Just a quick, quick blog today. Pineapple and homemade berry waffles for breakfast. I really like combining buckwheat flour with soy flour- then adding ground flax seed, ground walnuts, etc. Leftover waffles make great snacks.
I hit the morning trails early today. It was so beautiful - running through the woods toward the sun. Rivers are still a bit flooded, and half of my run was a swampy 'hike.' It was a great day to get just a little bit lost, and then run opposite the sun to get back to my car! It was also empowering to realize that I can get a little lost but always find my way back. Life resembles my morning run.
It's time to really look at the genotype diet once again. I would like my 0 blood type son to start eating meat for breakfast again. He prefers crunchy oats and cranberries, which is great - neutral with dried fruit. I enjoy the convenience of a neutral box of cereal, and I don't mind because sooner or later, he will get hungry and he will eat my waffles! Kids really do need to choose their food, and I need to buy wisely.
I just found out via a doctor's x-ray that I have arthritis in one knee. ARRRGgggg. I knew the ankle joint was pronating (rotating inward), I knew the hip joint was slightly off due to pain in the SI joint, and I knew that it's common for the knee joint to suffer if the hip joint and the ankle are off kilter. But I did not expect arthritis. I actually bought glucosime with chondritin awhile ago, but wasn't serious about taking it.
It may be time to stop cheating. Normally I eat well during the week, and let things slide during the weekend. I will be looking at those arthritis protocols once again. Then again, I may still cheat just a little bit. Goodness, I am human!
I am a A secretor. I am the eldest daughter of three children, and I was blessed with a mother and father who loved me dearly. It was their sacrifice that shaped who I am today.
My father was a self employed businessman while my mother made it her number one priority to raise her children to the best of her ability. I am not quite certain how they achieved it, but somehow they helped me become a determined young woman who truly believes "life is what you make it."
I attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. During that time, I studied the German Language with the intentions of becoming a translator. As with all college students, I changed my mind. I then decided that studying psychology would be more fascinating. At that point, I wanted to become a scientist who would specialize in the study of ESP. Alas, I soon realized my mathematical abilities were somewhat lacking and settled for a B.A. in General Psychology.
"Officer of the day" is the job title I held at the Janet Wattles Mental Health Clinic. Within two years, I decided that the job description just didn't fit my personality. After floundering around at different jobs for awhile, I fell into something creative and wonderful. I became a "Retail Sales Consultant" within a large banking corporation. It held my interest because it demanded creativity, self direction, and a production orientated personality.
Several years later, the position was eliminated due to a banking merger. At that point, I had been married for five years and my husband wanted to start our family. Luckily for them, I agreed!
Two kids and one very large dog later, I have to laugh. While I was working outside of the home, I used to joke "I can make food or I can make money. Which do you want?" You see, I was a terrible cook (possibly the worst in the world.) Now, as a concerned mother who cares about the health of her family, all I do is cook! And I owe it all -- to Dr. D'Adamo.
