Sprouted Grain Bread May Prevent Stomach Issues

When I switched from white bread to whole grain bread I started experiencing upset stomachs. But when I tried sprouted whole grain bread instead, my stomach did not object. And another benefit is a great nutty flavor and hearty texture. I don't eat any other kind of bread now.

Pre-plan your lunches for work

I always pack my lunch and snacks for work the night before. That way I don't have to think about it when I am rushing around in the morning. It allows me to stay within my nutrition goals, and then I have plenty of healthy choices while I am work which helps me stay away from the vending machine!

Mental Health!

I always try to remember that i am the person God made me to be. I am the person He wants me to be and that no person on earth can make me in to anything less than that. To me that is Self-Esteem, which comes from the inside, so don't let people get under your skin and take that away!

Do What You Enjoy

So often people think of exercise as a chore. I know I used to. January of 2009 I changed that mentality and joined a women's only dance studio. I danced my weight off. Later I incorporated riding my bike and roller blading. The main thing is if I don't love it I won't do it so find things you love.

Walking in spite of pain

I make an endeavor to walk 2 miles every day that I am not going to the gym. Sometimes due to major feet and knee problems I may only get to do 1 mile. My walk involves steep uphill roads as I live in the mountain area of BC.
