The new plan is to double down on what I have been doing all along.

Continue to eat right.
Continue to track nutrition.
Continue to exercise.
Continue to avoid added sugar.

Time for morning coffee.

Working on a new plan. Might get scary.

Good thing I'm averaging out my weigh-ins. My weight fluctuates 3 to 4 pounds a day just from gaining or losing water. It was 100F today and it feels like I'm drinking a gallon of water to stay hydrated.

I'm exploring all the sources of protein I can find.

But for now, I will lean on nuts, like almonds and pecans, as a perfect road snack. They do have all the healthy benefits I'm looking for. When washed down with a lot of water, they are quite satisfying.

Enjoying my prebiotic tea this morning.

I agree - they're useful as emergency rations, but not for regular use. Let me know if you find a good recipe! Fat bombs are fashionable at the moment.

Not sure about them Keto bars. They do have protein, but a lot of other stuff as well. Darn expensive too. I'm still looking to cobble up some natural protein snacks for when I'm out and about.

Recipes that are no-bake and loaded with old fashioned oats, peanut butter and flax seeds.

It's all just a matter of time.

Those flatbread look interesting.

I don't track, so don't follow the pie chart, but I do know, from past experience that it's hard as a non-meat/fish/egg eater to get it right as most plant based foods come with carbs.

Thanks Alice,

I'm constantly on the lookout for better processed foods. Sometimes you may not be around enough organic whole foods. Gotta be prepared.

I have started paying more attention to my macro-nutrients. Something I usually neglect. I now make daily entries in my Bullet Journal to keep better track of my needs. It's not just enough to cut out all the added sugar and processed foods. I still need to pay attention to the ratio of nutrients. Part of my long term goals.

The education never ends.

Time for more coffee. emoticon

I've seen the flat out but haven't tried it. I have to give it a try.

Looks like you're going strong. Good job!

Anyone working hard to get the perfect pie chart?



I don't usually pay too much attention to my pie chart. But, I'm now watching it more closely. Maybe it will help me quench that hunger and reduce my snacking.

Speaking of which, I think I have found a nearly perfect processed food (flat bread) that is on target for that chart. I like this food for making wraps. Very high in protein, fiber, and less than 1 gram of sugar. Tasty and good texture. I really like it. Meets my needs.



Let's see...yes, I need to log my Star Wars Challenge weight for week 9. All in all, I did okay. My weight fluctuated by only 3 pounds, but averaged out pretty close to target. I still can make some improvements, but medical challenges can get in the way.

Counting them calories is the best way to stay on target, so I continue to struggle with that.

Enjoying my morning coffee.

There are many fact sheets on the Internet. My Doc didn't see any cause for mine, no damage to the back of my eye, etc. There are some laser treatments or injections you can get for help.

I'm seeing tiny little dots and circles. Doc says they are blood cells. The other stuff I'm seeing are pieces of tissue tethered to the vitreous. Time will tell if they disappear or I get used to them. Bummer. Old age disease.

Still collecting the honey. Better than sugar for sure. But I must say, my harvest is much sweeter than what I find at the store.

My floaters are worse when I'm tired. I used to think they were to do with toxins and that clean-eating would get rid of them - but the optometrist told me, no - they never go away - they're like debris, they just fall to the bottom. I'm not sure I believe him, as I'm sure I'm notice them more when I'm run down or unwell.

Are you still managing to stay off sugar - and are you eating honey (a bit?). I've just been re-reading my 'stuff' about food addictions, and staying off (1) sugar (2) flour.

Good to hear your swelling is going down.

Swelling going down.
Still draining the frames of honey, a slow process without automated equipment.
No hurry here.

Oh joy new problem..."Floaters" in my left eye!

Saw the eye doctor. New to me but a part of getting older.
Should clear up in a few weeks.

New self imposed challenge...what is the least amount of food I can eat without feeling hungry? What type of food would that be? I bet it does not include sugar.

Oh gosh! I wonder if you'll become immune from your own bees' stings ........ I've heard of that. I think my instinct would be to slap some honey on it - but guess anti-histamine is probably needed if it swells up like that. I mean, seriously, was it THAT swollen? Did you have any anti-histamine to hand?

That honey sounds so gorgeous. Does a bee die after it's stung - or is that a myth?

Ouch.

Pulled 6 frames of honey from my bee hive.
Wind caught my bee suit and pressed the face screen against my skin, and a lucky bee stung my cheek. Face swollen up like a basketball.

Today's task is to remove wax and honey from frame and run through a filter to put in a bucket, then honey jars for consumption.

Yeah, the face hurts.

Still at it. Very busy watching over bird nests, bees, gardening.

I found I can cut branches from Poplar trees and stick them in the ground, and they grow! Just gotta do it before the buds pop open. FREE TREES!

Ordered some custom earplugs for better sleep.
Hope they get here soon.

It's getting easier to protect the nest.

So fun to watch the Swallows packing their nest with feathers that are larger than themselves. I'll see if I can get a photo.

Still at it. 1.5 mile jog completed.

Been busy bird watching.

The annual migration has brought in some Tree Swallows that try to nest in boxes I set out for them. The problem is that the invasive House Sparrows attack and either drive them out, or kill them over time. Several male House Sparrows will over run a nest, and then the dominate male will claim the box for himself. Not good. This year, I have decided to take action. I'm guarding the Tree Swallow nest box by just showing my ugly face. The House Sparrows don't like that, and they leave the area. The Tree Swallows don't mind my presence, so they stick around and are now nesting in the box. I keep guard over them and it's helping, though it keeps me busy all morning long. With patience, the Tree Swallows will succeed. I want to see the youngsters as they leave the box.

Patience, persistence, and setting goals.
It works for Nature and it works for me.

I'm glad to hear you've finished the anti-biotics - and hopefully your body has shaken off the infection. The audiology appointment sounds interesting. Just lately I've been falling asleep to a guided visualization which lasts 20 mins, and I never hear the end of it!

Still at it.

I have scheduled an appointment to have custom ear plugs made just for sleeping. The audiologist will be asking me some questions which will determine what type of material to use. Evidently, it does matter. And since they will be custom made, they won't fall out of my ears at night.

I have located two 8-hour-long sounds from the beach and rain storms and put them on my phone so I turn that up and hear the ocean all night long until I pass out. It's working great. Not artificial repeating sounds like you hear in those sound generators or apps. It really is helping.

I have removed all artificial LED lights from my living space, and that too is helping.

Off the antibiotics. Feeling better and ready to start running again.

I read an article yesterday about 'blocks falling from the sky' which was referring to the way in which we can be strolling along quite happily, then something hits us out of the blue.

This is disappointing for you after your hard work to get where you are with your fitness. Your diet plan sounds good - and your bees may well contribute to that (?) - and gentle exercise like yoga might be OK - I'm guessing your doctor just doesn't want you jumping around and getting your blood racing round your body.

Fits as in pain, discomfort, loss of sleep...

Saw the doc again today. It's a losing battle, a turn for the worse. Went in for CT scan and ruled out kidney stone. They want me to see urologist tomorrow. In the mean time, I'm on a stronger antibiotic, which means I will lose beneficial bacteria and will have to guard against dehydration. More fluids for sure.

Not the best weight loss plan, but this is what happens. Will know more tomorrow.
Doc says lay off exercise till we know more.

So I will continue to track nutrition and drink more fluids till more tests are completed.
I will focus on consuming probiotic meals to feed and build healthy bacteria.

Just another day in paradise.

Sun is up and it looks to be a terrific day.

Had a good sleep last night, but I'm still struggling.
The bacteria infection is giving me fits, but the antibiotic is still holding the line. All I can do is be patient and DRINK MORE WATER!

Wonderful - I ordered a jar of locally-produced, cold-pressed, unadulterated honey with some organic veggies - collecting that tomorrow.

3 mile jog this morning.
Planning my day with a cup of coffee.

The bees have located pollen and bringing it back to the hive.

It's a good day.

FEELING BETTER!

Starting this morning with yard work, feeding the bees, and other chores.
Had a big bowl of raw oats with fruit.

Supercharged!

Ah, yes, plumbing problems can be severely limiting! I'm glad to hear the antibiotics have had the desired effect.

I did a 'gentle' run this morning, on the flat, after 'resting' from running for 3 weeks because my knees started hurting. My lungs certainly let me know they'd not been running for 3 weeks!

Hi Gill, thanks for checking on me.

Yes, of all things, I was hit with a bacterial infection stopping up my internal plumbing. A visit to doctor revealed the problem. Antibiotics prescribed, recovery slow, resulting in loss of sleep and normal activity.

Got more sleep last night and I did a short 15 minute jog this morning to test motor functions. Tomorrow, I will try a longer run. One doesn't travel too far from the house under these conditions!

More good news, it finally stopped snowing! I'm hoping to soak up some sunshine today. Inspecting my trees for new leaves as spring cranks into full swing. I love this time of year, watching plants as they wake up from the long winter. Soon, it will be too hot and we will be longing once again, for autumn.

Strange how that works out.

Sorry to hear you've been unwell - I knew you were experiencing difficulty sleeping, but did it turn out to be something specific?

You're doing a great job holding steady.

One more day of rest and recovery from illness, then back on the wagon.
Got more uninterrupted sleep last night. I had 4 nights in a row without sleep. That was no fun, but now things are looking up.

Good thing I'm still tracking calories.
Holding steady.

I should be back to normal in a week or so.

Right now I'm envious of your space and air. I don't live in a city, but the town and the sea-front are now so busy I'm scared to go out!

Still snowing here in paradise.

Ducks love the mud it creates. I think ducks love everything.
Bees, I'm not so sure about.

Still working out, wearing out my tennis shoes 2 to 3 miles at a time.
Time for a new pair.

KEEP PUSHING!

Good plan. Those darned computers can hold onto us tightly, can't they! I have to keep reeling back those early-morning/late evening screen-times.

I think in my case, too much noise, light, and computer work in the evenings.

Gonna try pulling the plug on everything at sunset.
Going back to reading a good book with warm light in the evenings.
Get more sunlight during the day.

I don't know if this applies to you, but I've recently read about how sleep patterns have changed during the pandemic - and many more people now reporting sleep problems.

For falling asleep, the guided meditation type things work well for me.

Thanks Gill.

Working on ways to improve my sleep. The biggest problem is it takes half the night to fall asleep. Looking up tips to remedy that problem. It effects weight maintenance.

Under the weather past few days. Poor sleep and all...

The good news is I'm still at it.

I don't wear mine at night - so I know it can't give me good information. But I wear it all day - and the RHR seems about right. I did by a pulse oximeter last year - and it's very variable - quite often it tells me I'm practically dead! It seems to only work when my hands are warm - and they're quite often cold!

Interesting info on heart rate monitors.

elemental.medium.com/is-your-smartwatch-he
alth-data-a-reason-to-worry-or-a-wealt
h-of-information-5011d6283e98


I wear one and it helps me stay in check with myself. There are times when I question the data I retrieve from it, but I'm just an end user, what do I know?

It tells me when I get a good night's sleep and what my rest heart rate is, and if I suspect a problem, I can always go see my doctor.

Coffee this fine sunny morning!

I tried to have Green tea as my first drink of the day, but I've slipped back to coffee again - I really don't like the green tea much!
