I am a Superstar and I Want to Inform Everyone of This Fact.

Well well well…..how quickly things can change.  Going from feeling like a crappiest human on earth to flying high!  I’ve made a lot of changes and had a lot of help along the way, but the results are outstanding!  Outstanding I say!

Let’s start with some of the holy crap improvements I’ve accomplished in the past (almost) 4 weeks:

-lost 11 pounds (always the thing everyone wants to know, so we’ll start there)

-have so much energy I may be bordering on manic (not 100% sure on that definition, but this is the word that comes to mind)

-started going to the gym again (having all this extra energy certainly doesn’t hurt in that department)

-completely kicked the sugar habit.  Not an ounce and no fake replacements (i.e. sweeteners).  I am particularly proud of this point.

-dropped all of the ingredients that were causing me trouble; wheat especially

-signed up for a education program which may lead me to a new career!

-organized may areas of my home and organized my online life

-And I an feeling on top of the world…..like I can do anything.  How often do you feel that way?

I can say that the biggest factor in all of the above changes were the multiple books I read (listened too actually – I think I mentioned audiobooks are the way to go to cram in information when you are leading a busy life).  It also happened to be the order I ready everything.  One led to another and expended on some concepts from the book previously.  In case anyone reading this (is there anyone reading???) is interested, here is what I listened to/read in the order I did it in:

-the Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker (see my last blog post for some more info on that one) Link here

Eating on the Wild side by Jo Robinson.  I had a hard copy of this book from the library but now feel the need to go out and buy a hard copy to keep for myself.  It’s a great reference book for cooking and preparing food and there’s no way I can remember everything.

The Wellness Project by Pam Krauss – ironically very similar to the “journey” I was planning to be on as well.

Eat Dirt by Dr Josh Axe. LOVED this book and I learned so much about how f-ed up we all are in our current environement.

The Mind Gut Connection by Emeran Mayer. A little more science-y, but still worth the listen

The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes – read this book and you will never want to eat sugar again!

And somewhere in there I also browsed through a book on Sugar Addiction and read //rcm-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/cm?ref=tf_til&t=thedevilmadem-20&m=amazon&o=15&p=8&l=as1&IS1=1&asins=0316338834&linkId=3f6f2967c69173cd7906a6e8125050f5&bc1=FFFFFF&lt1=_top&fc1=333333&lc1=0066C0&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Eat Fat, Get Thin my Mark Hyman.

So there you have it if you want to cram some knowledge into your brain like I did.  It totally changed the way I think.  I’ll share more details about this, but gotta tuck the kiddos into bed now and I am ready for an early night tonight. Zzzzzz.
