Balance

I went to a new doctor this week and as I was sitting there explaining my health history, I had a revelation.  My story sounds crazy.  It’s all imbalanced.  I hung out at the extremes.

I’m still working on putting it all down so you can see how I got to where I am today but here is the short version:

I ate low calorie
I ate low fat
I ate high fat
I didn’t eat carbs
I avoided dairy
I ate high carb
I juiced everyday
I exercised 1-2 hours almost every day

My diet was all over the place.  I wasn’t balancing out my activity with the food I needed to sustain said activities.

Plus, I kept expecting Continue reading

Resolution Recap

Wow – can you believe it’s almost February?!

It’s hard not to think of January 1st as a new beginning.  That one day, although it may appear to be just like any other, can mean we’re starting fresh.  Clean slate.  Forget what happened last year, it’ll be different THIS year.

I always think making resolutions at the start of a new year will get me motivated.  But a few weeks later, the sentiment of the New Year is gone, I’m back to my old routine and I forgot what I was going to be resolute about.

Why does this happen?  I had such high hopes, but was I setting myself up for success? Continue reading
