When the news arrived mid-week that our province is lifting social isolation measures in May my immediate thought was “Oh no!!! I have so much more I wanted to do…”
One of things I have been concentrating on is the state of my physical fitness. Everything I read about overcoming Covid19 (when we get it) tells me that optimal health is imperative. I have been on a path to optimal health for the last couple of years. After getting diagnosed with insulin resistance and hypoglycaemia a year ago this weekend, I jumped into action and completely changed my way of eating. I have become a committed follower of the Carnivore way of eating and have never felt better! Not only was I able to fully reverse my poor metabolic condition within three months by last summer I found my quality of life improved dramatically! No more migraines, no more fibromyalgia symptoms, no food cravings, boundless energy and no more mood swings and periods of depression. I am celebrating my one year Carnivore anniversary this weekend by kicking things up a notch. For the last three days I have put my fitness level to the test. On my pedometer app I have one award that called out to me, the mountain climber award. I have walked between 18 and 20 km three days in a row and climbed the equivalent of between 105 and 116 floors hiking in the hills behind our property. I call this “social distancing at its finest”. Here are screen shots of the results:
I wasn’t walking with my head down… the last three days had varying weather, including strong winds and rain yesterday! However, my iPhone was never out of reach. I took full advantage of the changing light, clear and cloudy sky and capturing my natural surroundings.
Here is your chance to catch a glimpse of what I witnessed:
And just in case you love the prairie crocus… I could not get enough of them either!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
