So what has everyone been up to this week??? For me, it's been mostly school so far. Oh, I did want to talk about that zinc experiment from a couple of weeks ago. I started watching my zinc intake a while back to see if it would help my massive salt cravings. A few weeks later and I would definitely say that my salt problem is a lot better! Of course, I still do have days where I crave salt, but that's pretty normal, and it is definitely not as bad as it used to be. For anyone who didn't see my original zinc post, zinc deficiency and salt cravings are related because the zinc deficiency can lead to a loss of appetite, which can cause electrolyte imbalances, creating massive salt cravings.
Anyway, a couple of days ago I made up a new circuit workout (my favorite kind :D) for the gym! There's cardio and strength in there, though this particular circuit has a little bit more cardio than usual. The whole thing took me about an hour to complete.
A couple of moves that killed me were the boxer, triangle arm raises and the plie jump squats!!!! Also, this workout can definitely be modified by cutting out one of the cardio sections, doing each strength set twice, etc. If anyone tries this out, let me know what you think!
Please forgive the absolute randomness of today's post....I'm not very good at transitioning between the n topics. :D
When I was really in the middle of my eating disorder, I would spend hours online looking at recipes that I ended up never making. Well, I've decided that over this year, I'm going to try to make as many of them as possible, as well as try to come up with my very own dishes or treats! So, here's just a quick list of some of the things that I would love to make in 2012!!! If any of ya'll have a recipe that you love, please share it!!!! :D I'd looove to try out some of ya'll's favorite recipes, too!
- Homemade Gnocchi
- Red Velvet Cake
- Chicken and Dumplings (my grandmother's recipe!)
- My aunt's famous rolls
Bloomin' Onion(made this week!)
- Cream horns (w/ homemade puff pastry)
Well, that's about it for today...see ya'll later!
