My Goals:
Okay. Something personal. 10 years of severe health difficulties. Still messed-up but not as much as before. Too many bad meds. General health and metabolism shot.

Learning I have a body.

Hey Petalia,

Thanks for the blog comment and I totally agree with you, I've held thoughts for a while now that my digestive issues are more than likely something to do with SIBO and I'm really keen to try fermented foods and probiotic drinks (homemade as I hear sodium is an issue in storebought feremented things).

The minute I get home I am going to start, order some brewing jars, get some instructions and have a go. I'm still in Lincoln and won't be going home till the end of AUG so will have to wait before I can add this to my life as I don't think I'd risk taking glass jars cross country back to London.

I'm excited to try it as I really do believe the Hippocrates quote, all illness begins in the gut!!

Hope you had a great weekend and wishing you a health filled week. emoticon

Thanks Petalia! I've actually tacked on another day since today just started out all kinds of wrong and didn't feel right to me so guess it's a 31 day fast now emoticon

Enjoy the day emoticon

Yes you're absolutely right, I normally post my blogs the following morning just in case I have some midnight binge etc I wanted them to be accurate etc so wanted to make sure the day was done and dusted so I could be open and honest with everything in it. I actually quite liked doing it that way.

But anyways YES it is day 30, 4pm and I am in the final stretch, I already have my breakfast sorted out for tomorrow, I'm so excited, freshly hand picked blackberries from my mums friends garden.

I didn't even think the jigsaw was making my brain limber but I bet you are absolutely right it helped to limber up that ole brain to memorise the keyboard without even trying. Thanks for all your support Petlia have enjoyed sharing my journey with you!
