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 w

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me
