A few days ago, my sister were talking via text when she sent me this:
I created this blog because I love to write but unfortunately I seemed to be suffering Continue reading “Changes.”



My name is ā€¦ā€¦.. and I am an alcoholic. Those words serve as an acknowledgement that one has a problem,Ā hasĀ owned up to it and is ready to start working on changing destructive behaviours.

One of my favourite shows on TV is A&Eā€™s Intervention. On the show, people with severe psychological disorders shows the world what it is like to be addicted to destructive behaviours/substances. At the beginning of the show, the person profiled states their name and announces their addiction. One of the powerful things to see is a person so steeped in their addiction and denial that they cannot even say those simple words – I am an/a/addicted to… Because saying those words means acknowledging oneā€™s addictions,Ā and having to address the issue.Ā Until you can truly acknowledge your addiction, you cannot address the problem Continue reading “Relapse.”

Lunch 09/07/12

I typed this up on Friday but the sleep angel carried me off to her lair before I had a chance to post it. I had a very busy weekend and did not get to make my lunch for today (09/09/12) so I had cereal for breakfast, 2 cups of popcorn, 2 eggs and a veggie personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Working on a better lunch for today.

It is almost 5 am. I am tired, sleepy, my feet hurt but noooo I have to force my eyes open and blog. This is all part of my mission to become more disciplined in all facets of my life: blog every day or every other day. How I came up with that theory, I don’t know. Anywho, lets get to it my bed awaits. Random: I have a burn mark between my thumb and pointer finger. It looks like a smiley face and I find it extremely distracting as I type.

Lunch 09-06-12

This was my lunch today at work. As previously explained, I have determined that my eating style runs more along snacking than 3 sit down meals during the day. I am notorious for going out and buying ā€œhealthyā€ foods but not eating them before they go bad, so I decided to work with what was in my fridge and pantry. In the past I found that munching on Honey Roasted cashews throughout the day quelled my hunger and so that went into Box 1. Greek Yoghurt and a teaspoon of Agave went into Box 2. I am quite aware that Agave may just be sugar advertised Continue reading “Lunch 09-06-12”

I will not give up!

About two months ago, I decided to take my health more seriously. It has not been a walk in the park I tell ya. I worry about eating too little or eating too much. My biggest worry so far has been the equilibrum issues I have been having when I ride my motorcycle and that is no bueno. I am not able to fathom the thought of never being able to ride again and so I have to either figure out what is causing those issues and/or start eating properly.
I am not a fan of diets: I believe in eating “normally” in moderation. Continue reading “I will not give up!”

My journey to health!

As I take this journey to a better, slimmer, fitter, deserving of the Air Force me, I am amazed at the realizations I make along the way. When I cut my hair and decided to go natural, I never took the time to enjoy the journey. From the TWA – Teeny Weeny Afro, to trying out different styles on the growing hair, I was in such a hurry to have long curly natural hair that I never got to appreciateĀ each phaseĀ properly. This time with my health, I am determined to do better. It is not about the number, it is about the journey to health and what I learn on my way to my goal of a healthier me. Since I am doing such a rotten job at journalling lately, I look forward to coming back to this blog and reliving the journey. The two things I have learned so far…

1. I am a snacker. Continue reading “My journey to health!”

Paleo. Primal. Caveman.

My head is reeling. Paleo. Primal. Caveman. All words usedĀ to describe a lifestyle choice whereby you eat like man did in the paleolithic ages. Man at that time was a hunter-gatherer and if he did not find it or kill it, he did not eat it. Agriculture brought about the end of these times as man settled down and began eating from stationary food sources. It is the belief of Paleo practitioners that our bodies have not evolved enough to digest the crap we are now filling our bodies with and sinceĀ man in those days was probably the healthiestĀ of all ages,Ā if we eat like they ate, we should follow the same trend. There is still so much to learn but I haveĀ come to a couple of conclusions Continue reading “Paleo. Primal. Caveman.”
