The good fat

Yes there is such a thing as good fat!  I don’t mean on your body…. Ha! The good fat I refer to is in food. Yea I know, you probably don’t care about the “good fat” in food that is very important to your health and weight. Would you rather read something in reference to a magic pill that could melt away your body fat? Yes? Ok good, because hear it is…… Eat good fat! So many people who strive to loose weight or perform better are loosing sight in the actual facts and reality. You must eat fat — the GOOD FAT to feed your brain and muscles for optimum performance. I have found that some people are so desperate to either loose weight, or improve physical endurance that they forget the basics. Yes, you can do anything you want to, however you want to if you have the will to do it. That’s great, that’s awesome, that’s superb…. if you’re talking about long/short term goal setting. I am talking about your physical health and well being which is undoubtedly tied in to your emotional well being (remember it’s all connected). So yes, you can do anything you want to but not however you want to when it comes to feeding your body for optimum performance. I’m talking to those who are afraid of food. Yes you!There is no secret, no short cut to a healthy mind and body. It’s all really simple if you allow it to be. Stick to the basics, they wont steer you wrong.

Don’t avoid the good fats. Like and engine, your body needs, craves the good fats such as; avocado, salmon, and almonds. It’s essential for weight loss as well as maintaining your mental well being. Good fats keep depression, fatigue and memory fog at bay. If you’re complaining of exhaustion or achy joints, try eating more healthy fats. Stop avoiding the good stuff for fear of calories. You burn off the good fats quicker and you’ll feel much better with your workouts or in general. Fuel your engine with a healthy dose of good fats and notice the difference in your mood and your daily performance, whatever that may be! Bottom line, your brain needs the good fat to be healthy. That goes for every area in your life.

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
