Coffee And Coromega!

I've been working on my health since January of '11. I started kickboxing. First I went two times a week. Then three. Then, as I got to know the participants and Shihan who owns the dojo, four times week. So now I go up to six times a week - every class offered. I was eyeing the Karate classes.... But I was too chicken to sign up. In September Shihan placed a uniform in my hand "You try." (Italian accent.) I tried. I now take 3 Karate classes a week. So the exercise part of health is well covered.

Food: I'm a terrible eater. I don't love to eat to begin with - and after making so much food for the kids, I kind of don't care what I eat. At my yearly (millennial?) check up my blood work was excellent - except for low Vitamin D. I try remember to take my Trader Joe's D every day. I also started Coromega - to get fish oil. Damn if it doesn't taste good enough to remember every day. So far so good. I'm also taking a Dr. Mercola protein shake I make with berries and coconut water every day. Love it.

Looks like I'll be going back to Las Vegas in April with Mark. April in Paris! (The hotel.) Swimsuit weather will arrive early for me.

What are you doing for your health?

Hi Kim,

We use Carlson cod liver oil, and it's great. Lemon flavored and very fresh. You don't even taste a hint of fish.

I have taken up running - well, stumbling at the moment. Thought I might as well since I'm out every day walking the dog in any case.

Food - can't think about that at all, just have to produce something edible for 8 every day.

You know how that goes.

[ooo, my verification word is 'mania']

You don't taste fish in the Tropical Coromega either - thank GOD. I tear open the packet and zip it into my mouth easy peasy.

Mania is a great wordVER!

Hey Kim-

I started back at yoga once a week. My vitamin D was lowish {37}, so after much research, I started taking Fermented Cod Liver Oil {b/c it's really high in A and D}. It's freakin' $$$, but whatever. I'm doing biomed on myself {I bought it for my oldest son who has ASD}.

I am also moving to more real food. The GFCF world has many freaky ingredients. Lots of reading and learning to do.

:) Kick out some stress in kickboxing...
