Three Choices I Make To Be Healthy

Happy Weekend!

Ahhh.  Weekend. #cat #meme

I’m so glad the weekend is here and I’m ready to enjoy it…Here’s some tips I follow by to keep myself healthy over the weekend, because, well you know, we tend to let loose a little on the weekends (AKA eat crap and forget to plan to exercise).

Now these tips are my own personal tips I use for myself to stay healthy. I am in no way saying you should do what I do.

Listen to your body, be authentic, and make healthy choices that fit your lifestyle!

Healthy Choices

Plans for the weekend include:

  • Eat Healthy
  • Run a long run b/w 7-10 miles
  • Have a Leg Day
  • Watch Spiderman 2
  • Journal
  • Coaching Call with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
  • Study for school and finish up Module 11
  • Make Peanutbutter Chocolate Chip Blondies with the 2 ripe plantains I have
  • CLEAN

Have a Happy & Healthy Weekend and make sure to drink plenty of water in this heat!

Questions:

  • Do you eat your greens? What’s your favorite green vegetable?
  • Do you keep junk in your house?
  • Do you plan your workouts ahead of time like me?

Do You Juice? Here’s My Favorite Recipe!

Hi guys!

So, if you don’t already know…I love juicing! I’ve been making sure I juice at least 2-4 times a week and I definitely feel that energy boost I need for the day. But, I usually buy the same produce every week, so here’s my go-to juice recipe and its definitely one recipe you will want to make! Plus, it’s colorful and makes a beautiful picture Smile
