Well NOT really a DAILY Routine...but a beginning of the day routine. I have been able to stick with my B-Complex and/or B-12 intake since Saturday so far. Since it's winter in the snow belt I have been including a squirt of Vitamin D Spray. All of which are part of the MyKind Organics Line...all whole food, plant based, vegan vitamins!
My goal is to go a solid month and hopefully longer this time around. A Morning Routine will help me with this. I figure if I am overly pushy about giving my dog his meds - why can't I do the same for me? LOL
I have been trying to sleep differently the last several nights. I'm usually a side sleeper and I think this is catching up with me. I'm trying my hardest to lay on my back now. So far - so good.
I'm still not real good about daily breakfasts. That's something I still need to incorporate, work on, and stick with. The last couple of months I have not been real good at eating breakfast or lunch. I know that is really bad. Then I pig out at dinner to make up for the rest of the day. I will snack during the day sometimes if I have something to snack on but it's not the best in terms of healthy snack sometimes. Because of all of this I have gained weight back. This may or may not have anything to do with my aches and pains but it's probably best if I try and do better about it.
I've also started incorporating Chlorella back into my daily grind. Mostly Mondays thru Fridays - because I have them on my work desk. I will probably explain this more down the road. In the meantime I am taking those again, too!
Herb intake! I've upped it! I thought about blogging about it as I drank them if I was in front of the computer which I may still do but for now - yesterday and today - I have been enjoying Brain Booster from Urbal Tea and Ginger & Lemon Myrtle from Lupicia.
The Brain Booster from Urbal Tea includes: Gotu Kola, Peppermint, Ginko, Rosemary, Sage, Eleuthero, Parsley, Lemon Balm, Elderberry, Hibiscus, Apple, Blueberries, Currants, Cornflower, Raisins.
By doing this I am also cutting back on my caffeine. Instead of 8 or more cups of highly caffed tea everyday I would like to stay to ONE or NONE to see what happens.
I found a way to do a little in more of the way of exercise in doors at work while in the winter months...STAIRS. Simple enough. I think I might tuck away a place for yoga during lunch soon, too! I'm usually the only one in my office. Time will tell.
I also picked up a few new bras. I hate talking about those but I will since it's a change I am making. I will give it a few days or weeks before reporting my findings.
So far many of these changes are for the better. I would like to work on attitude, inner peace, stress, anxiety, and muscle pain more, too!
I've also been feeling a salad kick coming on! I have been eating more of them than usual but usually when I get in this mode...I will go for a month and eat HUGE salads at least once a day.
I want to thank Christine and Hilary for their comments, encouragement, and support! Keep on me! I need it!
