Mind Body Spirit

I joined this network last week in order to keep me motivated in my endless endeavor to loose weight. As you all know I do enjoy food a little to much. I'm only making this post as a way of keeping me true to my ultimate goal of shedding the pounds. Through my years of trying and failing in this area, I have learned one thing about me and that is....I have to loose weight through portion control and conscious eating, I tend to eat when I am happy -it's my way of celebrating, and unfortunately I eat when I'm upset. So knowing these things about myself I'm committed to exchanging those habits for new one like getting on my treadmill instead. Don't worry I'm well aware of the fact that this is not going to be easy, but I believe that by posting it for the world to see, that you wonderful people will help keep me on point toward my goal.

And I found an interesting article you should take a look at, it had stated that, " The founding father of medicine, the Greek philosopher Hippocrates recommended exercise as treatment for mental illness more than 400 years BC. He described walking as “man’s best medicine”. Walking, cycling, jogging, swimming, dancing, bowling, in fact whatever exercise you enjoy increases the bodies hormones endomorphines which increase our feeling of well being. Great for the mind and the body – a double whammy!" Read More Here.

So people I'm at it again. And after I get a handle on portion control my husband and myself will continue to provide you with "Resturant Reviews," I will be eating more of their wonderful salads (got to still watch the ingredience they put in the dressings)

What are some of the things you are doing to stay fit or GET FIT?

Interesting network! You can do it T! It is all about balance. What the great philosopher said is true. I have always been about fitness, at first for looks, but as I matured I realized it was helping my mind, body, and spirit. We are a fitness family, but we love to eat too! Believe it or not my favorite food is a nice scrumptious, gourmet salad.

Here's to your health,
