I dont know what is happening. Since i turned 38 last month, I have changed my life.


  I think it actually has as much to do with a 20 year high school reunion and surviving the family reunion, but i have (without much thought mind you) totally changed how i am living.  

So, What have i done might you ask?  Lets see, i have started hiking 2-5 miles a day every day.  I have been maping my walks too so i can see that i have accented/descended 200-400 feet in each walk (It is a benefit of living at the top of a really high hill in San Francisco!)  Next, i have totally changed my diet trying to eliminate as much starch and processed food as well as high fructose corn syrup and fat as well as slimmed down on my meat intake.  Equaling= LOTS of fruit and vegetables, good fats, whole grains and rice and no sodas or candy.  I am getting more and more paranoid about what my food is made out of as life goes on!  I am trying to avoid roid rage at all costs!  

Today i have an appointment with UCSF spine specialists which i have been waiting for since May, to try and see what is really going on with my back pain.  It is a long coming appt. that should have been done YEARS ago!  

Why am i doing this?  I do think it may have something to do with my age (and that i need to start soon or it is going to be so much more excruciating to expedite  the older i get, but more so, my metabolism is slowing to a fricking crawl as i am getting older.  If i dont find a way to turn it back up, i will be gaining weight drinking water for gods sake!  And finally, if i have more strength, it may help relieve some of the discomfort from chronic pain.  I have known this all along, and have stayed active, but never THIS active on a daily basis.

Will it last?  Who knows, but i am going to guess yes.

What have i discovered since starting?  I enjoy it!  It is a great escape and it is a lot easier to do than i thought!  

I have less cravings by eating before i am actually hungry!  Go figure!  I know.

I have SO much more energy!

I feel a lot more like one of normal society!

 

So, bottom line, It is all good!  Not as painful as i expected and much more rewarding.  I can see why people get addicted to exercise!  It is as good a high as any drug i have ever done!Image

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments. I will read them all and appreciate the time you spend with me! Sincerely to you all! Emelie (aka, Bluepearlgirl) To see some of my artwork, please check out www.artwanted.com/emelie ...........
