3 Foods To Eat More Of This Easter

 

It’s that time again Easter! The traditional route would be to talk about chocolate eggs, or a recipe for some cake… not happening! Word of warning, this is only for the serious people and Di1’s who are committed and laser focused to actually see out their Weight loss goals/Health this year.

If you are and you’re still reading this please (Click Here) this will really help you further.

Now it’s time to share with you 3 foods to eat more of this Easter… enjoy.

 

Lamb- Other than the whole Jesus being the sacrificial Lamb of God which is typically eaten on Easter Sunday, the other reasons you should eat more lamb this Easter include high protein (25 or 26 grams) which contains all of the beneficial amino acids you could ask for your body’s maintenance and growth, Vitamins such as Zinc, Iron & B12 and Stamina & Muscle function.

Lamb also helps prevent you from getting Anaemia. In fact the reason why most Vegetarians are more likely to have Anaemia over meat- eaters is because they don’t eat any meat, and meat has lots of Iron in it.

 

 

Nuts- If not allergic, are a great source of fibre and would recommend you eat these (Click here) what’s good also about nuts is that you can share them out individually for e.g if you have kids you can put them into a plastic Easter egg inside your basket, or hide them and then have yourself an Easter egg hunt.

Even foods such as Wholegrain cereal, Trail mix & Seeds are a healthy alternative to having chocolate eggs. All the healthy snacks just mentioned have something in common… they keep you fuller for way longer, which is good if your dinner is taking longer than expected to be ready.

DID YOU KNOW: If you’re having a hard time fitting nuts into your eating habits (Click Here)

 

 

Fruits- If you have a sweet tooth this is the replacement and it’s healthy for you. All fruits are so filling and contain a vast amount of health benefits (Click Here) you can cut them up and put them in a container, that way you will not get bored of eating the same fruit over and over again in the Easter holidays.

It goes without saying; buy real fruit and not any artificial ones, always check for freshness too. I’d advise you also to read the labels, but most of  you out there if you do bother to read the labels… don’t know how or what you are looking for. Sound like you? (Click Here) .

 

THAT’S IT!

10 Best Proteins For Vegetarians And Vegans

If you are a Vegetarian  or a Vegan you’ll of heard the following question lots of times; “So how do you get your protein?” as many non Vegetarians  and Vegans  have concerns over you not having the right amount of protein intake.

Well they don’t have to worry, because it is possible for you to get the sufficient amount of protein and all the nutrients you need if you are a vegetarian or vegan.

Of course many plant foods have much more protein than others. Consuming higher- protein aids Fullness, Weight loss & Muscle strength.

 

Here are the 10 Best Proteins For Vegetarians And Vegans  

 

Tofu- Tofu AKA Bean curd comes from soybeans. Now Soybeans are well known for a being a whole source of protein, this means that they provide your body with all the amino acids it needs during the day.

Tofu is made from bean curd and is pressed together. As you’ll know already Tofu doesn’t really have much taste at all, though it easily absorbs the flavor of the ingredients you prepare it with.

Tofu can be used in a variety of different meals, from Soups to Burgers. It also contains Calcium, Iron and has between 9 to 19 grams of protein per 100 grams.

 

Quinoa- Is a cereal grain, but unlike other cereal grains it does not grow on the grasses. Non grasses would be a terrible name to call something so they went with “Pseudocereal”

Instead. You’ll get at least 7 to 9 grams of protein per cup which is a complete source of protein for you. Also Quinoa is a good source of Fibre  (Click Here), Carbs, Magnesium & Iron.

 

Chickpeas- Is a legume with a high amount of protein content in it, It contains 15 grams of protein per cup and it is also a great source of Iron, Folate, Potassium, Complex Carb, etc.

Eating a lot of Chickpeas will also help to decrease cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, reduce your belly fat and help control your blood sugar levels.

 

Lentils- Mean business they have 18 grams of protein per cup, and that means they are a great source of protein. They can be used in many different dishes, ranging from Dal to fresh Salads.

Lentils also provide you with about half of your recommended daily fibre intake. The type of fibre found in lentils has been proven to feed the good bacteria in your large intestine, which of course makes for a healthy gut. Lentils also contain a good amount of antioxidants.

 

  

Spelt & Teff- Are ancient grains. Other ancient grains include Barley and Farro. Spelt though, is a type of wheat and contains gluten, but Teff comes  from annual grass… which means it’s gluten- free.

Spelt & Teff provide 10 to 11 grams of protein per cup, making them the highest of the ancient grains in the world! Both are fantastic sources of  nutrients such as Iron, Fibre, Magnesium & Zinc, etc.

Spelt & Teff are versatile alternatives to your common grain, such as rice and wheat. They can be used in many foods such as Risotto or baked goods.

 

Green Peas- Contain 9 grams of protein per cup, which is slightly more than a cup of Milk (8 grams). Green peas covers your Fibre, and has Vitamins A, K & C plus folate in them.

Green peas are a good source of Zinc & Copper too.

 

Oats- Are a very delicious and easy way to get into adding more protein to your meals right away. Just half a cup of dry Oats provides you with about 6 grams of protein & 4 grams of fibre.

Although Oats are not really considered complete protein, they do contain higher- quality protein than other more well known and consumed grains like Wheat or Rice.

 

Amaranth- Is another “Pseudocereal” and contain 8 to 9 grams of protein per cup and like Quinoa is a complete source of protein, which is very rare among grains & “Pseudocereals”.

Amaranth is a good source of Complex Carbs, Iron & Magnesium.

 

Ezekiel Bread- Is made from organic, whole grains and legumes. These include Millet, Wheat, Spelt, Barley, and Soybeans & Lentils. Just two slices of Ezekiel bread contains approximately 8 grams of protein, which is slightly more than your average bread (Click Here).

 

 

Soy Milk- Is made from Soybeans and fortified with vitamins and minerals and is a great alternative of course to cow’s milk. It contains 7 grams of protein per cup, plus it’s an great source of Calcium, Vitamin B12 & D… Bear in mind that Soy milk and Soybeans do not naturally contain Vitamin B12, so picking a fortified variety is not recommended.

Soy milk is found in most supermarkets. It’s also very versatile and can be consumed in many different ways. This goes without saying… go for the ones without the higher sugar content in them.

Conclusion

Protein deficiency among Vegetarians & Vegans is very real. Nonetheless these 10 options will soon put an end to that, or improve your health even without having anything wrong with you at all.

This is also fantastic for anyone who has only just started eating like this, and was unsure what the best things to eat were.  

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

10 Reasons Why You Should Eat Real Food

 

Real food will always be the ingredient; this is why there is no need for any ingredients list because you know what you are getting it’s fresh and whole. It’s very much unprocessed and is free of any sort of lab additives and instead is packed with pure nutrients.

 

Great this would be the end of the post… Unfortunately unlike thousands of years ago Fast food Fast Junk  has become a thing, & it’s being manipulated and sold to you by big companies as actually food that’s good for you.. or won’t kill you!

 

The reason why it has become a thing is the age old argument; “It’s more convenient” to which I add, “if you’re feeling suicidal”. The question I’ll ask you is, has this type of eating made you healthier or happier? Look around you at current world events and answer the same question.

 

Switching from junk to real food will be the best thing you can do for your health thus far, maintaining this will lead to great health and higher quality of life.

With so many suffering illness/ injuries and dying because of junk related causes, I feel it’s only right to share with you…

 

The 10 reasons to eat real food below.

 

Real Food Is Packed With Pure Nutrients- When you are eating something that is unprocessed animal or plant based foods it will have the vitamins and minerals you need for great health.

For example take Broccoli, it contains Vitamins= A, B1, B2, B6 & C or Chicken breast which contains Vitamins = B1, B2, B12, A, E, K & D.

There are so many more I could mention, but basically all real food  will have more than one Vitamin, mineral or some other  beneficial nutrient in it (Click Here)  

I would also like to point out that there’s no chance of you overdosing from real unprocessed food… which cannot be said for these supplements AKA Dielements that those big companies who don’t give a damn about your health and underpaid / can’t be bothered doctors are telling you to take.

 

 

Real Food Is Good For The Heart- Real food does not equal heart failure nor heartbreak, just packed with antioxidants and nutrients that support your heart health… not end it.

Example of this would be healthy fats or Magnesium (Click Here) When you eat real food it reduces inflammation, which is known to be one of the key reasons for heart diseases in the first place.

 

 

Real Food Is High In Healthy Fats- No I’m not talking about processed fats found in vegetable oils (Click Here), I’m talking about  natural fats which are not harmful at all and are  incredibly healthy for you (Click Here).

Here’s assuming you clicked on (Click Here). To add to that coconut oil is really good for you also and has been shown to increase weight loss. Also fatty fish such as salmon, sardines and herring are fantastic sources of  healthy fats.

DID YOU KNOW?: Nuts & Seeds, Avocados & Whole Milk are high in healthy fats also.

 

Real Food Is Music To A Diabetics Ears –  Types 1 or 2 it really does not matter eating  foods high in plant and unprocessed animal materials will help reduce blood sugar levels in your body and in anyone else who’s eating badly and is probably just one mouthful away from Type 2 diabetes.

DID YOU KNOW ?: More 300 million people have diabetes worldwide. That number is expected to surpass well over 600 million within the next 25 years!

 

 

Real Food Is Low In Sugar- As you may know already eating sugary  junk can  will increase the risk of obesity, which will lead to type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and heart disease.

Real food for the most part is generally low in sugar and isn’t very sweet. Yeah even though fruit contains sugar (Click Here), it’s also high in water & fibre which makes it less concentrated and is not added sugar put in by man… or woman which sends the sugar levels soaring to illness and then death such as sodas or processed foods would.

 

 

Real Food Is High In Fibre- Fibre has so many health benefits (Click Here). This includes helping you feel more full yet with fewer calories, and also helps your digestive system function better/ overall metabolic health.

Foods such Avocados, flax seeds as well as beans & legumes are all high in healthy fibre.  Real food is the way of getting your source of fibre, not taking supplements for it  will cost you in the end… not talking money….

 

 

 

 

The Variety Of Real Food- Eating the same foods over and over again can get really old… fast. It’s also healthier to include many different foods in your daily meals.

There seems to be a myth with healthy eating that it’s only dry salads and seeds to eat  etc, and that couldn’t be further from the truth.

There are hundreds of different real food options… just take a look at my meal plan (Click Here) including a wide variety of fish, meat, dairy, fruit & veg, nuts, legumes, whole grains and seeds.

Make a real statement by regularly eating foods you’ve never eaten before or don’t regularly eat, it may be a food that you’ve always wondered about but never eaten (That picture up top is Kangaroo meat).

In doing this you’ll not only grow as a person, if you end up enjoying it you’d have expanded your options which = less of the same meals over and over again…

 

 

 

 

Real Food Cost Less… Long Term- It always astounds me when people say that they do not eat healthy because it’s too expensive. I mean you’re  right the junk is cheaper… it did come from the trash.

Where you lose is the fact that whilst you keep an extra $1.56 in your pocket in the short term (That’s some pettiness right there) in the long run the cost will be even higher for you because you decided to buy  cheaply and poorly.

What I am referring to is you’re having to deal with chronic lifestyle diseases which came from your decision to be cheap, petty & in a false delusion that you got one over on the supermarket.

Obesity, Heart disease & Diabetes are no joke, especially if you are living in a place where you have to pay medical bills or in place where the doctors and nurses are just understaffed and you’re on a long waiting list, if at all!

So the question is  So What… yeah you may have to pay that extra bit more to eat food  but that’s surely better than eating junk? (Junk is not food remember)  and surely it’s better to be in good health than to be suffering from chronic diseases. (Click Here)

DID YOU KNOW?: You’ve got to be eating these foods to improve your health (Click Here)

 

 

Real Food Makes You Happier- It’s only natural when you know you are making the right healthy moves for yourself, or even helping  your family or friends… it makes you that much happier. For all those that have stress before bed (Click Here)  you will rest easier knowing that you did good, plus your body will feel better and you will just know and feel the effects of eating healthy. It’s one of those things where you have to be doing it to know about it, no old tales of how I used to will suffice… it will only leave you depressed and digging deeper into the trash for more  Junk to eat.

 

 

Real Food Is… Real Delicious- This goes without saying, when you eat real food it tastes real good. All of the flavours & textures, the freshness,the smell just can’t be beaten… unprocessed food is undeniable delicious.

All it takes is some rewiring from how you’ve been blindly eating beforehand… just because mostly everyone else around you has being doing it. So you’ve been following suit, or you simply never really knew what you were missing. We as a society completely destroy anyone who we find has had plastic procedures, for not being “REAL”, yet we continue to fake eat and don’t follow up with the same ridicule… I see inconsistency, I see hypocrisy.

 

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

What do you make of all this?

What are your thoughts on real food cost?

What was the biggest lesson you learned here?

What will you do right now to improve your health?

Why You Should Set Goals & Forget Resolutions

I’ve been asked a lot recently “I know you encourage us to have health goals, but what about health resolutions?” or “What are your resolutions this year?” Now it’s thanks to all of you why I’ve been inspired to create this for you guys/girls.

My answer to these questions are… What about Health resolutions?/ None whatsoever because resolutions suck.  I promise the rest of this won’t be so blunt… the depth is below.

 

So without further ado here is why you should set goals & forget resolutions.

The Thing With Resolutions

As you know at the start of every New Year it is tradition to be pondering about the future, and all we want to accomplish in the months that lie ahead.

Many of you around the end of December (Click Here) convinced yourselves that you were going to be committed, which I cannot knock and is a good start.

Where the issue lies is that the focus tends to be a lot on what we don’t want to do rather than what you actually want to do. That along with the fact that there is no real plan on how to sustain a resolution for the latter months, let alone a whole entire year!

There is no depth with a resolution it’s a few worded bad speech for most of you. Some of you will write them down, though again there is no depth  e.g

“I want to lose weight”  

“I want to go to bed on time”

“ I want to learn a language”

You see how resolutions has become like wishing… you just say something and then only do it for a bit or worse just wait for something to happen, then of course nothing happens.

Lastly if that wasn’t enough for you, the fact that it’s tagged as “New Year’s Resolution”( As if this is the only time you can set them)  is not very helpful, and very misleading.

 

What Should I do Instead?

You Should Set Goals & Forget Resolutions. Dedicate the time and put your full effort towards setting yourself goals, and taking action towards them daily… then evaluate and make the adjustments if necessary.

Below are some tips to help you with your goal setting.

 

Why Are You Doing This?This is a serious questions you need to ask yourself  (Click Here), “why do I  want to set myself health goals?”Why do I want to set myself any goals?” “Why am I doing this ?” and each answer will be different of course.

It’s important to know the real reason why you are doing this, because you’ll be spending a huge chunk of your time, if not all of it on your goals.

So if this sounds like too much for you, or you just don’t want to commit to it because of whatever excuse then this isn’t for you… & if below abysmal, low or mediocre living is how you want to bow out then I’m not going to argue with you.

But on the other hand if you are committed, have a strong reason why you will be spending so much time on your goals and are willing to take action right away (Right now) you will really go far in this and achieve so much in a lifetime.

Remember it’s people who don’t know why and have low drive, who spend their every waking day in pain… that’s both physically and mentally. Don’t let the why haunt you for the rest of your life, find out and take action either way, or you’ll regret it.

 

Have Depth… Go DEEP- You know when I said before about finding out why you are doing this, well to find this you need to go deep within yourself. Be very specific so that you can actually see yourself progress in your goals, you can cross them out as you go when you’ve completed them.

What will then happen from the being so specific and going so deep with your goals is habit change, and then achievement… then over time a lot more achievement and on and on.

When you’re immersed into your goals that deep and you’re crossing them off, you’ll gain confidence also and go bigger and bolder than you’ve ever done before in your life.

 

Plan Out What You Are Doing- Once we have them we tend to think about our goals a lot, but it’s important to have written or typed out somewhere. Simply just retained in your brain is no good at all, that’s that resolution habit we want out of you, as what will happen is you will forget about it.

You have to understand this is not forgetting an item at the shops, this is your goals and if it means anything to you it will be written or typed out for you to see, recommit to and work towards daily.

The fun part is if you like to break down your goals into smaller pieces you can do, rather than having the ultimate result you want at the end, you can break it down from yearly to monthly to weekly to daily… in fact for most of you this is the way to go.

I would most certainly encourage having daily goals along with your longer goals, this way you will see how much you are achieving on a daily basis and will build up your self confidence and  belief.

 

Set A Deadline- As scary as this may sound to a lot of you there really needs to be a deadline set in place. If it’s just up in the air with no date, it’s really nothing more than a wish just wrapped a little better than a resolution.

Deadlines force you to think about what it will take to accomplish your goals, I know that this will encourage you to think deeper because now you are required to take immediate steps, as there is an allotted time towards getting from where you are to where you want to be in the future.

I find it also helps priorities the most important things to be done first, and drop the not so important things to the back of the line. Deadlines will also push you in the long run, because you’ll want to have it done at that point… when you do hit it exactly when you planned it, you will feel that more grateful and happy you decided to set a deadline.

 

Make Adjustments- In life it’s inevitable you’re going to have to make adjustments, goals are no different. And this really goes hand in hand with what I was saying about deadlines, so say you don’t quite make the deadline you had set then what? You change the deadline!

Yes it’s that simple, your life doesn’t end because you missed the deadline… all you do is make adjustments and set another one. Over time in the course of the year you may find out that the goals you have for you health are no longer what you want anymore, rather than just sticking to them… just because, I advise you make the adjustment to suit where you want to go in your life.

It could be as simple as one of your daily goals where you decided that you have to be somewhere today and for whatever reason you decided you’re better off focusing on being somewhere else… make the adjustments.

Just because it’s written does not mean it’s set in stone, never forget that you can change it.

 

Where Is Your Accountability? – If you just keep your goals to yourself and nobody knows about them it’s easy to say “oh well” and then go away from your goals.

If you tell at least one person about your goals this will hold you accountable to someone, it makes it that much more real…

Plus you’ve put it out there into the atmosphere to be manifested providing you’re still putting in the work (Of course you are).  Another good way is writing a definitive chief aim or  a statement and keeping that with you.

Letting yourself know about what you are doing,with the date you decided to make the decision and of course the deadline day for you to achieve your goals. This will also stop you from falling off by you keeping it with you and reading it often or daily if your fire needs reigniting after you rise out of bed every morning… or afternoon.

Conclusion

 As you can see now there are many benefits to having goals than simply making a resolution. We’ve discovered that goals direct your focus and attention. Providing you set deadlines and go deep and know your why. They help you become more persistent with your targets, even when things are not going so well.

We’ve found that they increase your self-confidence and belief too. With a plan of action and having some accountability this really will get you to your health goals or any type of goals you set yourself, at any time of year.

 

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

What do you make of all this?

What are your goals you want to achieve?

What was the biggest lesson you learned here ?

What is stopping you from taking action right now?

The 3 Health Benefits Of Bananas

Today you are going to learn about the 3 benefits of Bananas, and how you can eat them more regularly. As you know already Bananas are very healthy and delicious.

They contain many nutrients that are essential to us, and have other benefits such as: Digestion & Heart health.

Besides from being nutritious though, they are also very handy to carry around when traveling (Click Here)  and make a very scrumptious snack.

So without further ado here are the 3 benefits of Bananas.

 

Potassium- The benefits  include prevention from stroke, blood pressure, heart and kidney disorder, and cramps. Also makes our muscles stronger, Bone strength, metabolism and nervous system.

The primary function in our body is to regulate fluid balance and control the electrical activity of the heart and our other muscles.

 

 

Lowers Stress Levels- Having a Banana at hand is very…well, handy because you can carry it around, put it in your pocket like we all do with our mobiles and is faster to eat than going to a fast  “food” joint (Why I’ve heard no one else say this, I do not know) and having to wait for someone to prepare your poison.

You can also cut it up, put into a sandwich or Greek yoghurt etc. It’s very versatile food, so there is no “I’m too busy to eat a Banana” because really it takes no prep… it’s done for you to the point that the only thing it doesn’t do is to spoon feed you, LOL… This really does help reduce your stress levels when searching for something to eat, yet there’s more.

Potassium & magnesium are muscle relaxants, and of course Bananas are a very good source of potassium but also magnesium. They also contain the amino acid called L-tryptophan, which gets converted to 5-HTP into our brains apparently. The 5-HTP in turn is converted to serotonin (Relaxing neurotransmitter) and melatonin.

 

 

 

Vision- I know Carrot normally gets all the glory for helping our vision, Bananas do play their role too. They are packed with antioxidant compounds and carotenoids, as well as a mixture of minerals which really will boost the health of your eyes.

DID YOU KNOW?: Cataracts, Night Blindness & Glaucoma have been known to decrease with a regular intake of Bananas.

 

 

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

What do you make of all this?

Are you going to eat Bananas more regularly now?

How often are you stressed out?

What is stopping you from taking action right now?

Are you glad I’m back this year?

A Christmas Carol – If Scrooge Can Why Not You?

So what has a tale written in 1843 by a really famous author (Charles Dickens) got to do with anything?

This tale’s (if you don’t know) moral is all about giving and being kind to one another, which is what is certainly needed more of in the world today.

It also reminds me of something else… like Scrooge it’s very easy to get stuck in habits of behavior and eating patterns, especially negative ones because of past experiences, you never got the memo or simply jumping on the bandwagon because everyone around you is doing the same things daily.

The thing is when you are doing these things such as: mindless eating and sedentary activities which include: sitting on the sofa watching reality tv or news daily, for long periods in the holiday seasons especially the big one (Christmas).

Everything blows way out of proportion…things start to expand for the worse like greed & fearfulness of taking action for example, which is all negative and keeps you where you are at… not to mention bad for your health.

So really this is about breaking the cycle and burning it to ash!  Sometimes we need a wake-up call in life… gaining unwanted weight is not inevitable over Christmas or any other day for that matter.

It does not have to be the same for you again this year, when are you going to say “enough, it’s time for change?”   When will you drop your pride and ego and say I don’t know it all and I need some help here please?  It’s as easy as… (Click Here)  When will you stop saying “Bah humbug” and rolling your eyes to taking your health seriously?

I for one am not waiting for Christmas eve to let you see the messages from the four ghosts of Christmas, In fact here they are below.

 

The First Night:

The Ghost Of Smartness- During the Christmas holiday season, unhealthy nibbles such as chocolates & cookies are available for you take at your pleasure.

As you may know but might have ignored, the easier the access to the nibbles, the more you will be prone to indulge.

I must warn you as the ghost of smartness to use your smarts, if you are reading this you most likely have goals and ambitions to lose weight, right?

Yet these nibbles are countering your every move, it’s time you became the master of the food and not the other way around… GET RID

I am a smart ghost and have foreseen that your own house is one thing, but going to another’s let’s say family or friends for a Christmas party… then what?

Well you can overcome these situations by becoming more mindful of not just snacking, but what you are snacking. Just because there’s food on offer does not mean you’re that hungry or need to eat that particular thing. If you feel weak and you’re just not quite there with the whole temptation thing then you are better off avoiding it altogether.

Then saying that, why can’t you snack on real food such as fruits, nuts and vegetables?  These foods don’t contain added sugar or unhealthy fats… both of which lead to the weight gain you so desperately do not want. I’ll leave you in peace to think things through.

 

The Second Night:

The Ghost Of Christmas Past- When I was once alive I saw many people telling me what they “want to do” and now as a ghost I see even more of it.

If your actions are the same as they have been in the past what will happen?

Yes, I understand that doing something different may have not been the original plan, or something you have not had time to really process yet. Let me tell you though when you decided to not just talk about what you want, and actually do the work, that’s when your Christmases will be different and the rest of your life too.  Do not die a fool repeating the same mistakes over and over again. I see many ghosts who are haunting people who are in a zombie like state  because they are deep in regret about their own mistakes, but also they want to see you do what they never did… Succeed at this!

I must warn you not to spend too much time in the past or you may end up too comfy here, but whilst you are here though… (Click Here)

 

The Third Night:

The Ghost Of Present Activity- What are you doing right now to change your fortunes? for I am the ghost of present action, and I care little about what you did yesterday.

Why? Because as far as I’m concerned it does not exist! The most important time is right now.

Whilst you’re weighing up your options for the future and thinking about many yesterdays… the present which is you right now, is rotting.

First inside then your outer layer for all to see. I hear many screams at night saying you look worse than me. I died in 1912 my friend.

My advice to you is to put all your focus on what matters, like all the challenges of today to get things moving right now.

Inactivity contributes to weight gain, period.

Doing some type of physical activity this Christmas holiday and for the rest of your life, will prove beneficial for avoiding weight gain.

 

“I DON’T WANT TO DO IT ALONE” you scream. Then do it with your family or friends  “ DO WHAT?” you scream? Go for a simple walk

With your family, this will allow you to bond with your loved ones whilst getting your mind off the life stresses that sent me to my early grave.

 

“IT’S SO COLD THOUGH” you scream. There are no excuses if you want to stay indoors then go to You Tube, there a plenty of fitness videos for literally anything you want to do.

I must warn you, excuses will not wash with me, take action now not later, not tomorrow and not next…….. those days never come.

 

The Last Night:

The Ghost that is yet to come – Stay how you are, however you are, whoever you are… you will die, first mentally then physically. You must be willing to grow daily for any lasting changes to be made, for any blessings that is yet to come your way.

You must also stay persistent as this journey is a long one, who ever told you it would be easy lied to you… but it can become easier, if only you grow and learn what you do not yet know.

For you can be at a healthy weight, you can be eating a lot better, you can find happiness inside of yourself, you can be able to finally  look in the mirror and say “ I love myself”.  You can fulfill anything your heart most desires… providing you do the work and keep expanding in all the right ways such as gratitude and love which will get you a lot further in your goals and life… than greed and fearfulness and besides gratitude and love is good for your health.

 

So Why Not You? – As clueless and as mean as Scrooge was to everybody around him he changed, for the better. Remember when we hear about Scrooge and how he was we laugh at him and wonder why he’s so mean, why does he have no clue?? In our judgments we forget that we can be like Scrooge for other things in our lives.

Once you are aware, you too can change just like Scrooge did and hopefully like him, you will see a brand new side to yourself… and you’ll  jaw drop  to see the much improved person you have become and keep becoming the more you learn and develop as a man or woman.

 

 

That’s It!

Happy Thanksgiving! But Are You Really Though ?

So It’s that time of year again where plates will be filled and family’s will reunite. The word that will be on everyone’s lips is “Thankful”, the question is though… what are you thankful for ?

 

I know for myself I’m thankful for everything even if it does not revolve around me, and show love and appreciation daily.

 

Though I do think it’s important to show love to yourself too. How often do you guys show self love… for e.g I love myself or think positively about yourself ?

 

Also… Is this just a buzz word to you ? or are you truly thankful ??

How far does your thankfulness go just for the holidays? or are you  showing thankfulness daily ??

I’m opening this up to the Di’1s & everyone else reading this, even if you’re not celebrating… I would  still love to hear from you.
