Healthy is Not a Size….It’s a Lifestyle

healthy isn't a size

One of the things that is fabulous about being a woman is we are supposed to have curves, and we come in all different shapes and sizes!!! The most important part of being healthy is lifestyle not our size! There are many components to a healthy lifestyle, and it is a large subject! But I will hit on some of them just to give you food for thought!

We are a work in progress, and these areas are not stagnant and will change. Sometimes we have to make changes to bring them back in balance. The goal is to infuse your life with joy, satisfaction and health by having these components in balance: Creativity, Finances, Career, Education, Health, Physical Activity, Home Cooking, Home Environment, Relationships, Social Life, Joy, and Spirituality. We are all constantly a work in progress.

Embrace the now, dream and plan the future, reevaluate often, and don’t be afraid to make changes! ❤️❤️❤️

Mango Orange Refresher

This refreshing drink is bursting with vitamin C and skin glowing Mango!  The real ginger aids in digestion and is delicious with the other flavors and sparkling water. It is delightful!

Mango Orange Refresher So Delicious with Vitamin C and Real Ginger

I am not on the low carb band wagon. I actually tried it a few years ago, and found that the activity levels I sustain all day, and my hormone balance, requires moderate carbohydrates, and the benefits of fruit in my diet were fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, disease risk reduction, and glowing skin! I am a strong advocate for real food carbohydrates in the form of starchy vegetables and fruit, as well as other health promoting grains if tolerated. We are all unique bioindividuals and need different things at different times and stages of our lives. I have successfully added back in quinoa and Greek yogurt occasionally much to my delight!
