Be Healthy: My New Obsession
All my adult life, I have felt that I could eat anything and it would not affect me. I think I was holding onto my glorious teen years where I was a size 10, I had a ton of energy all the time, I could eat anything all hours of the day, stay up all night and still function the next day. Overall, I was just having a hell-ride of a time enjoying life.
But now at 37 years old, with 3 kids, and a home and family to take care of, I have a new obsession to be healthy. I am just finally realizing that I am decades older than that 18 year old girl and I really need to start taking care of myself better.
For years I have been a huge coffee drinker. And I don’t mean have just one cup in the morning and then go about my way. No, I was downing 3 cups before heading out the door to work (because I loved the flavor, not necessarily to get the caffeine) and then making it part of my day to drink at least another 3-5 while at work with lots of flavored creamer and sugar and sometimes 2 cups with dinner if we went out to eat. My biggest crutch was that I loved my coffee sweet. And while it is tasty, the flavored creamers are loaded with sugar and preservatives and just not good in large amounts.
Flash forward to five months ago, I made some small changes. What I needed was something to help me curb my cravings for sweets and help my body work at it’s peak naturally. And as a result of adding these changes into my daily routine, I actually feel like that 18 year old again, with tons of natural energy. And I’m not craving sugar. For the first time in over 20 years, I can openly admit that I’m not a crazed lunatic anymore when I make coffee in the morning. (I actually lost the sugar bowl, you can believe it.) Now I stick to one cup in the morning, sometimes with milk and sometimes black, and I make it last. I skip adding sugar and I’m fine with that.
