2016: Continued Evolving Health Goals

As I reflect on my not so great days of:

inflammation
brain fog
fatigue
A type/form of depression associated with health concerns. 
Vanities of ever changing body. 
Working out different to still help get the engine revved but not inflame the body. 
Frustrations of all side effects a person encounters with a thyroid condition. 
I thank God for this adventure!
Here is why:
I thank Him for reminding me to not take my immune system for granted.  Our immune system wants to protect me.  My body continually reminds me to do my part!
I thank Him for this amazing butterfly gland (my thyroid!) that is communicating to me how to balance my hormones on a deeper level that is not just about my nutritional needs but my mental and spiritual needs! Teaching me to use my voice in the things that are truly important!
I thank God for my brain fog.  It reminds me to always be humble!
I thank Him for the dark, gloomy feeling days.  It reminds me to be compassionate toward those who experience true, deep dispair and anguish that grips them.  
I thank God for reminding me that my body is not about vanity, the aesthetics.   It is truly about Whole Health!!!!  I look in the mirror and I am overcome by the love and beauty I see deep down.  I see my amazing heart and soul not my flesh and blood. 
I thank Him for slowing me down.  Reminding me I can’t smell the roses when I’m running but I sure can when I go for walks and hikes!

Thus for 2016….my health goals are to continue to LOVE this journey.  To not obsess about the dos’ and don’ts.  To not obsess about research.  To lot allow it to distract me from LIVING my LIFE….JUST AS IT IS!…AND TO LOVE MY LIFE JUST AS IT IS!!!

Here is to even more great days and learning into 2016!

2016: Simple Spirituality Goal

New Years Resolutions!

It seems like the number one (#1) resolution most people make is to LOSE WEIGHT!!

So here is a thought I have for everyone….

What if you make your NEW YEARS RESOLUTION about your SPIRITUALITY!?

What if we for 21 days reflect on a need, a prayer, a desire, a challenge, a change you want to make in your/our/my life!?

I know for me I have lots of things….lots of desires…lots of goals…lots of growth I would like to take to God to start my new year…..

I wrote many years ago about the power of fasting and the types of fasting.  I know from first hand experience how when you abandon your desires, your will, to God and pray for selfless petitions, pray for others, pray for God’s intervention….HE does amazing things!

So here is a thought…

Are you living up to who God made you to be?

What are some goals you really need to offer up to Him?

Where would you like to see your lifestyle grow this year?

When are you going to make the time to listen to HIS will?

How do you want God to work in your life for 2016?

7 years ago I experienced an amazing spiritual fast.  As I was petitioning prayers for my husband I experienced health benefits I never even anticipated or foresaw.

Over the course of 7 years I have learned more things about my health…my mind, body, soul connection.

I want to start my new year with the same simple spiritual goals I did 7 years ago!

What did I do 7 years ago?!

Shake…soup…salad!

It was as simple as that.

Thus it doesn’t matter if you are Paleo, vegan, Mediterranean, whatever…..pick a journal…notebook…..something to write your desires, goals, prayers for 2016.  Make a detailed “contract” with God and stick to it for 21 days!

Did you know it takes 21 days to change a habit or make a habit….thus good or bad!?

Did you know it takes 40 days to “eradicate” an “infestation”?!

I plan on for 21 days…starting January 1st….to post on Facebook a bible scripture and a book title that has helped me with this journey of Health and Wellness that is about the WHOLE mind, body, soul experience.

I will also write here, on the blog, in more detail my daily journal-ling as promised in an upcoming post about my blogging goals for 2016.

Are you going to join me in this opportunity to connect with your Spirituality with simplicity through shakes, soup, and salad?!

S to the 5th power:  Simple Spirituality with Shakes, soup, and salad!
