I did it. I'm taking action to get and stay healthy (not to mention pregnant) with the aide of a wonderful Naturopath and fellow Four Corners Church member.
So far we've had a 90-minute session going over all of my issues. Dr. Oster has some theories and is ordering blood work soon. She has already started me on some things and will formulate a more concrete action plan once my blood work comes back.
In the meantime, I've recommitted myself to running and losing weight. After all my setbacks with mono this year, I'm carrying at least 10 pounds too many.
I recently completed a 5K. I didn't run it as strong as I would like, but I survived. And, for me, it signified a new chapter for my health.
For now, I'm enjoying bread while I can because I fear our days are numbered.... More on that later!
Don't take your health for granted. Don't take any of your blessings for granted. Lately I've really felt that I'm not in control — GOOD! I'm never in control. What a great reminder to rely on the One who is.
As always, prayers appreciated.
