Hey Everyone Happy Sunday!
If you read Friday’s post – I said I’d be sharing some of Enjoying Life’s Moments with you, and today is the PERFECT day to start because I have some major changes in my lifestyle that I need to start TODAY! I’m definitely going to need the support and encouragement of my friends and family here at AboveRubiesStudio and I HOPE that this may encourage a few of you as well!
Without getting into TONS of details about my personal health, I’ve been having a few health struggles for several years. I’ve had hormonal and “female” problems since I was a young girl (12, 13, 14 years old) and I’ve had multiple miscarriages. I’m not telling you all this to make you feel sorry for me in ANYWAY, but to hopefully encourage those out there who are struggling that there can be hope and help beyond what may meet the eye!
Recently I have been faced with a few other health challenges. Being here in Wisconsin is just another exciting provision and blessing from God that I am in the right place at the right time. I started seeing someone at a place called Restore Health in Oshkosh, WI and through a long process and testing found out that in order to drastically start changing some problems with my health I HAVE to change my diet and I have to start on a 21 day Purification of my body. I’m actually going to go through the Standard Process Purification Program. This is a Homeopathic and Diet System to cleanse the systems of the body.
I’m going through this with supervision of my health care professional and following the exact plan. Its ONLY 21 days, but it is a little scary to me at the same time too! Its ONLY Organic Fruit and Veggies for 11 days and then ONLY Fruit, Veggies, Fish and Organic Chicken for 21. I’m a BREAD GIRL! I can give up sweets, but BREADS oyy! I’m finding out my body craves it, because its feeding a bacterial of sorts in my body! I HAVE to get rid of it to be healthy! I’m READY to be healthy and loose a little more weight too!
It sounds like a NO BRAINER, give up food you LIKE, for the LIFE you love! But for some people its not THAT easy and THAT simple. I just want to encourage those that are out there and MAYBE are struggling, that changing the habits and the WAY you eat REALLY can change and SAVE your life!
I’m looking forward to starting this process today! A Purer way of eating and a new way of living! Praying for healing and a start on attacking what’s in my body that should not be! A HUGE Blessing is that God made our bodies the way He did and places health care professionals in our lives to help us heal!
THOUGHT for today: What Health Challenges are you facing? What Changes can you make in the way you eat, exercise or LIVE to KEEP living a LIFE worth Enjoying???
And because this is about Enjoying Life’s Moments – Here are a few snapshots that I certainly enjoyed THIS week!
Left to Right – Top then Bottom:
1) Jenavieve slept on my check from 7:00am until almost 10:30am – I had a lot to do, but it was too precious not to enjoy and she was exhausted!
2) This is the “before” picture of starting this new Purification!
3) Enjoying Icecream with the kids “one last time” before the Purification!
4) Celebrating with Surprises for National Craft Month on Above Rubies Studio and really excited!
5) Yummy and healthy silly face snacks for the kids that they enjoyed!
6) Bensen loves being a “statue” at the YMCA! He also asked me the other day if I made a “steak” when we walked in because the pool was closed. It took me awhile to figure out he was trying to ask if I made a “mistake” in reading the schedule!
