But every day leading up to that, we can always do things to help us keep our bodies, our energy levels, our ability to stay well top of mind. In this episode, I will engage with you something I call Leaving a Legacy of Health. This is about looking forward. The choices you make today have a lasting effect.

To ignore your future goals and desires makes it so much harder to make good choices today. Connect the dots is one of my favorite sayings.

    #9 Personal Growth and Your Health Connect the dots. Making your health a priority supports your evolution in a variety of areas of your life. Focusing on your personal growth enables you to make necessary adjustments in your health. I came up with several areas where you can put your attention. In doing so, you can invite your body to meet higher standards by which you want to live your life and express yourself. Based on my experience, focusing on your health brings enormous value to you as a person. You express your belief in your own worthiness when you make taking care of your body a priority. For example, do you honor your body with whole, fresh food, but not too much? Or do you trash your body with chemicals and poisonous substances like excess alcohol and sugar? Do you express your appreciation for your body by moving, breathing, stretching, and getting a good sweat? Or do you ignore your body’s need for movement and leave yourself discarded at your desk or on the couch? Do you see how it is co

    #8 Knock It Off I'm excited to talk with you about 'Following the Five Rules', as laid out in Mastering Leptin, by Byron Richards. This approach is systematic and will show you where you have room for improvement in your relationship with meals, quantity, frequency, and quality. The result may likely be a renewed and refreshed experience of weight loss, increased energy, and feeling more strategic in meal planning. I loved reading Mastering Leptin for the third time. I get more out of it every time I read it. What is new now is that I am using the planning method as taught by Byron Richards with my clients. They love the results, and I hope you will too. From my own experience, the most dramatic thing I did to comply with his recommendations was to quit snacking. What I most enjoy about this (besides my slender waistline) is that I am really hungrier for dinner. Mark and I moved our dinner up since we gave up our afternoon snack.

It’s like having a road map, so you don’t get lost.   I am very hopeful about this podcast episode for you. In the old days, I used to have no definition between my meals. It seemed like I started in the morning and used food throughout the day to distract myself, soothe over my emotions, and to give me energy because I was so depleted from eating so much junk food. That seems like another lifetime ago. Now, I am able to enjoy very satisfying meals, with an occasional afternoon snack before going out to exercise.

    #6 Getting Support Creating a community of like-minded health enthusiasts can do wonders for you on your journey. Don’t go at it alone! My sincere desire in creating this episode for you is to inspire you to have supportive buddies to go on this journey of enjoying massively improved health. Whether it is your family, your friends, your co-workers, a walking club you join, or a class that you take, it makes all the difference in the world when you are not alone. The other reason why it’s a big deal for you to be encouraged by others is the effect this closeness has on your immune system. Not only can others encourage you, they can often love you when you are less than thrilled by your own behaviors. None of us is perfect, and you certainly don’t have to be perfect to improve your health. Sometimes getting acceptance from others can remind you that you can do this. You can improve your habits and practices. You can get better a little bit at a time. Your goals are just as important to you as anyone else’s
