A little thirty second commercial had blipped across my television while I had it on for background noise three or four times over the course of a week or so. I didn't pay much attention it, but something about it caught my interest. Each time I heard it, I thought to myself, "I should look that up." When I finally did, it was transformational. Here's a little bit of what I found.
It was fascinating. I was intrigued. I watched the whole movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on my IPod.
And then I watched it again.
Basically in the last five years since my cancer thing, I've been headed in the wrong direction in terms of health and fitness. I tried, but could never make any changes stick. Then when I started my art gig and Creative Clearinghouse, I got even less exercise and ate even more stress. For my trouble, I've gained an additional 30 pounds to add to an already extensive collection. I didn't particularly enjoy the additional pounds, but they didn't bother me enough to do much about it until recently. Stuff is starting to hurt that didn't hurt before--back, ankles, swollen hands. I crawl home from work every day (even if I'm working from home) because I'm so exhausted ALL.THE.TIME.
I should not be feeling this bad!
But thanks to this:
and these spawn of Satan,:
I do feel bad pretty much all the time. It's time to stop that. October marks five years since my "cancer thing". It seems especially appropriate to hang a u-turn at this time.
So that's what I'm going to do. Join me as I share this experience in nutritional home health here on the blog. I'd love to have your prayers and support. And prayers. Especially prayers. Lots of prayers. It'll be an adventure for sure! In between, there'll probably be some art and maybe even some poetry.
But that stuff will probably be after the nervous breakdown, just so you know.
