Diet and Health

Well, here I am again. Every winter I give in to holiday food, and sometime between Christmas and spring, I haul myself back together.

Three months ago - probably two months ago - I was building stuff, organizing, making things. I was exercising daily, walking without pain, sleeping well. Then I started eating cookies and raisin toast. Now I can barely haul my aching body around the house. Last night I slept from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am and couldn't go back to sleep.


Status at this time:

Pain in hip
Enlarged knuckles
Coughing (yeast infection)
No ambition
Poor thinking and worse memory
Can't sleep more than three hours at a time
Frequent trips to bathroom

Stage One:
Get metabolism up:
    May have carb in morning.
    Exercise! Twice a day.
    Take caffeine between noon and 3:00 pm.
    Chocolate only between 3:00 and 5:00 pm.
Control sugar:
    List all non-sweet foods I like and eat constantly.
    Make up stuff ahead so that there is always something to snack on.
Improve nutrition:
    Eat more vegetables; at least 1 cooked, 1 raw, and 1 salad per day.
    Find more ways of adding in Akea and Athletic Greens.
    Take more calcium and baking soda.
