It is that time of year again! Most stores have great deals on activewear, the gym is packed, Pinterest randomly suggest new healthy recipes, the list is endless. I guess I have fully hopped on the bandwagon this year. While I have told myself I’ll try to live a healthier lifestyle in the past, this is the first time I have began to make progress with it. For starters, I frequent the gym and do at-home exercises nearly everyday. As a full time student, I don’t always have the time to go to the gym so I tend to go on Pinterest and find simple home workouts that range from 10-20 minutes. For me personally, being active is the best and most effective stress reliever so I usually workout in the evenings after a long day of school. Living a healthier lifestyle goes beyond working out so I have also began to change what I eat. This is difficult because I am quite the picky eater; this is silly to admit but I have just recently learned to enjoy the taste of salad and some fruits. I have to take baby steps with the meal plan so I am targeting each meal time separately. For example, breakfast has been changed from the usual bagel with cream cheese to apple slices and peanut butter.
