I’m Back So Watch Out
Firstly, I need to apolgise I have been away far too long. I have been extremely busy with so many different things. That is no excuse I know but I’m back. I went through a bit of a “for fucks sake” period after the hacking when I lost everything and kind of gave up in all sorts of ways for a period of time.
However, my life has changed so much since my last post. I’m now a qualified complementary therapist. For those of you who don’t know what that is I am a reflexologist, aromatherapist, massage therapist and a Reiki practitioner; and I absolutely love it. This is the work I was meant to do definitely. Took me 50 years to find out but it is worth it I promise you. For anyone who wants to follow me on the complementary side of things please visit my website and sign up on the blog. That is the blog where I will be concentrating on health, wellness, mindfulness, etc.
Anyway along this journey I was pretty much out of my comfort zone and the old demon in disguise of biscuits and chocolate sneaked back in and took over while I’ve been studying.
It all came to a head, quite literally, when I recently had a bad fall and banged my head quite hard. When the ambulance came they did my vitals, my heart rate at that point was 142, my blood sugar was far too high and blood pressure was also on the high side. That bump to the head woke me up most definitely.
Light Bulb Moment
I got home from the hospital and had definitely had a kick up the backside. I’d let myself go and was so angry with myself. So much guilt, let my family down, let my fast-fix team down but most importantly let myself down. It had to stop.
The Fast Fix Documentary
So last week I watched The Fast Fix Diabetes again. The first time since last June. Something clicked big time inside me and watching it took me straight back to last January with my fast-fix friends, the whole team in fact and the people we met that were not shown in the documentary. I’ll admit I shed a few tears watching it but afterwards my head was right back to where it was back then and I’m now feeling empowered.
Back On It
The past 4 days I have been back on the Exante Shakes (Yes.. cherries and Berries Steve and Luke). I have not been following the Exante to the letter I’ve been doing my own thing which consists of 2 or 3 Exante shakes throughout the day but with a healthy dinner at night.
Mainly the dinner has consisted of chicken and vegetable soup with a slice of homemade wholemeal bread or bought bread with real butter. It has been working for me. In fact I will be making a lot of healthy soups moving forward. The one I have been having this week contains 11 different types of vegetables and is bloody gorgeous and extremely filling and I will share the recipe with you.
If you want to try the shakes and bars which are also fab (especially the lemon and the strawberry) or to read my story on the Exante website click here from there you can also find the shakes, bars etc. You can also use my money off code TRACEY35 which will give you 35% off your basket.
No More Guilt
I’ve noticed a difference already and it is only day 5. It has also got me thinking that there will be some others out there who have also fallen off the wagon too. So the reason for this post is to hold my hands up and say I’ve had a bit of a life “fart” but it’s ok. And this goes for all of us… Stop with the guilt… Stop with the biscuits, the chocolate and anything else that is on that bad list. But most importantly stop the food being in control of your life. You need to change your mindset because I am now in control of my food and what enters my body and that is how it is staying.
The Power Is Within
I’m at the point during week one usually around day 5, where we find it’s a bit hard but whenever my thoughts turn to the twix that I know is in the fridge I remind myself I am boss not the twix.
Over To You Guys
