Focusing on Health

BrownQuote2

Now is the time to Focus On Your Health!  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here on my blog, but it’s not because I’d decided to abandon it, just the opposite. Sometimes we need to step away from something to really get a true understanding of it and that is what I needed to do with GoodFoodMama.

I wanted to make sure I was taking it in the direction it needed to go at this time in my life. I wanted to make sure it was serving a purpose to my clients, to you and to myself.

While the message stays the same, “Motivating and inspiring you to reach your best health potential!” my approach will be one that offers more interaction with you! There will be more tips, quotes and daily actions you can do, right now, to help you care for yourself and to reach your best health potential.

One way for you all to get more daily messages from me is to follow me on Twitter or Facebook

In addition, starting November 1st clients will be receiving “Good News + Good Vibes = Healthy Life!” a monthly newsletter packed with healthy, motivating and inspiring information to help you live a healthier life! If you have already signed up to get emails you will also be receiving the newsletter. If you have not signed up, do so now!

Be Healthy!

Fitness – Focus On Health and Not Just For Aesthetic Reasons

Fitness – making well informed food choices and exercising – should be less about vanity and more about your health.  Everybody has their reasons for participating in fitness programs and that’s fine.  All I am saying is try to look at the big picture.

When the focus of fitness is strictly to reach some unrealistic goal and you don’t reach that goal everything stops because you become depressed about not reaching that goal.

Instead try to embrace fitness as a lifestyle, as a way of life.  It’s something that will not stop once you have lowered your HDL cholesterol levels or your sleeping better or you have more energy to run around with your kids!  When you notice these kinds of things happening you will only want to continue because now your quality of life has improved.

I was totally inspired to write this post from my friend’s incredible collection of memes challenging folks to re-think their motivation for exercising. Check her out on FB Go Kaleo – Amber Rogers!

Here is a really good infographic that outlines the physical, mental, social and emotional benefits associated with fitness and being in good health.
