Oprah turned 60 this year! She celebrated her birthday by throwing a spin party. I'm stealing that idea for my birthday. I'm not letting a 60 year old make me look like a whimp! LOL! You should steal it too!
This is a true celebration for me. God has allowed me the opportunity to open my eyes and breathe for 14,965 days on this planet. A miracle that has reoccured 14, 965 times. I have done a lot to destroy this temple of His, but I'm on a quest to rectify that and rebuild His temple. It's never too late!
Last year for my 40th birthday (September 2013) I was diagnosed with a food allergy. Tree Nuts and Peanuts! What! I'm a chef (and a foodie)! That was not the end..."your HISTAMINE levels are through the roof," she says. What is that?" I asked. Long story short, I have been on prescription ANTI-Histamines since October 2013. Some nights I still have to take Benadryl in addition to my prescription just to get a few hours of itch free sleep. This is an uncomfortable life to lead. How am I supposed to survive not eating one of my favorite foods (amongst others)?
This is where my journey began. Following the advice of my 13 year old son, I began researching how to stop the itching. It opened up a whole new world of knowledge and understanding as to how I was killing myself slowly, but SURELY and causing more health problems than what I wanted or bargained for.
I realize that a lot of you may NOT live in Atlanta, but if you just so happen to be in the area lace up, bring your walking strollers, bikes, iPods, water bottles, favorite playlist etcetera etcetera. Take the first set of baby steps with me to becoming a healthier me and a healthier you!
So come out and join me for my 41st Birthday Celebration thanking God for LIFE, HEALTH & STRENGTH!
