WoW, I’ve been ultra busy (especially since the Venus Rx which hit my 5th house).
Has it been days since I’ve last posted?! Whoops.
I’m doing a consultation sale with my regular clients so that has been keeping me busy.
I also got a new Blackberry phone — a few months overdue as my old one (3+ years old) finally died. Anyway, I’m now awake to the world of App’s! LOL And I’m trying to find a good Blackberry app for cycling GPS maps, preferably with turn-by-turn navigation. Am I dreaming? I want to also program my own route and maybe even be suggested one too. Speed, distance, and hill incline are nice-to-have too. So yes, I’ve been biking quite a bit. I lost over 8 pounds in 4 weeks and I think a lot of it was due to cycling because I had some take-out, outside, and restaurant food (though I stuck with meat and vege, skip the bread / high carb items). Oh and I finally got cycling specific rain/wind pants, a new huge bell, and rain / full finger bike gloves. Still need the fenders and back rack + bags for a tour I hope to do this summer – plus rain rides.
Saw the Snow White and Huntsman movie and I didn’t like it much — a forgettable movie except that I can’t seem to forget the cinematography was severely lacking in my opinion. And because of that, there appeared to be a lot of over-acting.
Knitting is coming along. I’m making a scarf and taking classes. This year my family and friends are getting scarves, hats, socks, and other nicely knitted items.
I lost almost 10 pounds in one month. I’m going for 12-13 a month.
Got a super fabulous hair treatment from my friend and hairstylist Roxanne Muir. If you’re in Toronto, hit her up!
Seeking Low Carbohydrate FOOD in Canada (all provinces), Toronto, Ontario, Quebec? Check out this Low Carb Grocer.
I’m currently re-structuring how and what I eat. My body needs less carbohydrates. It’s actually very efficient in storing carb’s (that turn into fat). This is great if I were on an island and needed to survive or was a hunter in medieval or cave man times but it’s not good in a more sedentary lifestyle.
In fact, I would say that fatter people (who got fat through carb’s) would be considered the fittest in the right environment. So it’s important to eat for your type AND environment.
I’m so excited to have found this grocer because a) they do FREE delivery in Ontario and Quebec when you spend over $100, b) the prices are about the same (if not the same) as in a normal grocery store and c) I know that everything in this store, I can eat!
I’ve lost 5 pounds in the first 2 weeks of this metabolic diet WITHOUT exercise (other than a bike ride and walk). That’s right, I have a desk job (work from home) and barely did any exercise and LOST weight!! Kind of scary in a way but I hope to continue to lose this sort of weight as my body is in ketosis.
At first, I thought there wasn’t a lot to eat but as I changed my eating habits and used this grocery shop — I am loving how I’m feeling, I am full, and I truly CAN eat a low carbohydrate diet without feeling as if I’m losing out on anything.
Check it out and start losing weight and be the thin person you actually are!!
Little known fact about me: I have a love of body modification (Virgo stellium in the 8th) through natural means. It gives me so much joy to know the body can do such wonderful things, on its own, if we just work with it and give it a little non-invasive assistance. Natural body modification, to me, is anything we do to naturally affect our body (including hair) but is not likely permanent — it must be maintained by its owner. Weight loss, is one body modification that Virgo and Scorpio (the 6th and 8th houses) can delight in.
I’m on a diet of protein and non-carb vegetables and no other carb’s. Cheating is having brussel sprouts and bread. Cheating would have used to been take-out, chips, and other naughty things! :-) Yes, this is progress!!
