So you go all out for a week and then just feel defeated and overwhelmed.
But I bring good news! Being healthy doesn’t have to be hard. In fact it can be really, really simple.

OK now I want to hear from YOU- What did you eat this morning? Let me know in the comments below!
In Health and Happiness,
“I should start eating healthier”
“I should give up junk food for lent!”
Sound familiar to any of you? You know you should, you want to… but it just doesn’t happen, or stick at least.
I call it “shoulding all over yourself”. Unfortunately, that won’t get you anywhere- you have to take action! I totally get it, because I’ve been there! I say adios to junk food.. then I’m rushing, frantically opening my fridge 10x waiting for something healthy to appear, give up, and cave for a bagel or some other junk from campus… Repeat vicious cycle.
I was ALWAYS snacking, so I was never hungry enough for that healthy meal, but could def fit in another round of chips y salsa. I realized how time consuming it is to snack all day- not to mention expensive, unhealthy, high-cal & unsatisfying. I would have all these grand recipes and spend copious amounts time beefing up my Pinterest “Yummy” board (it’s linked so feel free to browse!), but my plans to eat healthy would get sabotaged by snacks, pizza out of depravation, and my ultimate downfall… late night ravaging.
BUT THEN…I had a light-bulb moment that changed everything
revisiting this gem from last year, man did I need this!
Religious or not, this is THE perfect time to take advantage of what this time can do for you
At some point in the near future (fingers crossed for all my northeast people out there) nature is going to start transforming, out with the old snow, cold, white, and gray, and in with the new warm, blossoming, colorful and green of spring! These aren’t just adjectives for nature, but for you too! You have something inside of you, that’s just waiting for a change, a shift to allow it to blossom! Make that change! What is keeping you from blossoming? What are your addictions? What do you depend on? Please put some thought into this. It doesn’t have to just be “I’m going to give up taco bell” or “chocolate”. There’s so much more to consider, like negative thoughts, not forgiving people, and complaining.

There’s nothing sweet about what sugar does to your body.
And I’m talking all forms! Corn syrup, brown sugar, soda, cookies, but even bread, bagels, fruit juice, crackers, flavored yogurt, and store-bought tomato sauce too!
Sugar is hiding in 75% of packaged foods! I don’t blame the food industry, it makes you chemically addicted to buying their foods over and over again.
There’s no doubt about it, sugar is a toxin and is poison.
Here are 4 reasons to DITCH sugar now!
