Though my new journey to health began when I thought wheat was causing my severe itching, working with my health coach has already helped me realize there is a lot more I’d like to change about my health.
I’m not sick, per se, and I know all western-medicine doctors would say there is nothing wrong with me, but that is not entirely true. I’ve actually seen doctors in the past about the itching and about my low energy levels. In each case, I was either blown off immediately or after one test turned up normal or one specialist said I didn’t warrant further testing.
But just because I’m not “sick” doesn’t mean I’m well or living up to my full physical potential. And answering Mary’s questions by phone as well as filling out my goals as part of her intake forms helped me realize that. And my lack of energy and mood swings affect my children as well as myself.
I wrote my goals out in pen rather than on a computer, which was kind of liberating. There was no going back and changing or rearranging. I just wrote the first things that came to mind. I wasn’t sure exactly what kind of things I should put – results-type of goals or specific steps to get to my big, long-term goals. I guess I ended up with a bit of both. Here they are.
