Wow! My last blog was Nov 2012! 2012! 2013 was a bad year. I was laid off in early January 2013. Without disposable income, I could no longer hide in money, things, hobbies, activities, all the things that mask my true feelings. 2013 was about dismantling, trying, losing, facing truths, grieving, and lots of emotional turmoil. My stepfather fell from the roof in September and has been out of work with no income and that has put a strain on everyone.
I was determined to make 2014 different!
January 1 to 9 - I started tracking food, recording my dreams in a dream journal, reading daily devotionals. I started reading The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.
January 10 - I started drinking water, detox teas and primal foods. The first day I felt very nauseous, dizzy and weak. I just wanted to quit.
January 11 - Day two of the cleanse with water, detox teas and primal foods. Still pretty dizzy and nauseous.
January 12 - Day three of cleanse with water, detox teas and primal foods. I felt pretty good today and felt some energy coming back into me and not so weak. I feel I am bouncing back from white sugar and candy/snack withdrawal.
The first 12 days were pretty good. I have been working on a schedule and clear goals that I can complete, logging food. The rest of January I really need to be able to exercise regularly and be able to touch upon all my daily tasks.
