Step 3

I know it’s been a while, but I haven’t really had a whole lot of time to check in.

I edited another book and my daughter is taking Taekwondo twice a week, gymnastics once a week and girl scouts, so I’ve been running her around a bit. All while working 9-5. Oh and we are also learning to knit and crochet.

So since my last post
the anti resolution, I have continued, albeit slowly, to get healthier. Homemade Deoderant still going, organic vitamins, probiotics and supplements, and I have been drinking the Apple cider vinegar tonic daily. I haven’t really exercised much. I tried planking in the mornings, once a day for like 3 days but then my daughter decided to be a problem getting up on time and there went that.

Thanks to the government forcing me to get health care, I finally went to the Dr after 3 years. He applauded my healthy choices and gave me a suggestion for the Deoderant once summer comes if it isn’t as effective.

I have also discovered Trader Joe’s grocery store. Their store brand products are non gmo and don’t contain any of the taboo ingredients that I’ve been trying to avoid, like the high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated everything. The breakfast cereals are no more expensive than the name brands in the regular grocery store. I am going to try to shop there for as much stuff as I can. I am still planning on plantings, but the weather here has been so wonky lately, and my time limited, that I haven’t started yet.

I have replaced white sugar with the raw turbinado sugar as well and I’ve traded in McDonald’s lunch for a bowl of oatmeal most days. Sometimes I bring leftovers or a sandwich from home, and other times I breakdown and walk across the lot for McDonald’s.

The weather is starting to get better, fingers crossed that it stays, I will be trying to take a break during work to walk, even if it’s just around the outside of the building a couple times after lunch, it’s better than nothing. Maybe I can try getting in the planking habit at a different time of day.
