Recently I told you about some ways you may not have heard about to control your appetite. Well, I have been using the one, Meta Appetite Control, since then and I can tell you that it really works! As someone who works from home, it is really tough for me not to snack all day long […]
Cravings and hunger pains are the top 2 things that keep me from staying on track with a healthy lifestyle. It is almost impossible for me to ignore that chocolate cupcake piled high with icing when my stomach is grumbling. And it is very hard to focus on work when all I can think about […]
The other day I came upon this interesting graphic from Think About Your Eyes, a national campaign promoting the benefits and importance of eye health. They surveyed members of a national fitness center and found that even though they realized the importance of their body health and fitness, they tend to neglect their eye health.
Earlier this year I told you how my chronic migraines affect my life. As a migraineur (a migraine sufferer) it is really easy for me to get caught up in how my migraines affect me and forget how it may affect my loved ones—especially my husband. Chronic illness can be tough on a marriage. Here are some ways that we have been able to keep our relationship strong despite my chronic migraines.
I’ve said in the past that I am not big on making New Year’s resolutions (except maybe for fun ones like these). That doesn’t mean that I don’t reflect on the previous year and how I might want to improve in the new one. This year I decided that we needed to save more money, and I needed to get healthier. Pretty broad statements, huh? Then I got routine blood work and my doctor told me that my Vitamin D level was low. He said that I needed to improve this for bone health.
Have you ever met the perfect health conscious couple? These couples seem to be on the same page when it comes to eating right, drinking all the right fluids, and go to the gym together 4 days a week. They run a 5K several times a year to support all the right causes and wouldn’t dream of smoking, over indulging in alcohol or becoming a couch potato on the weekend. Don’t you just hate them? In reality, it seems that most couples (like my husband and I) are not on the same page when it comes to health and fitness. There may be one spouse who is health conscious (my hubby) but the other is content to sit around, watch TV and eat bon bons (me).
I’ve mentioned my migraines in the past, but I’ve never really talked about my life with migraines. Why? Probably because I don’t like to dwell on them. Migraines take enough of my time offline, I haven’t really wanted them to take my online time as well. However, I have decided to share some of my life with migraines to hopefully help others understand what can be involved so that you may empathize with any migraine sufferers in your life.
With marriage comes a long list of changes that may need to be made: your name, your address, your bank accounts, your tax filing status, your insurance… the list goes on and on. Although you may not need to make all of these changes, you do need to think about them and make decisions as […]
Every day, we encounter stressful situations and things that exhaust us physically. The holidays are no exception. In fact, they can be even more stressful, especially for newlyweds. You have so many things to deal with: Where will you spend the holidays? Should you host a party for friends and family? Is your new house big enough to hold a party? What presents should you get your in-laws? How much should you spend? How will you deal with family expectations? And the list goes on!
When I look at my Instagram feed, it seems that more and more people are moving away from processed foods and trying to eat a clean diet—Oh, and more people are trying those wraps and essential oils, but I digress— Getting a cleaner diet can seem like a daunting task; especially if you have been a junk food addict most of your life like me. I am finding that by making one small change at a time, I am able to stick with it. Here are 5 simple ways I have found to clean up my diet. Maybe they can work for you too!
