Spring Cleaning


Can you believe it? Time has been flying and I'm just trying to keep up! The fact that we've been packed with event after event including school and work has made this year fly by so quickly already. This past weekend we were supposed to visit friends all the way in Columbus, Ohio, but some plans didn't work out so we had the weekend at home. It was a blessing!

We were able to enjoy the amazing weather (rain and shine), run errands, and completely clean OUT our house! My husband and I have forgotten what it is like to have a normal weekend at home. We completely took apart our house to clean as much as we could and I ended up clearing out NINE paper grocery bags of clothes including things I've never worn!

My current journey to the "WHOLE better me" has been very emotional. It hasn't only been about saying NO to food temptations or working out 1-2 hours six days out of the week, but it has involved my own personal "spring cleaning"! I've been working on the emotional aspect of becoming healthier, which has been the hardest part. It is strange but my "spring cleaning" this weekend was therapeutic. As I was going through all my clothes, it was an amazing feeling to get rid of all the clothes that are too big and that I don't ever want to fit again.

I had the opportunity to spend time with two of my closest friends at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. We walked around the mall for almost four hours and had the opportunity to catch up. I have lost the desire to buy anything for myself until I've reached my "health" goal status. It was an awesome time to spend time with my friends and I even had the opportunity to talk to them about how they can improve their health too!

My whole point of this blog about MY health is to encourage you to take a look at the clothes in your closet. It's not about HOW you look or WHAT clothes you wear. I'm not trying to sound materialistic about clothing either. It's about how you FEEL when you wear the clothes. Do you feel healthy? Do you feel at your optimal health status? Take a deep look into what your "optimal" is. Clothes can hide more than what you look like but can end up masking what you feel about yourself. Are you at the best that you can be? For yourself? For your family? And lastly for your patients?

I am not only doing this for my family and myself… but I am doing this to be an example to my future patients. To be an inspiration. To be a motivation. What are you going to be to YOUR patients? Food for thought! Have a great week!
