My favorite sandwich!

Image

I woke up today early in the morning why? I wanted to make sure to have time for breakfast and prepare a veggie sandwich for lunch. Yesterday I bought a  piece of smoked salmon.  I remembered to use a whole grain bread,  I add my favorite vegetables like tomato, lettuce , chive , or avocado, this bomb of healthy fats will help me survive to a late dinner!

Too busy to be slim!

We work so hard. Watching kids, shopping plus housework, hitting work deadlines etc, we are so busy that we often forget about taking care of ourselves. What happens? We slowly begin to lose energy, gain weight, emotionally eat and feel useless.

The truth is, It’s not going to be better with your time. You have to take care of house, kids and work, so it’s a moment to learn how to take care of yourself. What does it mean? It’s time to plan ahead.

In order to stay healthy, fit and energetic all you have to do is  plan.

 

If you don’t think it’s so important or easy,try me. There are 4 easy steps to do it  You will see the difference after  1 week

Drink 8 hydrating drinks a day.

Limit yourself to one coffee daily and opt for green tea.

Exercise a minimum of three times per week. It doesn’t matter if it’s walking at fast pace, push ups or hitting the treadmill. As th

Don’t eat grain products after 2pm. Ten eat vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, nuts and seeds.

Wake up a little bit ealier than anyone else to stretch. It literally changes your day.

Don’t forget! Try to enjoy your life. When speaking with people in their 80s or 90s, they always say how they miss the “busy times”. 

Forget about elevator!

Why in the heck would you not take the stairs?! OK, if you carry million groceries oryou are ill, It’s OK, but other than that, there’s absolutely no excuse to take the escalator. When I was on vacation, I had a  50 pound suitcase and I  used the stairs. Since I I didn’t go for a gym, it was the great workout.

Diet and happiness

I liked to pretend that healthy lifestyle will transform me into a better person. A newer version of myself. A someone that doesn’t stay in her pajamas until noon, has the energy all the time, i always assume, that dieting would make me a complete person. Make all things right. It was dellusion.

Those steps are real for me:

step 1: don’t run away from feelings. write it down if you need to.

step 2: binge less. stop feeling guilty .

step 3: do yoga to feel happy.
