Start Living Healthy: Some Questions to Consider as Make Your Plan

Awhile back Ethan & I saw the movie “Mr. Holmes” (as in Sherlock!).  It got me thinking about how we have to do some good detective work when we want to start living healthy.   We have to ask some questions.

A good detective knows that gathering evidence and finding answers takes time.

My Journey to Ditching the Scale – Faith and Fitness

Over a week ago, I had the opportunity to be a guest on my friend Glenneth’s blog.  I have been following Glenneth for quite some time.   I love her approach to health and fitness that includes NO SCALE!  In fact in one post, she wrote how she even refused to weigh in at the doctor’s office.  Really?!?!  Can you actually do that????  Yes you can.  I know it not only because Glenneth shared how she did it, but because I followed her lead and began refusing the doctor’s scale as well!

In this “hurry up” society when everything is at our fingertips, and Starbucks will now have our coffee ready when we arrive, we don’t know how to relax.  Stress relieving activities.  What are those?  And if we knew them, why would we do them?  We don’t have time!!  

Recently I let myself get overwhelmed by all the things, and I’m assuming you have done that too.  No matter what time of year it is, there is always a break on the horizon.  Summer break.  Spring Break.  Winter break.   You may not have a beach vacation planned, but that doesn’t mean you and I can’t find time in our day to relax, decompress, or take a time out.
