|Random strong woman. (Not me. Nor my double.)|
Along the way, I took lots of workshops and picked up certifications for the latest fitness crazes at any given time: urban rebounding, mat pilates, body pump, zumba, and on and on.
During my pregnancy, I continued to teach, even my spinning classes. Teaching helped with my swelling ankles. Teaching helped me feel fit. Strong. Healthy.
The Long Slide Down
After I had my baby, I continued teaching. When my son was almost two years old, I rejoined Corporate America -- on a part-time basis -- and continued to teach on my days off. Until I went back full time. Until I was promoted to officer. Until my job became all-consuming.
So I picked up running.
Then I stopped exercising.
I have since left that all-consuming job. But I'm still not exercising, and haven't for about a year. I'm still living on the benefits of my earlier teaching days. Or at least I was.
The Wrong Year
My weight is still about the same. The jiggling is not. Nor is the thinning hair.
I think this hair loss is happening because I have no outlet right now for the stresses of the day.
My husband thinks it is due to my diet. My poor one, of course.
For years he has exhorted me to take a multi-vitamin. To eat healthier foods.
The Solution: GOMBS?
|GOMBS. Mmm. Appetizing.|
- Greens, especially kale, collard greens, broccs, cauliflower
- Onions, either raw or chopped up small and cooked
- Berries and Beans
- Seeds and nuts, especially flax, sesame, walnuts
I can eat other stuff, too. I just have to make sure I eat these particular foods every day.
Where's my multi-vitamin?
