Make It Happen March

Just Do It – No Excuses

I came home from work tired and grumpy.  My plan was to get into my pj’s and pass out.  Had I done that I would have wasted and evening and then eaten a bunch of crap hours later.

Instead I remembered Make it Happen March!  I walked in the door, talked with my daughter for a bit, got her set up with a craft project, made dinner and grabbed my laptop to write this blog.  No excuses.  I made a fabulous chicken dinner with veggies that my daughter enjoyed as well.  I didn’t contemplate how to skillfully write the perfect blog entry, and then never post it.  Instead I just sat down and said what was on my mind.

Checking in.

I am here and I am feeling good.  It appears there are many people in my peripheral who are getting their health in order as well.  They are another form of support and a new voice.  People I can bounce ideas off of.  I am really enjoying talking to old friends who making similar changes.  It’s reinvigorating.

One of my promises to myself is to not give up.  By coming home and taking the time to make dinner and spend time with my daughter, I proved to myself I am not giving up.  I still have a long way to go.

  1. Congrats to you. I am certainly making changes, some of them inspired by you — I contacted a naturopathic doctor today to see about setting up an initial appointment. I’ve decided to cancel my upcoming rheumatologist appointment and try to attack my autoimmune disease naturally rather than treating the symptoms with drugs whose potential side effects include liver failure and death. 🙂

    1. I am so happy to hear that Jaimee. I would have been the last person I know who would ever consider “Hippie” doctors. One year changed my views a lot. Now I want everyone I know to seek naturopathic doctors instead of traditional medicine. It changed my life.

      There are some days that my pain or psoriasis flares up, but I can handle it now and get it under control much faster. I look forward to hearing about your experience!

      1. When i got my diagnosis, you were one of the first things i thought of. I know psoriasis is also autoimmune, and thought of how traditional medicine failed you for thirty years and a naturopath cut through all that immediately. I did quite a bit of research on treating autoimmune diseases naturally, and just what I’ve done on my own (diet and supplements) has given me better results than doctors were offering — all while lowering the toxicity in my body instead of raising it. It’s hard to have faith in Western medicine when they say, “We don’t really know how to treat you, we’re recommending drugs that could really harm you, and we don’t even really know why you got this disease, but it might be because of all those antibiotics we’ve been giving you for chronic sinusitis. ” It feels like a good time to get back to basics.

  2. Way to go girl! These things seem so small when we look at them in the now but in the larger picture it’s these little choices each day that are going to build the better us.

  3. Shoot, for a moment there, one slight hopeful moment, I thought the tile to this blog read, “Just Do It – No Exercises.” Lol, I thought that you were going to share some new health concept…Good thing that I walked on the treadmill today!

    Love you,
    Aunt Lena
