I’m glad to see January 2015 go. It was a craptacular month and I don’t think I could easily handle a second month of it. An annoying reason I hated the month is the setback. Grr, the setback. But, January is over and February is here. I’m ready for it.
I tried to post this yesterday, but the January Kick Ass continued for an extra day. My saved pots disappeared three times. I was not amused.
My goals this month are to get my eating back on track and learn more about what ails me. Research might drive some people crazy, but it helps me feel like I have more control. The Fibromyalgia quirks and tummy issues don’t bother me as much since I have an idea what to expect. I hope that makes sense. I wonder sometimes if it does. If it doesn’t, I blame Fibro Brain. 🙂
And speaking of research, I picked up this goodie a few days ago.
Ricki Heller‘s blog is one of my favorite stops and I know the advice in this book in my hands will make a huge difference. I’ll share more about the book and recipes here and in my Examiner column. If you need sugar-free, gut-healing whole food recipes, take a look.
I was advised to consider the possibility of candida overgrowth a little over a year ago. I took the assessment and scored in the top range before I completed the whole thing. Oy. Overachiever, I am. These recipes work with my eating plan. I just have to tweak things here and there.
For fitness, I’m starting another round of 21 Day Fix starting on February 8. 21 Day Fix Extreme drops today, but I am not ready for that one. Both 21DF and 21DFX are designed to get you on track with 30 minute workouts (yes), an easy clean eating plan, and quick results. All moves include a modifier front and center and only minimum equipment is required. I’ll use resistance bands and my favorite exercise mat. If you’d like more information on either program, give me a shout or visit my store.
Do you have specific plans or goals for February? If you need or want support and encouragement, give me a shout. If you’re following a different program, it’s all good. This is all about support for whatever your goals are. Swing by Facebook and say hi.
Until next time, be good to yourself. Remember that you are not alone and that you are your competition.
