It has been four weeks now since I left home. The time
has sure flown by. I feel healthier and so happy to be on
the road again after so many years.
I wish I had money and time enough to visit all my wonderful
friends in the US and Canada. Alas, I can only keep in touch via
this wonderful site for which I am grateful.
My son is settled in SF and I feel as though the dynamics of our
relationships has changed forever. I was thinking this day would
never come but it has and I am both sad for me and happy for him.
I came back from visiting a friend near Orlando and have found a
vast change in him. He is more self assured and more mature and sure
of what he wants out of life. I am so happy that he has been looking at
eating healthy foods and trying to lose weight. How many times I tried
to get him on a healthy trail and now he has realised it in his own time.
Hallelujah! I even mentioned Spark to him and he was open to it. I will
forward the link to him and I hope he can follow through.
My time in Florida was an opportunity to live and learn the healthy way.
My wonderful friends exercised every day and showed me many ways to
eat that I never thought possible. They had a wonderful garden and every
day we had fresh vegetables like kale, collard greens and chard to name a
few. Lettuce and green onion and peppers, tomatoes and chilis as well as
fresh herbs. We had salads every day and food was grilled or baked. I learned
new exercises on the mini trampoline and with the resistance bands.
I showed my friend some of coach Nicole's exercises and she was impressed.
I have invited her to join Spark and I hope she enjoys it as much as I do. I was procrastinating for so long and now I know it is a state of mind and I can do
this. I know I can.
Just an update on my friend S double knee replacement surgery. She goes in
on Tuesday, so I would like you to have her in your prayers. Also for my aunt
who has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and my cousin who has a lump
in her cheek. My friend in Florida overcame cervical cancer and has been
living cancer free for 10 years thanks to eating fresh organic food and exercise.
That is reason enough for me to continue on my health journey.
Happy Valentine's Day, and don't overindulge in the chocolates. Think before
you pop that sweetness in your mouth. It is not worth it.
