Sticking to the healthy New Year’s resolution

Happy New Year!  It’s the first day of a new year.  A day when many are planning out what the next year holds, dreaming big, making goals, and of course – coming up with those New Year’s resolutions.  One of the most popular resolutions is, of course, to lose weight.  Or as I prefer to look at it – start and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  This is a great goal and what an appropriate time.  We have all indulged over…

A Health Lesson: From Children

For any of you who have children, nephews, nieces, friends with babies, have babysat, etc. you probably know that children are on a pretty solid routine.  They get up around the same time every day, eat at the same time, get tired and need naps at the same time, you get the point.  What happens when they get off their routine?  Well, I hear things can get ugly. Thinking further about this, I realized those sweet little poop machines are…

Running With Asthma

I am sure most of you have heard the saying “it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle”.  Well, there is a reason that statement has been repeated by so many health professionals and in so many articles.  Because it’s TRUE. Whatever that means to you…

Need some motivation? Maybe you should go shopping!

My in-laws were very generous to me on my birthday and gave me a gift card to a great store for workout clothes.  I was really excited when I got it!  Surprisingly, I only own one piece of clothing from this particular store.  I used to just always buy stuff that was on sale or cheaper.  I figured that I was just going to sweat in it so what does it matter?  Turns out it might matter a lot! I…

The end of my challenge: Days 15 – 21

Monday, August 26– Day 15 A job.  Although I sometimes struggle with the career path I have taken or have a stressful day at work I am still thankful that I do have a job.  I have a place where I can try hard to show my intelligence, my work ethic, and also have a little fun with some great co-workers. Online shopping.  I was able to buy some things I needed today online and I find it amazing how…
