Creating a Healthier Lifestyle


wellness update 1

If you read the post about 30 being my number for the year {click HERE if you didn’t get a chance yet!} then you know I am on a mission to create a much healthier lifestyle. Yeah, I’ll be the first to admit I enjoyed a couple margaritas at happy hour with my girlfriends this past week! #treatyoself But overall, I have been so mindful of every little thing I am putting in my mouth. And guess what? It’s WORKING! Creating a healthier lifestyle, in my opinion, is all about taking it step-by-step. Little-by-little. Don’t drive yourself crazy and do what works for you! Making small changes and sticking with them really can lead to big results! The main things I’ve been focusing on: drastically cutting back my sugar intake and putting a big focus on drinking lots of water all day. I’ve also been hitting the gym 3-4 days a week which has seriously made me feel like a new person!  Simple enough right? Well, when you are used to “treating” yourself daily with something sweet and drinking double the coffee & soda compared to your water intake, it’s tough! It’s tough but it’s DOABLE. And it’s so motivating once you actually start seeing & feeling changes in such a short amount of time. I am down 5 lbs {woo hoo! 25 to go and I’m ready!} but honestly, the even more exciting part is how I feel. I cannot believe what a few little tweaks to my mindset, motivation, and mindful eating have done to my overall attitude these past couple of weeks. I’m not a doctor, I’m not a dietitian, but I am a girl on a mission {like a lot of you!} to FEEL GOOD and get healthy! Start with one or two little changes to your lifestyle. It’s not going to be easy if you want it to work, but you will be so proud of yourself when you make those changes, stick with them, and prove to yourself that you are WORTH it. More updates to come but in the meantime, quoting my favorite little cashier I see weekly at Walgreens… “Stay well my friend!”
