Day 1032 Take care of that body

25 11 2015

Hello my peeps. Happy Thanksgiving time to you and yours. I really love the holidays and everything that comes with it but So many of us have lost a parent, sibling, or friend that this time of year makes us think so much about them. Relationships lost, or extreme life changes bring out the loneliest and empty feelings. Reach out to someone, tell them you love them or your just thinking about them. I promise from personal experience that a phone call to say I was just thinking about you is the best present you can give someone.If you have read my story you know I was a fighter and a drinker for a while. Those two things I didn’t take care of my body very well. I also was a horrible eater. If it tasted good I ate it. Which is one reason why I have diabetes but also a few other health problems. This never gets talked about much but the bible clearly states: 1 Corinthians 16-17 “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple. ” Thats not real reassuring considering I have taken my temple and destroyed it. I read articles a lot where older people said that they wished they would have taken better care of their bodies. Now at the ripe old age of 40 I’m beginning to understand. 11 operations, 433 stitches, 59 staples, 43 broken bones, 9 concussions, arthritis, diabetes, and high blood pressure I screwed up my temple. I started 1.5 year ago trying to really repair my body. The way I eat, drink and the constant pounding I put on my body, it wasn’t enough so I’m really going to have to be more drastic. I could scare you with all the things we have in our foods, with artificial this, and preservatives, and sugars, dyes, etc.. which is all true but until you go to the dr and they tell you either change or this will happen you won’t. Some days I wake up and I hurt so bad I want to cry, other days I feel good but I just know my body is super mad.It’s the small things that I want to encourage us on. Just go take a small walk, Thursday on Thanksgiving you can have everything just eat a smaller portion, stop drinking soda right now, . If you don’t drink water start with one a glass a day, that medical problem you have go to the dr. The longer you wait the worse it will be in the future. Start by doing something because I’m proof that there is a consequence in life for everything you do. God is the ultimate healer but he can’t heal if you don’t start.Happy thanksgiving and big hugs to you all

I heartily recommend the Paleo diet. I went from a size 40 to 34 pants, and have never been hungry or felt better. As you say, the sugar, chemicals, and other crap manufacturers put in processed food is scary. The Paleo diet stresses the basics we were meant to consume.

Surviving the affair....the cheaters perspective

I cheated. Yip I did it, I am not proud of it, but that won't change a thing. This is my story of me trying to survive one day at a time. No guarantees....
