Wow, as I am making changes to my eating habits I am doing this in the midst of tremendous elderly care issues and dealing with house flooding damage. If I were doing this protocol for vanity reasons I would be so off this diet right now as high stress drives me to find "comfort" foods of the past. Thank goodness I am reading the body dynamics sections of why eating fresh fruit and vegetables are the best for your system and thus during this difficult time I know that this is giving me the best nutrients to handle the stress and challenges that I face. My hope is that as I turn around my own health and regain vibrancy I will be better able to handle this phase of life of being responsible for my family's elderly care. I hope this plan can best insure my own aging process to where I am happy, healthy, happy, healthy and then one day quickly dead.
So that is one of my main reasons to do tis program of 80/10/10. So many diseases are at the root lifestyle choices in nature. On the one hand I have always been basically a non smoker and non drinker except for the one cocktail at social gatherings. I never gravitated to those types of recreational habits. i have had dear friends who fell into really bad traps and some never made it out. My issues are more my inconsistency in exercise habits and food choices. There are times when I am really consistent and then I fall off the program and then have to restart.
It is so easy for me to absorb my family's anxiety and thus I need to first find a good method starting with eating to hold my own light and stay centered so that I can help my family better as I will be not over eating on bad foods to keep myself going and then having a big crash. I can't tax my adrenal system anymore thus I am hoping that as each day passes that I feel healthier and better and get to the place where I can wake up refreshed and energized so that I can help. Elderly care is intense you really meed super health to deal with our medical system and all the daily issues that the elderly go through from getting around and house upkeep, health issues, etc. Funny with such important life stages nobody gives you a manual when you have a child and nobody gives you a manual when your parents get elderly. You learn as you go.
Another reason that I got to continue on this path rather than give myself an excuse to break this program.
Have to summon my inner reserves and inner guidance to make the right choices and move forward.
Onward and upward.
I really pray that the promise of good health and being disease free is true for me as I work this program.
That would be such a huge gift in my life and to my family.
Now for my first 4 glasses of water for the day to start hydrating.
Love and Light
