I am often tired. So tired. My autoimmume disease can wreck havoc with me. My moods and energy levels. My digestion. It can all be a complete mess. And just as often I feel perfectly fine. Happy. Content. Full of energy. It's the low energy times that destroy me. I begin to feel guilty about the way I feel and it all turns into one vicious cycle. I've been burning myself into the ground of late with the occasional poor choices. Having a child has made me realise that these small people learn the best by following your example. So what I do has to change.
If you've read my blog before you'd know that about 2 years ago I decided to cut refined sugar out of my life. I didn't eat sugar for ages. Many, many months. And then recently chocolate and ice cream became my friends who quickly turned into enemies. They taught me that I just cannot tolerate eating them and that they make me feel like a drum of toxic chemicals. So last night I binned any trace of processed food from my fridge/freezer/pantry. No more chocolate covered macademia nuts. I am sick of waste. I am now embarking on a clean life for a little while. Simple, simple food free of sugar. Free of cake. No fad diet. No weight loss. Just the right choices and the right example for my little girl.
