Disconnected from my body

Ugh feel like eating is just such an inconvenience. Life would be so much easier if we didn’t have to eat 😏

I feel so disconnected from my own hunger cues and am finding that I just go from not hungry to literally starving.

I have to reconnect with my body.

***Also: I had an intense workout on the stairmonster today and actually scared myself at my strength and ability to override exhaustion. In contrast, yesterday was an easy swim and my standard AM Bike. Honestly, I felt ill all day today whereas I felt energized yesterday. My body didn’t well-tolerate the high cortisol of today and I’m glad I recognized it. Tomorrow will be easy. ***

“He who chases two rabbits goes home hungry”

Repost from Dr. Perry Nicholson, aka “The Lymph Doctor”:

Basics and fundamentals first. The longer you are sick the more sensitive you become to any stimulation.

You chase too many rabbits you lose.

He who chases two rabbits goes home hungry.

I often see people get stuck and frustrated because they do too much, too often. If one exercise is good, then ten must be better. Taking twenty supplements into a gut that struggles to absorb one More reps. More sets. More days.

When they need more rest instead.

Sometimes the answer is so simple ya miss it.

The elusive obvious Simplification: Chronic disease occurs when you lose the ability to make new cells that work.

So focus on what new cells need to work Good start: Waste out. Nutrients in. (In that order) Lymph first. Everything else second 😀 See what happens. Make adjustments from there STOPCHASINGPAIN.com

Nasal Strips: A Review

As per my blog post yesterday about nasal strips, I tried them today during my training and it was absolutely unbelievable. I’m already someone who tends to nose breathe, but during exercise, nasal congestion is my biggest barrier. After just putting on the strips, I felt like I was experiencing Life for the first time. Cant describe the profundity properly in words.

I felt like I was in a different world. It was astounding.

Must use sparingly as ultimately I want to experience the discomfort of the narrow pathway to breathe that are the nostrils to allow my body to adapt to decrease my C02 sensitivity).

Recommend highly.
