You colour with bright colours to show your love for life,
The disease cutting through your body with a knife,
Changing your cells,
Where is the wand- I need magic spells,
When will that be?
The reality of it all,
Is not to allow yourself to fall,
This is for life now,
To the disease I must befriend and bow,
Work with the parasites,
Whilst attacking them with herbs that are out of their sight,
I watch people laugh and enjoy walking,
In a group talking,
Drinking and dancing every weekend,
Whilst I rock myself to sleep wishing for an end,
My pain taking over me,
Travelling the seas,
A dream I keep in mind,
When motivation is hard to find,
I will fight on,
Even when I think all has gone,
I must remember friends, family and the love I have received,
In the depths of this disease when me they have tried me to deceive,
Treatment, treatment, treatment is never ending,
Your hand you continue to be lending,
I am grateful and truly thankful,
I love you so!
You and I will fight on and glow,
To you my strength I will show.
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
