|« Farewell to Heidi||You know that you're toxic »|
I've recieved so many nice comments of encouragement about teaching and politics. Thank you all very much for your kind words. I don't have much time to write but I did want to mention two things.
1) I was sick this past week (plus those monthly cramps, guess misery really does love company) but didn't take one day off of work. I thank the Blood Type Diet for this. I never broke out in fever or had to stay in bed, unlike a very unhappy husband I know..... I just wasn't feeling good in general and had a VERY runny nose for 2 days. (and no, I didn't have any AVOID milk products.....) The day I did start to get sick was after not having the cleansing lemon-water for 2 days. (There REALLY is a conection between your bowels and your health - fascinating) I'm also thanking my vitamins that I've been taking every morning: 1 Vitamin C (500mg), 1 B complex "50" (Trader Joe's) and the rest are by Dr. D, 1 Helix, 1 Quercetin, 1 Hawthorn, and 1 AB Deflect. I'm amazed that I didn't get really sick. Just a little tired one day and barely warm and bad cramps at the begining of the period but, no sore throat, no fever, no chills, no sick to my stomach every 10 minutes. AMAZING. I've been more prone to sickness this year 1) working with children and 2) my O nonnie is ALWAYS catching something. I also took a serving of ARA Larch and an extra C vitamin for a few days.....amazing.....if your an O or other blood type - please check the books to see what's right for you.....this is just what's been working for me as an AB.
2) I think my cramps came due to a lack of balanced diet. (I haven't had cramps my last 2 periods, thanks to BTD I think) My being a little under the weather made me tired and VERY lazy so, VERY little cooking got done this week. And no, I haven't been going to McDonalds for 5 double cheeseburgers - I've been compliant but,....not very balanced. You know, just fixing the easy stuff like frozen compliant pizza and rice and bread and more rice. We did go grocery shopping yesterday and, as I cleaned out the fridge, I think I relaized what I was missing. Not grains.....I've been eating a lot of grain. Good grains and some fruit preserves and some meat basically and even some fish, earlier this week. At first I thought it was a veggie problem but even after adding in more veggies the past 2 days, something's been missing. It finally hit me as I was cleaning. Tofu and beneficial dairy's. I discovered a tub of tofu in the back of the fridge and remembered how I hadn't fixed tofu in over a week! And it's one of the key elements to AB's staying healthy! There was also no yogurt, low fat sour cream, or good cheeses in the house. That B side of us needs that dairy and I've been neglecting it. We've also been out of eggs for 3 days and there's been no fresh fruit for 4 days.....not a good thing!!!! So, I've been feeling ok but, once I had an organic peach yogurt yesterday....it really hit the spot.
So, to answer a question, yes, the slice of ezekiel bread or millet cereal I eat as I rush out is fine but I'm usually quite hungary by lunch. I always feel much better when I have turkey or egg with some grain for breakfast (and beneficial grapefruit juice....yummy!) Time's just not on my side for the most part.....in fact......I need to leave in 10 minutes and I'm not dressed yet!!! Yeeps! Better go. But, just because I don't have time, doesn't mean I can't be healthy.....but a more balanced meal is always HELATHIER and it fuels me throughout the day. Remember, try to keep a helathy snack on you....it really helps when you get the munchies so you're not tempted by the AVOID laden vending machines/ local deli once you're on the job.
