Healthy Tips for a Busy Lifestyle

One Month Down

Hey Guys!  Guess what!  Last week I won the weekly wellness challenge at work!  I got a new foam roller as my prize!   I was really excited!  I ended up with 81 points for the week!  This week’s challenge was still physical activity and the bonus points were still for getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night.  But, there was a new bonus challenge added.  You could earn 5 points for drinking 16oz of water first thing in the morning.  This one was a little challenging for me.  I usually drink water as soon as I wake up, but never that much.  But, I did it each day! more “One Month Down”

5 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m sharing five healthy ways that you can start your day.  I’m not a morning person at all! Anyone that has ever known me knows that.  Stay out of my way in the morning!  But, I am trying to be a morning person, and I do follow the same routine each morning.  I have been bad about hitting snooze and staying in bed until I just absolutely have to get up.  And that throws off my whole day.  I’m running late, sometimes having to skip breakfast, and then trying to start my day when I’m all out of sorts!  But, the last several months I have been trying to start my day better.  Your morning sets the tone for the whole day.  Here are some healthy ways that you can start your day off with that will leave you feeling energized and ready to tackle your day!   more “5 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day”

5 Ways to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Hey Guys!  How are you today?  How have you been sleeping?  I want to share some tips on how to get a good night’s sleep!  I’ve been researching this because my new Fitbit tells me how much I sleep – or really how much I don’t sleep.  I am the worst sleeper!  I am a total night owl, but I also have to be up early in the mornings.  Since I got my new Fitbit, it shows that I had been averaging around 5 hours a night.  That’s not enough sleep for anyone!  And most nights it’s 5 hours with two or three times awake and 15-20 times restless.  That makes it really hard to get up in the mornings and get going.  more “5 Ways to Get a Good Night’s Sleep”

The Word of the Week is Consistency

Hey Guys!  This is going to be a long recap, because it was a very busy week!  This week was all about being consistent!  This was my third week of marathon training, and I rocked it!  I hope I can keep this up throughout all of the training.  (15 more weeks!)  Since my second week didn’t go according to plan, I wanted to make sure that I worked hard this week.  I pushed myself hard in my workouts, but I also made sure to stretch a lot more, and get a lot of rest so my body could recover.  I really enjoyed my runs and workouts this week!  I felt stronger!    Later on when the training gets really hard, I’ll have to look back and remember how much fun I had this week! more “The Word of the Week is Consistency”

Meal Prep Ideas Edition 1

Hey Everyone!  I decided that this month I was going to start sharing my weekly meal prep with you.  I started meal prepping a couple of years ago because I got in a bad habit of eating out every day at lunch.  It was easy to run with a co-worker to a fast food restaurant and grab a quick lunch.  But, that was not healthy at all!  I started meal prepping as a way to have a healthy lunch and to save money.  I get a lot of questions about what I eat and how I prep it for the whole week so I decided to start a series and share with you what I do each week.  more “Meal Prep Ideas Edition 1”

How to Make Healthy Choices When Eating Out

Hey Everyone!  Today I want to share some tips with you on how to eat healthy when you eat out.  I love eating at home because I know exactly what I’m fixing.  But, I also enjoy eating out and not having to cook or clean!  When I first started eating healthy, I used to get completely stressed out when going out to eat.  I would avoid it as much as I could.  I would decline invitations from friends and make excuses as I why I couldn’t meet for lunch because I didn’t want to break my routine of healthy eating.  I would think that I’ve been eating so good, I don’t want to go out and blow it on a three course meal.  Thankfully, I finally realized that you can eat out and eat healthy too.  Lots of restaurants offer low calorie or healthy entrée options.  You just have to know what to order.  more “How to Make Healthy Choices When Eating Out”
