After much study in different philosophies, I find the key to most things is finding your balance. I have recently got frustrated with much news because it is either black or white. No middle ground. Along with many other subjects. Teach yourself how to think critically, not to accept all that you hear.
Back in the 80’s, I was introduced to Macrobiotics. I learned the thought about finding balance with the foods. How you can balance your body following this process. I, unfortunately, never followed through on this. But always held onto the understanding of balance close to my heart.
I had a philosophy teacher that also told me that anything in fanaticism is brain dead. I found that to be true. Sometimes you have to be a little fanatic as you learn what you need. But then, it is important to pull back the reins and come to your center.
This mindset can help you throughout most of your life. Whether you are finding a friend or a guru. Someone starts telling you that you can’t see certain people, read things and promises you the world or a morsel of food…Run.
I have low blood sugar. I choose to look at it this way. I am trying my darnest not to call it Diabetes. I’m choosing to take care of my health. This blog is my journey to living!
I went to a training yesterday, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I recognize that I have to take care of myself, however, to be told I have to go to all these lists of doctors that will add to the disease. Yes, I will keep an eye on my eyes and not walk barefoot. That will be rough. I’m always walking barefoot! I’ll Watch for infections. This is something you should do anyway.
Right now I’m trying my best to keep my blood sugar down by healthy eating and living. When I looked into the book they gave me that listed all the drugs that I could possibly take. It cured me of putting a piece of cake in my mouth. The side effects were downright scary. Starting with weight gain. Stomach problems. No wonder you lose weight on that one. It gives you stomach problems.
My biggest hurdle is not eating emotionally. Having been only 1 month since my son passed. Gives me a justified reason for some good chocolate. However, learning how to live is now more about having emotions and not punishing my self in the process. I’m open to any insight!!!!
I found this little tidbit on the web or facebook. But I thought it was kind of handy to have around. This past year I was diagnosed with diabetes and I am trying my best to treat it with healthy eating. I hate measuring and this whole thing is a trial and error. But this is part of being the alive plan. Any great ideas are welcome!
I know most of what I have to do. Again, it is doing it! Water, exercise, etc. But give me some stress and bring on the chocolate. I have changed that a bit. Not quite doing celery instead yet. But little by little.
