I’m so sorry for being MIA the last few months. I have been struggling to keep everything a float and a lot of my goals have been dropped due to the craziness of today’s lifestyle with Covid-19 it really has taken a toll on my physically and emotionally.
So here is to catching up. I am now in my third semester of class passed my second semester with a 4.0 GPA. Third semester has been a bit hard. I am back living away from home and the class schedules have been a little all over the place while the college figured out how to make our lab classes smaller. I have been having a hard time studying, my memory has been foggy in two of my classes but I think it’s more due to the material and how it is presented then brain fog.
I have been more sore due to lack of movement. I just started working out a regular 3x a week. I tried a few beach body programs and although they can be great for some people I find myself bored very fast. I am currently trying an exercise plan from fitplan. It’s three times a week and I can do them at home or at the gym with very minimal equipment and it doesn’t leave me completely out of breath and I can actually keep up with it.
The last two weeks I’ve have been able to get back into a reasonable sleeping schedule. I have also found a way to increase my fluid intake. I drink a glass of water, chicken broth and then my smoothie and have now added green tea in the morning as well.
I will be going under a lot of different changes in the next few months as well. I have decided to start seeing a naturopath/hollistic Dr. When I went to see her I had a few suspicions as to what might be going on within my body. I am not a doctor but I’ve been learning a lot in the last few years and have been seeing a lot of signs of problems in my body but I wasn’t sure.
I will be going through an extensive blood test, possibly a hormonal urine test and going on the AIP ( auto-immune paleo) diet for the next 3 months before starting to reintroduce food into my diet to see if I will get any reactions to it. She suspects I may have hormonal issues due to being moody, irregular periods and sugar cravings to name a few. I am also starting to take probiotics because based on my BM’s I may be having issues in my bowels. I am also taking magnesium. Fun fact: there are a few types ( I think 2) magnesium and each one affects your body in a different way.
I will try to blog about the AIP diet in my next post which will hopefully be at some point in the next month if I can find the time and energy.
Now go forth and find yourselves some spoons.
