~Why Health is Really Just One Decision At a Time & a FUN FOOD Post Round Up~



Nutrition is my hobby. It is the subject that I easily stay up at night reading. It has become my 'side job' as a self-employed Holistic Nutritionist. It is one of my passions.

I recently started a monthly women's health support group.
 It is made up of such a fun group of women, who like myself, enjoy chatting with one another in the area of health. Women, who are being real, and vulnerable, and ready to put away the excuses & move forward together as a team! 

Bonus: it has become a new motivator for ME to continue to press forward in this area :)

Yet, like many others, it is still an area that I am overcoming. One small baby step at a time.

I recently gave birth to baby #5. She is a beautiful blessing... but, boy oh boy, did I gain weight during the pregnancy! I stopped counting once I gained about 50 lbs!!! 

So now, it's back to square one, & I'm facing my #1 enemy in the mirror: my own self-doubt...

It seems TOO overwhelming, too big of a goal, too much to change, too hard, etc. etc.

I have to shut up all these self-doubts, DAILY, and then continue each day to make a choice for health.


Exercise. Eat Healthier. Repeat.

That is the only way to get anywhere in your health journey ...
one small step at a time. Don't quit!

  5. Starting a monthly women's health support group is an amazing endeavor. Good for you for getting it going. Support groups of like-minded motivated women can really super charge the productivity and follow-through of other women in the group. Just knowing someone out there is on your side is often enough to keep going and reach your goals.

  15. I'm SO picky ... I've never had a smoothie, just the thought of grinding up the fruit makes it unappealing. It is very hard to eat healthy when I am so picky, although I don't like a lot of things people struggle with too - so it goes both ways. I've got the fitness portion down (the quantity anyway, I could improve the quality) but the food is a constant struggle! Thanks for linking up with Motivation Monday.

  16. If you're breastfeeding that will help melt away the baby weight. :) Congrats on #5! I eat healthy to avoid artificial ingredients, but it has really helped clear up my skin as an added benefit!

  17. Thanks for linking up with Small Victories Sunday Linky. I agree it's all about making one healthy decision at a time, it helps from getting overwhelmed. I have been gaining weight since Easter and a medicine I take. Every extra pound hurts my joints and I've got to get it off! Pinning to our linky board.
