How many things can I think of changing to make myself healthier? More water and less pop? More exercise and less junk food? I cut out alcohol and started drinking more juice. Yes, it's depressing, but alcohol only makes my sadness and despair worse! I know it seems like the end of the world...the end of my sexuality...the end of me. BUT, it is not! It's just a challenge, a wake up call, a little bump in the road of life. Many are living MUCH longer than before. It's not a death sentence...it's a call to be healthier, because NOW I must!
More fruits and vegetables, more herbs and spices. I eat fresh foods and not processed, chemically enhanced, foods. Spicy foods rev up my circulation and cleanse the blood. I get that variety of color in my diet we all hear about
and ignore. Red wine instead of hard liquor. I never smoked, so that's already a plus.
I rest. If I'm tired, I sleep or eat some dark green veggies for my B vitamins. If I am depressed, I acknowledge it....this sucks...but it could be worse. My health is up to ME, and it's time I make good choices to live the life I want.
