Balanced by Blood

In Uncategorized on May 30, 2010 at 1:51 am

“Balanced by Blood” 5/27
Balance is an important thing in so many respects. Balancing responsibility, recreation and family among other many things is very important. Exercise and nutrition are also what keeps us going while stressed or trying to balance these things. No matter what you do for a living….writer, rock star or 9 to 5er, if number one isn’t taken care of, how are you supposed to be there for others? I recently went to a holistic focused medical doctor and nutritionist for some advice on weight loss and general lifestyle. Have you ever read anything about blood types? The history of blood types is fascinating, it’s based on ancestry and includes food recommendations and also things to shy away from. Researching the blood type diet has left me amazed….I have actually had a dislike to most of the NOT recommended items on my lists. Now keep in mind that it’s not a “diet” it’s just a balance of what your digestive system can tolerate and what benefits it most. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was age 15 and it’s ironic that my blood type states that we should be ones that vegetarianism benefits most due to the lack of acid to break down such complex proteins. You can find most of this information for free on line, without the need of a nutritionist, however you need to know what blood type you are, can’t just wing that. There are several books on eating by blood type. Some fad diet plans are slightly influenced by the idea also, but I’m typically wary of this type of fad style book. Take everything with a grain of salt, information isn’t always correct, but seeing perspectives keeps us open minded and ready to seek real truths. Send me your feedback if you have any experience with eating by blood type, I’m interested in your opinions and how it modified your life, if so. I hope to see you out and about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~LL~

“Lacking libations and dude ranch get-a-ways”

In Uncategorized on May 21, 2010 at 12:43 am

My mind is clouded with this weekend’s adventure to Mohegan Sun for Reverend Horton Heat. It’s also excited with the knowledge I can partake in some spirits again after a 10 day haul of antibiotics….ah relief is two fold. Also the doc told me no exercise during this time. I realized after speaking with a knowledgeable friend, he stated that the same bacteria broken down by the antibiotics, break down muscle and tendon tissues so injuries are higher. I’m so ready for my exercise routine and beverages, ha ha ha. I have had an interesting perspective without drinking. I’m a very social person drinking or not. But when your health is good, you tend to socialize more, I feel. Though libations aren’t always needed, I still shall welcome them with open arms. I also welcome the summer and all the fun that is to be had soon. I was just talking with a friend that has a great weekend idea, they’re going to a dude ranch (and not too far away either). Heavy Rebel Weekender is a good idea too….do you have any other cool ideas for summer get aways? Hope to see you out n about, keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~LL~

“Stitches?”

In Uncategorized on May 14, 2010 at 11:42 am

“Stitches?”
A recent scare or actually fairly current scare of having to go in for possible surgery abrupted my world…life really isn’t that predictable, which I do appreciate spur of the moment activities, but not surgery, ha ha. My recent transformation from back injury girl to health-o-matic active girl has been put on temporary hold. I’m sure I’ll be fine but I guess all those crunches, workouts and raw foods have made my system mad, lol. No, really I’m not blaming the good things, it’s just that no one knows whats going on. It was thought to be appendicitis, which is routine surgery…no surgery needed thank goodness…..I’m so ready to work out again but I have a solid antibiotic session that will keep me away for just over a week. I am planning on significantly reducing my smoking habit which does happen when I drink. I had quit for 3 years why can’t I do it again? And if I have that once a year craving at a bad anniversary or something, I’ll be buying American Spirits….down with the chemicals. Any advice on how not to gain weight when quitting or how to make quitting easier, my ears are open to your ideas. Go have some fun at these events and according to my hopeful schedule I’ll be back out on the town by Wednesday of next week! I’ll be so ready for music, so send me your dates! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! xo ~LL~
