What is Good Health Buzz?

Hi there, and welcome to Good Health Buzz!

This is a personal health blog which I’ve just put together, but it’s really one that’s been doing the rounds in my head for the last couple of months.

Why this blog…why now?

I never fussed too much about what I ate – until last year when I found out that I was gluten intolerant.

I’d also had countless trips to the doctor because of stress, and I had absolutely no desire to exercise,ย never-mindย keep my body fit and healthy.

I HATED not being able to eat wheat and all the things I was used to eating: pastas, cookies, pizzas, sandwiches, and the rest.

And I was forced to get creative in the kitchen.

But, you know what the funny part was? ย I actually started to ENJOY cooking. (I used to find it annoying and a complete waste of time…)

When I started eating healthy, I started feeling better. I wasn’t as tired, as moody, or as negative. I became a lot happier, and changed my outlook on a lot of things – especially the things that were stressing me out.

Getting creative with healthy food

That’s when I decided that I wanted a healthy body. I wanted to feel good. Please don’t be under the impression that I want to be anorexic or a size 0 or whatever. I’m short and petite…that’s it. I’m in this to feel great about myself, not to weigh a certain number.

When you start eating right and focusing on what you’re putting into your body and treating it like a temple, you begin to want to take better care of it and make it stronger.

For me, that means getting fit and toned.

And that’s why I started Good Health Buzz.

What you can expect to find here…

A means of sharing my fitness progress and easy workout ideas that I’ve found useful, healthy recipes, inspirational articles, motivational posts about health and fitness, and positive goals with others who are looking for, or who are already living a healthy lifestyle.

The three main categories are:

  1. Choosing a Healthy Lifestyle
  2. Recipes and Healthy Cooking
  3. Building a Healthy Body

And that’s it!

I’m looking forward to connecting with you, and sharing my journey toward health and happiness.

      They do! Who knew? Cheers to health and glad I gave you a post idea. Can’t wait to see what it is hehe ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I don’t have a gluten intolerance, but I’d love to cut refined carbs from my diet, so adopting some of the gluten eating habits would be good for me. I will be following your new blog, Melanie – best of luck on your new venture!

      Hi Dana ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for the follow! I can’t wait to share some food ideas for cutting out refined carbs. It’s a lifestyle choice, that’s for sure. Now, I’d never go back to eating gluten even if I had the choice.

      1. That’s cleared my thoughts. Thanks for cobgtinutinr.

  3. The blog looks great!
    I think when we hit the point of wanting to feel better – healthier – and the massive pressure by society to be skinny isn’t the motivation for eating right and exercising, real true change can happen. I know that’s how it was for me. It sounds like you are on a similar path.
    I’m not perfect though, and can use all the help I can get in this department. Yesterday, after a very stressful day, I came home and ate a huge bowl of pasta to try to soothe myself. It’s so self destructive! I was so sick afterwords. Gluten hurts me! I hope you’ll write a bit about stress management and maybe planning challenges (I never seem to have healthy food ready to go in a crisis!).

      Oh comfort food…pasta. I UNDERSTAND. Lol. Have you tried gluten-free pasta? Rice noodles are also great, much lighter but still feels like you’re eating pasta. We eat this a lot. Definitely going to post loads about stress management…can never be too much of that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Your new site looks great and I look forward to following your posts. I recently started a low carb diet to lose some weight and try to get my sugar levels down. I do miss the bread, potatoes, rice and pasta but I feel so much better. It’s fun and challenging coming up with new recipes that everyone in the house will like.

      Hi Susan! I know what you mean. Some days I crave a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich. But it’s amazing what cutting out bread can do…definitely makes you get creative in the kitchen!

  5. I feel like lately so many people are developing food restrictions and allergies as adults. This didn’t used to be the case (as far as I know). I’ll definitely be coming back to your site- can always use healthy eating tips- not that I will follow them!
