Recently I took a brief hiatus, because I needed to get some things in order. If you saw my last instagram post here. I talked about a few things in my life that needed my attention. One of those main things, being my health.
This past year, I was diagnosed with gallbladder disease, I was admitted to urgent care and was told to follow a strict diet plan that consisted of low to no fat foods. However, as someone who loves food, I didn’t listen and kept my same eating habits. In the spring of this year, I was admitted to the urgent care again, and later found out that I also had been diagnosed with fibroids. Life was changing so rapidly, I was 30 and suffered from two major health diseases. I knew that my weight/health played a major role in my new diagnoses. I wanted to ignore the signs, but my health was staring me in the face, saying “You can’t run from me”!
Having two major wakeup calls, made me look at life differently and I started to really begin to put more emphasis on my overall wellness. I joined a CrossFit gym, I have been eating healthy, and ultimately changing my entire lifestyle. Which means that I am going to be taking a break from blogging to make it a priority! Don’t worry guys, I will be back and stronger than ever! Being diagnosed with these diseases was probably the best thing that has happened in my life. It’s provided me clarity, direction and focus for my blog, especially with the message I want to convey to my readers.
I don’t plan on being gone long, just long enough to be at a point where I am living the best life for my mind, body and soul. What does this mean for the future of Simply Carmen Renee? Well, it means a new outlook and new focus! So if you want to be the first to hear about the return and all the new changes then please sign up here: http://eepurl.com/0f8dD I will share more of that upon my return! I pray that you continue to stick it out with me, because it will definitely be worth it!
