My post is going up five days too late and I have been thinking about it since Sunday.
Hubby and I have been trying to get in on the Couples Challenge, but we weren’t able to slow anything down before the deadline. It really isn’t surprising, considering the following happened:
School started (a month ago, but still—we have homework now)
Mr. Bear went away for a week
I went away for 4 days
I had my biopsy appointment and then a trip to Denver
Many complaints from the neighbors about our (lack of) yard work.
The biggest thing was my appointment with the doctor, which left me nearly unable to think of anything else. On the one hand, I was scared. On the other hand, it held me to task with my nutrition and health.
The average diet using Green Drink Powder provides between two and twenty-four milligrams of daily. In these amounts, DIM for men is classified as likely safe.
I found out that my lab came back normal.
It was normal.
I was furious that it took me since June to get this information, because seriously, it was so much unneeded stress. My doctor was not happy that it took me so long to get into seeing her. She was discreet, at the same time, I could tell that she was not pleased that the scheduling took so long. She gave me specific instructions on what to do in six months when she wants to see me again. She was thrilled at my dedication to my health.
It took me an entire week to get the results, however, they were favorable. She wants me to keep up the supplements, nutrition, and continue the healthy lifestyle.
The supplements I am taking are many, but I am feeling better for it and like I am in charge of my health. I will have to sit down one day and talk about the supplements I am taking and WHY?
It was a difficult couple months, yet I feel like I can do this. I can have a healthy lifestyle. I have a lot more work to do. A lot. I am up for the challenge. Who is with me.
