In recovery I believe it is important to treat your body with kindness or over kindness if that is possible.
For me, that was something I definitely wasn't doing while in active addiction to alcohol. The only nutrients I received was from the red wine I was drinking, or as one GP liked to put it "Well, at least your getting some nutrients"... that obviously left me giving her a brief "kind of" laugh and the death stare from hell (hello borderline personality coming through). The only exercise I received, was going across the road, to the bottle shop, to buy wine YAY! mission complete for the day. But then it was back to drinking, till I fell asleep and awoke again to the same routine.
So in order to get healthy again I have basically had to retrain myself how to take care of myself properly. In this blog I will post things that inspire me, honest thoughts, a few of my past struggles and how Ive coped with them, things Ive learned, healthy recipes, health news, mental health news, advice for anyone that asks, restaurant reviews, pictures and updates about my day to day journey, interviews, excercise oh and of course, my near future battle to give up cigarettes (oh dear god, my poor family).
This will honestly be of help to anyone, even if you don't have the same struggles I do, it can never hurt to learn to care for yourself better and I would love to inspire anyone that will read.
If you have any questions, need any advice or have anything in particular you would like me to write about, feel free to let me know.
