Well, now that we have decided that we
want to start on that “Year To A Better You”, we have to start
someplace. But where? What do we do first? It can be a bit
overwhelming. But as I said before, we are going to start out with
steps. One step at a time will get you to where you want to go.
Ok, so first things first.
We need to get some kind of little
notebook, file on computer or phone and set down and ask ourselves
these questions? Why? It gives us a good look at our lives, what we
eat, how, when, etc.. And from this we can start creating our plan.
You have to have a plan or you will fail. This will help us keep our
objectives and what we need to do. Just begin asking yourself these
1- What do I eat every day?
2- What do I drink every day and how
much of it do I drink?
3- When do I eat every day?
4- Do I do any kind of physical
5- Do I get enough rest every day?
6- Am I eating anything that would be
considered nutritious for my body?
7- How many medications do I take every
day and for what?
8-Can I come off of any of these
medications in time, simply by changing my diet? (this is not for
those who have serious conditions and cannot come off, but for those
who are on things simply because of poor diets, etc.)
9- How much sweets do I eat during the
10- Do I drink any pure water during
the day? ( and don't tell yourself, I get it in my tea or coffee. I'm
talking just plain water)
11- Do I get up with any energy in the morning? (Do you
feel just as tired when you get up as you do when you go to bed?)
12- Do I need stimulants to get me
going? (such as coffee, cappuccino, energy drinks, etc.)
13- How much time do I spend in front
of the TV and computer every day?
14- How often do you eat out?
15- What places do you eat out at?
16- What is the average cost when you do eat out?
Be honest with yourself here because
it's your life you are working on. The more honest we are with
ourselves the better this will work.
Now, for our first step..
1- Answer all these questions
2- Check out your kitchen.
What types of foods do you have? I want
us to go to our cabinets, pantry, fridge, freezers and do an honest
look at what foods we purchase. Do you have Live Foods or do you have
Live foods are what brings actual
nutrients to our bodies and Dead foods are those things that have NO
nutritional value at all. They might taste good, but they do nothing
for our body. If it helps, put all the Dead food in one pile and all
the Live food in another pile.. what pile is bigger?
Why do we want to do this? We can
begin to see what we are taking into our bodies and how we can begin
to change it. And even better, start adding up ALL the cost of the
Dead food and see how much you spend on tearing your body down. This
can be an eye opener!
I think this will be enough to keep us
busy until next week. And we can begin another step on our journey!
