Our bodies seamlessly know what to do and have all the answers if we humans get out of our own way. We are so brain smart and forward thinking that we have forgotten the basic ways we have lived for eons before processed foods, raspberry ketones, Garcinia Cambogia, point counting, calorie counting, and green coffee bean extract came onto the scene. Before all the fad diets and potions, we humans thrived rather than survived. We radiated energy, and functioned without modern conveniences quite well, thank you. Funny thing is, nowadays we have to schedule and plan ahead our methods of simplification. I’m with you there. I need to strategize my food shopping to get the raw veggies, healthy raw fats, raw pastured dairy, pastured eggs, and proteins from specific specialty stores all over San Francisco. Strategic planning and action firmly sets our intention in place. My thoughts gravitate towards completing my to-do list. Then I feel so accomplished at finishing my to-do list, I am happy to reap the rewards by partaking in the cooking and eating of the things I so painstakingly procured!
Results are a happy smiling me, which results in a happy smiling husband and kids. Radiance. If I grabbed takeout food or drive through pickups on my busy day, the result would be a crabby me, nutrient poor delivery of foods to the cells in my body, a bad attitude, acne, gas, weight fluctuations, and a general lackluster life. Not radiant.
Food and workouts are a part of it, as well as a spiritual path. So many people put their focus on the calories burned during a workout. Yes, working out in any form is awesome, but it is only part of a holistic approach. What are we doing the other hours of the day? How are we recovering from the exercise? What we do with the other hours that we are not exercising is far more important than what we do for the duration of the physical exertion. The recovery time can ruin your efforts or support your efforts.
I want to hear from you!
