Are You Getting Itchy?
I know I am, and it's only partly because of this excessive cold spell we are in. Wow, is it cold. Florida and all other southern states are looking pretty good right about now.
Speaking about looking good. How are you doing with your mirror image?
I get asked sometimes why I eat so healthy, you know "Why spend all that time cooking and all that time planning my meals. You can't stop the aging process you know."
Truth be told it is my goal to be healthier this year than last. And the only way to "stop the aging process" is to die. Not on my list this year, but that is out of my hands.
The poet Dylan Thomas wrote of death and dying "Do not go gentle into that good night", and isn't that really why we work so hard in the kitchen?
Not in a quest for immortality, but to keep our minds and bodies sharp as long as we can.
Not to deny we are getting older, but to be better as we age.
To take care of the precious gift of life we have been given, not to abuse it with excess of anything, maybe especially food.
So why I am getting itchy?
Because I personally have a passion to be better, and I have even more of a passion to help others reach their health potential - to lose bodyfat, get stronger, feel better - BE better.
Are you with me?
Is your fire burning?
Are you ready to put aside the things that are pulling you down, to let go of the excuses, cast off the toxic people who tell you it can't be done?
Are you ready to take action, to plan meals, to grocery shop, to eat foods we know are good for us?
Let me know in the comment section below that you are itching to get more from 2018.
To your best health,
