What are your thoughts about “We are what we eat” idea? What about Healthy Mindset Healthy Body – do you think that works? I sure think so…and I even think about Healthy People around you, healthy lifestyle. I was in Melbourne recently for a Pro-blogger event. It sure was a lot of fun, actually it was a fantastic weekend…but I got to thinking….
Healthy Mindset Healthy Body
Vegetarian and Salad
Lately I haven’t had much time to do anything for my healthy body. Do you get into the same problems….not enough time, to much to do, and no time set aside for you and your Body? As a Mum to five boys (even though one of them is in the Navy) I find its a HUGE juggle to fit everything that I want to do in one day…..Funny because we no longer have a huge amount of house work – it takes me less then 30 minutes to clean our Motor-home every morning! So why don’t I have Healthy Mindset Healthy Body one one of my top 10 to do list?
Getting Stuck In A Rut
Its funny how we become like hermits in our way of life….doing the same thing day in day out, 24/7, 7 days a week. When do we make a change, and what will it take for that change to be put into place?
The other day I was flying home from Melbourne to the Sunshine Coast and it suddenly hit me…I no longer want to be unhealthy. I no longer want an Unhealthy Mindset, Unhealthy Lifestyle and Unhealthy Body. It was/is that simple!
My mind even spoke the words for me….”Let My Body Heal”
“Let My Body Be Healthy”
“Let My Body Be In Shape”
“Let My Body and My Mind Make Healthy Choices”
Only eating Healthy Desserts now and then!
How come it took so many years for my brain to get into gear, so that my body can respond to what it needs to do. I used to be very fit…and very trim – a very long time ago…actually I was very trim after our third boy, it was after my fourth boy that I had health issues. No longer will I let those health issues get in the way of Healthy Mindset Healthy Body.
It felt so good to let it all go….to let the frustration of not being healthy go.
To let the pain of my emergency c-section (we had to have one with our fourth baby) go.
To let my body know that it will be ok to heal itself.
Not sure how I came to the conclusion that I need to heal. Not sure what time of the day it happened. Just know that my body said “Enough is Enough” on Saturday….somewhere between Melbourne and Brisbane. So I cant even say I was in VIC state, NSW state or QLD state….when I realised that I can be healthy. That I will be Healthy.
Healthy Food Choices
Not to say that I am not Healthy with my Food Choices. Because I am. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables (mostly vegetarian with my food) and drink over 2 Litres of Water. Its more that my body doesn’t work on the inside. I have days where I feel so bloated, and so sick because I can’t get rid of waste material (was trying to be polite here!!) and days where I am so tried that I almost have to hold my eyes open…you know like that kids show “Tom and Jerry” where the cat holds his eyes open with match sticks? Well some days that is me…
Here is what I did today for Healthy Mindset Healthy Body….
Now Days I am not going to let my body feel like that.
I will be happy.
I will be trim and fit.
I will be healthy on the inside so that I can be healthy on the outside…..
I give my body permission to heal.
Have you thought about that concept?
If you are not feeling at one with your body then you will know what I mean, and what I am talking about when I say “that I give myself permission”….
Its not a matter of what you are doing with your eating styles, or not eating. Its not a matter of choosing bad healthy choices. Its more about the mind working better for your body.
The weekend away from life was good. I never had to make my bed for the two nights as I was staying in a back packers and only used the sheet for when I was sleeping.
I never had to worry about anything as I was in a conference learning about blogging.
Maybe I needed the weekend to myself?
Our Green Smoothie Machine
As a Mum its so easy to get caught up in the day to day life of caring for everyone and anyone. Not sure why or how, but I need to take time for me. I need time-out ….but not to be put into the naughty corner. Its more about personal time. Its more about mindset time. I have come along way from where and who I used to be. But there is still a long way to go before I feel like I am me again. Funny how we can easily become lost when we are a Mum!
I remember the first time my boys found out I have a name! It was so funny – because I was explaining how my name was “Lisa” but they kept on saying “No, your name is Mum”…we only had two boys then!
Life Can And Will Get in the Way
We all know that. We all have to accept that. What is really important is allowing time for healing. Allowing moments to let your self heal. I have a clearer goal in my life. Clearer then I have ever had before. Its almost like I “See” where/how/why/what my life is going to become. Its almost like I can “See” that it has already changed.
I will become Healthy.
I will become Stronger.
I will become Fit.
I will become ME.
What will you do to have a Healthy Mind Healthy Body?
