Finding Balance

Just wanted to do a quick post to answer some emails I’ve received over the last few days as I can’t seem to pull myself together to answer them individually as  they come in.
The last few months my life has been a bit of a roller coaster. I feel like I’m living in a bad soap opera where bad stuff keeps happening to the heroine, you know the one – she gets hit by a car, in a coma, wakes up to find her husband married the Nanny, she falls in love with her doctor only to find out he’s he’s a double agent spy trying to kill her and…..and…and…you get the picture.
That’s pretty much my life right now, minus the coma, handsome doctor and nanny – but you get the idea!
I am not sure how much I will be blogging. I am trying to keep to my running/walking program and although I am not following a formal eating plan, I’m working on keeping portion sizes small and staying away from processed foods. Eating clean has always worked for me and the vegetable/fruit carbs don’t play havoc with my insulin/hormones the way processed food carbs do so because I eat so little animal protein, I found it really difficult to stick to a low-carb diet and am going to continue what I was doing before – only ‘real’ carbs, i.e. veg and fruit and I tend to avoid the more starchy ones anyway –potatoes, brown rice, corn, squash etc. 
With everything else going on in my life right now, this is what I can manage. It’s not perfect but it’s doable through this time. There have been some major life changes for me the last few months and more expected in the next few months. Right now, I just have to not fall overboard and keep my balance.
Thank you all for your emails and texts expressing concern and asking how I am. They are much appreciated.  I am still reading blogs every couple of days so I’m keeping tabs on you all.
This too shall pass.


  1. Enz, it sounds like you're doing an amazing job at maintaining your healthy habits while dealing with a stressful situation. You have a very inspiring attitude! :)

  2. We ROCKED your running program tonight! Awesome job tonight and I felt like a million bucks afterwards. We're gonna do it again on Friday baby:)

  3. Hang in there Enz. You are right, this too shall pass. You're taking care if yourself and that is the smartest thing you can do in the face of upheaval.

  4. Keeping up your great attitude will help you with the balance Enz. Hang in there and let me know if there is anything I can do. Hugs!
