My Mama- Poem

May 18, 2018





My Mama is my star,

Always here - yes you are,

Turn away,

The bacteria in my body will play,

My head is spinning,

We still believe we are winning,

An unstoppable force,

Our bond the best resource,

To keep fighting strong,

No matter how bumpy or the road is long,

We cry together in our beds,

Creating endless ideas in our heads,

You hold my hand as I face the world with fear, 

Seeing the stain on my face from a tear, 

You boost me,

Showing me,

I am the best person I can be,

The world must see,

How we fight,

Always keeping our goals in sight,

A mission we didn’t accept or want to take on,

Our spirit or fight has never gone,

We have our days,

When all is too much in many different ways,

Still you are here,

You never disappear,

You hold my hand,

Strong to the world we stand,

No illness or disease can cause us to part,

I will always keep you in my heart,

So special and you are mine,

Always going above and beyond the set line,

A bond,

Of which I am so fond,

We paint the pages of our stories everyday,

A new challenge to take on in some way,

Together we take on what life throws in our direction,

In the mirror we see a warrior’s reflection,

My sunflower always so bright,

Lighting the darkest of tunnels with your light,

I could not fight,

Without you in sight, 

It’s true,

Mama - thank you and I love you!

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.
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.
