Health 100: Food and Your Health -- Fall '14

I'm so blessed to have an employer, FamilyCare Health Plans that embraces my passion and doesn't see it as a threat! They want me to continue doing what I love! I have the best of both worlds.

2 days, 3 lectures, 100 students

There's so many reasons I love visiting campus and sharing my passion for food and health with students. High on that is when they want to take a photo with me or have me sign their cookbooks. Priceless.

In between, the past

In order to change and grow, one of the most important things is to be honest with yourself. That's part of the reason I blog. I can write my feelings down for all to see. It keeps me not only honest with myself, but gives me a sounding board.  I'm not ashamed or afraid to share my feelings and I welcome constructive criticism. 

As I was talking with a respected professional, this was her advice: "Time to stop visiting the past, only visit the past for the purpose of evaluation and information gathering - e.g., what worked, what didn't and that's about it. Only focus on today and moving forward."She's absolutely right. Time to stop living in the past.  This is who I am today. No more looking back.

Life happens. Life ebbs and flows. I am no longer in the same place as I used to be. In most instances that's a good thing, but when it comes to my weight, not so good. I've put on some of the 170 pounds I had lost. I'm upset with myself. Disappointed.  Today, I'm somewhere in between my heaviest weight of 388 pounds and my lowest  of 218 pounds. So where I am today is what I must embrace. I can't keep holding on to what used to be. Yesterday is gone. It's time to use the past to make tomorrow better.

Zumba In Pink For A Cause

Yesterday, the church ministry Get Fit, that I am blessed to lead, held it's first Zumba In Pink event. It was an hour long Zumba class with everyone donning pink to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The proceeds of the event will go to a local Breast Cancer Foundation.

It was a sweaty, fun time -- here's a few photos...
