Happy Halloween! Another month is coming to an end. Overall October was a good month. I made a lot of progress on my healing. I’m still learning new things every day. And putting all the puzzle pieces together one step at a time. Although the waiting is hard, God is doing great things. I think I did pretty well on my goals this month. I probably could have used a little more rest…but that’s life. Here’s how it went.
*Exercise regularly – walking, jogging, biking, yoga, kettlebells, hooping, jumping (whatever I feel like each day) – I have learned that my body is not quite ready for a lot of cardio. I try to do some weights/kettlebells, yoga, stretching, jumping and hooping most days. Once in a while I bike or walk. I hope I can gradually increase as my body heals.
*I hope my swelling/fluid retention starts to go down at some point this month. I’m wondering if it could partly be due to estrogen dominance. I will be doing more research on that. – Unfortunately I still have swelling. I think it is hormone-related. And I think (HOPE!) it will gradually subside as my hormones continue to balance.
*Hopefully purchase a Berkey water filter to remove fluoride (and other heavy metals) from our water. – We decided not to do this right now.
