Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
My statement above is just that "learning to eat all over again" Its been 11 years since I have really eaten any good food for my health. yes I did eat, but mainly binged and ate dense carbs, fried foods and snacked on bbq shapes and potato crisps, a really bad recipe for disaster, weight gain and all the mood swings that goes with a toxic body, and not eating well is a very very bad habit to break, considering it stemmed over many years.
How I got to this place, I had 2 children under the age of 5 when my husband passed away in 2005, after me caring for him for 3years, with a newborn and a toddler in the mix and I have been living in survival mode ever since.
Yes its quite a tragic event to happen to a young mum, though I have walked through the fog and come out the other side and now its time for me. It's amazing how grief can be debilitating to ones life and destroy what used to be a once fruitful healthy life.
In may 2013 I decided to go vegetarian, for my political reasonings behind the meat industry and I didnt much care for it anyway, so away went all red, white meat, I dont eat fish and cant eat eggs, and milk is low on my priority also as it seems to run through me.
So I was left wondering what I could eat.
Thankfully I found this site and listen to some very good youtube videos and am slowly starting to change my habits, it is a very hard step to take, but I am using the phrase "Just for today I will....." and then this is not overwhelming for me and I can achieve a daily promise to myself, I know this is the only way I can break my habit, until I learn a new habit of eating raw and healthy.
Its scary to say the least, meat is everywhere, amazing how much you notice this when it is not in your diet, its absolutely crazy how much is being farmed, it actually sickens me, (but thats another story) and meat and the kids..well that too is another story....baby steps.
I have been eating so much healthier this week, and organisation is the killer, so I try and plan, so am proud of myself this week and I know my journey will get better with everyday I get stronger and know its going to be ok and much better for all our lives
So thank you for listening
