Want To Know???

Good morning, everyone! Yet again it has been quite some time since I have written. Let’s dive right into the updates, shall we?

HEALTH!!!

You are reading that correctly. My A1C is down and my B12 levels are up. Not a bad turn around since all the eating changes have happened. I still weigh 230 pounds. I have started walking 2 miles every morning. I do have 6 dogs to walk, ya know? I’ll be getting back to meditating every day. I’m also adding yoga to the mix. I was on 4 different types of diabetic medicines and now I’m down to 3.

I credit my improvements to my sublingual B-Complex supplement, eating less processed vegan foods, and eating a Whole Food Plant Based style. That includes me cooking at home 95% of the time. When I’m out shopping for the home (groceries and animals) it is easier to grab a salad or soup then to take a meal since I don’t have air conditioning to help keep the coolers cold. The other MAJOR change to my eating is that I have cut out gluten. I think that truly made a difference in my numbers.

My doctor was ecstatic over my improvements and how quickly they have happened. He even mentioned that I’m looking better. I must have looked like crap before because I think I look bad right now. Then again, I’m always a harsh critic towards myself.

LIFE!!!

On to the rest of my life. Knock on wood, my finances are starting to straighten out. Hopefully, no more running in the red monthly. Though I have just incurred a major debt but with some leeway on repayment. This decision was lovely enough to grant me a few major anxiety/panic attacks this month. Those are under control and down to a minor one about twice a week.

What brought these on? Easy! At the ripe age of 45, I am back in college. I’m studying Complementary and Alternative Health for my B.A. The next step will be to take any other necessary courses and tests to become a Certified Nutritionist. All of this is to get to my end goal of having a learning farm/animal rescue. It may take a little longer but I will do it!

I thank all of you for your patience in following my life. I have a couple of recipes that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks (must work out a few minor kinks) that I’m sure you will enjoy. Until then…

Peace and blessings, my friends.
