Fit Friday 

​Fit Friday words of wisdom… if you think, “Hey I should get up and workout.” …just do it! Spare yourself the drama and get on with it. Did I want to get up this morning and do it no, but I did. Stop making excuses and do better!…. that is all! Lol!

Have a great Friday y’all!!! 🌿💖💪🏽
Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Thoughtful Thursday: Greasy Food

befunky-design23

Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday to you all! I have a confession to make… I have been eating terribly since Saturday. I don’t know what is going on! I just want comfort food! It is no coincidence that yesterday just so happen to be National Greasy Food Day. Although I have been indulging in bad foods this week, I am still reminded of what these foods will do to me in the long run.

Consider how you feel after you eat greasy food. You feel heavy, tired, and sluggish. It is more than likely you will be good and ready for a nap after. The fact is greasy food is just fat. Too much saturated, trans fat, and bad cholesterol will eventually clog your arteries and lead to all kinds of health problems.

Immediate affects may include weight gain, bloating, and acne. Long term affects include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease or stroke. I am sure most of you already know this information. My intentions are not to harp on you, but to give you a sense of awareness. Although I love the warm feeling of comfort food, I know I have to make smart decisions for my long term health. That is not to say I won’t have bad food every once in a while, but everyday is too much. We should eat with the purpose of nourishing our bodies; not destroying it. I will definitely try to do better for the remainder of the week. I hope you do too. Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

P.S. Lunch from today 🙂

Motivational Monday: #relationshipgoals

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday to you all. Long time no write. Life has been great! I can’t complain. I have been busy with a lot of personal projects, and of course family life.

Tonight I would like to talk to you about your relationship goals and how they affect you health wise. I recently spoke with an associate of mine about relationships, and how they can take a toll on your health. Now if you are in a strong and flourishing relationship then most likely it will help you thrive as a human being, but what if you are in just the opposite?

Negative relationships can almost deteriorate a person. I have seen so many women day in and day out stay in relationships only to end up with nothing in the end. Sure they look well put together on the outside, but they are dying on the inside. Trust me I have been there, but I am here to tell you that there is hope at the end of the tunnel. Whether you decide to stay or to go, it is up to you to cultivate any relationship that you are in. Granted there is another person involved, but you can help steer it back into the right direction. Then if you have tried all you can, it might be time to just let it go.

Negative relationships take a toll on your physical health as well as your mental health. These relationships fester anger, stress, anxiety, and depression. All these symptoms make you more susceptible to infection and chronic illness. I do not mean to sound like “Debbie Downer”, but it is time for all of us to take care of our own well being first. Only by doing that can you be prepared to be your best self for others. Take time to think about it tonight. What are your real relationship goals (Whether it is a intimate partner, friend, or family member)? Who do you  need to exclude from your well being?

Live. Love. Well & Fit.
