Are you too busy to be healthy? Do you think that in order to eat healthy has to be a battle between you, your will, and the taste buds of your family?

Beth Aldrich, healthy living and nutrition expert, joinrf Mom of Many Hats Radio to shed light on how we can transform our eating habits, and our attitude about food.  In her expertise, she knows that as real moms, we love food and we love to eat.  We don’t want to feel deprived as we move to a healthy lifestyle, and we certainly don’t want to battle our families either. Beth shared her strategies from her book Real Moms Love to Eat, that can help us realize that our love affair with food doesn’t have to come to an end, just so we can get back on the healthy track.

We All Have Issues! 

Beth addressed many issues that moms and women in general face when trying to adopt a healthy eating and living lifestyle.  Getting ourselves on track and our families on board isn’t always an easy task! In this broadcast Mom of Many Hats – Angie, and Beth discussed many sticking points as well as tips to get over the stumbling blocks to healthy eating. Some of the issues we talked about were:

  • Take small steps in making changes to a healthier food lifestyle. Too much change at once can be overwhelming.
  • Focus on the things you can do – empower your decisions.  Focusing on the “can’ts” can make the change much tougher.
  • Realize that we are in dysfunctional relationships with many of our favorite food friends (salt, sugar, carbs, fats).  We need to evaluate them and make them  healthy relationships.
  • Our relationship with food is often a very emotional one.  We need to address emotions attached to food and see if there is anything we need to change about the reasons we need or crave particular foods.
Beth also shared her favorite recipes from the extensive list of recipes provided in her book.  Her mouth watering recipes are sure to tempt even the pickiest of eaters!

Did you know that drug use and drug addiction is not only a problem with illegal substances?  Did you know that kids can get their hands on “designer” substances – substances that are similar to the illegal kind, but sold legally? Do you know that YOU play an important role in preventing substance abuse in your family?

If you are a parent, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.

Kim Obert, Program Manager, and Shirley Baum, Board Member of DrugfreeAZ.org joined Mom of Many Hats Radio for an important discussion on drug use in Arizona.  Although the discussion is based on Arizona statistics, this discussion is for everyone across the country, as Arizona is a snapshot of what is happening across our country.

Our discussion with Kim and Shirley included the trends in the use of substances. From prescription drugs, to illicit drugs, to designer drugs, our children are at risk from the use of substances that are harmful and addictive. With the average age of first use being 13 years old,  and an increase in the use and availability of substances, it is important for parents to have conversations early and often with their kids about healthy living and the dangers and risks of drug use and abuse. To have those conversations, parents and kids need to be armed with information.

Many of us know something about the commonly known substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, meth, alcohol and tobacco. Shirley and Kim shared information about “designer drugs” – substances that are often sold legally, but are used to simulate the affects of other substances.  Among those are “bath salts”, “glass cleaner”, “plant food”, “spice”, and others. They provided us with information for us as parents to use if we are suspicious about something we hear or see in our child’s possession. They also shared with us the things  that we can look for in behavior that may signal there is something that we should investigate – mainly, a substantial and marked change in their behavior.  As parents, they suggested that we “trust our gut”.

Our conversation also included resources on how we can open up dialogue with our kids about healthy living choices and drugs.  They provided 12 Steps in 2012 to build a better relationship with your child. Some highlights are:

  • Be a role model to your child.
  • Listen to your teens, avoid interrupting.
  • Help them to discover the feeling of gratitude.
  • Create scenarios and act out with your child, how they would handle a situation involving drugs.

Fit in 2012!

With the new year, many people make fitness goals.  Did you?

Fitness goals are often so hard to keep.  When it comes to our fitness, it is an area that we often give up on.  It is an area that so full of choices, and we have to make the right ones, from our food, to our lifestyle, to our activity.  It gets tough sometimes, because we can’t cut out food, lifestyle, or activities.  None of them are out of sight and out of mind.  We just have to choose the healthy way. With so many options in front of us, how do we make the right choices? How do we choose to have a healthy meal instead of fast food? How do we decide to move our bodies instead of sitting on the couch?

Fitness Isn’t Limited to the Gym!

Fitness Coach Dana Neve shared her passion for fitness and health by sharing her own fitness story and fitness routine. Through the use of at home programs, she showed us that being fit doesn’t have to be done at the gym.  Through using the tools and programs available, and through having accountability to a coach or workout partner, the path of fitness is just one step away. Dana shared a wealth of information as we discussed 10 fitness facts, regarding the importance, the physical and overall well being benefits, and the ease at which we can all start a healthy lifestyle – even if we are starting from square one.

Re-frame How We See Fitness 

As a motivator and teacher of healthy living and getting the body moving,  Dana reminds us that our health and fitness is a priority that deserves a regular spot in our appointment books.  Through taking the viewpoint of food as fuel for our bodies and realizing that our fitness goals are 80%what we eat, we can re-frame how we see food – that junk food and good tasting, satisfying food are not the same thing. When we open up our minds and taste buds, we can find a whole new world of foods that give us better gas mileage in our daily living. She also shared that progress in our fitness should be measured in how we feel and in inches, not in the daily number on a scale.
