A day in the life of me!
There are two types of secrets. There are the ones you keep to protect your self-interest And there are the emotional secrets, which you keep because they might break a social taboo that you have with your friends or followers.
We have come to expect “untruths” from every public forum, starting with the guests on TV chat shows, and ending with hoaxes on Twitter. Social media has made it so easy to blend our lives with others. The way you present yourself online can be a pretty telling expression of your identity, who you really are and this is why some people choose to keep their social media presence hidden. “Sometimes I want to put content out into the world without necessarily letting just anyone see me”. I don’t want to be left feeling vulnerable. ” If that makes any sense.
I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start. This is what I eat and how my day pretty much goes. I have to say If you constantly feed your body crap then you are making it susceptible to inflammation, virus’s and disease. I want to help you become successful in your healthy journey by applying the empowering techniques many of my blogs have to offer. This article has been written by a person who has had real struggles with a hypothyroidism but has worked through them. I am going to “keep it real” with you.
I am on a path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed. I hope this Article of me sharing a life in the day of me might help you.

Lemons – While lemons are acidic, once in the body they are alkaline-forming, helping balance the body’s pH levels.

Flavonoids, aka Vitamin P, may strengthen blood vessels and combat high blood pressure. A compound called limonene may even combat cancer. Lemons may even aid in breathing at high altitudes (Edmund Hillary, the first may to climb Mt. Everest, attributed some of his success to consuming lemons!).

Along with My Vitamin C
A few times a week I also have a detox bath or a body wrap
I make sure I get all my water in I have to have no less than 75oz’s per day.
How you calculate your water intake is your weight divided by 2
So if you weigh 150lbs divide that by 2 and its 75. 75oz’s
Never-ever drink your water intake @ 1 time. People have died from that. Water toxicity.
Not every night but if I feel like it 1-2 glasses of red wine or a Tito’s vodka tonic with lime Twist.
