I think it is the best option for me to stay well, complete the course and maintain some quality of family life. So it will take me 12 months, rather than 6, to complete the course, but I will get there. I may not ever get further than the Cert. III course, and that is OK. The main purpose of this whole exercise is to get me back to work (only about 8 - 12) hours a week and to work in an industry that allows me to be positive, have fun, care for others and be creative. Not too much to ask.....
So while I lick my wounds and ride out this flare up, I will try to continue taking care of myself and my family. I am committed to keeping up the green smoothies. Here are today's, already made. These have banana, pear, rockmelon, nectarine, silverbeet (heaps!) parsely (just a little bit - it can be a bit overpowering), chia seeds, filtered water, flaxseed oil and a little bit of protein powder and agave nectar. Yummy!
There's one for My Mr and three for me (including the one in the travel mug to take with me in the car if I go out). I am still trying to get my kids into the green smoothie habit. One of my blogging buddies, Sue, has successfully got her cute kiddos on board. Check them out as they tuck into their green smoothies at her blog "Just Me". Good on you Sue!
Thanks to all those who've left healing thoughts on my facebook wall. I will be back in action soon......this I know for sure :)
