Feelin' Kinda Funky... My Random Thoughts Tonight

Since Madi's latest hospital stay, shunt surgery, and shunt infection scare (no infection thank God!) I've felt like I'm in a bit of a funk.  Stress = eating for me, so I've been craving (and eating) all the bad stuff.  This, in turn, makes me feel bloated and yucky, which in turn makes me feel more funky, and that leads to, you guessed it, more eating.  

I decided I needed to fill my body with nutrients and get out of this funk so I did a 7 day juice cleanse.  Yesterday was the last day of my cleanse but I feel like I have SO much more energy and have decided to have a green smoothie for breakfast every day to start my day off right.  I hope to keep it up!  I've also cut the junk and gone back to whole foods.  I have been working out at home any evening I can and have been making sure to spend time in prayer each night.  I know it's important to take care of myself, which is one area I don't often do great in, but I am really trying!  Oh, and tomorrow I'm getting my hair trimmed and colored.  I'm starting to feel back to my normal spunky self, and know that will help too.

What are some easy, but important, ways you take care of yourself?

Thank you for this great reminder! While fresh fruits and veggies are plentiful, so are the snackie foods that accompany vacation time. What we eat truly does make a difference!
