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.
It’s the same with me and you. If you’re ready to start living healthy, grab a journal and start taking some notes.

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!
So when Glenneth gave me the opportunity to write a post, I was thrilled to be on her blog and share my journey of ditching the scale.
I had a love/hate relationship with the scale my entire life. I started stepping on the scale at an early age. Before ditching the scale, Friday was weigh in day for me. I began getting anxious about it Thursday night…..if not before!

“What do you do to relax?”
I once asked this to a group of women and got the reply, “Relax. What’s that?”
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.
