Back at blogging!
Exercise and healthy eating habits have become something that I have made part of my life, with a healthy mindset as well. Although I am not perfect I always am mindful of eating wholesome meals and being active.
What works for me
As far as exercise, 30 minute workouts are my preferred max time. I can’t work out more than that, and honestly there is just too much going on in the day. As a mom of 2 kids who need attention constantly and I feel bad when I am not giving them the attention they need. With a 30 minute workout I can do it early in the morning before they wake up so I don’t feel guilty and it starts up my day.
When it comes to eating I don’t like restricting myself of anything specific. I have tried all the types of “diets” out there – vegan, vegetarian, and paleo. I would like to think that I eat a combination of all of those, and indulge in sweets that have ingredients I can pronounce. I’m not perfect though!
I believe it’s important to remember that being mindful is what matters. Don’t be so hard on yourself and make it simple!
What I am doing this week:
Keeping at this 21 Day Fix workout and determined to finish the 21 days! Thinking about my next workout program after I finish this one up. I realize that I like variety so it has to encompass lifting weights, cardio and yoga!
As far as food this week we are keeping it simple and I’m cooking. I’ve thought about themed food days like Taco Tuesday and stuff to make it easier to plan out the week. I need to be better at eating more veggies, too.
Goals for the long run:
Having a running list of healthy recipes we can rotate every week. I tend to gravitate towards quick cooking meals, so it’s definitely a process! I should probably organize it on Pinterest or something!
Get rid of my puffy belly! I am determined to have a flatter tummy and would love to see some ab definition!
Those are the big 2 goals I have for now, but I’m sure more will come up.
