As you think about what you put in your body, I ask you to consider this:
Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food.”
The Chinese Proverb states, “He that takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of the physician.”
William Shakespeare said, “Things sweet to taste prove in digestion sour.”
Here in America, we have the very simple proverb, “You are what you eat.”
When you are trying to transform your body, your health, and your life, there will be pitfalls along the way….that’s just how it is. These pitfalls or “booby traps” are things to which we are all susceptible. The only way to make sure that you don’t stop your forward momentum toward your goal of personal transformation is to challenge your thoughts and the thoughts and opinions of others that could derail you.
I am sitting here with writer’s block trying to come up with something interesting to say…nope, no sudden inspiration.
I am tired as a dog, and all around me I see my friends working hard and feeling the pinch of this economy. I think at this point, we are all in the same boat.
My life since the launch of this site in August 2008 has been interesting, to say the least. Right after the launch, I left for a ten-day trip to visit my family in Florida knowing that I would come back to a busy, exciting fall in New York City…little did I know what I was in for!
I am so pleased to be writing this, the first entry in my blog. It signifies the launch of my new web site, and this project has been long in coming!!
Like most people, I am overloaded, under-rested, stretched to the max, and flying by the seat of my pants. As someone that preaches balance to my clients all day long, I often need to remind myself that I need to practice what I preach, or I won’t be taken seriously. Attaining a state of balance in my own life has been supremely challenging lately.
My dear Mom always said, “When it rains, it pours.” Like most old sayings that stick around, this one seems to be true.
