Intermittent fasting 2 months later

Intermittent fasting 2 months later

So I’m still doing intermittent fasting. In case you don’t know, this site offers a great beginners guide to fasting https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/intermittent-fasting-guide#section3. For me I follow a 16:8 cycle. I eat between the hours of 12-8 and fast the other hours. This is the cycle that works best for me and keeps me from noshing at night. My first post about this kind of eating was done on June 2 https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/06/02/its-not-the-grapes-intermittent-fasting-next/I am surprised it’s been two months already. This is what…

The weight I am

The weight I am

In the last year I’ve been battling a 8-10lb weight gain. The weight gain came on over a couple of months towards the end of last summer. This was when i had to stop working out because of shoulder tendinitis. At that point I joined weight watchers. I would spend each week tracking everything I ate losing weight one week to gain it back the next week. In the end I wasn’t losing anything and I was just getting frustrated….

Intermittent fasting my conclusion so far

Intermittent fasting my conclusion so far

Intermittent fasting as per my favorite site Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermittent_fasting is: Intermittent fasting (IF) is an umbrella term for various diets that cycle between a period of fasting and non-fasting during a defined period. Intermittent fasting can also be used with calorie restriction for weight loss. There are two main ways to do this: ▪ Whole-day fasting involves regular one-day fasts. The strictest form would be Alternate day fasting (ADF). This involves a 24-hour fast followed by a 24-hour non-fasting period.[4]…

Two year renewal of Multiple Experiences

Two year renewal of Multiple Experiences

It’s official, today I renewed my blog’s domain name for another two years. This also renewed my iPage contract that my blog is hosted through. I made my commitment to my blog, to my readers and to myself. That means I’m going to be around every day for another two years. I have to admit, I’ve been a little lazy with this blog. I haven’t put much effort in lately. It wasn’t done on purpose, it was just a tough…

Self-love day 6- Doctors, doctors and more doctors

Self-love day 6- Doctors, doctors and more doctors

I’ve been eating right, exercising and going to the doctor as needed. A few weeks ago I saw my specialist for MS. I’ve been seeing a podiatrist for the fungus and the swelling blisters on my toes. Today I’m off to the vascular doctor to discuss the swelling in the extremities and see if I can get any answer to that. Then I have to make the decision if I want to go to the endocrinologist and go further to…

A blog challenge on self love day 1

A blog challenge on self love day 1

My life coach challenged me to write blogs showing self love. It’s been something I’ve been struggling with lately. Who am I kidding, it’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life. I can self love from the neck up, I’m pretty horrible from the neck down. I judge myself very harshly based on my weight and I always have. I thought my weight gain might of leveled off and now I’m not so sure. It’s been disheartening to say the…

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis – OMS

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis – OMS

I need to thank Jen from Tripping through Treacle’s http://trippingthroughtreacle.com/ Who reminded me of this. If you haven’t followed my blog, for almost a year I became vegan. I did it for health reasons. I wanted to see if it made any difference in my multiple sclerosis. The real reason I ended up stopping is because for some reason I started putting on weight. I ended up joining weight watchers and at the time being vegan was very difficult to…

I swallowed my pride and bought pants in a bigger size

I swallowed my pride and bought pants in a bigger size

I think I could just write the title and stop there. It was a big deal for me. I worked very hard to get into the size 8 that I was. More importantly I stayed in that size for eight years. I still have no answers to what’s going on and why my weight keeps coming on the way it is but it is but I can’t stop it. I’m doing all the right things and it’s just not coming…

Going back to a Plant-based/ vegan diet

Going back to a Plant-based/ vegan diet

I physically see my neurologist tomorrow, but she wrote back to me in my email that I sent to her. She said that it’s she has heard of some of her MS patients getting swelling in the calves, ankles and feet area for some unknown reason. Her only concern is why it came on so suddenly with me and now seems to be an issue. My guess is it was coming on a little slowly but then got really bad…

Weigh-in day

Weigh-in day

Happy Saturday. So I had to change my subscription at weight watchers to online only. It made no sense, at this point, for me to keep going just to weigh in. My scale at home always match their scale to the point and I never stay for the meeting anyway. Since my three month subscription was up and I don’t want to quit, I figured it was a good switch and wasn’t as expensive. Since I started weight watchers on…
