A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House
They say, "you are what you eat" No wonder I’m so cheesy (insert laughter here).
Seriously though, for me, I feel like what I eat. When I eat good healthy foods I feel good, energetic and healthy. When I eat crap, I feel like … crap.
So if it’s that simple, why do I do that to myself? I like most people have moments of weaknesses when my wants (chocolate, pasta, beer, did I say chocolate?) win over my needs (lean protein, healthy grains, green veggies).

My body rejects too much crap which keeps me on the correct path.
Times to come clean … my wants have been

Yup, I’m detoxing. Cleaning out my system – and my mind – with a two-day detox program that will still provide me with the essential minerals and vitamins I need each day. After that I’ll stay on course with a new workout program and better food choices. The holidays are coming. I need energy – and extra room in my jeans – to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
How about you? Are your wants beating up your needs? How do you get yourself on a positive healthy track? Healthy wives want to know …
