Yes, I am back at it.
A DESIRE FOR HEALTH…
If you would like to know the beginning of this journey,
and review a personal reflection of my own struggles,
read here: Takin’ Care of Mama*
HERE WE GO…
I am ‘that’ mom.
That awful mom who swings by fast food… often… very often.
That mom who really is not fond of cooking… nor is very good at it.
That mom who lets her kids choose what they want to eat…
That mom who will give a second option to the main meal being served.
That mom who is round, squishy, and a bit comfortable to snuggle with when you are little,
yet not so wonderful when it comes to fun, active, outside events such as swimming, hiking, etc…
I want to change.
I want to begin with the clutter inside my body (ie nutrition)
so that the clutter on the outside of my body can take care of itself.
So I spend months pondering and praying what that will look like…
…and the first conviction is my obsession for Diet Coke.
my daily fix-all.
…the second conviction is my carb addiction.
it’s not pretty.
There is nothing purposeful about empty calories
and excessive amounts of additives/dyes/chemicals added into my body.
The convictions are there.
Then there are my many friends who surround me… many of whom have severe food allergies.
Gluten free, sugar free, casein (milk) free makes them free to feel better.
Then their is my family history… diabetes.
My grandma, my mom… praise God, not me… yet.
Thank God for friends who share a similar struggle, and share informational videos on juicing.
Thank God for friends whose expertise is on nutrition, and are willing to share that information.
Thank God for friends who encourage the journey.
Thank God for a husband who has never judged, and is my biggest supporter.
18 days… free…
It is not an easy journey to begin…
but God is faithful to guide my path…
if only I am willing to follow.
