Here’s the Poop
The real deal is everyone poops, right? There is even a book about it!
I know it isn’t a pretty topic but it does affect our health in a major way. I have heard from so many, women in particular, that they only have a bowel movement once or twice a week. I used to be the same way. Trust me; it is very uncomfortable and not fun. It can cause bloating and so many health issues.
My husband would be mortified that I would only “go” a few times a week. Men tend to be more “on schedule”, I guess.
I started taking magnesium each morning to help me along. I take 500 mg a day. I also add Fiber to my coffee in the morning. I dissolve 1 Tablespoon in my coffee every morning. It isn’t gritty and has no flavor at all. Between the two this seems to have done the trick because now I am like clock work and feel so much better.
I want to be clear here that I am not a doctor and I am not giving any medical advice. I am simply sharing what I do. Please speak with your doctor to help you with your needs.
For my exercise yesterday, instead of the gym I went to the local dog park and met our “crew” as my husband calls them. We meet Haleigh, Reba, Sydney, Kooper and of course, we bring Molly.
The park is 2.5 miles around “the loop” and the dogs and owners love it. The men chat about hockey (Bruins/Rangers fans, oh boy) and the women talk about, well, girl stuff.
Here are Molly and her best friend, Haleigh with Max.
My food journal for today
2 hard boiled eggs with a touch of butter and salt
1 piece of Gluten free toast with a touch of butter
* When I say a touch, I mean barely there.
Chocolate Shakeology with maple syrup and mint extract
1 piece of string cheese
Celery with Laughing cow cheese (mozzarella, sun-dried tomato and basil) Yum!!
Few handfuls of popcorn (sigh, the bag is gone now)
Pork Red Curry with vegetables – no Rice
So, you may be wondering about the dinner. I had a very small portion and purposely didn’t have any rice even though they have delicious Brown Rice, which is good for you.
It’s all about portions people!
