Back on Track

All natural detox: Filtered water, cucumbers, limes, watermelon
 I typically don't like to bog you down with all my personal stuff. It is after all personal. But, this year has been extremely difficult for me.

My year started off with me almost dying from sepsis. I was the sickest I've EVER been in my life. Then, after taking the yucky antibotics to clear the sepsis, I developed C-Diff which is an infection of the intestines. Great!

On top of all of that, I moved within six weeks of getting out of the hospital. Which meant I was packing and moving while my body was still healing. Oh and I also was wearing (still am wearing) a boot for my severly sprained foot.

There's more...Just as I was starting to regroup, I had to unexpectedly move again. AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

That was the final straw, after living in Washington for 14 years (Seattle for seven and Vancouver for seven) I decided it was time to relocate to my hometown, Portland.  While I accomplished a lot in those 14 years, I also seen my share of failure.

I'm glad to say, that after a couple of bumpy months in Portland, my living situation while only temporary, is good and get this I accepted a full-time position with a non-profit health plan (don't worry I'm still able to do all the other stuff I do!). Now, with a sense of stability and order it's time to -- get back on track.

I was starting to feel like a hypocrite with all my healthy food presentations. Meanwhile, I was eating crappy and not exercising. But, today is a new day and I've recommitted myself to living healthy. I don't like the way I feel or look! So, last night, I prepped my meals for the next couple of days and today to flush the toxins out of my body, I started an all natural detox drink: Filtered water, cucumbers, limes, and watermelon.

Thank God for His Grace (second and third chances)...

I'll keep in touch with my progress.
