What Healthy means to Me

When I think of what it means to have a healthy food blog I take into consideration more than just the food stuffs that I consume.  I think of Fresh… A New Chapter, way to open up my way of thinking.
I started writing this blog as my new beginning.  I had closed the chapter of my life and was starting a new one and why not start it off Fresh.  The whole concept did not quite click in until much later.  As we do in our life go through transformations, so did my thought process and my blog.


Healthy Eating

First I felt that I needed to eat healthy and that would start the process.  I would like to state this is a great place to make changes and see them.  For example do you drink pop/soda?? I did.  I had restricted my pop intake and my skin was clearer, my attitude and sleep improved.  I share the wealth of healthy bloggers recipes that I have tried and my own.


Healthy Mind and Body


That leads to the second area that we need to work on, and this is a work in progress the mind and body.  I reached out to Rita a few months ago and that was the best and hardest thing I ever did.  I needed a total stranger to know my story.  I did not think that I would ever hear back, but to my surprise my biggest supporter lives a few thousand kilometers away!  Thank you Rita!


Healthy Spirit


Lastly my spirit and this is the area I will be sharing more with is in the weeks to come.  I feel spirituality comes from with in you as does your strength and your inner-ness.  My inner me was my worst friend for a long time.  Now that I have begun to share my adventure with the world my inner nay-sayer has gotten smaller.

I hope that you follow me on my journey to overall happiness and throughout the new chapter of my life.  I look forward to hearing about your healthy journey!! Feel free to send me a email or leave a tweet!!

    I love the title of your blog. It’s so important to get a fresh perspective every now and then and yours is enlightening. What better way to achieve your goals than out in the open in the blogosphere? You should feel proud of the strides you’ve made so far. I look forward to reading your current chapter and those that follow.

    I heard about what you were doing from fitblogger, and thought I’d see what you’re all about. It looks like we started our fitness journeys at almost the exact same time! My hat’s off to you for having the courage to commit to fitness. I know it’s not always easy and coworkers may often view you as a health freak, but the health and fitness community at Twitter and your followers will be terrifically valuable providers of support and inspiration.

    Mind, body, and spirit work together in one of the most fabulous of symbiotic relationships. They are truly a trifecta, and you can use any one of them to revitalize the others when they need that little boost. In the beginning of a fitness journey the body is the weakest, but its weakness can be defeated through the strength and perseverance of the mind and spirit. As the little fitness victories start accumulating, the body quickly begins to evolve its own strength. Soon it becomes strong enough to overcome the minds thoughts of despair, and the days of sullen spirit (like the cloudy, cold days when you don’t feel like working out). The strengthening of one strengthens them all.

    I look forward to watching you shine.
