“Sometimes we need to let go of the old ways to discover the new”
What happens when you hanker after that old life? The one that has not worked for years? And still, you plough on, pushing the same heavy boulder up the steep hill. In the end, exhausted you have to let the rock go as it rolls back down the hill again.
I spent years challenged by Fibromyalgia and ME. I hit the brick wall, time after time. The payoff was struggle, anger and frustration. Life as I knew it was not working or supporting me.
One day, I made the decision to take responsibility. I decided to let go of these old ways, finally willing to learn and embrace a new way of daily living and being.
That is when real ‘magic’ happened, and everything changed.
It feels right to share with you how I support and manage my health and wellbeing.
Also to say that neither ME or Fibromyalgia define me, who I am.
Once I started to build a programme and schedule to sustain my energy and health …. everything flowed just like a stream or river.
Whatever obstacles that challenge water on its journey, it will always find a way to reach its destination.
And the good news is we can do the same.
I invite you to come with me in “Doing What Works.”
It has to start with nourishing and nurturing our bodies everyday.
The Food I Eat:-
Means regular meal times to sustain blood sugar and the best energy.
Eating clean, organic fresh food for energy and taking natural supplements (fine tuned) that support my immune system.
Organic rainbow coloured fresh fruit, vegetables in season with good lean protein in the form of eggs, Turkey, freshly sourced Fish and Tofu work for me. I keep away from the cow, dairy, wheat, white carbs and white sugar.
I occasionally eat organic brown rice or sweet potato when available.
I drink 2 cups of organic coffee each morning. I drink at least 2-3 litres of pure water. After that, I drink green and white tea. Fruit and vegetables in season freshly juiced by ‘yours truly’ are part of my diet too.
I enjoy sipping the odd glass of biodynamic /organic white wine or champagne. A slice of my chocolate bakes or a croissant but remember they are treats.
I have come to know, it is never too late, each of us can change ‘how we do’ if we want to. Follow and plan a regime that works for you and do what you love and feel passionate about.
Ask for help along the way.
‘Change comes with a single step followed by another followed by….’
Let’s walk together on this journey of ‘Doing What Works ‘with Part 2 to follow.
