Feel Good|Look Good

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” Jim Rohn

I am a true believe that if you put on the right pair of shoes and the right clothes, you will somehow feel empowered. With that said, if you don’t feel good, not even a Christian Louboutin high will last long enough!

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease last year and I know what it’s like to not feel good.  After months of exhaustion, fatigue and weight gain for no apparent reason, I talked to my Dr. and he did a simple blood test and found out it was hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto’s disease.  After a few Doctor’s visits and medication as well as a more strict diet, I am feeling a million times better and know that when you are feeling good, it makes the world of a difference in your work, relationships, and overall happiness!

I try to make a constant effort in making healthy choices such as choosing fruit over potato chips or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.  Depriving ourselves is not the answer but it is important to make conscious healthy choices.  Because of my thyroid, I am prone to easy weight gain so here are my go-to snacks that are satisfying and easy on the calories.  Even if you do not have to lose weight or do not have a thyroid issue, they are healthy for everyone so I wanted to share!
