One Day Home Vacation

1day a month I shut myself away. I prepare by having everything I need or special things I will enjoy alone, food, drinks etc, shut off the phone and just sleep in, meditate-pray, write, whatever I feel. I feel great when I return to the world--rested and renewed.

Diaper Cream!

This might sound obvious but if I think I can get away without a shower after the gym I get "hot spots" in my body creases. It even happens in the summer if it is particularly hot. Use diaper cream with zinc in it on those spots and it will soothe your skin and keep it healthy.

Learn to burn

Educate yourself. Become an expert on yourself. The recommendations of the USDA, the AHA and the ADA are basics for avoiding disease generally gotten from statistics. There are numerous resources for learning to gain optimal health. Research and don't take any one source as the last word.

Take Care of All of You

Taking care of yourself means not just your body. Talk to your family doctor if sleep disturbances, depression, or anxiety are concerns that good nutrition and exercise are not easily combating or creating overwhelming stumbling blocks to getting started with healthy lifestyle changes.

The wonder spice!

Cinnamon is so cool! I have high blood sugar, and no med care to help. Cinnamon has helped to bring my BS down some, and I feel much better.

This time it's not about the weight

This time, for me, it's about the lifestyle change. I know it sounds boring, but something has clicked in my head. The weight loss is definitely something I want, but the exercise and eating healthy are really more important to me because I don't want to have to think about my weight again.

Plan Plan Plan

What has always helped for me is to plan - plan my food, plan my cardio, plan my strength. Don't just say you're going to do it, write down or enter your food into the nutrition tracker. Schedule your cardio/strength out for the week - track it in the fitness tracker.

drink, drink, and drink more water!

The most important thing in staying healthy and weight loss is to drink, drink drink! So many people struggle with it. I bought a SP water bottle and take it everywhere I go... it keeps the water cool and fresh. And you feel so much better when you are hydrated.
