After a particularly bad week last week I have really picked up the pace to get my journey back t0 health moving for the Mind, Body & Soul. So what have I done….
1. I went to see my GP about the fact I emotionally was feeling like I couldn’t do it any longer. As anyone who know’s me will tell you, I have very little positive comments about my GP surgery but I have to say I was really impressed. He took me very seriously I was immediately referred & contacted by a specialist. After a one hour phone consultation he suggested Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which I will be starting shortly.
2. My bike has been removed from it’s hiding place in the shed, dusted off & even ridden. It was shocking how quickly I was tired but it was also the first time I have ridden my bike since my operation in August 2012 so to be expected. Mr B & I have also made a commitment to doing some exercise 3 times a week & getting out more for long walks / bike rides etc at the weekends. This started last night with a DVD in the living room. So much more fun doing it with someone else so really pleased he is doing it with me.
3. I have booked in with a Nutritionist, The Fairy Food Mother. Now I’m not going to lie, I have happily been putting this off because quite frankly I am addicted to Coca-Cola – there I have said it, my name is Nicola & I am an addict – & I know the first thing she is going to tell me is to give up my beloved. But it is bull by the horns time so bring it.
4. This also bring me nicely onto point number 4. I am arranging to see a Hypnotherapist to help with what really can only be called an addiction to sugar & all things unhealthy, so that I can really get stuck into my new health lifestyle.
Even though I haven’t actually done anything yet I cannot tell you how much better I feel. Just putting positive steps into place has made me feel more in control & uplifted. It has also banished the feeling that there is no point, I will never feel well again because I will, I just have to make it happen a little more.
Not bad for a week! I will keep you updated with the progress of all mentioned above but if you are thinking that you want to make changes but aren’t sure where to start…
Just do what I did. Think about what is the most important & start putting in positive steps to make that thing happen / better for you.
Wishing you love, health & happiness
