6/29/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 30. June 2012 09:23

Hi everyone,


As my blog begins and evolves, I’d like to share a mix of my everyday menu’s, workouts and a 'theme' for the day.  Today’s topic is about commitment (might as well start with a big one).  The commitment I’m addressing is the commitment you make to eating clean (preparing and eating unprocessed foods) and to doing a workout of some kind most everyday (then it becomes habit).


You might say "but, I work fulltime", or "the kids are off school", or "I’m just too tired".  Here are some questions you might want to ask yourself:  "Is making a commitment to my job, my spouse, my kids and my friends more important than me?"  Why am I on the bottom of this list?  Do you want more energy (for all the before mentioned reasons)?  Do you want better long term health? 


If so, then making a commitment to you, to your eating and exercise, should be a top priority!  We will pursue many ideas in future blogs about positive eating choices, and different directions for workout ideas.


Start with baby steps and let’s try them together.
