I don’t know about you, but it seems like after every holiday I am so very eager to get back to clean eating and taking care of my body.
Holidays are great for living in the moment and enjoying food, fellowship, friends and family. We eat differently during the holidays than we do everyday, and in our family that is ok as they are the perfect place for enjoying treats we don’t indulge in very often.
Today is the 5th of July and we had a great 4th of July celebration, but boy did I come home last night not feeling very well! I woke up with a sugar hangover and a bit of gall bladder pain which happens every time I have too many fatty foods.
Time to get my eating habits back to normal and get my body moving & feeling better!
To motivate myself, I go straight to my Health Tips Board on Pinterest.
Here are a few, some from New Nostalgia and some from other sites, that are getting me back on my familiar healthy living wagon. Enjoy & be inspired!
