New Year Refocus

The last year or so has been an unfocused jumble. I have not stuck to a routine like I should and it has shown.

It does not matter what label the doctors put on me or whether I am considered to have issues. First and foremost, I am me. God made me just the way I am.

What my family knows is that I need structure and I need to learn discipline. Along with that, I need to refocus my exercise and dietary needs. When looking at what needs to be done written in black and white, the realization is that this will not be a small task. Fixing my diet will not be that hard because we haven’t strayed too far, the problem areas are the exercise and structure.

I was in Tae Kwon Do, but I quit last year. I had some problems I needed to work through and now I don’t want to go back just yet. So, we need to find something else to replace that structure and exercise.

As far as my health, my heart is stable. I have a bicuspid aortic valve with stenosis. Right now it is considered mild stenosis. This is nothing short of a miracle considering after the surgery for my coarctation we were told I would probably have to have at least an ablation by the time I was two.  

Dietary wise, I am hypoglycemic and my body does not process any artificial sugars. This means all natural for me. Plus, I have a few interesting allergies and sensitivities that make life interesting. Lactose intolerance, red and yellow dye allergies, and the list gets odder from there.

Here is to a refocused new year!
