I have been steadily changing my diet over the last couple weeks. I will have to say, I actually feel a lot better. To some, the dietary changes may be extreme. I believe it’s easier for me, from all the other attempts at dietary changes, because my life literally depends on me being successful.
There have been two times I have “cheated”. They have been small cheats such as eating soy sauce (has gluten) and I forgot the other cheat. Anyway, since my body has been eating healthier, it really didn’t care for my choice to upset its new-found balance. I have done those cheats before, but this time the reaction was stronger. I have dedicated myself to not doing that again. I really don’t like the reactions I had and repeat performances won’t be necessary.
I am using my new juicer at least every other day. I am loving the combinations. I am using less fruit and even added a few new vegetables. I’m not really a spinach fan, but am finding it’s pretty good mixed with carrots and ginger, among other vegetables.
I am trying new food combinations. For example, made lentils for the first time the other day. Yesterday, I made lentil tacos (no cheese or sour cream) and they were really good. The more I go without dairy, the more I don’t miss it.
I have been able to lend support to a friend who’s mother is Stage IV in her cancer battle. It feels nice to be able to give back to a fellow cancer warrior.
I have also decided, I’m not putting off purchases because of “what ifs”. I am taking back what the cancer tried to steal from me. It will not be successful in making me second guess my life and its longevity. As I have stated before, I have handed this over to God and he is in complete control. He has brought such peace, that I can’t possibly fully describe the feeling.
I recently made a vehicle purchase. It wasn’t the right time (credit wise), however, my other vehicle chose to push the envelope, so good-bye pickup, hello challenger.
It’s almost been a year since I heard those horrible words, “you have cancer”. Gone from sadness to anger to acceptance to fighting. I will be successful. I have cancer but it doesn’t have me!
