Baby Steps

The last few weeks have been pretty tremendous for me. Not that there was anything completely fabulous happening, but overall, I have been feeling much more energetic and healthy, and that makes everything better. When I don't feel constantly tired, simple household tasks aren't so exhausting anymore and you can enjoy little things more.

A few weeks ago, I did a 10 day master cleanse. That's an entire 10 whole days without any food. I didn't really feel any immediate effects, but about a week or two afterwards is when I realized that I wasn't getting tired as quickly. After finishing the cleanse, I was really disappointed that I didn't get the results I was hoping for, (especially after so much hard work and will power) but I realized after some time that it was still worth it. Worth it enough to do it again in the future.

Being healthier has paid off in other ways as well. My children and husband are also healthier, and that makes all the hard work easy to forget. For the first time in 4 years, Judah did not have an asthma attack with a fever! And Ricky has been having much less trouble with his heartburn, and he lost weight too!

We all still have a lot of adjustments to work out, but we are taking baby steps, and I am happier and more motivated to continue changing for the better (even though it's a lot of work). When my family is happy, I'm happy.
