Adventures in Healthy Living II9:30 AM
Last month I celebrated one month of living a more active and healthy lifestyle and this month I'm happy to report I'm still on track! Although there was a fast food stop or two along the way, I've been increasingly active. Here's what I've been doing to stay motivated & on track...
I find that purchasing a ton of veggies with the intention to eat healthy usually ends up with me not wanting said veggies and them wilting or rotting into oblivion in the back of the fridge. Instead I'll buy a bunch of baby spinach (easy to use in smoothies, salads, etc), and one or two other veggies. This week it was a bunch of asparagus and a potato which made easy additions to my week day meals.
I focus more on fruit because I know I always want to snack on fruit. A bag of clementines and a bag of pears from Trader Joe's typically won't last more than 4 days (Is it bad to eat like 6 clementines in a day?). I'll pick up a couple of apples plus a pound or so of whatever is on sale. Having healthy snacks and ingredients on hand is half the battle!
