Healthy is as healthy does

Ever live a go go go lifestyle and then crash crash crash?  I seem to do that a lot lately.  And I feel the effects terribly when I don't listen up to my own self.  While I do maintain consistent exercise, well balanced meals, and am doing better at getting good sleep, I find myself needing some improvement.  That's not to be negative, I just could stand to evaluate what is working and what is not.

For example, I read recently in a magazine Snooki (yes Snooki from Jersey Shore, don't judge, I love her!), stated about when she was binge eating pizza and drinking booze all day er-ry day at the shore, her mind was just dumb.  Foggy.  Groggy.  Icky.  Now that she embraces a clean diet and exercises often, she feels much more able to think straight.  It got me thinking about similar articles and info I've read up about the same kind of logic.   I believe it's safe to surmise that if we are what we eat, then best to not be fast, cheap, or greasy.

I have slipped more recently and had some not so good for you foods that I had gotten away from for a bit.  It's usually blah, makes me feel instantly gross, and then there is the wonder of the lasting effects of what it does to my insides.  Ick.  At least I'm determined to maintain clean and happy living more than ever.

Random Monday thoughts? Maybe.  Good food for thought and body?  Absolutely.

Have you checked in with your good intentions of the healthy lifestyle type lately?  What tips can you share?

Until we meet again,

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…
