We are day 25....I can't believe it. Where is everyone at...how are the lifestyle changes you are making going? I will tell you one thing that I have noticed, since stopping the wine consumption....I can really smell the booze. My husband drinks his beer, and boy does it stink. I can't believe I was drinking that as well. At least it is keeping me disgusted enough to continue not to drink it. All I have been drinking is my water and black coffee. The water makes the inside of my body feel so clean. I really like that feeling. The lifestyle changes are getting easier as the days go by. Tonight I am hosting Bunco with my girlfriends. We always have drinks, munchies and a fantastic time. Tonight we will be having healthy munchies along with some spirit but I will be having the healthy drink without the spirit. I have chosen the watermelon mojito's; it is made with fresh fruits with spirit...I will have it without the spirit. It really is about knowing what is coming up and modifying what you are going to have or serve. It is just that simple. That way you don't feel like you are left out. I think that is one of the most important keys to learn. When we feel left out, it is so easy for us to abandon our goals. But if we modify we won't have to feel left out. We will feel fantastic and a part of the group. It is all in our mindset and attitude. I love it!!! Just some simple changes can really set our goals on fire!!
Today's Tip #20 from "30 Quick Tips for Better Health", by Don Verhulst, MD., Eat Meat with Care. So who's to say if we should be meat eaters or vegetarians? It really is the opinion of experts as to what we should eat, and the experts don't always follow what they themselves say. Here is what I am thinking for this tip; it is okay to eat meat. You don't need it at every meal, but it is good for your body. When you are eating free range or grass fed meats it is healthier for you. Meat that is raised in a factory is pumped with antibiotics and the animals are not happy. Grass fed and free range meats, the animals are living off the land and are happy. They are not pumped with antibiotics that are making us sick. If you are going to eat meat, eat a healthier meat. Try to cut down how much meat you are eating as well....add in some fish. You will definitely notice your body becoming healthier. If you can't afford the free range or grass fed meat....no worries, choose more fish in your diet and use the regular meat as a treat every now and again.
There it is my friends....Keep going with your new lifestyle changes. We are only a few days away from being on this journey for 4 weeks. How exciting is that. I love doing this with all of you. Making sure you are not married to that scale. I know it is hard...I am separating myself from my scale...keep your goals as a gauge as to how you are doing. Also, think twice before you are putting anything in your mouth that is questionable. And, make sure you are giving yourself a little make over so you can see the changes you are making to your body.
Have a FANTASTIC DAY my friends. Chat with you tomorrow!!!
