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!

But with the heat comes this overwhelming desire (for me, at least) to not do anything that requires me to sweat even more than the sun is already allowing. There have definitely been countless days after work where I end up in my bed with a jar of peanut butter, container of Double Stuffed Oreos, and Broad City re-runs instead of working out like I said I was going to.

Buuut that’s neither here nor there 😊 I’ve noticed that I just needed a little extra PUSH to get me back on my healthy lifestyle journey. I’ve read countless blogs and articles about being healthier overall and have come to the consensus that everyone’s journey is going to be different. So here are a few things that I’ve found get me motivated, even when eating a whole bag of Starburst Jellybeans seems life a better decision at the moment.
