I’ve been battling my weight for what seems like a lifetime. This new year instead of making resolutions, I’ve decided to make small changes and completely change my lifestyle around. It also means being outside more, taking a walk whenever I can squeeze one in and getting more sleep. I’ve also decided to make sure I’m not skipping meals and meal planning for the week on Sunday. I’m making this year all about taking care of myself and keeping healthy.
One of the things that I’m doing is making sure to eat breakfast. I know that will ensure that I’m happier and more positive in 2015! I have to admit that before I decided to make this change, skipping breakfast was the norm for me and I would be famished by lunch. t’s hard for me to sit down for breakfast since I leave for work so early. To make sure that I eat breakfast, I make it to go. . Every morning I make a smoothie. It They are easy to make and keep me filled. Plus Milk Fuels a Better Future and ensures that I’m set for successful day!
This is my go to recipe :
- ¼ orange, peeled
- ½ cup frozen mango chunks
- ½ cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup milk.
- ½ teaspoon honey
- I also like to throw in a few strawberries
Blend until desired consistency.
It’s only two weeks but I’m already seeing a difference in how I feel. I think one of the biggest differences that I’ve noticed since I’ve implemented these new changes is just how full of energy I feel. Getting in a good night’s sleep has been life changing. If you’re planning on making changes to your lifestyle, I can’t stress enough how getting in some extra zzz’s can make a big difference!
One other thing that I’ve decided to do this is year to have a very happy and positive 2015 is to take myself out of my comfort zone and confront some of my fears. I don’t like heights and to take myself out of my comfort zone we made a trip two weeks ago to Zion National Park and Hoover Dam. It was a little nervous but … I had an incredible time and was wowed by the view/scenery. I had a great time and can’t wait to push myself to new limits this year.
