Don’t freak out, it’s only Thanksgiving! I’m sorry if that hurt your feelings… but sometimes we need a reminder that just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean you have to abandon all of your healthy eating habits. While this holiday is, for mot people, a day to over-indulge in some of your favorite foods that doesn’t mean you have to indulge so much you regret everything.
There are ways to be responsible on this delicious day… here are some tips:

A lot of us eat really well- Almost all organic, non-GMO, natural, healthy… but WHY is that healthy? What is the big deal with “Non-GMO”? First, let’s touch on what GMOs are: GMOs, or “Genetically Modified Organisms” are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated through genetic engineering in a laboratory… not out in nature.

In my opinion it is the best time of year because we are reminded of the joy of family and friends.

After the birth of my son, my hair started falling out. At first, it was no big deal. I mean, as a curly haired girl, I’ve been known to clog a few drains in my day.
BUT… this was different… the hair was falling out at the root and when I ran my fingers through my hair while washing, I easily pulled out clumps of hair. It was a nightmare but I knew there was a way to reverse it.
Have you ever heard the quote, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” by Jim Rohn? He has a point – the people we are around have a lot of influence on us, whether we are aware of it or not. One of the best things I have ever done for myself when it comes to self care and changing negative self talk to positive self talk was I really paid attention not only to the people that I surrounded myself with in person, but also the people I surrounded myself with on social media. You may not realize this, but the people you surround yourself with on social media can actually make a big impact on how you feel about yourself.
I’ve loved sweets since I was a little girl. It’s characteristic of my dad’s side of the family, and my mom is sure to remind me of that whenever I’m complaining about how I need to quit. Put some fast food or a bag of chips in front me, and my willpower is rock solid,aaa
When we exercise we create muscle tears because we are straining our muscles. These micro tears are what make our muscles tender after a good workout and in order for us to get stronger we need our torn muscles to heal- which takes time. This rest time is usually why people separate what part of the body they’re focusing on day by day in the gym, (ex: Monday-Arms & Back, Tuesday- Legs, Wednesday- Cardio, etc.) or work out every other day and having an active rest day in between training days.
