Stop Taking Yourself Out of Life

~~STOP taking yourself out of the LIFE you want most~~

Most of us take our own health for granted, focusing instead on the well being of our families. Then before we know it, bam, some bad health hits us and then we think!!!!!
The key sentence to this paragraph is
"Accept that caring for yourself is NOT a selfish's a have-to-do-thing!"
Americana's health-one in three adults is obese, one in four get NO exercise, three in four eat fewer than 5 fruits and veggies a day-the rapid rise of caring for yourself is a MUST thing to do!
Even when we want to change our lifestyle, the goals can be very DIFFICULT to achieve. When someone knows and cares about your plans, you're more likely to follow through.
Having others along the way to help you, keeps you honest and accountable with yourself! We develop these unrealistic goals that seem so unreachable, we put so much on ourselves that we are spread so thin, there is no time left to reach those goals. We must find a reasonable starting point for our Better life, "instead of losing 40 pounds, exercise an hour each day, and giving up sugar totally, we need to break it down into reachable goals " start with a small time for "ME" mediation and prayer in the morning, slowing cutting a bit of sugar at a time and then a walk in the evening to help your health and clear your mind.
YOU can make a difference! Your changes can make a ripple effect when they see you changing for the better. When people make changes connected to what they care about, their values and personal vision-those Changes are more likely to last!!
So Today!! Put yourself back in your LIFE, Say to yourself "I feel like everything in my life will change because i want a better life for ME."
That is why I am writing this blog each day, to help me!! I want all that I can to change my life, my health and make me happy!
It is our attitude that makes us feel so Happy and Unhappy! Spend a few minutes each day thinking about the things that can make you happy!! These few moments will give you the opportunity to focus on the positive things in your life and will lead to a more wanted life for you!
**Don't FORGET-YOU Deserve Happiness**

Power Food For The Day

Olive Oil

Why it's healthy
Full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (10 g per tablespoon), which lower "bad" LDL cholesterol and raise "good" HDL cholesterol, and polyphenol antioxidants, which fight cancer and heart disease.
How to buy
Choose a size you'll use within 2 months As the container empties, it fills with oxygen; the olive oil starts to oxidize, or deteriorate, and eventually tastes stale, like wet cardboard.

Opt for dark glass It protects the olive oil from light, another source of flavor-sapping oxidation.

Splurge for taste Buy extra virgin if you want to emphasize the oil's flavor, as in dressings or marinades; use pure for sauteing or stir-frying.

Insider advice
Store opened bottles in a dark, cool place, such as the back of a pantry or your fridge--though oil stored there may cloud, it will clear at room temperature.
Prevention's picks for taste:
Extra virgin: Trader Joe's Australian ($7 for 17 oz)
Pure: Bertolli Classico ($9 for 17 oz)
Light: Pompeian Extra Light ($6 for 16 oz

Bible Verse-
"Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; for the Lord has heard the voice of weeping. The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer." Psalm 6:8-9
