Healthier Living

Spring is a time for making changes in your life

Spring is a time for making changes in your life

You tell me that you already know all about this, but I am going to tell you anyway!

If you do not take care of yourself, eventually bad things come from it.
Indulgences

People who do not take care of themselves lose something in their mind, body and soul.

Too much alcohol can not only make you feel bad the next day. it can also put unneeded stress on your liver, causing difficulties later in life.

Things worth having may be a struggle to reach but you need to move toward the brass ring of life

Nothing in life is easy, especially weight loss and maintenance. If you are like me and have allowed the pendulum to swing up and down over the years, you may need a different plan of action.

Maybe you have to remind yourself that it is about the food you eat, and make some changes there; or maybe it is about your couch potato pleasures where you sit on the couch in front of the TV, and you may need to change that too!

Organization is the key to a great healthy living plan

Have a clean kitchen where it is a pleasure to make meals; your counters are clean, and you have enough food in you fridge to create great, low calorie meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables.

More of the good Carbs Please!

What are the good carbs? They are the ones that take a long time to get though your body; rice, grains, fruits and vegetables. They are the color in your meals; the bright red bell peppers, the fresh orange carrots and the greener than green collard greens! You can eat them raw, you can eat them blanched, you can eat them in soups. And veggies should be your main staple because you can eat as much as you want!

My center  is clear, and I have a friend, Christine who would agree. She believes in this theory on maintaining your weight where your center is your bliss!

To the right are the foods and exercises that you need to do. To the left are  the sweet indulgences that you may want all the time.

And staying in the center with some tiny bits of sweetness is a good goal.
