8 a Day

"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks" 
- Proverbs 31:17

Being a King's daughter is not sitting around all day wearing a tiara, looking pretty and doing nothing. Quite the opposite - we should be working hard and playing hard, living life to the MAX! Life is full and busy and  we have a great deal that needs to be done each day. We need to take care of our bodies if we are going to live the life we are created for. A healthy body means we can get a lot done each day and sleep well at night. An unhealthy body means we will be limited physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

I am very passionate about healthy living and  would like to recommend The Maker's Diet book to you! This is a fascinating book based on biblical precepts and scientific resources. After reading this book I radically changed my eating habits, my exercising, my cleaning products, my toothpaste... ha ha!

Often the thought of getting healthy is so overwhelming that many people don't know where to start! So I thought I would offer a simple starting point - 8 a day! Start simply by drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Water is required for practically every bodily function. The effects of not getting enough water are quite frightening. Here are just a few facts to help you get motivated to drink your 8 a day:

  • Water prevents constipation and any toxins from accumulating to dangerous levels in your body.
  • Lack of water makes you smell bad (not nice).
  • Water keeps the skin looking younger, healthy and glowing.
  • Water aids in the elimination of fats. Without water, fat deposits in the body will increase.
  • A mere 2% drop in our body's water supply can cause fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic maths and difficulty focusing on smaller print (fascinating).

Of course I could write an entire book on the effects that water has on our body but you can Google it yourself if you like. So if you are not already drinking loads of water may I challenge you to get started?

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
