1 Fish, 2 Fish...

This week has kicked off some new dietary changes for me. I'm forgoing red meat and doing more fish. This isn't too far from what I've been doing for a few years now but admittedly I have fallen off the wagon when $ got scant...hamburger meat is a lot cheaper than salmon steaks. :(
The stress of starting a new side job, juggling some other projects,not enough rest and me not getting enough exercise last week and my PCOS flared up BAD. Severe depression and an acne constellation on my face to rival the Milky Way. I knew it was time to get serious about my PCOS and diet...and exercise. I always feel pretty good when I exercise and I go to PiYo (Pilates/Yoga fusion) class diligently every Monday and walk every day but last week I let everyone else dictate my week and put myself second.
Always take care of yourself FIRST and the world second. You will never go wrong if you follow this advice. Don't be afraid to say NO to people when you have too much on your really is not worth the stress and they will probably understand.
My research has shown that Omega 3's are particularly awesome for my condition so along with taking the supplement I'm also turning to fish for my protein along with oysters and the like because they are rich in zinc, magnesium and B12.
The rest of my diet is going to get very "Mediterranean" and I have to limit carbs pretty tightly right now. My shopping trip yesterday looked a lot like I only went to the produce section....mushrooms, garlic, romaine (another excellent food for me) lettuce, cauliflower, apples, etc
I'll have to get reacquainted with QUINOA and desserts will look alot like...apples :/ I'm also switching to Almond Milk since dairy is really bad for my PCOS. This is going to be a lot of trial and error and I have to be patient, I know results wont be fast but hopefully Im on the road to recovering my life, moods and health.
Today will be a day of painting I'm feeling a little joyous to be back on track.
Everyone have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
