something in the way of me being there for them. I am also in a career that involves motivating people and I know how much easier (and enjoyable) my job is when I am feeling good! Sometimes, I feel like I just need sugar because the boost it gives my brain. But just like a drug, this sugar boost isn't sustainable and has serious consequences! So there it is. I will be avoiding gluten and soy for sure. I know that eggs, some dairy, sugar, peanuts, and corn are inflammatory for me right now so I will avoid those in general. I am ok with the occassional glass of wine, legumes, brown rice protein powder, and occassional piece of GF bread or pasta. These are things that I may have once or twice a month and don't find them to be disruptive to my health. This is what I would like to see change: Consistent sleep pattern ( in bed by 10 and up by 7 to pray and exercise before the girls wake at 8 -- seems like plenty of sleep but I haven't been waking rested and many times get woken up by a child or my husband) Consistent energy! (I have been hitting a severe energy drop mid-day) Lose and maintain (about 8 lbs) Feel fit (able to exercise and play on a moments notice) Clear skin Stable moods (feel social and ready for even the last minute plans) Protect my eyesight, my blood vessel health, brain and memory, and my joints Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
