making better choices

Life is about choices.

If you make good choices, rewards (usually)
If you make poor choices, consequences (but grace!)

I am not fat because I sit around, I am fat because I make poor food choices. I eat too much fat, too many calories.

If you eat lots of fruits and veggies, you feel better, you poop better, it's all good.

If you eat lots of sugar, too many carbs... you might feel good for a minute, but it hits your butt and stays there... and you don't poop good. Did you know that you should poop everytime after you eat? Most people are lucky to go once a day. Take a little magnesium if you need help in that department. Works like a charm. It's also good for your muscles, heart, and can keep you from burning in the sunshine. (HINT HINT if you crave chocolate, you need more magnesium). True story.

Making good food choices is not always easy. if you forget to grab an apple or come kind of fruits and veggies on your way out the door, I don't know about you but I become destined for a bag of chips or candy mid-afternoon. I brought two apples and a peach today. Just in case.

I am going to have Chinese today. I love chinese. YUM!! Chicken and Broccoli, I know it's kind of high in fat but I'll make sure I get white rice, not fried, and no egg roll.

We leave for Austria in 31 days... YEAH!

Now please explain to me why all "good" food doesn't taste like chocolate! Then we would all eat healthy food!

I have decide it would be good to be a snake. Only for the fact that they eat one meal and it lasts for like, forever! You never see a snake mindlessly munching out of boredom. No Maam, they eat with a purpose. Yes, a snake it is, except for WHAT they eat. Oh never mind!
