Okay, so it's not a little pledge, and it's going to take a lot of energy- over a pretty long period of time, but I do believe that it will help me maintain a healthy body for a long, long time.
Last year I completed a certificate of nutrition- it's an area that I'm interested in after using food as 'medicine' for a couple of years when an illness had left me underweight and weak and I was trying to put ON 10 kilos (yeah, I know!!!). My pledge to myself last night...and something that I followed up today... is to continue my study in the area of Nutrition so that I know I'll have a rock-stable understanding of how foods and the body work together. So today I called the people offering the course and I will be enrolling when I get back from Cambodia. It's a Nationally Recognised course too, so when I'm finished I'll have a nice piece of paper to my name which tells people I have some inkling about what I'm talking about!!!! It can take 18months, but I'm quite motivated to learn and use everything I learn.
Thanks for reading!
