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.

James is being very resistant to any drink lately. Vegetable juice, only half a cup. He had a bad day. I hope this doesn't continue for him. Don't know how to make him feel better, just be supportive. I had a hard time dealing with his vomit today. UGH. It wasn't that much. I must toughen up this is going to be a uphill road for us both.

Long time, no see! LOL.... I just read your comment on my blog thank you and logged a blog just then to give you (and others) more information on my experiences. I also have psoriasis and have found something that is working well (and it's not diet related!). Although diet and temperature plays a big part in the psoriasis condition. Nice to catch up again :)
