Maritza Is Cooking in My Kitchen
During the time of the "Big Chop" of my hair, I believe that I'm going through another metamorphosis of my life. Not only my hair, but other aspects in my life. My husband and I vowed healthy eating and living for our family. He would love to come off of insulin! And, I've been hospitalized twice for some heart 'mishaps'. According to my doc, I am clinically obese (WOW) and I need to lose 90 lbs to be at my healthy weight. How did this happen?
I was always an active person. I would ride a bike anywhere and was able to maintain my small figure until about 5 years ago (I'm 45 years old, now). A lot of my weight gain came from 1. stress; 2. bad eating habits; 3. complacency. I would go to work, come home tired emotionally and physically (on the way home grabbing fast food), shower the kids and myself, then bed! Exercise?...who has time? I didn't!
I have a whom I like to mention that always encourages and checks on me! My friend Maritza. When I decided to live healthy, Maritza and I had a long conversation on healthy eating (not dieting, as she says and will correct you when you say the 'd' word), vitamins and 'keeping your body moving'! (Maritza) "I know you work from home, but you can move your body while you work, let me tell you how..." She listens to you and tries to help you with your goals. She believes in helping you look good inside and out!
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. Through determination and support, we will be able to form a good habit of healthy living! Please go to Martiza's blog to see "What She's Cooked Up"! She says, 'Healthy Eating is NOT Boring'! And, believe me she has a million ways for you to cook something healthy. Whether she suggest taking out a fattening ingredient and replacing with a healthy ingredient, or she will simply try different versions and share.
Thank you, Maritza for your continued support!
