I've been thinking about this for a while. We are we always romanticizing the past and not the future? We've been hearing a lot lately that some want to take their country back and go back to a time like the 1950s. Now I wonder if people in the 1950s would ever imagine that time in history being so popular. Times were hard back then too I'm sure, but we tend to remember mostly the good things. I personally loved the 1980s. Sometimes I wish I could go back and experience a good day back then. I was a teenager then so I didn't really pay any attention to politics. We always had food on the table, clothes on our backs and a roof over our heads. I spent most of my time shopping for clothes, records and of course going to school.

What triggered all of this for me was the fact that Revlon has brought back it's Fire & Ice collection It has Jessica Biel dressed up like a starlet in the 1950s. The collection has eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail polish in bright colors. I think Revlon is capitalizing on the feelings of many people wanting a little bit of the past. Personally the colors are a bit bright for me, but I'm sure there are some people out there who are happy to see it return.

Busy Week!

So glad this week is almost over. It's not so much work. I only have 2 stores plus the cigarette collection in the gas station. So this next check is going to be really small. No, my son was on tv with his art class on Tuesday. Originally it was supposed to be the 18th, but they moved it to the 9th. So, I was nervous about that and didn't get a lot of sleep. Then we had to get up early that morning and hang around the art studio for about 3 hours. My son was in about 3 segments. The reporter didn't talk to him, but she did like his painting and asked him to stand right by her for what they called "a tease." It went well. I made sure to tell everyone that he was going to be on. I guess some people saw it. I don't get much response on Facebook. I've kind of decided to stay away from Facebook. I think people just ask to be your friend to show how many people they have friended. I don't think they sincerely want to be your friend. I will try to get some rest this weekend.

I have kind of started The Hormone Diet. I bought some of the supplements she recommended and I'm trying to stay away from dairy and sugar. I'm having a hard time staying away from artificial sweetener. I just want to have this bloated feeling anymore. Will keep you updated on the progress.

Starting to make sense

Ok, so for the past couple of days I've been reading The Hormone Diet. What Natasha Turner ND is saying in the book makes a lot of sense. I started having the fatigue, bloating, hair loss, trouble losing weight and stomach fat as soon as I hit 40. My hormones are completely out of whack. Now I just have to narrow down exactly what hormones are out of whack and the right regime to follow. From what I'm reading so far I have too much insulin, estrogen and cortisol. The next section I will be reading is the start of the 3 step program. Can't wait to get started!

Here we go!

Just got my copy of The Hormone Diet in the mail. Now I have to find time to read it. I'm hoping that this will explain some of the things that are happening to me. On another note...I just got a DVD of The Hurt Locker. So, I plan to have that on a continuous loop. Yummy Jeremy Renner!

The Hormone Diet

Wondering if it's my hormones that are out of whack. Will be ordering this book. It's gotten some good reviews on Amazon. I will be updating my progress with this diet on this blog.

Workout Schedule for the Week of November 1st

Doesn't look like I will work out today. I did some dancing in the living room for an hour. I might do a little more before I pick up the kids from school. Then I have to take him to acting class, go back to my daughter's school for a meeting with the teacher. Pick him up from acting class and then we come home. So, I will be doing a lot of walking today. Starting tomorrow....

Tuesday-Tonique and Lean Machine
Wednesday-Xtreme Timesaver and Shred It With Weights
Friday-Tonique and Yoga Meltdown
Saturday-A Tae Bo workout
Sunday-Xtreme Timesaver and Shred It With Weights

Starting Over

This is probably the wrong time of year to start over, but I went to Whole Foods today and bought some fruit to eat for breakfast. So, I can have at least one raw meal a day. The weight is not budging. I'm looking more and more bloated every day. I don't know what's going on, but what worked for me was eating 2 raw meals a day and a vegan meal for dinner. I got so tired of that after a while. And fruit and veg and so expensive. Sometimes I would not eat the lettuce one day and the next day it would be rotten. I wasted so much money. I'm going to start again tomorrow. I need to budge a little weight by Thanksgiving.
