June is Men’s Health Awareness Month & 15th-21st June as Men's Health week, a time to emphasize men’s well-being and create awareness by providing men with powerful tips and information they can utilize to continue making their health a top priority. While men and women are both uniquely different in their own ways.
2019 that’s a wrap to the year AND the entire decade + the end of an Era.
2019 a year of learning to like, then love the skin that I am in.
To finish 2019 I wanted to apologise to my body for how I had treated it and more importantly the negative thoughts I have had, about it. I have made peace with those parts and I will continue to work on how I see myself & my body.
After all my Body is:
It is actually MY RESPONSIBILITY on how I see myself and my body, which is all within my control.
My Body Image Journey
Up until this past year I saw my body as an object that needed to be constantly improved. Problem is.....when is it good enough? Because I couldn't define the end goal, it was unobtainable and so the vicious cycle goes.
While I did and still am working on my health and wellness I have realised my body is NOT an object.
Do you or have you lacked confidence because of how you see (or have seen) yourself OR how the social norms have tried to shape your opinion of yourself?

Diabetes Mellitus is an abnormal physiologic response to blood sugar and insulin. It is important to understand NORMAL physiology before we can understand how diabetes is abnormal.
Our blood sugar is controlled to a very narrow range. The normal range of blood glucose is 4.0-7.88mmol/L - these are important numbers to looks at.
We start to have symptoms of true hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia can be mild, moderate, or severe.
Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X
The metabolic syndrome, also called syndrome X, is not a disease in itself. Rather, it refers to the presence of a set of physiological signs that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes , heart disease and stroke. It is a cluster of risk factors that increase the chances of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. These physiological signs include Visceral Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Hypertension, High Triglycerides and Low HDL-Cholesterol.
This week just gone was one HARD week - one of those weeks that can derail you entirely.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
