My encounter with "Ava" was all of 5 minutes but the effect that had on me will last a very long time. With my own food challenges, I do my best to follow the Paleo-yo program, but like any human being, we are just that...human. We have cravings...we get lazy..we go out. It's hard to stick to any kind of strict food program, never mind an adolescent! She will be in my mind when I feel myself start to cave, or when I need a bit of emotional motivation! I wish I knew her real name and I really wish SHE knew the positive effect she had on little ole' me!
My point today is this...we all have challenges. Some more intense than others but we all have them. In order to live a healthy, balanced life, we need to take initiative. We need take time to research what is relative to our own situations, make the changes that are necessary and frankly, stick with them. If a 12-year old with Autism can do it, so can you!
Here's to a healthy and happy you!
