A New Good Start

*head down, toe circling on the ground* I'm back, but not pround.

I haven’t posted in a while. There is a reason for that. I’m ashamed to admit that I have been defiling my body.

Now don’t let your imagination run wild. I want to give you some background information on me… I’m a natural, deeply spiritual sista. For the last 7 years, I have been a staunch, almost militant vegetarian. I try to eat organically and in season. I avoid processed foods whenever possible and the microwave. I avoid fast food. I don’t process my hair. I don’t drink caffeinated beverages or soda. I make most of my skin/haircare products at home. I try to avoid taking unnecessary meds. I don’t wear deodorant. I don’t wear synthetic clothing. I don’t wear pants. I meditate daily. Basically I try to treat my body and live in a way that’s as natural and balanced as possible. It has never been easy. But I felt good and slept at night.

I do not know what has happened to me since Easter. Yes I was fasting. But I fast frequently and do the long fasts at least yearly. I have been eating all manner of foods. I have eaten fast food, chicken, turkey, deep fried food, white sugar, processed food… and now I feel like crap. I have managed to maintain some semblance of an exercise program, but that is fading fast too. I know I said that I was going to fast more and return to eating white meat. Well the white meat promise was kept with a vengeance, but the fasting went right out of the window.

It has to stop. This has to be rectified. I had an asthma attack for the first time since the spring of 2000. Those days I couldn’t leave home without my inhaler. I haven’t had to use an inhaler since I gave up meat in the summer of 2000. All the weight lost during the Lenten fast has returned with a few friends. (Cellulite and stretch marks) My bowels are starting to loosen too. I can’t go through that again. That’s just not sexy. I’m not ready to wear diapers again. My cycle has become significantly heavier. Like accidents at work, heavy. I’ve had a cycle for 25 years. This should not happen! I had a previous problem with fibroids that I have been diligently, up until recently, monitoring. I’ve not been sleeping well. Lost all desire to do activities that I previously enjoyed. I have lost my very first adult tooth! I had that tooth for 18 years. (It’s a wisdom tooth. I hope tooth’s wisdom didn’t leave as well) I feel a loss of connection with everything that I believe. I feel lost to my Deity. Who knew that diet and certain lifestyle changes could hold sway over my faith?

These are the hard and fast first rules to get me back to the place where I was when I felt at peace within and without….
• I shall embark on a 3-day water fast.
• When I emerge from the fast I will resume Daniel fasting.
• Not just meat, but wheat, dairy and sugar are evil too.
• Since it is summer, and the days are longer with the solstice approaching, I will exercise for at least 4 days per week.
• I will cut down on driving and take mass transit.
• I will drink half of my weight in ounces of water.
• I will stay away from fast food no matter how good and luscious it looks, smells and tastes.
• I will eat 80% of my diet raw. I tried to go raw last year, but after being on the diet for a few months, my bowels went out. I’m not saying that the raw diet doesn’t work. It just isn’t for me. High raw is good.

This is not the end of the line, just a start. Hopefully a good start. I pray that this is the last good start I will have to make because of triflingness.

I’m dealing with this for me and my health. I’m going (almost) public with it because of you readers. As embarrassed as I am to write it, I want to encourage anyone out there reading this how important it is to guard your health and stay on your chosen path. Learn from my setbacks and don’t let them happen to you. I hope my illnesses will enlighten others so they can avoid the pitfalls I’m climbing out of.
