“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
The New Year has come and gone, and many of us has recently celebrated a holiday known for sweet treats and big dinners. It’s safe to say, that some of us are no longer providing our bodies, with the healthy eating adjustments that we promised ourselves on January 1st. The days have become fuller, and it has gotten easier for us to fall off our healthy practices. No longer making the effort to eat healthy, will hurt us sooner or later. To be the vivacious, fierce, multitasking, and charming women that we each work towards excelling at being, we have to feed our bodies the energy it needs. It’s understandable however, that, that’s easier said then done. When you’re working 8 plus hours a day, you tend to eat what’s assessable. When we have a family to assist at providing for, we tend to feed ourselves cheaply. We have to figure out a way to each break the vicious cycle of negative eating!
This week, start writing a list of healthy snacks that you can purchase at a decent price. Once you complete that list, start purchasing those snacks. Gradually, start changing your daily meals one at a time. There is no need to rush into big changes, or strict diets. Just commit to making small changes over time.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~Hippocrates
