Well it's May and I'm extremely excited.
I'll be done with the Spring 2014 semester this Tuesday and you bet I'm going to celebrate!
I'll also be getting my very first gym membership. I've been working out for nearly 4 years and I've never owned a membership. I've always worked out at the park, home, or the school gym.
Simon goes to Metroflex Gym in Fort Worth and I went there once as a guest....let me just tell ya right now that those men are some of the biggest and tallest men ever. Okay maybe the tallest part is a little biased because I only stand 5 foot 2. But still...
So I'll be training with Simon this summer and we'll be doing a ton of awesome workouts and I'm super excited about that! I really enjoyed my time there last time and I'm excited to be in an atmosphere such as this one. Plus, it's just more fun working out with someone else.
To celebrate May I wanted to give you a jumpstart into your nutrition goals! It's the perfect time of the year to rid your kitchen of the junk and replace it with healthy options!
Taking the first step towards change is hard.
Trust me, I know.
But luckily for you I have 5 super easy tips on how to spring clean your diet!
- Say goodbye to sodas (or sugary drinks): Can you imagine drinking 33 grams of sugar? Can you imagine eating 8 teaspoons of sugar? NO? Good! Because that's what's in your soda and if you're looking to wittle your waist then that sugar loaded drink will not do you any favors. Plus studies have shown that high fructose corn syrup, the primary ingredient in sodas, is extremely addictive. Hence why it's so hard to put that sugared beverage down. Find a way to limit your intake and when you can make the commitment, cut it out completely.
- Healthy Alternative:
- Black/Green Tea
- Coconut Water
- Fruit Infused Water/Coconut Water
That's all y'all. It's the smallest changes that lead to BIG RESULTS.
Remember, progress if never swift nor easy.
