I’ve been pretty sick for the past week, my intestinal condition is back and my meds aren’t working. I’ve been exercising everyday because being active rather than sedentary seems to make me feel better. I’ve also been eating practically all fruits and vegetables and whole grains….So I’m doing my very best to be healthy. I’ve recently started a food diary to help determine which foods make my symptoms worse, and which ones don’t. I cut milk out of my diet and have switched to almond milk, I stay away from processed foods best I can, and have been drinking less alcohol. This is the first time I actually feel like I am beginning to establish habits for myself, and I hope it lasts. My health depends on it.
Other than this, my life is going extremely well, I simply need to focus on being happy, healthy, and stress free. Having a medical condition makes me take a step back and look at things from a different perspective. I realize that things could be much worse, and that I need to own up and value and care for myself.
