If it take an average of 21 days to create a new habit, I am wondering how many bad habits myself and my kids managed to create in the past TWO YEARS! One of these habits for certain has been an uptake in sugar and processed foods consumption! I am most certainly a comfort food ( sugar and high carbs ) for hard times, celebrations, and the snacky times sort of person, so are my kids. So we made some poor habits because those were HARD TIMES and are now we are all feeling it.
So what are the repercussions of our bad habits and why do we need to change them?
First here is what was happening: Sugar cereal for breakfast, granola bar for snack ( chocolate covered, yummy maybe two of these ) Lunch NOODLES and cheese, or nachos and cheese Dinner maybe a couple slices of cucumber, meatloaf, and potatoes. and then some gummies, or licorice or sour kids. My kids kept getting sick, run down and not bouncing back.
Here's the short story: sugar and processed food create inflammation. I knew that...but I didn't understand it. BUT I sort of figured that this is why my kids ( and I ) weren't well.
So, as a health teacher ( oh the shame ) I had to do some digging to understand more about the impacts of sugar and explain to my kids why there were getting sick all the time ( they are teens, they only sort of listen to me ramble on about health facts ) But they were sick and tired of being SICK AND TIRED.
I read the book The Glucose Revolution, by Jessica Inshaupe ( big life changer ), went deeper into the work of Julie Daniluk, anti-inflammatory food expert ( all made sense now ) and started to look into the metaPWR system doTERRA was coming out with, and why they made this system. AND I started to make small changes. And as I went along, I started to keep track of what I did and made it into a classroom and facebook group to support others.
Here's the real miracle my kids started to listen as they witnessed MY LIFE CHANGED.
My health improved, I wasn't getting the coughs and sniffles, my energy increased, they could see that I was more resilient to hard times and happier ( this probably impacted them the most ) and I released weight.
So my kids started taking what I was doing seriously and ASKED to do the same and now their health is bouncing back!!!!!
