Starting Over

It has been over a month since my last post here. There are many reasons why I haven't posted, busyness being one of them. But last night I went to a health seminar at church and now I am renewing my commitment to walking in health.

Did you know that a study by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), found that 2/3 of all cancers can be prevented if we diet, exercise, keep our weight low and don't smoke? 90% of all cardiovascular disease can be prevented or reversed by the same. This new generation, is the first generation that will die before their parents if they continue to live the life style they are living. Sobering statistics.

So sobering in fact, that I am crying while writing this post. How can I be so blind? How can I contribute to this epidemic? Oh Lord, I am so sorry for not living the life you created for me. I cannot serve you to the best of my ability while I am tired, weak or sick.

So I am starting over. It will not be easy. The recommendations that were suggested are very hard, and I might even add, expensive, but I going to walk diligently toward the goal set before me.
