WIAW #33.. Ride the wave
How is everyone today. I have been a bad little blogger lately not really posting besides WIAW but really I am enjoying my summer. I will probably do a what I have been up to post this weekend and post in Monday to give you guys an update with some delicious foodie things involved as well But anyway today is WIAW and I am in full swing of my nutritional program to get myself better. After learning how bad I treated my body and what I have done to it I am really trying to move forward. Let me tell you it is not easy. It is one of the hardest struggles ever. It is like a constant fight inside me. One saying ok you need to heal your body and the other saying what are you crazy, how can you eat that!. It is not like I am eating cookies or anything. I am just eating a little more and more balanced. For this WIAW I am going to show you how I am going so far with my new program and how despite it all I keep pushing on and riding the wave.Thanks Jenn for hosting this wonderful meet up every week.
I wake up and start with supplements. I start with Adapten-ALL. This is supposed to help my adrenals since I have drove them to go crazy and focus only on my stress hormone. After this I do my hair and start to get ready then make breakfast. While making breakfast I have a probiotic, multi-vitamin and B12 supplement. Then I get to finally have breakfast.
After breakfast it was time for work sigh . Don’t get me wrong love the job but I wish I didn’t have to lol. So as I drive to work this is usually a time where I have to myself and the thoughts come and the emotional roller coaster comes with anxiety and depression. This drive gives me too much time to think. As I have mention I am seeing a therapist. Each week she leaves me with something. This week is Ride the wave.
Every time I am having feeling she wants me to ride them like one would ride a wave and don’t fight them and let them come. I think this is something that is hard for me. I tend to try and push the away but today I tried to ride the wave. As I drove when the feeling comes, the worry did I have to much for breakfast should I cut back at lunch, why do you care about all this? all these thoughts I ride the wave. I let them come and see what comes of them. Sometimes nothing, sometimes I feel worse and sometimes I learn something. But either way I figure it cannot hurt to try because obviously I cannot stop this way of thinking on my own.
Once I got to work it was all business. I was happy to have a little break for my snack.
A apple and 1tbs of almond butter. Not pictured because I try not to seem a little strange at work hehe.
When Lunch came it was nice. I like my relaxing time. It is strange I find meal times relaxing but spend so much time thinking about them.
After lunch some more work the home. It came very quickly. Once I left work the weather was so nice. I was very happy I had the top down on my car.
When I came home dinner was not ready yet so I picked on some watermelon. I was hungry.
Once dinner was ready I started to take my other supplements. I take 1/2tsp of fish old. I mix it with some orange juice because I cannot get that down by itself, Nasty does not describe. I also take another probiotic and a Vitamin D tablet.
After Dinner the pops and I went for a Bike Ride. I got to ride my new bike. Now I loved my old bike but it is a little hard to pedal fast on it because I am tall and have big legs. So I started to shop around a look for bikes. So many are darn expensive! I went to a local bike shop and saw this great bike that I liked and the guy was so helpful and gave me a great discount. I love my bike shop. They are nice and don’t cheat you and by buying from them I support local business. It’s called Bay Street Bicycle. If you are in the area I recommend going there.
check out my new bike! It drives like a dream. I am so happy with it.
After our ride I came home and had a post workout shake and watched some TV and relaxed. Doctors orders is for me to do some relaxing. I did have my problems but I rode the wave. Yes I was worried about how much I consumed today but I am trying to push past that and look at the bigger picture. I think I am making some progress don’t you think?
Happy WIAW. Until Next time -Ashley
