Health

I’ve been trying to make this improvement in my everyday lifestyle so that it is a bit healthier. 

This is not a weight loss goal since I am very small in size but it’s about the abnormal cell readings and just overall general health (blood pressure and that sort of thing).

I did a lot of reading and berries and tumeric in particular seem to be two major things I need to encorporate  into my diet. So I am now quite the connessieur of afternoon salads… Spinach, tomato, extra Virginia olive oil, chia seeds, strawberries, blue berries and some feta cheese… Not bad actually…

I ordered an infusion bottle so that I can start trying infused water as well. Since my vacation is coming to an end I figured when I go back out to work I could take it with me. I tried strawberries yesterday and I’m trying blueberries and lemon water today.. Although for regular everyday I think it will be cucumber and lemon mostly (strawberries and blueberries are not cheap here in the Caribbean!). 

Tumeric I’ve tried in tea – it is very strong- but I’m trying to get used to the taste of what is very much like curry in my tea.

I know I haven’t been able to get any kind of exercise schedule going but I know when I go back out to work I will be walking / moving around way more than I am now and will probably start back jogging twice a week. 

I’ve tried to make an effort in cutting down sugar (though my love for coca cola prevails I’m down to a mini can a day / one every two days and hoping to cut down more eventually). Also less rice and pasta … 

I’m hoping that by January when I retest there will be an improvement and just that aside from that I will feel an improvement overall with my body and certain things such as hydration, skin etc. 

But I’ve made some progress definitely in the last month.

    Also a tip, add a dash of black pepper to your dishes when you put turmeric in them! it helps your body absorb more of the curcumin, which is the beneficial component within turmeric!
