Steps Towards A Healthier Me
15 days ago I decided I would seek to eat less inflammatory foods and lose some weight. Things have really gone well when it comes to reducing my inflammation and weight. I’ve now lost 8 lbs and I’m feeling so much better.
The past 7 days I’ve been doing intermittent fasting. I only eat between the hours of 12pm and 8pm. I made this move to give myself clear boundaries and to keep my night time eating in check. This allows me to feel much greater freedom with what I eat during that 8 hour window.
I average drinking at least 75 ounces of water daily. I stay completely away from caffeine unless I desperately need an energy supplement. I find that consistently drinking lots of water really does change everything for the better.
I’ve been trying to do a lot more stretching before I start moving around. With all that has been surgically implanted in my body it really is essential. While my permanent nerve damage always has the potential to humble me. I really do feel that I’ve got so much further I can improve when it comes to my health, mobility, and overall strength. Trust me, all you need is to get some positive momentum and accountability to keep moving forward.
Now, don’t get me wrong when I tell you all this good stuff. Yes, I still spend a few hours most evenings soaking in epsom salt. Yes, I still have limitations that I can’t deny. However, I refuse to just survive and I’m striving everyday to thrive. By God’s grace I really do feel great improvement and greater endurance everyday. I encourage you to keep taking the next right step towards a healthier you!
