This Is Not A Diet

not a diet but a healthy lifestyle

 

Did you know that I have lost 30lbs!

 

Actually I’ve lost WAY more than 30lbs if you count all the times I’ve lost 10lbs then gained 5lbs then lost 8lbs then gained 2lbs.. hahaha.

It is SOOO much more than just WEIGHT, I am SHAPING my MIND!

For me this is not a diet, it is not a fad or trend.
I am CONSTANTLY learning, growing, diving in deeper.. falling off the wagon.. JUMPING back in FULL FORCE.. struggling EVERY.DANG.DAY and SUCCEEDING!

It is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE for me.
I want to LEARN as much as I possibly can about being as healthy as I can. And I have changed SO much since starting my journey. I am a different person.

AND I am learning more and more how to help OTHERS get in shape and make HEALTH a lifestyle change for them too! It is no longer JUST ABOUT ME!!
I have a OBLIGATION to society to help others CHANGE THEIR LIFE and the life of their FAMILY BETTER!! <3 <3 I have researched the heck out of gut health, diabetes control, IBS, skin disorders, etc. I’ve just finished my THIRD ONLINE COLLEGE NUTRITION CLASS to help me BE BETTER!(and NO I am not interested in getting a degree or changing my profession, just picking and choosing what I want to learn FOR ME- I have no desire to change professions right now) All I want is to STAY CURIOUS! To KEEP LEARNING and continue to better the world a little everyday, one person at a time!

We should all do our part to BE HEALTHIER and help those around us to be healthier too!

Pass it on! Keep learning! Team up with a friend.

Take A Stretch Break

Often hit by the 2 p.m. slump? A new study suggests a quick fix for those daily lags in energy. And no, it’s not a cup of coffee.

Periodic stretching throughout the day can be beneficial for our health.

How?  We all know that sitting at work all day can cause health problems, but how can stretching help our body?

Movement and exercise stimulate flow throughout the body, which leads to a brief period of hyperoxygenation in the brain. The phenomenon lasts only a minute or two, but the effects linger – increasing both energy and attentiveness.

Take a 5-minute stretch break – stand up, roll your shoulders around, and do a couple of air squats, or just take a lap around the office. Sitting all day is terrible for your body, but you can avoid most of the damage just by taking the time to stretch every half hour or so throughout the day.

Other ways to incorporate movement into your work day:  taking the stairs, standing up during meetings, walking around the office more and switching out traditional office chairs for exercise balls all help.
