Happy Valentine's Day! Are you planning something special with someone special? If you don't have a partner, are you doing something special for yourself? If not, don't you think you deserve to be treated well? I think you do.
Treat yourself at least as well as you treat someone else
You don't need to have another person to be your Valentine...be your own Valentine.
- Make a nice heart healthy meal for yourself. Salmon has great omega 3 fatty acids that are good for the heart. Add some green beans almandine and seasoned quinoa and you have yourself a beautiful healthy dinner. Top it off with some avocado chocolate mousse for a sinfully rich ending.
- Buy yourself some flowers and display them where you can see them. If they have a nice fragrance, so much the better
- Treat yourself to a spa day or a spa treatment like a facial, mani-pedi or massage. You deserve to be pampered.
Don't wait for Valentine's Day or any other special occasion to be good to yourself
Why do you need a specific date on the calendar to treat yourself well? Most of these occasions are what are known as "Hallmark moments" or reasons to purchase greeting cards. They're also a reason to purchase overpriced meals and other accoutrements to mark a made up holiday.
Pick a day and make it special for yourself. Take yourself on a date or stay home and enjoy your own company. Watch a movie, read a good book in front of a roaring fire, take a nice long luxurious bath with some epsom salts and a little lavender essential oil. Epsom salts contain magnesium which helps to relax your muscles, and lavender helps to relieve stress. Go to bed early and get a good night's sleep.
Be good to yourself. Eat heart healthy. Get plenty of sleep. Pamper yourself. Be the best date you've ever had.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Since June 2019, I decided to hold myself accountable for walking my talk. Several years ago, I was able to take off 135 pounds and essentially save my own life. I regained some of that weight in the last couple of years and I’m working my way back down. I’ve lost over 40 pounds since I began in June and have exercised nearly every day since August.
If you choose to join me on this journey, I hope I am able to impart some nutritional and lifestyle wisdom. Even though I may have gone off the rails temporarily I can still share some of my first hand experience as well as my acquired knowledge and training to help you make the right changes to live your best life.

As a health coach, I work with women who are facing serious health challenges like heart disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes or who have been diagnosed as having a precursor to a serious health issue such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar.
