For years, I had abused my body by not properly taking care of it.
Not enough sleep at night, too much junk foods, feeding my mind with excessive negativity, very little exercise, etc. The list goes on and on.
All I had time for was work, work, work. You know? forever busy with life - family, business, bills to pay, you know the drill.
And over time, it took its toll. Overweight, always tired, just miserable.
And for a long time, God had been telling me to slow down and focus on what's important.
I'm on my journey to health and wellbeing, one baby step at a time.
The first thing I did was cutting sugar. I had withdrawal headaches, grumpy for about four days. Then I felt fabulous afterwards. My energy soared. I replaced the starchy foods (rice, flour, etc) with lots and lots of vegetables. The weight started coming off, slowly but surely.
They say every journey starts with the first step. Those were mine.
