How To Transition And Stick To Healthy Habits

One of the main focuses of this blog is to document my transition to a healthier lifestyle, and how you can, too. So, every now and then I've made sure to highlight my goals of trying to eat healthier and how I've attempted to lead a healthier lifestyle overall.

As of late, I haven't mentioned it much because I've felt like I took two steps forward and five giant steps back. A few months ago, I had successfully weaned myself off soda, stopped eating candy, and was slowly but surely drinking more water every day. I had my meal planning and prepping down to a science and I felt awesome both physically and mentally.

Fast forward to today, and I'm back to drinking soda whenever I get the chance (i.e. whenever it's free), have fallen behind in my Sunday meal prep (but I'm working on it), and I'm 90% sure these headaches I keep getting after practice are due to dehydration (oops). All in all, I haven't gone back to square one, but I'm not where I want to be with my goals. All this means I'm going to start over in getting back into those great habits I was so proud of. So, today I'm sharing with you just how I transition and stick to healthy habits all in 2 easy steps!

BRAZZAVILLE WEEK TWO & THE END OF MY OUTDOOR SEASON

My last week at the All-African Games sped by much faster than the first one.  Once Sunday hit, I barely had time to look for WiFi or watch any other event that wasn't happening at the track.  

The 100 preliminaries and semi-finals were scheduled to be on the first day - the first round early in the morning and the second later in the evening.  This was the first day that the temperature outside actually reached a point where I could positively say it was hot.  Even the ever-present fog lifted that day, and left the sun beating down on us during warm-ups.
