I owe you all an apology. I never meant to take June off. I had planned to post whenever the internet allowed.
For those who may not know: our internet has been an issue for a few years now. Getting slower and not having service for hours or days at a time. Still paying the same for bad service.
The situation got really bad in May. By the end of May , even my scheduled posts weren’t going out on time.
Danny and I were having serious issues. Still are , although I am not sure he even realizes how bad things are.
I was an emotional wreck. Just waiting to crash.
Well crash I did. I hit a crying spell where I just couldn’t stop crying.
Or yelling loudly outdoors.
I started spending hours praying. Hours in my war room area when Danny was home.
Then I had a serious asthma attack and ended up in the hospital for a week. Only a few people were even told. Following that I realized I was having a lupus flair.
It wasn’t all my depression causing problems.
Frustrating because I have been eating well and trying keto ,Thin Healthy Momma and Atkins. Using parts from each of them. I have read hundreds of posts….books and articles. Have journals full of information.
I was send a huge box of Plexus products plus other health products. I have been on the Plexus Triplex for over 45 days.
Tried numerous green drinks.
I got a 30 day supply of the old Plexus Slim. ( I still need to get to the store to get a money order to pay for it). So will be drinking it for another 14 days.
Two months of eating healthy. Taking good supplements and not the cheap Walmart ones only.
I know my body is better off but honestly: I haven’t felt any healthier.
My body did what it does best.
It attacks itself.
I know it will take months for my body to start feeling better. For my weight to start going down.
Everyone says don’t give up.
I won’t. I will continue to eat the right foods. No cheating. The only thing I allow myself that is not healthy is my Diet Pepsi.
I will drink it when I really want it.
The good news: I haven’t bought any Diet Pepsi in 2 months.
I don’t crave it all that often. I still want it but I don’t have to have it.
Sometimes I will have one and then decide I don’t need it all.
A few times….the really stressfully… angry times…I may have 2 or 3 a day. I don’t think I have had more than 3 a day. Not in 2 months.
This is HUGE for me.
Diet Pepsi was my stress drink.
And goodness knows I have been stressed. And angry.
Do I plan to give it up entirely? No.
I really have no desire to.
Everyone should have something they really love every now and then.
What is the one change that has been made ?
I crave water and tea.
I drink regular tea only when we are having lunch out. The tannin in regular tea is not good for my kidneys.
Two months ago I had to force water down. I could handle lemon or lime water etc. But only a glass or 2.
I seldom had a glass of water.
Now I drink over a gallon of water a day. Sounds 2 gallons.
Not water only.
I add my 🍋 and limes. I add a packet of Crystal Light to the gallon jug. I drink green tea. Herbal teas. Hot teas.
I will drink from shortly after I wake up till I go to bed.
My lupus rash has been gone most of the last 2 months.
My skin looks better.
That had made me feel better.
