Crazy Opportunities Lie Ahead

August 10, 2018

It's weekend, 

Grab a friend, 

It is time to celebrate, 

Fate, 

For wrapped up in pain, 

There is always something to gain, 

To grow, 

Your strengths you must show, 

Fall to the floor, 

Or ask for more, 

Know that this is your story and you hold the pen, 

A new chapter - when?

Here and now, 

You are on the stage - take a bow, 

People ask how?

It wasn't easy, now, 

I work hard, 

The pain and suffering I can't discard, 

My life is has become a mission I must achieve, 

The love and support I do receive, 

I am so blessed and grateful for, 

You help me keep fighting for more, 

I hope the small steps I take, 

A better world I can make, 

To save and protect, 

Love and kindness I want my life to reflect, 

My journey has been tough,

The roads have been rough, 

Through the pain, 

I have weathered the rain, 

To find a new purpose to my feet being on the Earth's sand, 

Take my hand, 

You can see, 

The real me, 

The flaws I try to show, 

I must turn into strengths in order to grow, 

What's next?

Who knows I just wait for the text, 

The media work all sufferers do helps our voices are heard by many more, 

We hope our disease you will want to explore, 

To help find a cure, 

So there is no more pain to endure, 

It does take bravery and courage to stand tall, 

Facing you all, 

To do everyone proud, 

Drumming up our sound, 

We pray from the day, 

People will say, 

LYME DISEASE, 

Oh no please, 

Help is at hand, 

Together we stand, 

Projects in the pipeline, 

Nothing ever goes in a straight line, 

Watch this space, 

Don't forget my face.

COOKING TIPS

#1
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.
 
#2
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.
 
#3
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.
 
#4
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.
 
#5
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.
