I’ve had a lovely morning so far… I’ve done my morning rituals best I can whilst being away from home. Coffee enema, nebuliser, taken all meds and supps and more.
I am feeling pretty good. I am still avoiding green juices however the last few days I had an epiphany. In the place of juice I had been having bicarbonate of soda, lemon and olive oil water. Then one evening in St Tropez I felt overcome with nausea. Not very classy running to the toilets and throwing up!
Then I realised I bought a bottle of apple cider vinegar with me and had barely used it. Knowing the amazing benefits of Apple cider vinegar I have been having that with my meds and supps instead. So far so good. I don’t feel nauseas and I don’t have stomach upset… Maybe that’s what I needed. Apple cider vinegar is very alkalising and calming on the digestion.
I have continued however to have migraines. Now the neurotic part of me thinks, Oh God, could this be something more sinister. Then I think of all the triggers that could be setting them off and the list is extensive, caffeine, red wine, heat, sunshine, eye tiredness, stiff neck, lack of sleep, dairy products and more.. I can tick off all of those as possible factors to my head aches. So telling the neurotic me to back down then once I get home and realign my life then we shall see.
I made another batch of GcMAF yoghurt yesterday. Because of the heat here it’s process is complete much sooner than at home. This morning it looked like set yoghurt and smelt amazing. I am really loving this stuff. It’s in the fridge now and I will test it later with some berries.
Yesterday Pete and I decided to try something I had always wanted to do.. Paddle boarding. I was really nervous.. Lets face it I’m nervous about anything new. I wasn’t given any tips or assistance by the French guy renting out the boards and was pushed on my knees off into the sea.. Argh! It wasn’t great because he said be careful not to fall onto the rocks below! With that fact and the very wavy sea I was a bag of nerves. I whined and moaned as I tried to control the paddle board with my oar. Being panicky I failed to listen to Pete’s instructions and whilst drifting into a moored boat decided I would go back to shore. Poor old Pete was trying to help but I just didn’t get it. I watched a while from the shore then Pete came and got me. I had another go and this time I actually got up onto my feet and… Paddle boarded! Yay! However I wouldn’t say I was entirely happy. I really wanted to be able to jump off and on the board but because of the rocks was petrified…. Not ideal. I need a lake with no waves, tides or current. I need a shallow pool to jump off into….Where will I find that? I’m pleased I tried but now really want to master it.
This morning I had a message from a friend who has asked me to speak on a night her friend is hosting. She will be launching a calendar ‘inspirational women’ and wondered if I would like to say a few words. I will be announced as one of the inspiration speakers.. The calendar has been promoted on the Lorraine Kelly TV programme and Anne Diamond’s radio show. Gulp….. I know I should but I am such a wreck at speaking in front of anyone! I have been assured that it isn’t a big affair and my friend said I have a story to share…..
Thoughts have started to go back to home. I am already thinking about packing and the journey ahead of us. I have to say I am going to miss this place…it has been the longest three weeks of my life! It feels like so much has happened. When mum left on Tuesday it felt so quiet here. She was such a great support. I know I couldn’t have driven that beast of a car without her. She helped me clean, do washing and organise lots. (Yes I did cleaning and washing because I had friends arriving- a girl has to have standards you know!) it’s the first time I have spent two weeks away with her. It was lovely.
I am so pleased we invited many of our friends and family to stay. It would’ve been too big with just us here. It’s been so lovely having such happiness, laughter and joy surrounding us. There have been times when I felt frustrated and a bit lost but then spending all your time with people can be suffocating.. But how quickly that changes when they are gone.
So what now? I am going to really enjoy the next four days with my man. Next week is all planned and I aim to transition smoothly into my rituals back home. I hope to feel back to normal soon. I have a life coaching session booked for me to get focused and find my mojo again and in three weeks I will be a fully qualified health coach. Boy that year has flown by! My main aim is that I want to help other people have a better life…
I am looking forward to the autumn and the rest of the year ahead.
How is it looking for you?
