Summer

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Summer is here are you ready.....

We have been very busy as most know who read my blogs...

Last night we took time out of busy days to visit with my sister and my favorite brother in law....(he is my only brother in law) I was so surprised to hear the topic of conversation was quinoa ..not sure I spelled that right....they were talking about eating healthy, getting more protein and eating less red meat and meat in general....I was thinking ..."am I in the right place....who took my sister and BIL" when I started spark people my family were very supportive an happy for my success but one day when I was talking about a different way to eat, eating more fresh foods, clean foods my sister jumped on me and said enough already, we are sick of hearing about this healthy crap, good for you ....you lost the weight now move on.....I puffed up my self....(I am 6 year younger and they still think of me as a child) told them in a not so quiet voice, THAT I CAN'T GET OVER IT...THIS IS A LIFE LONG STRUGGLE AND IF I EVER WENT BACK TO MY OLD HABITS THAT I WOULD GAIN WEIGHT BUT THE WORSE PART WOULD BE I WOULD NOT FEEL WONDERFUL AND BE HEALTHY'
it hurt my feelings back then but I did decide to not being healthy things up unless asked....my neice on the other hand would call me to ask a few questions about healthier foods and she and her husband started a healthy life style for there family.....
So last night things were brought to light that maybe I was on to something with my eating clean and healthy, just because you feel better and for health reason......as I listened I was happy and suprised, hey I thought they finally got it.....
so never give up, it takes times for some people to get on board.....I gave them some good information where to find healthy food ideas....mostly I stressed do what is right for you....don't fall in to any traps and think things have to be one way....do what works for you....find the food the exercise that makes you want to stick with it....find that happy place where food is not the high light but where your healthy is the most important element.....
live can be wonderful when your healthy and happy

Have a healthy week...........
