Go-To-Lists Can Help Cut Down Your Stress! Eat Healthy Everyday

We swing in fast food, turn to the gas station or stave off our hunger pangs until we can get something later.  I’m sure it sounds familiar.  The Go-To-List is an easy tool you can add to arm yourself against the nutritional attacks of busyhood. Make a list of 5 foods you generally have on hand that aren’t bad for you.  It’s pretty simple.  Now if I put baby carrots on my list, it might sound [...]

Questions About Dying

          There are numerous questions about what happens when someone dies.  Some of these questions are answered with a thought, a rumor, an old wives tale, or given with false hope.  I had an acquaintance who told me my grandma was now an angel after she passed and she would be able to look down on me from time to time.  I asked her why she thought people turned into angels.

How Many Calories Per Week Do You Have?

It’s really important to know what you are putting in your mouth and when.  There are times we mindlessly go about our day and just start tossing things in because we are so hungry.  By now, most of us know this does damage really quickly, but most don’t know how to stop it. First of all, if we at least have an idea of how many calories we each need and how many calories we each burn off [...]

Don’t Push Back Those Calories

By skimping on breakfast and eating low calories or sugary carbs (like a packaged muffin, bagel, or protein bar) you are pushing back your caloric intake to later in the day. By lunch time most people realize they are getting hungry, but know enough sense to not over eat and destroy their diet (plus they are so busy they don’t have time for a normal lunch so they eat at their desk).  A salad or [...]

Many things can cause weight gain, and yes we know eating chocolate and chips and salsa coupled with lack of exercise isn’t helping the cause, but what about some of the less obvious contributors?  Maybe if we cut out some of these smaller ones listed below, we could still eat our guacamole too! 1. Beauty Products -Obesogens – Can Make You FatNew word? Obesogens are chemical compounds that disrupt normal development and balance of [...]

2-Week Emotional Health Challenge

We chose a ‘Nutritional Health Challenge’ last month and ran with it, but an Emotional one? Here’s the secret – we all could use a little help with our emotions (no one’s perfect), we just don’t all show it in the same way.  I may hide my emotions and reserve it only for my close friends or husband, others may only expose it to God, while others can even try to hid it from Him.

What Legacy Are You Leaving Behind?

I came across a little boy this week who knew Easter to be filled with Easter egg hunts and big meals, like Thanksgiving.  I asked if he went to church on Easter.  He said he stopped going when they moved about 3 years ago.  On St. Patrick’s Day a few weeks ago, millions celebrated with green clothing, green brew, green themed parties and green little leprechauns.  I soon realized many adults don’t know much about [...]
Pre-Workout FoodsI’ve been asked so many times what the best foods to eat prior to a workout would be.  My response, depends on what you will be doing and when. Generally speaking, a CLEAN small snack or meal is all you need prior to a good workout.  Could be within the hour to even 15 minutes prior.   Either way – eat something rather than nothing.This is a great chart. Simple. Post-Workout Foods What should we [...]

Be Strong

Sometimes I don’t feel that strong, in fact, I feel flat out weak – no matter how many pounds I can lift.  Being strong in the physical is very different than being strong in the spiritual.  It’s different in the emotional or mental sense as well.  We may be giants on the outside but at times we can feel as small ias nfants on the inside. We as humans are strong, but we are more than that.  We [...]
