Eat Well


Ohmigosh!  These are all so very true.  People get wound up about what they SHOULD be eating that they forget to include the foods they love.  Don't make eating well a chore; it definitely doesn't have to be!

Be Active

Fat and muscle and weight loss all go hand-in-hand.  And, equally confusing, there are a lot of myths out there about reducing one or the other to lose weight.  It's hard to know what to believe, what to ignore.  Here are a few of the biggie myths debunked.

Let's move!


This workout is 7 cycles of the same basic moves, but with each cycle, the moves get more ... energetic and you'll add on another move.  Each move is 40 seconds on, 10 seconds off.  The description of each move is a little lengthy, but try to pay attention to it, as it will give you directions for the move, and if you should do one side or the other.  Good luck! http://www.intervaltimer.com/timers/8229636

Spiritual Health

Self awareness can only take you so far.  It’s important, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes the clue to what is going on under your hood actually lies with those around you.  https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2018/03/you-dont-know-yourself-as-well-as-you-think-you-do/554612/

Mental & Emotional Health


This is one of those 'falls into so many categories' articles but mostly lets focus on the 'happy hormone".  Why should you get together regularly with your besties?  Because doing so spurs your brain to release oxytocin which is the 'feel good' hormone that will, indeed, make you happier.  Happier, less stressed and more agreeable.  Win win!

I saw this over the weekend and it made my laugh and also be so very happy for what exercise looks like today. https://www.runnersworld.com/news/g26821764/exercise-the-year-you-were-born/ 100% agree with this. 100%. https://www.swiss-miss.com/2019/03/stop-apologizing.html New recipe: Yes, there are recipes for these all over the internet.  Probably because they are so chocolatey and good!  Hope you try them soon. https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/single-post/2019/03/19/Recipe-Dark-Chocolate-Avocado-Truffles Are we really that different than our kids?  And wouldn't it help bridge communication gaps if we could see how similar we are, instead? https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/single-post/2019/03/21/Same-but-different Be your best,  s
