Hi again, it's been a while since I last shared my life with you guys. I stopped many of my previous addictions among them smoking 2021 new year. It's been over 7 months now and i'm still going ok. My cravings are all gone and my breathing is great, thanks to all cardiovascular walks up the hill every 2nd day at 45-60 minutes. It's a steep hill located not far from where I live and there's a number of different tracks I use. In the beginning I had to take few breaks and get my breath back on the way to the top. After about 10 times I managed to go all the way without stopping. I am so grateful for that and it's now become another addiction in my life, a healthy addiction for a change. But not everything is 100% good. For example when I found out by my doctor that my cholesterol is way too high and she sent me to the hospital for an ECG test. I was very worried but passed it. While my cholesterol levels are still high and my doctor want me to take statin pills for it. I refused and trying now hard beating it. I stopped sugar, saturated fat in all shapes and forms, milk products as well, and try minimizing the red meat, stopped the egg intake ( sadly I had to give our 4 chicken away) no lollies or icecream, no alcohol. No fun life yeah true, but sometimes you have to choose between life and death. I now eat lots of wheatbix, fruit, nuts, fish, black fresh grinded coffee, water, brown rice, porridge, soups and a variety of chicken breast recipes. So life is good with soymilk and without smokes for now. Yes not all that great but better than before. At the moment I am seeing a physiotherapist for my neck and upper back. Also twisted my kneecap many years ago and sometimes it comes back and haunts me, like now. Had 2 days off walking and I feel guilty. I am also having at the same time now a sinusitis infection on one side which bothers me. Well am alive and currently not in lockdown. So really nothing to complain about. Ok that's all for this time folks. You guys out there just started quitting to you all I would like too say keep going it does gets easier and easier each day and your breathing and senses become much better. Bye for now
