Realistic Holiday Health

StrawberriesVeggies

 

We just passed Halloween and now have bags of candy tempting us by saying it’s okay to eat 1 or 10 pieces for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.  Without missing a beat, I’ve seen close to 20 (so far) images with workout guides and the horrors of gaining weight over the last two months of the year.  The incentive is to lose your holiday weight now and not wait (weight lol) until the New Year to declare your new super awesome fitness goals.  I think it’s a bit presumptuous of anyone to start shoving protein shakes or whatever weight loss thing down anyone’s throat or assume we are all planning to go into a food coma by sitting at the dining table shoveling mashed potatoes in our mouths in a last ditch effort to have one more bite in the name of Thanksgiving or other holiday meals.

Come One and All

 

My hair, makeup, and lei for the day.
 
One of the things I enjoy doing is having a booth at trade shows or fairs.  I like getting out there and talking with others because you never know who you will end up meeting.  Yesterday I had another one.  

This fair’s focus was on health, and my booth contained a lot of great info pertaining to kids and families. All the important topics such as bullying, smoking,  addiction, suicide, and many more.  There were a lot of great other vendors too with various important subjects.  Minus my sunburn, I had fun. 

A better shot of my whole outfit.

 

My lovely table stuffed with goodies!
 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  😄 

Wellness Wednesday – PCOS

Each year more and more women are being diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), and some never know about it until they finally meet with a doctor that knows to talk about it or asks you the right questions.  It is important to get to know your body, track your menstrual cycles and keep your doctor informed of any changes or any issues or things you feel are important.  It could save your life!  I pulled this article from WebMd that goes into great detail on signs, symptoms, and questions you can bring to your doctor.  Please share this with friends and loved ones!

Wednesday Wellness – Diabetes

I found this handy picture that is more of a chart on Pinterest and wanted to share it with you all ( I didn’t make it and was unable to find its owner).  Recently, I have heard of too many loved ones being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.  If you suspect you have this, talk with your healthcare professional to get tested properly and work to eat healthy.

You are important and so is your health.

Let’s Get Moving!

We always hear about how Suzie Sunshine found an extra 1000 hours in her day to run 50 miles a week and has it all tracked in her app – but what about the rest of us?  How exactly are we supposed to find time to fit in a productive workout in our already busy lives?  Yes, it is possible to wake up early and hit the gym or morning run before work, but most of us want that hour of sleep or we are using that hour to get our family ready for their day.  What are some realistic ways to fit in proper fitness through our days?

Wellness Wednesday – Heat Exhaustion

I shared this article from WebMd about Heat Exhaustion as a reminder to do our best to stay cool and enjoy the summer safely.  This is a great read to save and share with friends and loved ones.
