The healthy eating post went well! I’m happy to report that I’ve followed many of your suggestions in the last few days and feel…sick as a mangy dog. But I’m sure that will pass, so to speak. It’s probably just toxins being released into my system for elimination. In the next few days, I will list many of the great menu and healthy breakfast/lunch/dinner suggestions you shared and we can all evacuate our toxins together!
No really, it’s been wonderful. This morning, I had egg whites with veggies scrambled in coconut oil (good for you!), stuffed into whole wheat lavash, and accompanied by a peanut butter kefir smoothie. Then I pooed a mack truck. Those crazy toxins!
I’ve also upped my intake of calcium (with vitamin K for better absorption…I am taking something called Osteo Density), a “female” supplement (named “RAW”) (I’m not even going to comment on that, this is about health, not about my dirty, dirty mind because of all the toxins), and Udo’s 3-6-9 (has ALL the Omegas, perfect for obsessive-compulsives like me, because why would us loons stop with just 3?).
In addition, and somewhat not related at all, is that I think I found my holy grail skincare regimen. So now my outsides are as clean as my insides! I found the perfect cleanser, serum and face mask by Googling “congested, hormonal, dry but oily, sucky, crappy skin that looks 10 years older than its owner” (true story) and I found this site. It doesn’t sell “branded” products per se, but rather “formulations” that are sold to estheticians, make-up artists, and skincare professionals. I ordered samples of many of the “best-selling” products (totaling $21.75) so I could try before I buy and I’ve had a surprisingly happy experience that didn’t result in hives, pus, or peeling flesh. I absolutely love not having to explain to people that my nose and chin are 15 years old, but my cheeks and eyes are 87 and a half. Now I just average the two skin ages and come up with a perfectly respectable “51.”
I figure that with regular use, I should get down to 41 in skincare years.
This healthy stuff is great! Pretty soon, I’ll look my real age.
