Keri the Wino: Some Bad, Some Good

Keri the Wino: Some Bad, Some Good

Okay, so we are past the halfway point! After my little blip last week I went through a variety of emotions. I was on such a high from doing so well, and then I let it slip through the cracks. I know I said last week that I was just going to pick myself back up and keep on going and not let it get me down. But throughout the week it did kinda get me down. Overall, I’m still feeling pretty good about my accomplishments. I did go a full 3 weeks before I had a slip and that’s a lot more than I’ve done in the past. I still haven’t weighed myself so I don’t know if I’ve lost any weight — though Jessica did say in our last session that she could see some changes,...

Keri the Wino: Effects of a Detox

Keri the Wino: Effects of a Detox

So I’ve got two weeks of clean living behind me now and I’m starting my third. You’d think I’d feel amazing right about now—but that’s not the case. My post this week is about all the weird things that seem to be happening to my body these past two weeks and how I am trying to keep up my motivation and excitement for my healthy lifestyle—but also getting really flippin annoyed at my body. It started last week…Let me preface this by saying that it is not normal for me to get headaches (unless I have had some wine—which I have not!) So last week for 3 or 4 days I had this dull headache every single afternoon that seemed to hang around all day and into the...

Saghi: A Solution! And Quickly Moving Forward Again

Saghi: A Solution! And Quickly Moving Forward Again

After last week’s reflection piece, I spent some time trying to figure it all out. I’m still in that process, it’s a lot harder than I thought. One of my biggest issue is saying no to the food in front of me. Jess says if I’m spending time questioning whether I should eat something or not – that I should just say no and distract myself with something else. If you’re questioning it then you know it’s not good for you. It’s all psychological and all in my head. Jess also says if you keep eating clean consistent for at least 7 days it will become easier to control what you eat and to say no to the foods that are in front of...

Keri the Wino – New Recipes, New Feelings and No Booze!

Keri the Wino – New Recipes, New Feelings and No Booze!

So here I am one week into this endeavour. The first week of any big change is both the easiest and the hardest. You have all this motivation and are excited about the changes you are about to make—this helps drive you to stick to your plan. However, it’s also the time when you are transitioning from behaviours and choices that you have become accustomed to. Figuring out how to balance your new lifestyle can be a challenge. All in all, I would say I am doing really well. I got myself some cute new sneakers and workout clothes and haven’t missed a day in the gym. I haven’t touched a sip of alcohol and I’ve managed to stay gluten and dairy free without much...
