This post is a guide about beginning your health journey.
I'll admit I have a tiny problem with eating Chickfila. It's delicious, and I could eat it every day if I could. However, I guess you could say it's not the healthiest route to start fresh.
As I mentioned in my resolution post, my goal isn't to get "thinner" it's to be healthier and happier with myself physically and mentally.
I hate feeling like crap all the time coming from class out of breath and just feeling like I'm going to die any second. So I came up with a fitness and health plan to help me reach my goal of health.
I know everyone has different fitness and health goals. This post is to give you some ideas of what I'm doing that is keeping me motivated and committed. (I am not a nutritionist this is what works for me)
NUMBER ONE, OF COURSE, IS EAT A HEALTHIER DIET
Eat A Good Breakfast. I know it's a tale as old as time(...see what I did there haha ) but having a good breakfast will fill you up with carbs, which will provide a good amount of energy to start the day.
- Yogurt with fruit and granola
- Boiled Eggs
- Smoothie add some fruits and veggies.
Eat TONS of Veggies. Vegetables tend to make me full and keeps me feeling energized for the rest of the day. So I can avoid my late night cravings after a long night of studying.
Drink Water. Drinking around 64 ounces of water a day is a great way to keep things moving in the digestive system to help process your food intake.
Fitbit. I am a huge fan of Fitbit products. It keeps track of heart rate, meals, how much I drank, steps, and numerous other benefits to keep track of your health journey.
I'm not saying to go run out and get one because it's a bit expensive depending on what version you get. However, overall I give the product an A++.
MyFitnessPal. There are free resources like MyFitnessPal that provides the benefit of tracking meals and water intake. This is what I used once before I decided to invest in Fitbit.
Campus Resources. Take advantage of the school resources. You are paying for it might as well use it. My college provides workout classes and personal trainors that I utilize.
Walk. I'm guilty of taking my car to class sometimes. But it's very beneficial in the long run if you start walking around campus more often.
Motivating Workout Playlist. I love listening to music while I workout, I lose track of time which makes the workout 10x faster. I know Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora all have specific workout playlists for all times of workouts which I highly recommend
