How You Stay Motivated!
Okay, it's time to start a new discussion to inspire and support one another. What I want to know is:
How do you stay motivated when trying to make dietary and lifestyle changes?
Here's one from me:
I make healthy eating the easy (or only) choice! To do this, I:
- Make sure fresh vegetables are always washed and prepped in my fridge (which I pair with my favorite hummus)
- I don't bring foods into my house that I find it difficult to portion control (hello coconut ice cream)**
- I make sure I have a lunch, snacks, + some extras for those long workdays or when I want to go to the gym after work
- I never leave the house without my water bottle (seriously, I even take it into restaurants despite my husband's embarrassment!)
** Just because I don't bring it in the house doesn't mean I don't eat it. I'm just MINDFUL about having an indulgence. Ever 2-3 weeks, I go for a date with my husband or friends and get a huge cone, guilt-free.
Let me know yours!
