Having type 2 diabetes I know the importance of limiting sugar. I just wish I was better to my body before diagnosis. Now I am a advocate trying to help others gain better health before a diagnosis comes. If we can do anything to help not get a health condition and on this list there are many it would be so much better to start being better to ourselves so we don’t have to get any diagnosis.
 
No type 2 diabetes is not always caused by lifestyle in fact many have it passed down from generation to generation. I know for fact have mine was caused by lifestyle. Still to this day I have to watch every little thing . When I eat bad it affects my #Diabetes.
 
Many are addicted to sugar and once they give it up like I did they feel great. I love how I feel not having it in my life. I just feel better. It does aid in causing depression and I know that the times I have had loss in my life and turned to the sugar it just made me more sad and upset so I try my best when loss comes to do the opposite. Exercise and not eat sugar!! That is a natural antidepressant. Now I occ eat sugar but I just don’t eat it often. We all know our own bodies best and our own limits and so you know what you need to do it’s just a matter of doing it and putting hard work and effort into living a healthier life. I love this inforgraphic and will have to share it!! #diabetes #livingwithdiabetes #sugardetox

3 tips to “GET UP and Get Moving”

get moving

3 Tips to get you moving and making exercise a part of YOUR LIFE!!!!!

1. Don’t Think!!  JUST DO!!

Don’t just sit around thinking about exercising.  Get Up and Get Moving!!  Do it!!  Words are Words!!  Put action to those words and get moving!

2. Do It For YOURSELF!!!!

Don’t do it for Grandma, Dad, Hubby, Do it for yourself!!  You will most likely make this goal of getting exercise apart of your life if you do it for yourself.  Sure you can make doing it for your family because you want to live along life with them apart of the reason you want to get in shape.  BUT do this for YOU!!   YOU deserve it and if you can take the time make a vision board to inspire you so on the days you don’t want to get out of bed you can look at it and remember this is for you!!  To better YOU, your life, your health!!

3. Mix It UP!!!

Do all kinds of exercise.  Don’t get yourself board by doing the same thing everyday.  Walk, Take group fitness classes,  Run on the beach,  Do some weight lifting at the gym,  Do a fun out door boot camp class.  MIX it up and keep it fresh.  Locally we have Nampa Fit Studio!!  

They have all kinds of great classes from BodyPump with weights to Zumba!!   So get in and come have some fun!!

New Year~ New You!

New year New You 2016

I took some time off!!  It’s been wonderful spending time with my family!!  I am back feeling refreshed and renewed!!

New years are great!! New Slate!!  I love the start of the new year and all it offers…

So what do you want your 2016 to look like??  We can do anything we put our minds too.  So start by writing down some goals.

Write it down!! Write it down!!  I can’t stress this enough!!

Map out how you are going to reach your goal. Set goals you can reach. I really do believe if your goals are not written down they are just dreams. When you write them down and put them somewhere you can see them it will set off events that will change your life.

Maybe your goal is to get moving!!  Well do it!  Don’t let anything this year stop you!  Join some fitness classes.  Group fitness with Zumba, Bodypump, Kickboxing are all great classes and the fun part is your doing a class with other people!!  Local Nampa fit studio has with code 1FREE4ME gets you a free class so you can come in and try a class!!  Click here to go to their site.

Maybe you want to start eating healthier food.  I think the one bit of advice I can offer on this subject is give up sugar.  You can have a treat now and then but getting sugar out of your life comes with a overall great feeling.  I can’t describe it but once it’s truly out of your system you truly feel better overall.  I have a few pinterest board called Sugar Detox.  It has so many great pins that will help you understand why Sugar just is so unhealthy you may just want to jump on in and give the toxic drug up!! 🙂

What ever your goal maybe making a vision board is a awesome tool!

You need to have a clear vision of your goals!  You can feel free to let your imagination wonder as you create your future on this board.  This will help you create what you want from the inside and you can see it daily.

You will need a poster board. You can add sayings and pictures cut out from magazines. Healthy foods, Pictures of people near your ideal weight or even a picture of yourself at your ideal weight. Don’t hold back. You can put pictures that represent you and your dreams. Envision yourself and your new life and make this vision board all about your future.
Now place your board you will see it every day. If you look at it daily it will leave a imprint in your subconscious mind and you will make your board into reality.

Happy New Year!!
