Sometimes in life you have to take a step back and really examine who you are and what you want to accomplish. Most important you have to take account of how well your body, soul and mind are working together as one complete engine. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have done this but the return on self- examination can be great.
When I am going through a transformation in life, I document it. I usually enroll myself in my own self-developed program that fits my immediate life needs. During the time I wrote this note in my Diary Beth ( my name for my journal), I was going through the transformation. I was seeing a naturopath, enrolled in one of the best fitness programs in Toronto and had recently started a new position working in cancer research.
It was a new chapter for me. Lots of fresh starts and I needed to control my emotions, energy and keep myself in tact. The Hourglass Workout program with Lyzabeth Lopez was intense but worth it. I was tired all of the time but finally I was taking care of my body and it showed. Every morning I would get up at 5:00 am, in the dark, I was would bus over to the gym and put in the work. If you know me you know I do not like the dark or waking up early but I had to do this for me. I had to build the discipline and step outside of my comfort zone… at 5:00 am… in the dark… working out.
The next step was a Naturopath. I was tired of listening to my doctor ignore my testament of what was happening with my body. He simply was not listening. So I headed to a Naturopath clinic, owned by a woman that I admired. I followed the directions to a tee and I immediately became a different person.
Mood swings? Gone.
A totally new me with a new hope.
Thank you Jesus.
Looking back this note, I know exactly how I felt.
Slowly a change was coming…
