I shared last week how I was starting my own #30daymommybootcamp.
I wanted to feel healthier, make smarter meal decisions
and set better examples for my kids!
I am not a health nut! I’m not like ooo yayy flax seed woohoo! haha.
BUT I realized that I was letting my busy schedule take over my eating habits.
I was turning to soda or the leftover christmas candy stash to give me that boost
I needed to wrangle my 3 kids and stay on top of my business and blog!
I didn’t want to feel dependent on them..and I’m super stubborn.
So I kicked soda and sweets to the curb for the past week
(besides my birthday cake ;)
I’m living by the 90/10 rule..
90 percent of the time I am going to choose healthy options.
water over soda… not having the cookie over taking one.
I will not feel guilty over eating a sweet treat at a party or having a soda on a date night…
But I want to have it be the special treat and not the every day routine.
Does that make sense?
It wasn’t until I had this in the forefront of my mind that I realized how often I
would let myself drive through the drive thru for quick lunch options…
or join in the bribery cookies with my oh so well behaved children….
I feel very proud of myself and happy to say the scale is going down
and the energy is going up!
We are doing more whole wheat and fruits and vegetables.
We are giving up red meat and only having chicken occasionally.
Ben has been vegetarian since we started, but I’m happy to still have
chicken in our diet but be vegetable focused!
I’m a big snacker so having healthy snack options in the house is a must.
I’m going to be sharing the recipes and grocery list that I’m using as I jump into this!
Check back for that post with the free download!
If you are looking for super health nut meal plans..
go somewhere else.
You aren’t gonna find soy or wheat germ anything here.
Seriously though I would need to google “really healthy stuff” to
find out anything else to put there. haha.
I’m going to share easy approachable healthy food options.
My girls have been SO INTO IT! They do this song and dance about eating
healthy foods and growing strong and healthy… It is awesome.
And they notice that mommy is serving them LOTS of fresh vegetables and fruits
and less treats. They still get treats…she took a fruit snack to school yesterday
because we still had them in the house…live it up girl.. but when you get home for
dinner it’s whole wheat pizza covered in fresh veggies that you are going to help me
wash and get ready! It’s the balance that I want my kids to see!
We will bake cookies together…but we won’t eat all of them…
we will package them up and do a special delivery of treats to friends or neighbors!
Not only am I trying to make healthy food choices for our family…
But I’m scheduling in time at the gym or working out at home.
I reactivated my gym membership and now go in and run 3.5 miles while watching downtown abby.
I kinda get into the zone and just go when I put on a show!
Sometimes it’s easier to do a work out at home..go to you tube people!
I have been using Fitness Blender’s videos and they are AWESOME.
The guy’s voice is calming..and the girl seems nice and friendly.
It kicks my butt..but something I can DEFINITELY do, even if we get snowed in.
If you want to follow a long on how I’m living this…
