I need to exercise!!!

So I love exercise and haven't been able to for almost two weeks. This is sooooo hard for me, but this Monday hopefully I will be released to exercise.  I am going to be ready to go to the gym as soon as they say yes.  Maybe I should go dressed in my workout clothes, so I can go straight to the Y right after. Yes that is what I am going to do. 

Yes I may have to start slow, but will just be happy to be there.

Once you start to exercise, no matter how you start, your body will crave it!!!

A Healthy Body Is A Happy Body

I am breaking my fast with a banana/blueberry/water homemade smoothie. Juice is still a part of my daily routine and for the next few days I will add in one salad a day and soon move to steamed veggies. Breaking a fast correctly is of the utmost importance, if any questions just send me a comment.

Juicing is soooo great for the body! It heals, restores, detoxes and energizes. Today is day 7 of juice and there have been ups and downs, but I know my body is happy with me.
I have really been enjoying watermelon juice and carrot/lemon juice.

Juicing Again!

So I am juicing again for a short time.  Juicing is healing to the body and I have a small health issue that I need to address.  Knowing that sugar can feed many things, and processed foods feed them as well; I will be cleaning up my eating habits even more.

I choose to conquer health the natural way, because medications usually have to many side affects. All things start somewhere and it's usually with what we eat on a regular basis.  This healthy lifestyle is a journey and I haven't always eaten the way I do today. 

Remember you reap what you sow and for many years I was a sugar junky!

Well anyway just giving you an update on my journey :)
Take care of yourself and never give up!

The Struggles of Eating

So you may wonder, do I struggle with eating healthy? Of course I do, I like fun foods to. Recently I discovered (not that I didn't know this) that certain foods bring comfort. Growing up, whenever I finished my plate it was an automatic that dessert would follow. Over the years of doing that and even into adulthood, habits can be hard to break and easy to fall back into if I don't ask myself why am I eating this again????
There are many foods I can't eat because of food allergies, but health food stores also have substitutions for some of these things. Why? Why? Why?
Usually I don't fall to hard and have to remember not to beat myself up to badly about it. Knowing I am further along in my journey of health than where I started helps me motivate myself and remember it is a journey, not a destination. Learning and growing along the way is suppose to be fun and enlightening.

Let's remember to not discount our accomplishments of our life journey!!!
