OH NO! What have I done?!? WARNING: This is not a style post! It about another passion: Health! I’m still pretty healthy, but the balance has tipped a little too much in the last couple of years. So I’m going to step out of my comfort zone and try something new for a couple of weeks! And while doing my first workout today, I had the brilliant/idiotic idea to blog about it here on IG!😜 -
About a month ago, I saw an interview that @drmercola
(my health guru) did with @naomiwhittel
about her health research and her #glow15
program/book! What really got me was this word: AUTOPHAGY! Have you heard of it? Apparently, it’s the key to looking and feeling younger! Well, I decided I had to have me some of that, and ordered her book and bergamot earl grey tea on @amazon.
I got the book first and read it. The bergamot tea arrived on Friday! I didn’t shop for groceries, so I’m not as prepared as I could be, but here goes! By the way, I just checked her IG page! There are no long periods of fasting on this program like her recent videos! Will not be doing that! 😱
I was feeling pretty sluggish after lots of junk food last night (also, I’m not a morning person) and almost decided to scrap the idea, but feeling proud that I didn’t! Everyday starts with AutophaTea. I had all the ingredients except the sweetener, which is optional. Can’t say I liked it very much, although I love coconut oil in everything else!
Next up, HIIT workout. I used to do a 12 minute HIIT twice a week, but stopped because of knee and wrists problems. Liquid collagen has resolved those issues, and I recently started doing HIIT again on the treadmill , but less than once a week. So, I was not looking forward to this, especially as the slow intervals are less than half the length of what I was doing! Also, the idea of doing a strenuous activity before breakfast was almost incomprehensible to me! But since that’s part of what creates that AUTOPHAGY, I compromised by making the slow intervals a little longer (1 minute) and slowing down the fast interval a bit! It was not as bad as expected and I felt pretty good afterwards! The best thing: Can relax tonight! Lol!
