ENCOURAGEMENT!

Have you ever had one of those weekends (weeks? months?) when your healthy lifestyle has gone out the window? You feel bloated. Your clothes don’t fit. Your energy is caput. And you are CRANKY.

How can you shake yourself out of the bad habits and back into healthy living?

Set those SMART Goals:

Weight goal – 5 pounds in 30 days? Doable.

Healthy eating goal – no cheese for 1 week? Doable.

Exercise days in a row goal – 30 minutes every other day? Doable. 30 minutes every day? Doable!

Reach your goal? Set new ones. Doable!

Grab a Partner in Health:

Having a friend or loved one working on their similar health goals as you will make it WAY EASIER to reach for the veggies, put on your sneakers, and join you at the gym. Hold each other accountable and reach those goals faster, stronger, and together.

Try something new:

Changing up your routine will make eating and exercising fun! Avoid exercise plateau by keeping your body guessing. *I highly recommend trying new exercises at studios or gyms where trained professionals can guide you safely.

Want to try being a pescatarian? Try it out! Want to see if those articles on dairy intolerance affect you? Try it out! Feeling sluggish and checking to see if gluten isn’t for you? Try it out!

Say Cheese:

Document your journey. In your favorite outfit, workout gear, bathing suit, take before pictures and weekly photos to SEE your commitment to yourself paying off. Now, I’m not saying you have to post your pictures for the social media world to see – if that’s your prerogative, go for it – but when you can literally see your transformation (brightening of your skin!) it can give you the motivation you need the get that workout in, maintain your healthy diet, and keep focused on your journey back to your optimal health.

BOOM.

Good luck getting back on track!

x, Ariana
