Poetry Sunday - Happy Easter

April 21, 2019

 

 

Happy Easter 🐣 to you all,

Please take time to have a ball,

Take time to chill,

But remember your pill 💊,

Have a moment to reflect, 

That life can’t always be perfect,

We live with the pain that we carry,

Our illness we have to make friends with and marry,

To help us see the light, 

That life can be bright,

Our family and our friends help us see,

How strong we really can be,

Easter is more than the sweet treats,

And the massive BBQ feasts,

It’s realising who matters and who we are around,

The laughter and the cheers please sound,

For the pick up we need,

With joy and love our souls we need to feed,

Together we write,

Of our goals we never lose sight, 

Family time we need to know,

We can still shine & continue to glow,

Health is a battle that is not always won,

But we must continue to point our face to the sun,

Thank you for crossing my path & bringing the light,

You help me continue to fight,

The love for my family and friends will always stay strong,

The journey is hard and a long one,

I hope you are proud of me,

I endeavour to be the best person I can be,

Join in at our events and come to dance,

You don’t want to miss the chance,

To help protect and save lives,

People’s harsh words cut through our hearts like knives,

Treat yourself to soaps you deserve to feel beautiful,

The bank holiday sun - you are beautiful,

We cook our food and listen to the birds above,

Offering all our love,

Happy Easter 🐣 to you all, 

Remember you are great- so please stand tall.

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.
