Have you made a new year's resolution? To be honest, I do not; because, every single day is the time to do something.
Back in the day when I did try the resolution thing, I would overwhelm myself with many new ideas, only to fall off the wagon. Later, what worked, was when I stuck to one goal and gave it my all.
So, to all of you who are frustrated or trying very hard, maybe you should prioritize; pick one goal to work towards. For those of you who are achieving your goal, keep up the great work.
We all have slips; but, I like to see it as time off or a well deserved treat.
Therefore, no stressing over resolutions just may be the trick.
Has anyone else heard about spiking food nutrients by using a blender? How is that possible? Do I want the nutrients in the blender or in my body for optimum performance?
I will continue chewing my food to keep all the nutrients as fuel for my daily activities. Therefore, for anyone else who wants to turn their food into superfood, and do not have a digestion condition to deal with,... chew, chew, chew, and chew some more to pulverize the meal for the most nutritional value.
The blender is fun and used for treats now and then; but, it is easier for me to chew; not to mention, I am working muscles.
Happy thanksgiving to you all. I hope no one stresses over what to eat, when, or how much. This is a day for gratitude, not deprivation or worry. As long as you have your meal balanced, you will be fine. Go ahead and have that treat, or two, just do not make a meal of the processed sweets. No worries, go enjoy your thanksgiving, which is also part of a healthy lifestyle.
Haha, just as I mention in the last blog, we need to be in shape for life. Hurricane Sandy may have knocked out our power, but, she did not knock us off our feet. Please remember to do something, anything, to be ready for challenges. I do not get upset when I miss a workout, because, it is most likely due to circumstances out of my control, leading to manual labor which is a workout. So, there you have it: do not stress, just take it one day at a time, or like me, one task at a time. Then, be sure to get a good night's sleep,... when the chance first arises,... sometimes...that is another blog for another day. Take care.
Everyone's idea of a healthy and fit body is different. What remains the same is being capable of achieving a goal; so, that is your answer to what being healthy and fit means. It means taking care of the children 24/7 even when the parent is bone tired, to an athlete winning the gold medal at the neighborhood race or the Olympics...the list goes on indefinitely.
Let's all strive to be our best possible, in order to handle what life dishes out...healthy for life's expected and unexpected, good and bad times. By being prepared with a fit body and mind, the stresses of life will seem smaller and be easier to manage.
Here's to making healthy and fit choices.
