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.
