Ivy.jpg

 

Ivy is back!!

Invigorate - Walking - Every day, outdoors if possible

             - Work in garden or something creative at least once a week
Variety - Yoga - 2 days a week                              
Yearning - Homework - Want to finish school so I can move on to better things...want to start this AFAA course that I signed up for last challenge two challenges ago and see where that leads

 

Doing the Daily Dare PVP, hope to get bronze again, I tried for silver last time but too much of it was beyond my ability.

 

So much happened last challenge...my wife lost her job, we're getting the house ready to rent out and going to get an RV Trailer to live in (can't wait!! I'm so excited!!) We do have a lot of work to do and a little time to do it, hopefully by the time I finish my course we will be ready to go back to Florida! We are tearing up the carpet, laying laminate flooring, finishing the kitchen, cleaning up the yard, getting the outside painted and some minor fixes, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something in here...as well as looking for a truck to finance for a reasonable amount (because her's is too small) and trailer to purchase within our budget...

 

My oldest son is getting married in June - I make candles and am doing the centerpieces for them

My nephew is graduating high school in June - Which means I have to deal with my family, Goddess give me patience because if I have strength I'll hurt someone

We plan on being out and the house rented July 1st

 

Not happy with weight loss right now, it seems no matter what I try nothing is happening...I don't 'cheat' or go over calories that much or that often, I stay in an activity range that should have me losing weight, but I'm not, doesn't seem to matter what I do one way or the other, I stay in the same 5 lb range....I'm wondering if it's the fact that I don't have a gall bladder, which is about the only thing I haven't looked at since my hormones are dealt with, sleep is as good as it's ever been, and it seems to be about the time that it was taken out was when I started having trouble, which was the same time I went Paleo. Going to try a couple of things this go around and see if it helps, Ox bile is one of those things, if anyone has any suggestions or has dealt with the same problem I'd love to hear if you found a solution!

Interested in hearing what people say in regards to this. I had my gall bladder taken out back in '93 and the only thing I noticed was that my system didn't like fast food nearly as much as it did before (in hindsight that's a good thing).

 

Following along of course <g>.

I also have a lot of trouble losing weight... I gain and lose the same 10 lbs over and over... and I don't have a gallbladder either. I have been gluten-free for over a year. I am going Paleo this challenge to see if maybe there are other foods I am having issues with. I am hoping that helps. Good on you for doing the daily dares. I looked at them, and slowly backed away! ;)

So I found this article that might be interesting to you. As a rule, I hate it when people try to sell stuff while giving legitimate information, however I've found multiple sources that do point to beetroot being good for gallbladder health. Don't know how applicable that is once your gallbladder is gone though. 

 

I'll do some more digging tonight because I am a nerd and love to find things out like this.

Great challenge twin!  I know you have a lot going on.  Wish I was closer to help out.  

As far as weight loss this time around I am going to mess with my calorie/carbs and go really low a couple days a week to shake things up.  I will let you know.

Sorry no suggestions for ya. Are you plateauing for a long time now?

Seems like the whole two years...I lost at first but it came right back...I thought at first it was the amount of carbs I was consuming but I mostly keep it under 80 now and seem to do okay, except for the scale...

Just about caught up with everyone on this first day of the challenge...

Got my ox bile in...too soon to tell if it's making a difference or not

Going to restrict myself from falling down the rabbit hole (aka here, facebook, etc...)until AFTER homework is done (today is obviously an exception, I may need to take this further if I can't stick to it on my own)

My wife has a job doing something she wants to do (read: NOT management) in Jacksonville as soon as we get there...this will be after I get done with my class, see the previous point ;) School is top priority for this and probably next challenge...lots of nursing homes in Jacksonville so should be very easy to find something there after I finish the course...

 

Time to get to work!!
