I just received a request to do a post on Clean Eating. And I have to admit, that I am really not qualified to do anything of the sort!
I usually try to keep the blog topics about fashion and home, but I am planning a wedding, you know, and so I am finding that most of the topics surrounding my life center around wedding things. That said, I have really been focusing on making lifestyle changes like:
-Working out with more frequently to get into the habit of doing it as much as possible
-Right now, I am doing a Bridal Bootcamp with a trainer and some other friends that are getting married on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays in the morning
-Light exercise 1 “off” weekday and 1 weekend day
-Currently, I am LOVING the Brazil Butt Lift videos. The ab one is my personal favorite 🙂
-Eating healthier (always organic, limit dairy, limit artificial sugars, more proteins and veggies, less starches)
-I would say that according to this chart, I do more of the “dirty” version, but I just think that every good choice is one less bad choice that I am making 🙂
Generally, I try to eat better during the week and on Sundays, but usually Saturdays is when I have the hardest time making healthier choices. Making these kinds of decisions is really important to me, because I want this lifestyle long-term. I want to get into healthy habits and eventually pass them along to my children. Hopefully, they will make healthy choices a lot easier than it is for me, since it’s a choice I need to make at every meal. That this isn’t to say I do this all of the time, but I usually just feel better about myself knowing that I treated my body well. And the results that I am getting are convincing too 🙂
There are SO many blogs out there that just focus on Clean Eating and healthy recipes, so I will let the pros do their thing and refer you to their sites!
