Today is day 8 on the NoOodle diet and I feel great! I feel better today than I have in years. I think it is combination being alcohol free for one month & being gluten free now for a full week.
My day started bright and early with a session with my trainer Aaron. He really kicked my butt! An hour of vigorous work outs. He seems to concentrate a lot on my “Gluts” which is really another term for my butt muscles. He also loves the upper back muscles. Today I asked him why he focuses on those areas. He told me it was because those muscles are the largest & they burn the most calories. He also told me that when you strengthen your upper back it helps keep everything up right and aligned which makes sense to me. Every time I see him he asks for a complete run down of my daily consumption. He wants me to eat equal amounts of protein to carbs. I had told him today that I wasn’t eating any carbs. He said, “yes you are, from the veggies,”. My response… “Oh yeah”. I had told him that I made a great salad of cold beets, a can of tuna, arugula and red onions mixed with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh lemon juice with salt and pepper. It was great. He asked, “were those beets raw or cooked”. I told him I boiled them, peeled them and then chilled them overnight. Of course my obvious question was, “Why would it matter?”. He had explained that the body takes all day to digest a raw beet or carrot as opposed to cooked beets and carrots. Ah-ha, the whole Juicing thing now makes complete sense to me. I am learning on my NoOodle diet in addition to getting my health & wellness back.
I love exploring new things. I ask lots of questions and I gain knowledge. Knowledge is a true gift of life. I have been so fortunate to be surrounded by so many gifted people who are experts in their field of work. Thru them I have become a bigger & more knowledgable person. I have to keep this post short because I have a very busy day today. Lots of meetings to prepare for a very exciting event that Is coming up for me & NoOodle.
I can’t tell you what that is today, it’s a secret, for now. I will be able to share my secret with my fellow NoOodlists really soon so stay tuned and make it a great day!
