Tomorrow is MARCH!?
Where the hell did that come from?
If you’ve been following on snapchat you already know about my March plan.
If not, get on there and follow because it’s going to be fun with you guys joining me.
Motivation is KEY.
Anyway, I’m kicking myself back into gear – no more BS.
Remember the phobia and anxiety journey post? I’ve been slacking on my eating habits with everything going on lately.
SO March – I’m coming in HOT.
And I’m dragging you guys along! HOW FUN!?
( That bar area pictured above will be replaced with dried fruits this week – huge sigh. )
I wish that I was ALWAYS ready for bikini season and didn’t slack on my workouts or health tips, buuuut sometimes life gets in the way and that’s that.
So, here we are. What can you do, right?
+ BETTER EATING HABITS ( I make better replacements, I never ‘diet’ – like using Ezekiel bread instead of a bun on my veggie burger. Simple. )
+ MAKE MORE MEALS & SNACKS WITH MY FAVORITE DE-BLOATING FOODS
+ MORE SMOOTHIES ( I’m on a smoothie kick right now – super yummy and packed with so much goodness. Sign up for the newsletter to get extra recipes! )
+ KICK MY BOOTY BACK INTO SHAPE WITH INTERVALS, QUICK WORKOUTS, CLASSES, ETC.
Basically, I’m rebooting myself.
I can feel my energy levels dropping just from being off with my eating habits and not working out as much as I have been in the past.
Have you guys ever noticed that? I can’t believe how much my body/mind changes when I start to let go of my routine a little bit.
My anxiety has been way worse.. that’s when I knew it was time to start getting my ass back into my normal routine.
I’ll be posting about this all month long – quick recipes, smoothies I’m loving, workouts I’m doing, and of course – tips & tricks that are helping me.
And I’m super excited because the motivation you guys give is awesome – it totally helps when you’re ‘in it together’, right?
ALMOST BIKINI SEASON, YOU GUYS. ( what. )
Also – about the ‘I don’t diet’ spiel I give – I legit don’t do diets.
I never found it good for me to count calories or eliminate foods completely because I would just hardcore binge on my cheat days and get back off track again.
It almost made me crazy ( lol ). Like, all I would think about is what I couldn’t eat. It made it that much harder to eat healthy because I was so focused on ‘what I couldn’t have’ and how badly I wanted it.
Instead, I do replacements and just portion control, really.
I still eat bread, I still don’t count calories, I still please my sweet tooth here and there. I just do it.. smarter.
+ INCREASE YOUR DAILY WATER INTAKE
+ ADD APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TO YOUR MORNING DRINK
+ SLOW DOWN WHEN YOU EAT!
+ WATCH YOUR FIBER INTAKE, TOO MUCH CAN CAUSE BLOATING
+ POTASSIUM – GET IT IN YOU. IT CLEARS OUT SODIUM & FLUSHES YOU OUT
TIP: make sure you get apple cider vinegar with ‘the mother’ – it just means it still contains the beneficial bacteria. & for potassium, I drink coconut water or add it to my smoothies. It’s a really easy way to get potassium in you!
Super excited to feel the difference and get myself back into the swing of things.
Chat later this week with some more tips!
