A brief introduction of myself – my husband and I recently moved to Georgia from Louisiana, I’m inspired to help my patients be the best versions of themselves and oh, I’m only 5 feet tall…so surely I’m not that intimidating. Nutrition has played a huge role in my life for several years, which is why I chose this path. I’ve always been pretty active, but never really ate like I ‘knew’ I was supposed to. Is it just me, or can we all relate to that?
Here’s the thing. We all have our own journey in health. Even for me, it took a while to understand that I have one body, and one body only, and it’s my job to do the very best I can to take care of it. Don’t get me wrong. It was a long trip before I landed at my health and wellness destination. It’s easy for us to like the ‘thought’ of eating healthy. But, what good does that do us when we don’t put it into action? Now, I’m not saying let’s look through the negative lens and nitpick everything we do wrong, wellness-wise. No, what I’m saying is I GET it.
Okay, so you’re asking…what’s the point to all of this? Well, we want to get past the misconceptions, fears and shame, and encourage you to take care of your body…for YOU! It’s a road trip that we, at Eagles Landing Endocrinology, want to take with you. However, we’re going to skip the “diet” mentality route and take a detour to your new lifestyle journey. It will be a ride filled with nutrition, fitness, happiness and success. Of course, there will be bumps along the way. There will even be times when you want to take the byway to all the sodas, candy and well, let’s face it—the unhealthy avenues. But, that’s where we come in.
We’re here to help you manage, navigate and take control of your wellness journey. Soon enough, you won’t need that GPS to tell you where to turn. Eventually, you won’t even have to think twice about the choices in your healthy lifestyle.
Now, let’s get to the blog. So, what does being healthy really mean? Well, it can vary depending on your personal goals. For some, it might be about wanting more energy throughout the day, or being disease free, or maybe even wanting to have that slim-toned body. It could even be more specific, like wanting to run a 5K or a marathon. Whatever those goals may be, there are three categories that apply to everyone—physical, emotional and mental health. The answer to your question you’re afraid to ask is yes, eating healthy does affect each of these categories. But, is that really a surprise?
Think of it this way. If you had the energy to do what you want, a positive outlook on life to handle stress better, reduced risks for health issues and more physical strength—wouldn’t you feel better all-around? Well, food plays one of the biggest parts in that. And an added bonus, you would even look better and surely have more self confidence to tackle whatever may come your way!
Let’s get real. To be your best “healthy” self, there’s no magic potion or shortcut. The goal is to be sensible and find an approach that best fits you. The good news? You can do it! And, you are in complete control. Your life is filled with choices and you have the power the choose the greatest wealth, your health. One of the most rewarding things in life is taking control of your well-being and eating accordingly, and we’d love to be the one to help you!
