Houston, We Have a Problem

My body does not like a large influx of carbs/sugar. I been noticing this for a while now. It started right after my initial fast when I drank some beer and had awful fast food cravings. I don't think I blogged about that day, but I did talk about it on Facebook. Basically, I felt … Continue reading Houston, We Have a Problem

What a Difference a Day Makes

I took my final DHEA supplement on Wednesday morning to try and combat my increasing blood pressure, which is documented in the blog Back in Control… Somewhat. Here’s a table of my blood pressure values on Wednesday compared to Thursday and Friday (format systolic/diastolic/pulse): Wednesday Thursday Friday (thus far) 125/83/82 120/81/77 111/64/72 153/106/72 121/87/72 128/85/76 … Continue reading What a Difference a Day Makes

Back in Control… Somewhat

The weekend was challenging, but I started to get back on track, as best I could, given my plans. I guess I technically didn't have to eat that Movie Theatre Popcorn over the weekend; regardless, I've had three "good" days in a row (good meaning less than 50g of net carbs). My weight has recovered, … Continue reading Back in Control… Somewhat

Happy Birthday to Me

Thursday was my 44th birthday and it ended up being a three-day, poor-eating marathon.  That was after starting this 90-days struggling nutritionally.  My blood pressure has also gone up.  I haven't isolated the problem yet, but my suspicion is that it's because I started DHEA supplements again.  I just can't say that with any certainty … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me

Clarified Focus

For this 90-days, I chose to use the InnerGuide planner and it was really an eye-opening experience. As I mentioned in My 2nd 90-Day Goals, I thought I knew what my goals would be before I started the planner, but they took a different path after I did. Now that I am a week into … Continue reading Clarified Focus

Cauliflower Fried Rice

I shared my disappointment with Pei Wei's cauliflower fried rice in this morning's blog called Look Before You Eat – Pei Wei.  I thought it was only appropriate to share the recipe I used when I made cauliflower fried rice at home. Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe I made a couple of modifications to the recipe when … Continue reading Cauliflower Fried Rice

Look Before You Eat – Pei Wei

I heard a while back that Pei Wei was now serving cauliflower rice and I’ve been interested in trying it. They also have a cauliflower fried rice, which sounded great! I’ve made cauliflower fried rice before, so it sounded like a best of both world type restaurant item. I figured it would be high and … Continue reading Look Before You Eat – Pei Wei

What Leading By Example Is Not…

I realized during the last week of my previous challenge that Month 3 seemed better than Month 2, I was actually less consistent in my eating behavior. I just was able to recover well from my poor choices. Despite that, I desired to end the challenge on a positive notes and did a great job … Continue reading What Leading By Example Is Not…

My 2nd 90-Day Goals

Now that I've finished my first Three Months!!, it's time to start looking at the next phase of my transformation.  I bought a different planner for my second 90-day challenge and did all of the introductory soul searching the last few days of the previous challenge. I had a pretty good idea of where I … Continue reading My 2nd 90-Day Goals

Three Months!!

I am so pleased with my three month progress! It's amazing how much improvement I've seen in such a short amount of time. I'm certainly not where I want to be, but I've done enough to stay motivated my next 90-days!!  Two blogs posted in one day - this is a new record!! I had … Continue reading Three Months!!
