Please join me for the One Day More October 2022 Chair Yoga Challenge that starts tomorrow.
We focus on one specific chair yoga pose every day which I post photos and instructions for daily. Because I missed 10 days out of the September Yoga Challenge you will see those poses repeated this month, just not in the same order.
While I use blocks, straps and yoga towels to modify my poses you can do them in any way that work for you, and remember, for anyone following this challenge, if you come across a pose you can’t do for whatever reason, please message me and I will send you modifications for it. Don’t assume you have to skip a pose because I will make it work for you if you reach out to me and if it is safe for you to try it. I just can’t fit every modification into my posts!

Charles and I are trying something completely different food-wise.
For months (if not years) now we’ve been going back and forth on focusing less on macros and more on quality of food and having much more of a Mediterranean type diet (except he can’t eat tomatoes which are in like 95% of the recipes) and I think we’re going to go ahead and finally jump in feet-first.
Even with low carb I’m finding myself eating crap, I just make sure it fits into the macros and that’s not going to get us healthy.
We want to focus on health, quality, way, way, way less processed and more homemade foods and I will continue to count calories since I still have weight to lose.
We’ve definitely made some progress over the years (humanly raised farm meat with red meat only a few times a month and things like that) but I can count the amount of vegetables I eat in a month on one hand, we both need to lower our cholesterol and get healthier and going back and forth with just calories and carbs isn’t going to get things done.
And the beauty of this plan is that all the things I’m addicted too and binge on (simple carbs and sugars and junk) is not on the list to eat anyway.
I told him I’m going to step up and actually start cooking since he works full time and I don’t and for the first time in a long time I’m actually looking forward to a way of eating.
Any suggestions and/or recipes are more than welcome keeping in kind he can’t have the tomatoes or other things that set off reflux and I don’t eat eggs or mushrooms.
I saw my doctor today and he would like to see me back on a low carb, low sugar diet. Considering I’m gaining weight back left and right and the binging is out of control that’s probably the best thing I can do for myself right now.
I’ll officially be restarting on Saturday because I need to plan meals and go grocery shopping.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading on binge eating and disordered eating and I do really well when I stay away from simple sugars and carbs but once those hit my system I get completely out of control with my food so it’s time to get serious about my health again.
My updated Low Carb and Calorie Counting Plan will focus on 1200-1280 calories a day (more on exercise days) with 3-4 meals with minimal snacks, a focus on low carb with limited simple and refined carbs and sugars as well as minimal processed foods, 100 grams of carbs and under and lots of veggies and healthy choices as well as at least 5,000 steps a day.
I’ll be going back to weighing in weekly and taking progress photos and measurements every 4 weeks with a new tank top or whatever else I might pick as a reward.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
