10 Steps To a Healthy Life

Find the time today to take action and heal your body and mind with a healthier life! These are steps that I've taken over the years to get where I am. Sometimes it wasn't easy, but I have way more energy now.

Twelve years ago I was sitting in Starbucks sipping a frozen coffee drink with whipped cream on top and taking a bite out of a very large muffin. I was 15 pounds overweight, not loving my job or my future, and feeling my vitality slip away. Besides the fact that I didn't feel I had any direction in my life, I was also eating poorly and typically getting fast food or quick snacks loaded with sugar in my busy life.

I was busy constantly. I had to keep it that way to avoid thinking about what I was doing, or where I was going in life.

I was lonely. I hadn't met my forever man at that point and didn't even feel like it was worth it to treat myself right. No one loved me anyway, right? Wrong. Lots of people loved me, but I had no feeling of worth at the time. It was definitely a combination of having no direction in life and beating up my body with junk food just because it felt good. I did the occasional strong workout, then got made at myself for not going regularly. Hence I didn't lose any weight.

Fast forward two years.

My forever-man, my soulmate was newly in my life. He totally loved me for me. He was healthy, worked out, and studied nutrition on the side, but only for fun. He said to me one day: "You know, you're really tired from your bike ride because all you had was cereal for breakfast!"

I said, "What's wrong with cereal?"

He said "It has no protein in it, so your energy is quickly depleted from it."

From there, I started reading the books he was reading and discovered that my junk-food filled diet was lacking in protein and complex carbohydrates. That was causing me to have chronic headaches, less energy, and more weight.

It opened a whole new world for me! Suddenly I was cooking at home, making full meals with delicious salads, stews, and even dabbling in coming up with my own recipes. I was down to my healthiest, lowest weight ever (even lower than high school!). I worked out almost every day at home, with no personal trainer pushing me. Find out my 10 Steps on!
