I haven’t been blogging as much lately. I have been busy.
To start I’m now a full time student, I’m studying an advanced diploma of naturopathy. Already I’m learning so much!
Secondly, I’ve started down the path of a fulfilling and meaningful career with a company I really admire and respect.
Thirdly, my husband has been away with the Army only coming home on the weekends.
And lastly there has been illness and teething. One night the small one woke 5 times overnight and then started his day at 5am! I was thankful this happened on a Friday night/Saturday morning because it meant it was Dad’s turn!
Now I’ve been studying and I’ve been focusing my energies on Nutrition and Naturopathic Philosophy. And if I’m going to talk the talk about lifestyle change to be healthy and prevent disease, then I’m going to have to walk the walk.
So I’m making some changes. Again. I thought we ate fairly healthy, and we do, but there are some things that have to go.
Alas caffeine will go (might be time to prepare yourself for an angry ranty Instinctive Parenting in the mean time ) so no more coffee, no more tea, no more chocolate. Okay so maybe I’ll reserve chocolate for special occasions like birthdays and holidays. Hooray for raw chocolate!
No more refined sugar.
No more refined flour.
And I’m getting rid of the last of the processed food that we eat.
I’m going to stock a basic home herbal remedy kit including homeopathics, Manuka honey, flower essences, massage oil, Fisiocream, and colloidal minerals.
And I’ll be diligent about our supplements. Especially the kids.
I can’t expect others to make the changes that I’m not willing to make myself.
