5 SIMPLE, HEALTHY TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED
FOOD IS FIRST!
Eating healthier shouldn’t be something you stress about. There’s actually some very simple things you can do to be successful at this!
Add more plants into your life, and WAY less processed, boxed foods.
How do you do that? Well, stick to the outer rim of the grocery store is one great way. And then allow yourself one small treat at night, and one cheat meal a week.
This method has been tried and true to not only help my clients lose weight, but also to not crave junk! Try it! I promise you’ll love it.
Consistently eating 80% healthy and 20% not so healthy will help you get the rockin’ body you want.
Get some rest. For when you wake, you will move mountains!
Sleep is totally underrated. Our bodies need it to recuperate, rebuild, and recharge. And no, your 5 hours of sleep after a crazy rushed day is NOT ENOUGH.
If your lifestyle has you running ragged, take a step back, de-stress, and rest. Nap, go to bed early, wake up late on the weekends. You won’t believe how much easier it is to heal yourself, how many less colds you’ll catch, and how much better you’ll feel! Sleep, princess, sleep!
Another point to make here is REST DAYS!
You don’t have to feel the need to workout 7 days a week! No one needs the adrenal fatigue, the muscle injury, the mental defeat that comes with overtraining.
Be sure to workout, move that body to healthy…and REST. I typically workout 3-5 times a week and I ALWAYS take 2 days of rest in which I may stretch or do gentle yoga in order to soothe my sore muscles.
Water yourself like you’re a plant!
Oh, I know you’ve heard this before. So why aren’t you already doing it??
Our bodies are made up of water (just like plants) and we need it to thrive and stay healthy.
It does wonders for your skin, your digestion, AND your energy.
So for the love of all things mermaid….put down that soda and immerse yourself in some water! (I recommend a gallon a day if you are working out!)
Move your beautiful, rockin’ body!
Pick a workout or a way to move your body that you’ll LOVE.
Is it yoga? Is it Zumba? Lifting weights? Is it jogging in the park with your kiddos?
Whatever it is, go out and find the workout that feels fun and that’s the one you will stick to.
You can mix it up, combine a few cool ones, but whatever you do…MOVE THAT BODY.
You want it to be a rockin’ body? You gotta move it.

Surround yourself with people like you!
Your mindset is the biggest part of creating new, healthy habits. It’s gotta start from the inside and the best way to feel that motivation, to get excited about this new healthy life you’re going to live, is to be around people with the same goals as you.

If you join a local gym or YMCA make sure you meet some familiar, like-minded people. Ask some of your FB friends to do this with you, or get a workout partner that will stick to it and help you stick to it as well. Nothing is better than having someone to rejoice the wins with, and help you figure out how to pick up after the rough spots.
