Do Not Worry, Be Happy
One day eggs are good for you and the next eggs are BAD!
Sugar is toxic, so QUIT the sugar, especially white sugar!
Margine vs. Butter; the Battle Continues!
Soda is so EVIL, even diet soda or no calorie, no sugar soda!
I have to draw the line! It just confuses my mind and if I feed into that I am confusing my body too. I do not want to think in terms of good for you, bad for you and really do not go there for you. I believe that in controlling and policing myself and what I eat is a disservice to my whole being!
I think eating too much of anything is not a good health practice! Instead I think in terms of moderation when it comes to cooking, eating and practicing good health!
I am done feeling guilty because I enjoy something, especially food and eating! I am done stressing and worrying about the foods I eat too. I usually eat junk when stressed out. That is where my mindset kicks into the unhealthy and potentially destroys all the hard work I am doing for myself and my whole being!
I know when I limit or even remove certain foods those are the foods I CRAVE THE MOST! Instead remove the “bad” or “really do not go there” labels from those certain foods. I would rather cut back than abstain with certain foods too. Plus there are healthier options available now to make healthier choices!
In creating a healthier lifestyle I had to be really open with myself and look at the whole picture, including any issues with certain foods! I have had to make changes that led to certain foods no longer being an issue. Some things were a quick fix while other things took some time to work out. It takes some patience on my part, but it is a freeing experience in some ways too. I feel good and my whole being is reaping the benefits!
I am about nurturing and nourishing my whole being for good health! I make sure to eat nourishing mixed meals as well as balanced proportions too. I am learning to be more open in trying new foods. I am learning to be more flexible to make tweaks and adjustments as needed.
What I Do For Good Health . . .
- I am working on eating enough food; calories to support activity level.
- I do take the time to eat breakfast.
- I am learning to eat meals at regular-timed intervals throughout the day; helps in not having my blood sugar swing up and down.
- I am trying to eat enough protein too.
- I am working on adding in those healthy fats; hello! nuts, seeds and salmon.
- I have struggled with the hormonal balance and now the metabolic balance creeps up on me every once in a while.
I also make sure I find that balance between work and play and having some FUN! I make sure I am being active and getting exercise. I make sure to get my 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. I am a work in progress when it comes to keeping the everyday stressors on the down low!
