Happy February guys! But Ummm where did January go? If your feeling how I’m feeling than you know that January was like was a blur and went by wayyyy to fast. Whoa 2019 slow down. For those of you who made resolutions, you may have decided that you are over it. But don’t feel down the month of January may be over but every day is a new day to start fresh.
So my question to all of you is how are you taking care of yourself going into this New Year. The focus of this blog will be on Nutrition, Health, and Wellness. Three of my most favorite subjects but where do you begin? The first thing you need to really think about and evaluate is how do I currently eat. Then you need to think about how do I take care of myself? did you already get your yearly physical and are you aware of everything that is going on with your health such as high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension etc. Then you will want to think wellness how am I exactly taking care of my body? Do I exercise, do yoga, run, jog, or meditate?
These are all questions that we must ask ourselves. Yes, we have to evaluate ourselves because who else will? Once you get in the frame of mind of making a change, change will happen. Remember that change is the only constant thing in life. When it came to myself before I got diagnosed with Acid Reflux LPR, I was very stubborn. I just ate anything I wanted not taking into account what the foods I was eating was really doing to my body. My main weakness was sweets and still is but I am now better at controlling myself. Yes, sugar is important because it provides fuel to our bodies and can give us a burst of energy but guess what happens when that burst of energy goes away? Correct you look for more sugar and more sugar to get you through the day. Not a good pattern to follow believe it or not sugar is not that great for the body and we should only consume it in small amounts 20 grams per day to be exact. Sugar can cause a lot of diseases in the body and be harmful to our Cells to some extent when you look at nutrition on a scientific level which I will not dive into at this very moment but I will soon (LOL).
But I hope this post will allow you to really think about your overall health and where you stand today, and the changes you want to make for 2019!
