A couple of days ago I was meditating on what to blog about. Since working with my intuition I have learned that if you want an answer to a question all you have to do is ask, wait and the answer will come. On this day I did just that. After I finished meditating I proceeded with my morning routine. It wasn’t a half an hour later that my sister called and asked if I would jot down my recipes and send them to her so she could start eating better in hope of losing a little weight. It was at that moment that I realized that my answer had come through my sister. So, since making the commitment to follow my intuition I immediately started a new category, recipes and tips for healthy eating a subject near and dear to my heart.
I love to cook and create fabulously tasting meals. It just so happens that they are also great for melting off the fat. Seriously, I eat quite a bit because, lets face it, I like to eat. I have simply come up with a creative way of cooking that has worked great for me. It has allowed me to go from a bursting size twenty-two to a comfortable size sixteen in five short months with almost zero effort on my part. I just started cooking with the freshest foods without being to rigid as to not enjoy life. I am never hungry because if I am, I eat. I eat about five times a day and I am not exactly into exercise. I do make sure to move my body during the day.
Being that I am an administrative assistant I don’t get much exercise from my job. Therefore, I make it a point to dance every day. The minute my feet hit the floor I am off to dance for thirty minutes. I tap into my inner drunk girl and get down with my bad self. I dance because I know I have to move my body and dancing makes me happy. I also walk. I walk because it makes me feel connected to the earth. I often like to do a walking meditation using a mantra to keep my mind quiet and still. I am able to see the bigger picture now. It is not about weight, or looks. Those are all superficial things. I believe if I live a life that supports balance of mind, body and spirit I am sure to radiate a beauty that can only come from inside. I do not need to try and fit into what society wants us to think is beautiful. It’s about something much deeper than surface beauty.
