the party’s over

January 1st 2010

i may have partook in one too many palomas last night. i keep rechecking the bed to make sure it’s not a sailboat i’m trying to sleep on.

days like these the best remedy for me is a nice, brisk walk with my 3 golden beasts, and a cup of ginger tea. i’m not hungry so i won’t eat until i feel the urge. then i’ll most likely have some greek yogurt, raspberries and more tea. usually, this combination of fresh air, ginger, protein and fiber help stabilize my blood sugar and get me clear eyed and clear headed.

what are your post party remedies?

post holiday slump?

December 28th 2009

eggnog overdose?

christmas cookie cram?

ganache gorge?

indulge over the last week or so? who didn’t? whatever you do don’t beat yourself up for participating in life!! days like this when i’m returning back to work after imbibing and overeating i try not go the other extreme: fasting, detoxing, extra workouts, etc. i may feel better for a day or so, but eventually i burn out and compensate with an entire bakery. i’ve learned the best way to get on track is to eat when i’m hungry, what i’m hungry for, and follow my regular exercise routine. nothing extra, nothing extreme, nothing that makes me hesitant or dread addressing my health.

what are your tips for keeping on the health wagon?

The New Year is Approaching

December 22nd 2009

Wow! My first blog post?!? The New Year is approaching. That means the resolutions are in rough draft pencil form soon to be committed into finalized ink. Care to share yours with me? Any fitness or health related that I may be of assistance?

I’m ashamed to admit that every bloody year I have a recurring resolution: drink more water. Tis true. I’m terrible at consuming enough water. I even put the burden on my students in cycle class to remind me to drink with them.

As cute as my Sigg bottle looks, I still forget to drink!! It’s terrible too, because I sit up there, high on my horse, barking at my clients to “hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!” Yet when I fall into bed each night I’m as dehydrated as a raisin.

So here it is, I lay it out again in front of you faithful readers, my goal to drink more water. One of my New Year’s Resolution’s is to finish my Sigg bottle during cycle class.
