As a makeup artist, I love to make people look good. Because when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you're likely to treat other people "good" (I hope).
(See exhibit a below)
When I personally feel like i have been well put together, there's a sense of happiness, contentment. However, that's just looking at my appearance.
As a PA-C, I preach on the importance of a healthy BMI. I suggest a routine exercise schedule and recommend eating 5 servings of fruits and veggies, while also incorporating whole grains and protein. (MyPlate)
Reality check: Visited my Primary Care Provider the other day, found out my total cholesterol was creeping up, AND I am totally overweight!!! Well, that was no news flash, I already knew it. But what am I going to do about it?
Aha moment: It's not all about the way you look on the outside, there's also beauty in how healthy you are. Eureka!
This is where discipline and shifting of priorities come in.
Challenge: I will undertake a weight loss challenge. I'm not one to diet, so it's going to be difficult for me.
I'll keep you updated, I'll even show some before and after pics! Well, we'll see...
