If you are like me, you are working non stop to pursue your goals and dreams. As you may know from reading my previous posts you know that I am building my brand and helping others. On top of that I work a full time job in marketing.

 

In the past when it came to my health I let myself go. I would sit in the office, commute, go home and sit on the couch. I would wake up the next day and do it all over again. I forgot to focus on me and my wellbeing. At one point I stopped working out and  I would

eat whatever was around me because it was free and sitting there. I would also buy snacks or I would go out to eat because I wanted to be social. I wouldn’t care what I ordering because I was enjoying time with my friends. I got to the point where I was so focused on my job, finances, and my social life where I didn’t care what I ate and I got lazy. I knew that I had to change, I couldn’t continue living this way.

 

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I made some changes. I joined a local community that encouraged a healthy active lifestyle and I was able to change. I have learned over the years that not only will you look better when you eat healthy but you will feel better. When you eat better your energy will come back, and in some cases you can save money!
 
Here are a few tips that I use to stay healthy:

Get Moving

 

Even if it is a quick 20 minute walk on your lunch or an hour long gym session after work, make sure you take time to move. My co-workers even take a lap around the suite or the halls on the hour every day. When people around you have the same goals, it makes it easier to get yourself moving.

 

 

Eat Throughout the Day
 
I don’t mean snack on whatever you want throughout the day, stay conscious about what you are eating. I make sure that my day consists of breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, and a a snack if you are up late. I also make sure that the meals and snacks are healthy and balanced. This way they keep me going and won’t make me crash or put me in a food coma.
 
Meal Prep
 

When I started to focus on living a healthy active lifestyle, I started to meal prep on the weekends for the week. I would make enough food to last until Friday. I am not goingto lie, the busier I have been the lazier I have been. I started to forget to prep or do other things instead, then I would buy my food at work. I noticed a few things start to happen over time. I started to over spend, eat whatever looked good that day, and my small meals throughout the day fell apart. I noticed myself getting tired, bloated, and broke. I knew things had to change.

 

 

Luckily, I discovered this amazing company called Model Meals. They have locations in both Southern and Northern California. Model Meals has been such an amazing partner. This past week I have noticed my energy go up and my waist get smaller. I have been more productive because I am not stressing over food. The best part is I get a new meal every day so I don’t have to worry about getting bored after a few days of the same thing!
