Notice how you feel

Today has been good. I slept well, got up early, and trained. I worked on my back and shoulders. I also incorporated a new balance exercise. While I was getting my personal training certification, I learned that with every workout you should do one exercise for balance. I have a lot of energy, which is more than I can say for yesterday.

On Tuesday night I met a few friends for dinner and had 2 glasses of red wine. For those of you whom have been reading, I'm not a big drinker, I limit myself to a few glasses of wine a week. When I woke up yesterday I had a headache and was much slower......all from two glasses of wine.

I am a health nut, most of my meals are very clean, organic, and healthy. What I realized Weds. is how the red wine made me feel the next day. When you are eating and or drinking try and notice how you feel afterwards. If you eat a big pasta dinner, later are you lethargic, tired, etc. If you eat a salad that has lean protein and some healthy fats like avocado and nuts......... how do you feel?

My point to all of this is to really try and notice how your food consumption makes you physically feel. I am positive you will start to notice that when you eat a healthy, balanced, diet you will feel good.

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape and size you are, always love yourself!!!


While you are at those fun holiday party's stay away from the food table. A recen study found that the people who were furthest away from the food and goodies ate less. Have your conversation and fun on the other side of the room!
