healthier and watch my weight. There are
many things out there that taste so delicious but unfortunately are extremely
bad for you. For today’s Healthy Habits
I wanted to share with all of you a few substitutions in your daily life that
have been working for me.
Water instead of Sweet Drinks
but it’s been processed, filtered, and bleached, or whatever it is that they do
to it. If I really want sugar I’ll go
for a dark or organic sugar, but if I’m just looking to sweeten something up I’ll
use agave (not pictured above) or honey. These are closer to
organic/natural than white sugar, plus I love the taste.
cream, but that’s not what your gut (your actual gut not the expression) is
saying. Sour cream is jam packed with
calories and even though it’s absolutely delicious I have found something that
you can substitute it with! I normally
use greek yogurt or regular plain yogurt.
I almost never buy flavored yogurt (not even vanilla) because as I said
above I can sweeten it with my own ingredients.
cream in this heat. I saw one of my
coworkers eating what looked like ice cream in the morning (which was 8:30) so
I asked them why and they actually told me it was frozen Greek yogurt. I thought this was perfect! All you do is take plain Greek yogurt, add
some agave and fruits and voila you have your own personal ice cream!
so over doing it makes you cripple, stop being lazy. If there’s an option of taking the stairs,
don’t get on that elevator unless it’s an insane amount of floors. Park far away. When you go to the mall instead of circling
around for 15 minutes trying to find a spot and wasting time park far away and
walk the extra steps. This can also save
your car because you’re parking away from other cars and no kids can “accidentally”
open their door too wide and smash a lovely scratch/dent in your door. During lunch if you have the option of
walking, try it! Instead of staying
inside and eating then sitting on the computer, go outside. Isn’t that what we all loved doing when we
were younger? We couldn’t wait to go
but these are the things that work for me.
It’s the little things that I have learned along my fitness journey that
have helped. So far I’m two pounds away
from my pre vacation weight and I couldn’t be happier! When you see those numbers falling
drastically on the scale it makes you feel so good. It’s even better when your clothes start
fitting differently. I forgot what the
exact numbers are but I think it’s something along the lines of 5 lbs is when
you notice and 10 lbs is when everyone else notices, I’m probably wrong but
everyone has started noticing the weight loss.
It makes you feel really good when people ask/say “oh my gosh, have you
lost weight? You look great!”
