There were a few things that inspired me to start this blog. One of the things that proved to be most inspirational to me is this: I am inspired by the fact that our bodies are meant to be and feel amazing, and that we can create a lifestyle of self-care and healthy living by making small improvements every day.
Healthy living is not something you can just do by flipping a switch. Granted, some people can, but most people find failure and frustration down that road, which can lead to be more destructive than helpful. It is my belief that by small and simple things, great things can be accomplished. Just make one little healthful change today that improves upon where you were yesterday.
It is my belief that by small and simple things, great things can be accomplished. Just make one little healthful change today that improves upon where you were yesterday. Don’t expect leaps and bounds all at once. Take them step at a time, adjustment at a time, and have the patience to allow your healthy living to build upon itself. This is why I am constantly posting recipes, tips, and workouts all over my blog, Facebook page, and Instagram. It’s because YOU CAN DO THIS. Find a few goals that you want to work on, and know that you have a support group here standing behind you!
That being said, I have compiled some healthy eating tips for you to choose from that you can start today! Start by picking one or two to work on, and feel free to come back to this list for more ideas later when you are ready to pick up a couple more goals!
Say yes to more good fats (Eat Fat to Burn Fat Article http://www.livestrong.com/article/557726-eat-fat-to-burn-fat/)
Focus on how YOUR body feels
Be OK with enjoying yourself in MODERATION
Don’t workout on a bad or skimpy diet (change wording) your body needs nutrients to perform well and have energy without wearing out
Recognize that you can’t eat whatever you want just because you work out.
Prepare snacks ahead of time- no use trying to decide what to eat while you are hangry
Don’t focus on the number on the scale
Focus on Nutrition, not on ‘diet’
Think About How You Will Feel Later
Remember to actually enjoy the journey and enjoy your food. “A good diet should remove stress from your life, not increase it.”
