Information Overload

Enough already. In pursuit of health, wellness, and a slimmer, fitter body folks offer me advice all the time. I'm open to suggestions, feedback, new ideas and sometimes I seek the information. Currently, however, I feel inundated with information. What to eat. What not to eat. Whey Protein or Soy Protein. Agave or sugar. How much water should I drink. How to exercise. How not to exercise. To squat or not to squat.  How much sleep do I need.  The debates over how to eat healthy and live well go on and on. The opinions are varied and the sources unlimited.

Today, with the internet, social media, and access to 24 hour news -- oh and health coaches, nutritionists, etc. Information is available at the ready and sometimes I'm not ready. It's difficult to discern what's right, what's best. Sometimes I just want to scream. Aaaaaaaaaaaa. I just did.

Seriously, I don't want to think so hard about it. I just want to eat food -- real food, exercise, and have some fun! My dad always says life is suppose to be fun. Think back to childhood days and how you would play freely. Okay, so maybe we can't go revert to that extreme, but you get my drift. Sometimes I think we are over-thinking this whole healthy lifestyle thing. I don't think it has to be or should be so complicated. I'm sticking to the basics: Eat food -- real food, drink water, exercise, rest, and for goodness sake have some fun! Join me why don't you?
