Now, a quick musical interlude to celebrate the 38 week countdown to my year of living Oz-ily. Please use your imagination for the melody – many of you may be familiar with it!
I slog slog slog slog slog slog slog in the office the
whole day through
But to write write write write write write write is what I really like to do
It ain’t (grammatically, this should be isn’t – sigh, shame on you Walt Disney) no trick to get rich quick
If you blog blog blog with a laptop or a pick (sorry, it had to rhyme with quick)
It’s mine! It’s mine! It’s mine! It’s mine!
Where good health will truly shine!
I work work work work work work work from early morn till night
Then I look look look look look look look up every piece of Oz advice in sight
I dig up probiotics by the score
A thousand bacteria, sometimes more (well closer to a billion)
But I don’t know what else to dig ’em for
I dig dig dig a-dig dig
It’s home to blog I go
Thank you ladies and gentleman – I’ll be here tomorrow night too! I’m sure this is copyrighted to the Walt Disney company as well.
It’s been a very busy Oz month already! The biggest challenge for me is remembering everything that I’m supposed to eat. Yesterday, I had a prebiotic, good for everything banana, today I didn’t but had some garlic in my stir fry to get in the prebiotics. I learn more and more every day, but it can get complicated. As I mentioned yesterday (or was it the day before), a chart will really come in handy – I just need to find the time to do it. I also forget to take some supplement or another almost every day (except for probiotics). I’m not complaining, but remembering and keeping up with everything that I’m supposed to do is a bit of a chore. I’m trying to keep up the good habits that I learn each and every week and I’m convinced I’m getting somewhere – at least I hope so.
Now to the tally for the week. I have spent $21.45. I found coconut oil ($14.99 + tax) at the health food store and also purchased herbal dandelion tea ($3.99) to clean my liver. They did not have dandelion coffee so I figured that this was close enough and the nice man who showed it to me said it has the same benefits. I haven’t tried the tea yet, but I will soon. I cooked with the coconut oil today – just a vegetable stir fry with brown rice. It tasted more coconut-ty than I was expecting. It’s not a bad thing actually – it’s almost pleasant if you like that sort of taste. I will say, that unless it makes me feel fantastic, I will likely stick with the also OZ-approved Olive Oil. My concern is that right now it’s the hottest and healthiest oil ever, but it’s a tropical oil which somehow I just don’t trust. I’m going to do some research and get back to you soon. The long term benefits of Olive Oil have been proven. I’m not saying that I think coconut oil is bad, but if I’m travelling a path to good health, the tried and true may be the way for me to get there.
On that note, I think it’s time for some gratitude. It was a lovely, sunny day in Toronto – it felt almost spring-like! My favourite show, “The Mindy Project”, has been picked up for another season despite some not so great ratings. PLUS I got to go to the dentist! My teeth are clean, and I was told again, what a great job I do keeping my teeth stain and plaque free. My EGO is getting bigger by the day. The only issue I have is my wisdom tooth is rubbing against another tooth and it caused a little crack that they need to fix so I’m grateful that the tooth didn’t break and it’s an easy fix. Until tomorrow, it’s heigh ho, off to bed I go, but I remain…
