The Choose Health Challenge Sponsored by BistroMD

Believe it or not, there was a time when a less-than-healthy Alicia existed. That was BC, before child, of course. Back in college, I'd go weeks on end with 0-3 hours of sleep a night, running on over-caffeinated beverages, power naps, and low impact work-outs (ie: walking around campus with my old roommate scoping out our latest crushes and trying to accidentally bump into them on purpose. Ah... good times!).

One day a friend asked me if I could recommend a doctor to her because she wanted to go for a wellness checkup (do they still call it "wellness check-ups" when you're an adult?). My response? "Er... I don't have a doctor, but I have a GYN." Well, at least I had my pap smears down pat, right?!

Wrong!

From that moment on, I made it a point to choose health. Like, all the way. I tried to get a few more hours of sleep in each night, save for midterm season, finals season, and partying weekends. I actually started to workout, as in, going for a run at the gym (I'd stop ballet dancing the semester before and needed something to keep me active). I stopped drinking so many caffeinated drinks and replaced it with water. And I found myself a doctor in addition to my GYN.

That mindset has followed me into young adulthood and Motherhood and I'm happy that it has. It's pretty awesome how one simple change can lead to a lifetime of healthy chooses. And that's what BistroMD is all about -- choosing health.

  1. I was the same way! I really didnt start taking care of myself, and eating right, until I had kids.

    Mmmm, these BistroMD meals seem like they'd be pretty tasty! Im thinking they may be good to bring to work for lunch.

  2. What a great service, you can never be too passionate or careful about your health. As they say "prevention is better than cure."

  4. This would be great for those days that I don't feel like cooking but still want to eat healthy by not hitting up the drive thru.
