Healthy Living Is About Consistency. #NuffSaid
Yes, I post a picture of my #FRIDGEGOALS almost every week, NOT TO ANNOY YOU GUYS, but to show you that healthy living is about CONSISTENCY. It really is key!
In the same way that working out for a week won’t make you look like a bodybuilder, taking supplements for 2 weeks won’t solve all your digestive issues, seeking therapy once won’t give you full mental stability, eating clean & healthy for a week or two won’t change your life.
What will? Cultivating healthy lifestyle habits OVERTIME & remaining committed to them.
- You don’t have to stock your fridge with every healthy ingredient in the world in one shot (you’d probably go broke).
- You don’t have to buy all your produce organicl.
- You don’t have to eat clean every single waking minute of every single day.
But you do have to take baby steps towards realistic short-term goals if you want to see true change, live it & look back in a week, month, 6 months & year & see PROGRESS.
It’s no secret that living a healthy lifestyle is freaking HARD. I don’t believe in long-term goals because I find they’re often unrealistic & unattainable & that they set us up for failure & disappointment when we realize how unreal they are.
I like short-term goals that are doable, realistic & buildable towards a LIFESTYLE, not a goal that’s set in stone & perfectly defined. My version of a healthy lifestyle may not be the same as yours & there’s nothing wrong with that. What matters isn’t how you define it but rather, how you feel as you begin to live it.
This week, I encourage you to make 1-2 changes that will ultimately help you build your way up to living healthier. It can be anything from swapping your filtered apple cider vinegar for raw, organic, unfiltered & unpasteurized vinegar, switching Greek yogurt to grass-fed, reading ingredients on the box of bars you’re about to purchase, buying a cleaner option or making your own, meal prepping protein + grains, making your own nut milk, eating regularly throughout the day to prevent binging, buying more greens than usual, incorporating a new vitamin into your routine or swapping your white bread for sprouted!
TAKE IT SLOW. YOU GOT THIS!
