When life gives you stress…

Hey all!

This last month has been a busy one. I started a new class (Business Leadership) and begun a new job (temporary). Lets start by talking about my new job, amazing! I am covering a girls maternity leave, which makes me a little sad to have an end date to this job. I am however loving being back in long-term care. I miss building relationships and working with people with cognitive decline (Alzheimer and Dementia).

What lead me here… Stress. Continue reading “When life gives you stress…”

Lessons Learned #5

Well its been over a month since I last posted a Lessons Learned. Now I wasn’t very happy during that one with all the issues with the Doctor.

I feel like I am in a better place now 🙂

Lessons Learned #5

1) Sometimes you make slip ups when ordering food and thats OK. I did learn that dairy still bothers my stomach.

2) It all becomes normal. I can’t even remember what it was like prior to starting this and that makes me happy.

3) Creating a support system is vital. Not just people who are helping you along your journey but others who are going through similar experiences. I have turned to social media (blogs and Instagram) for the virtual support.

4) Don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to people going through similar things. You can learn more from them and who knows maybe make some new friends.

5) Be proud of your journey and don’t be afraid of telling your story when people are interested. You may just inspire someone to change their outlook on nutrition.

6) Experimenting with food becomes exciting. I have tried new recipes and found ways to recreate past favourites.

At my appointment with my Naturopath she was excited for me and the changes that have already happened. She believes that the change in my nutrition has resulted in my thyroid antibody being normal. With my medication being reduced with the hopes of still coming off of it, I am more determined then before.

I am beginning to believe that this will be a life long change with regards to my nutrition and eating. If it’ll nourish my body and keep me healthy and allow me to fight disease then why turn back.
