Last week we reported that German discount grocery chain, Lidl, was coming to Montgomery Village. It’ll be located in the Professional Center across from the Montgomery Village Shopping Center.
Today we’ve been able to confirm that Aldi, another German discount grocery chain, will also be opening a location in Montgomery Village. Aldi will be located in the Montgomery Village Shopping Center in the old CVS location, next to Big Lots.
I was told that the plan is in motion for the construction to start in the shopping center, but an exact date has not been given.
Sad news out of Silver Spring, as “Urban Farmer” Charlie Koiner passed away earlier this week, according to Washington Gardener.
Charlie Koiner grew up on a farm in Rockville in the 1920s. In 1979 he purchased land in Downtown Silver Spring, where he owned and operated Koiner Farm for almost 40 years.
The urban farm, located near the Silver Spring Library at 737 Easley Street, contained beets, blueberries, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, turnips, and a lot more.
For almost four decades, Charlie would often wake up at 4:30am to go outside and tend to the garden.
Charlie was 98.
You’ve tried Keto.. South Beach Diet… Atkins… The Whole 30... Weight Watchers… Cutting Carbs.. Herbalife…
Maybe you lost the weight the first time. But ask yourself this…
Did you keep the weight off?
How do you feel when you look in the mirror? Are you happy? Did you make any long term healthy habit changes when you initially lost weight?
Or did you yo-yo diet back all the weight…and then some?
Trust me. I’ve been there. I was overweight my entire life until I found my passion for health and fitness. My heaviest weight was 160 pounds and I’m only 5”1.
The thing about diets is that sure you can lose the weight to start, but can you stick to the kind of lifestyle that requires you to cut out your favorite foods for the rest of your life?
Can you stick to the 5 days of JUST cardio that you’re doing for the rest of your life?
Will that make you happy?
Chances are this kind of lifestyle is not sustainable. Hell. There’s no way I’d be able to keep that up and even if I did I know I wouldn’t be happy with my life.
Isn’t it time you start trying to make long term habit changes to your health?
That way, when something pops up in your life that causes your schedule to change (a new job, retirement, a new baby, a puppy, a new relationship.) you’re able to get right back on track because you have these healthy habits that you’ve built up and practiced for some time that it’s easy to get right back on track!
Fast weight loss doesn’t mean maintainable weight loss. If you don’t know how to properly reverse out of a diet and slowly add calories back in you most certainly WILL pack the pounds right back on.
I don’t think i’ve ever met someone who’s done a fad diet who thinks “I can’t wait to rebound all this weight back!”…
Maybe every time you start a fad diet, you have the mentality that “this is it.This time I’ll KEEP it off!”
Maybe THIS time it’s time to try something different.
Here’s the secret to keeping the weight off:
Making sure you’re allowing yourself to have a balance of foods you love to eat and crave and nourishing foods that you know are GOOD for you and your health. That’s IT.
You do not need to do LOW FAT or LOW CARB diets. It’s not necessary to lose fat.
Life is about being happy with who you are and health plays a huge role in this. The greatest gift you can give yourself, your family, and the world, is a healthy YOU.
I'm currently accepting 2 more spots for my Online Coaching program. If you're struggling with your health or finding that balance & middle ground in your life and find yourself continuously doing gaining the weight back every single time, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or click the link below.
It's time to find your Balance, Happiness, and Freedom!❤️
