Healthier and Happier – Working to be Fit Everyday!

My cheat sheet:) I love it.

My one page note!  My little helper:)

Small consistent changes to eating healthier and living an active lifestyle is what I did to get the results that I wanted.  And, I am still doing it.  I’ve been doing this for almost 15 years now.  I still motivate myself and do lots of self talk.  It has led me to live a healthier and happier life for me, my family and my friends.

Walking in nature is a great exercise. Here my husband is walking our dog Dixie. I walk with our other dog, Sir Thomas, as you may know him.

People ask me if I can help them.  But I don’t have any certification.  I do, however, know how I did it!  My little note certainly helped.  I would love to help others, I’m thinking of getting certification in Personal Training so that I can help others.  In the meantime, I still wanted to share  my little photo-note in this post:)

I made this yummy meal! It was filling and healthy, too.

I am regularly reading and learning from different websites.  I educate myself and filter information to fit my body and my given genes.  I fight and beat a few bad genes on a daily basis; but the rest I accept, and continue to move forward.  I, recently, read a good article on fighting bad genes titled, “6 Ways to Beat Your Bad Genes.”  You can read it on, http://www.prevention.com/fitness/fitness-tips/how-your-genes-impact-your-physical-fitness

Can’t emphasize enough – Being consistent and patient is what worked for me!  Small consistent changes to eating healthier and living an active lifestyle is what I did to get the results that I wanted.  And, I will continue doing it!

…thank you for visiting my blog…until next time:)

    I love the little drawn diagram up the top! As a metabolic scientist specializing in obesity and type 2 diabetes, I can say your plan is pretty good 🙂
    Depending on your genes, exercise may make more of a difference than just 10% but it’s always dependent on the individual.
    Mostly I love ‘Be consistent and be patient with yourself’ 🙂 Very wise words!!

      Thanks Doc Emily! Of course, this diagram is customized for me:) You are absolutely right…it’s going to be different for each. But no matter what that consistency and patience are the keys. Thanks Doc:) Love your site. Good luck in Africa.

      I have decided to get my Personal Training Certificate. It’ll take me about three months. Walking is a good exercise. You do have to consult your doctor to see what exercises you can do safely. I have gone through things that has stopped my workouts but I followed docs orders and have gotten back on track. I’ll definitely motivate you. Walking in any capacity is a good thing…I bet your doctor will agree. Yaz.

        My main doctor says I know my body better than they do. He is right.
        Right now any exercise is almost impossible. I can touch my toes but I get dizzy.
        I just try and do as much around here as I can.
        I need motivation there. I HATE HOUSEWORK,
        I am enjoying my short walks outside. For someone who walked miles a day in the cooler months I am anxious to really walk again.

        Do what you can, and really take the time to enjoy your walk, even if it is short. Enjoying your walks will enable your brain to motivate itself for more short walks for you to enjoy. And, slowly but surely, the positive take on these short walks will make your body heal. I can assure you of this.
