Healthy Heart, Healthy Body

Fact: Heart Attacks are the #1 killer of Americans. Check out the American Heart Association's web-site. The food we consume affects our LDL cholesterol levels (the bad) and our HDL (the good) Foods high in saturated fat, & hydrogenated fat cause plaque to build up in our arteries...which in turn can cause angina (pain) in your heart and possibly even a heart attack. We not only have to worry about the amount of calories we consume, but the quality. Complex carbs=good, Simple carbs=bad.

Centering

Close your eyes and take 3 long slow cleansing breaths. It brings you to center....brings you to aware...then begin eating. It releases pent up energy that drives you to eat mindlessly and brings you to smell, see, and take pleasure in your food.

Reducing Stress

Reducing stress, as we have all been told, keeps us healthy and helps us lose weight. I do one or more of 3 things daily to reduce stress. Pray the Psalms. Meditate. Listen to quiet music and read. emoticon

Get your 8 glasses of water

Every morning on the way to work I stop at McDonald's and purchase a Large (32 oz.) UNsweet tea; it only costs me $1.08. After I finish my tea (I commute 50 miles one way) I refill that same 32 oz. cup with water a minimum of 2 times per day. On average, I drink over 100 oz. of water a day that way.

Reducing stress from neck & shoulder pain

I have found that the warm up neck movements in my Tai Chi class are helpful in eliminating my neck pain. The slow deliberate neck movements help even my stiff arthritic joints.

You deserve it!

Sometimes spending a little extra money on a bag of apple slices or a kit with hummus and pretzels is okay. If these smaller portion sizes (or convenient yet healthy foods) allow me to stay on track, it's worth it! Plus, it can actually save me money because they don't end up in the trash! emoticon
