Today I am switching gears a bit. I learned at a young age about health & fitness. I always search for ways to be healthy and stay fit. For approximately 7 years I went vegetarian along with my family ( I am no longer a vegetarian ). We found ways to get our protein other than meat. My family stayed active together riding bikes, taking family walks, and playing a variety of sports. Then I went off to college. I struggled to find ways to keep healthy when the cafeteria was limited and the only thing to keep me awake at night to study was various sugars. Being on my own helped me realize the things that I could do personally to stay healthy while still maintaining my busy lifestyle. Now I am a wife, I have a full time job, full time fashion blogger, plus producing our local fashion week, and still trying to stay healthy and active. So for those who have a tight and busy schedule I am sharing some of my favorite ways to stay healthy starting with the inside of my body.
– Portion control. I get asked all the time about my diet ( not sure why ) but I believe that it has to do with portion control. Eating appropriate portions so you can have everything you love! Want cake? Just eat a smaller portion of it!
-Eat balanced. Your body NEEDS the good stuff like vitamins & minerals,water,protein and yummy greens! Can’t get it all in? Take a daily multi-vitamin to help out! Your body produces more efficiently with appropriate goodness!
-Get active. I know what it’s like to get busy and not have time to do a full exercise routine. Some of my favorite things to do are yoga,walk or play with my dog, have a solo dance party, squats, & crunches. I rarely if ever have enough time to stop for a total of 30 minutes ( sad yes I know ) but I do like to take a couple moments to stop, breathe, and do a couple exercises. Seriously…sometimes those couple moments come when I am at work and heating up my food, those 2 minutes = squats or jumping jacks!
