"Health is a dynamic state of wholeness or integrity of the individual."
This is from my nursing theory reading material (Basic Assumptions Underlying Self-Care Theory) Health is all about the coherence and integrity of a person.
Without health, is a life of imbalance and chaos. It is the core gravitational force that keeps all that makes us who we are (mind, body, and spirit) -- together.
In the past week, I've been lagging on my weightloss efforts and it truly feels like I'm compromising the integrity of my health. I'm feeling far from peaceful and physiologically -- I feel like crap.
So I'm picking up the pieces and getting back on track... and on plan. This is the first day of many (21 days to be exact) sugar free lifestyle.
I'm loading up on cruciferious vegetables (ie. broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage -- fart fest in my future ---yes!TMI) to help detox the liver and not forgetting my multi-vitamin.
Honestly, I wasn't a believer in vitamins because not much of it is absorbed by the body, so what's the point. But I gave it a shot anyway, and been taking Women's Ultra Mega Active for about 3 weeks now, and I feel somewhat better than before. Who know it could just be another placebo effect.
The goal today is to stay focused, mindful eating, moderate exercise (I'm not 100%, so I'm taking it easy for a week)
