Refreshing My Life!

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step ...
I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

I hope you are able to find a group in your area that you might enjoy! :D Thanks for the tips. I have been eating potatoes daily, EEK! Maybe that isn't the smartest decision. I haven't had any flare ups, but maybe I need to cut back just as a precaution. :) Thanks so much for the tips!

Thanks for visiting my blog, the pain is crippling. When it hits I had to try to focus on breating, slow it down and that relaxed nerves and pain, but the whole process takes five minutes of me on the floor. The new meds do not get rid of pain, but make it manageable

" It seems I've stepped on Sylph's toe, please tell me that was a joke and I'm not going to be stalked by a mythological creature."

I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no idea what this means. Enlighten me?
