Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

MyFitnessPal, Kombucha And Weight Loss

I've been experiencing achiness, redness and swollen joints (mainly my fingers). However, the pain started creeping into my ankles and toes along with muscle pain. I knew that I needed to see a DR to get tested for Lyme's. But also with going to the dr's office meant 'stepping on the scale'.  The last time I weighed this much, I was pregnant with my son.

That's where I've Come Back to MyFitnessPal came into reality. I wanted needed to starting focusing on what I am eating - not so much as calories but the food.

I went to the DR a week later and weighed in .... 118lbs. I asked the nurse to please make a note for the DR not to mention it. (FYI I'm 4'10" so that weight is above my 'normal' weight range). First of all, my son was with me and I didn't want a 'weight' talk in front of my impressionable 4 year old. And second, well second, I just wasn't in the mood to deal with someone bugging me about my weight. I'm smart enough to know that I need to drop some pounds for my health.

Thankfully, nothing about my weight was mentioned. My test results came back negative, but on the flip side, nothing was 'resolved' which is frustrating.

I'm probably looking at an elimination diet, and I was looking for a probiotic that wasn't from dairy. I found Kombucha. I've never had it before but was intrigued.



The first one I tried was Grape Chia. I've moved on to Multi-Green, Trilogy and Gingerade. 

I am in love. I like the fizz. The taste at first can be a little strong, but I honestly felt a difference from the first day in how I felt. And I plan to continue drinking it.



I've also increased the amount of water that I drink as I'm trying to flush out my system to try to help with any inflammation. 

And since that DR visit I have lost 2lbs. I'm still above my 'normal' range, but I'm working my way back to a healthier weight.




I'm curious to see how all of this works out. Stay tuned.
