Happy Day

My heart is full today.  God is overwhelmingly good to me.  All that He teaches me makes each new day even better (despite how I feel emotionally, physically, etc.).  I am truly humbled by His extravagant, irrational love.  I cannot understand how He loves but I am so glad He does.

I know everyone wants to know details on how I'm doing.  I'll get that out of the way so I can write about more important things.  I am really enjoying this diet I'm on.  I don't know why they call it a diet.  I'd prefer to call it "eating", but I didn't name it.  Here is an example of what a day's meals consist of:

Omelet with mushrooms, turkey sausage and kale (or spinach)
Cinnamon Flax muffin with nuts (sounds weird, but it's yummy in my tummy)

Salad with dark, leafy greens and maybe sweet peppers, olives, green or red onions, etc
My own red wine vinegarette dressing
Riced cauliflower (with turmeric, which makes it look like yellow rice)
Blackened (just seasoning) flounder

Salad with dark, leafy greens again
My own red wine vinegarette dressing
Dilled salmon or salmon marinated in oil, crushed garlic and vinegar and cayenne pepper

I am loving my cayenne pepper and anything HOT!  You can see it on my omelet.
I feel like I'm eating like a king.  It's all clean and organic.  It makes me feel great.  I have been struggling with my macros (fats, proteins carbs) and I am continuing to fine tune them.  I immediately lost weight and I am trying to keep it on instead.  Now I need to gain some back.  I talk to my doctor this week about this.  I'm just not sure what macros to alter to put the weight back on.  I've read it takes about three months to get it worked out because the body is adapting to a new metabolism.  I didn't realize how much I lacked in getting my vitamin and mineral levels in check and there have been some days when I felt weak and fatigued.  Yeah, I should have followed my doctor's orders when she said to use Pink Salt each day.  I thought I could do without it.  Easy remedy.  Got Pink Salt?  I will continue to keep you updated.  Meanwhile, if you are looking to lose weight, I highly recommend a low carb diet.  Some people do a "dirty" version of the diet, eating pork rinds, lots of bacon, etc.  But it is easily done using clean foods and organic (if you desire) foods.

I am still using other modalities in addition to the diet, such as iodine (Lugols), pancreatic enzymes, asidoll (digestive enzyme), green drinks, Pectasol C (modified citrus pectin), Liver capsules, melatonin (used in breast cancer treatment, not as a sleep aid), Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, multivitamin, DIM, Resveratrol, COQ10, Far Infared Dome, Chi machine, rebounding, breathing exercises...the list goes on. Most of all, I am still learning to trust God.  I was reminded from a friend's blog this week of this verse:

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him and He will make your paths straight.

I'm surrounded by people who encourage and love me daily.  I'm so grateful.  I think back sometimes to how I lived in the past.  Even just a few years back.  I wish I would have taught my kids to eat better, take better care of themselves, I wish I could teach them to cook and eat healthier and all the things I've learned lately about life and healing.  They aren't at home anymore for me to teach them.  Our loved ones see our flaws.  They see us act like jerks.  Now, I hope they see a better me and forget about the things I've done and haven't done.  I want those close to me to see a woman humbly submitted to God, living each day to honor Him and joyfully rejoicing in that freedom.

Love you all,


  1. You continue to be an inspiration to all of us.
