Is your health plan making the cut?

tips and tricks Dec 02, 2021

Have you ever quit before you even started?

What I mean by this is that you decided today is the day to live a healthier lifestyle. So what you do is create a plan.

Something like:

- Meal prep 7 new recipes for the week.

-Workout every day.

-Drink a gallon of water a day.

Monday comes and you are so overwhelmed. You end up saying f it, and pick up fast food on your way home because that Pinterest meal didn't cut it at lunch.

You know what I am talking about!

I get it because that's is the "standard method".

I am here to tell you that is WRONG! You CAN achieve a healthier lifestyle WITHOUT the overwhelming feeling.

Let's make this plan above more manageable and achievable.

STEP 1

Instead of learning 7 new recipes, make your favorite recipes a little healthier. For example, cook your famous pasta bake but swap out a couple of ingredients. Swap your normal pasta for Banza pasta. I am a HUGE fan when it comes to Banza because not only is it made from chickpeas, but you cannot taste the difference. Half the amount of cheese. You aren't taking it completely away, but you are reducing the amount of fat. You would be surprised how big of a difference this makes as far as macros.

STEP 2

Being healthy does not mean working out every day! It does not mean doing an hour of cardio! (I don't even do that. Honestly, I hate cardio!)

When starting out, choose a workout regimen that works for you.

Here are a couple of questions to ask yourself: What types of activities do you like?

This can be anything from walking to swimming, or even dancing! How long can you really work out? If you have a toddler who naps for 30 minutes, that's the time you have to work out! Don't put the pressure of an hour's workout on your plate.

STEP 3

How much water do you drink currently?

If you are drinking 24 ounces a day, drinking a gallon is not a realistic goal right now.

Create mini-goals that lead to the bigger goal.

For example, if you are drinking 24 ounces in a day, aim to add 8 more ounces. Once you accomplish this, work on adding more. Try this plan for one week.

Reassess by asking yourself these questions...

-What worked? What didn't work?

-How can I adjust what didn't work?

Let me know if this helps!
