I got up and did my workout which was cardio, a run, and core. After my workout I had my superfood protein shake with Recover in it.
I worked for the morning to ensure that I had all the validation done for work. I wanted to make sure that I left my manager, Paul, in the best place possible since he will have to do all my work as well as his work now.
For my second meal of the day, I had pork chop with horseradish mustard on it and kale with tamari sauce.
For my third meal of the day I had meat balls, cauliflower, and rice.
This past week the Dr told me I have uterine fibroids. I had a choice. I could just go with the different surgeries she said were available to me or I could research in my natural nutrition manuals and see what changes I could make. ...
Four years ago, I drew a line in the sand and committed to making healthy choices for me and my body. Despite having surgery to remove a malignant breast tumour, I chose to nourish my body and use natural means instead of putting poison into my body.
With this line drawn in the sand, there was no decision to be made. Also, with my recent realization that I AM Enough, I pulled out my nutrition manuals and researched fibroids. It turns out they are caused by excess estrogen. So, I developed a plan of action.
Part of the plan was giving up caffeine - so my daily coffee - as caffeine exacerbates the issue. Do I love my coffee? Yes! But that commitment to health reminded me that I need to change to have different results. Another part of the plan is adding a supplement that helps flush the excess estrogen from my body. Similarly, taking flax and eating more cruciferous vegetables. I already eat lots of broccoli, cauliflower, and kale, but have added more. Moreover, the plan includes abstaining from alcohol. This isn't a big issue for me as I only have the odd glass of wine and with my fitness competition, alcohol is off the table anyway. Finally, it means ensuring I don't have xenoestrogens coming into my body from plastic. I use glass containers at home so I'm good there.
Given a diagnosis, would you be willing to change or would you continue doing what you are doing? Health is a journey not a destination!
For things to change, I must change. If I continue to do things I have always done, I will get the results I have always gotten.
Are you ready to make a change in your life so that you can get different results?
I went to pick Ethan up from school and was very honoured to be interviewed by Suzan in between two of the presenters for the Health Summit. She asked me questions about my current fitness competition and the knowledge that I have gained about the required nutrition.
Ethan and I headed home to see Joe and have dinner. I had a pork chop, some rice, some acorn squash, and cauliflower.
