i just got back on the program. As life got busier with my new position at work, we quickly declined to become one of “those” families. Stretched to meet all the demands of work and family life, we were eating out and starting to eat much more poorly than I like. Enter the return of the autoimmune symptoms. Creaky legs, sore joints, headaches etc. Oh and apparently my brain was whiped too. For the love of me, I couldn’t remember the magic combination to make all the pain go away.
As love would have it, my beautiful son brought me back to awareness, when he wanted to take over the micro green garden this year. I hadn’t pulled it out as I really felt I didn’t have time for it. It was so pure of an action, I wept silently as I watched the “seeds” I had planted in him begin to sprout. He probably knew intuitively this was what I needed, as the day before I had made it all the way into the zoo, but could hardly make it out.
Either way way, this small pure flap of his beautiful butterfly wings reignighted my fire and I started juicing again, making kombucha, kefir and dehydrating. Like a dormant seed I could not access - as my good habits slipped away - I was again in bloom. I have been feeling amazing results in just a week. I am seriously hoping not to jinx myself with this post.
I also was inspired by the book The Autoimmune Fix. It highly recommends going gluten, dairy and sugar free. No easy task, but one I am inspired to reintegrate back into my now working life.
One of the ways I am making all this work, is ordering organic veggies from Spud.ca . If you have a Spud in your area, I highly recommend them. Here is my referral code CRCAL-MCCKIA if you would like to SAVE $30.
Getting unbusy on purpose has been a process. I'm here to share some of what I have learned and the tales of its making.
