Weekly Challenge: Practice mindful eating: Slow down, chew your food, and pay attention to your body’s signals of hunger, satiety, and fullness with every meal that you eat this week.

It is really not necessary to eat until we are completely stuffed or very full at every meal.  In fact that should be the exception to the rule.  For many reasons, but also because our stomach is going to be able to digest the food better if it has some room in there to churn the food all around.  Of course overeating  happens.  When something tastes exceptionally great, or we haven’t had a favorite food in a while, or we… Read more »

Some people do this really really well, but I am not one of them.  Planning the evening meals for my family might just be the bane of my existence at this point in my life.  It is torture and I hate it!  I can never make everyone happy, and listening to complaining after… Read more »


Weekly Challenge: Schedule that healthcare appointment that keeps slipping through the cracks.

It is so easy to let our busy lives get in the way of taking proper care of ourselves.  Especially when it involves going to the doctor, or being poked or prodded!  Sometimes when we feel good, nothing hurts, and we know we take good care of ourselves, then we really put off important check ups.  Take a minute to review the list below, and if needed go ahead and take the steps needed to get at least one of… Read more »
