There are a million and one books, websites, social media sites about healthy eating, who needs another blog? Well, our children are the first generation expected to live shorter lives than their parents. WHAT?!?!?! It's true, here's an article from The New York Times discussing the findings. The article is more than 10 years old, but I think we can all safely say we haven't righted the Titanic yet.
This makes me so incredibly sad and motivated to give us all more time. That's exactly what happens when you change your eating and exercise habits--you get more days. I think we all want more for our children than we had, so don't we all want them to have more days?
It took me more than 7 years to get to the place I am in my health. I'm not perfect, and I'm going to be really open and honest in my writing. However, I do work hard to educate myself and make good food choices for me and my family. Through this blog I hope to encourage others to make good food choices and start the journey of better health. I want to give you and your babies more days. When I was thinking of starting this blog I told my mom that even if I only help and encourage one person, it's all worth it.
Here's my proposal. I'm not a health coach. I'm not a medical professional. I want to be your friend that gives you guidance you want and encouragement you need. Follow along with my healthy journey (it's a journey, not a destination), and let me come along on yours too.
I literally get excited thinking about other people getting healthy! EEK!
