lately i’ve been thinking i need a fresh start. this mostly applies to my health and eating habits. eating more fresh fruits and veggies and whole grains is my main priority. so, i’ve been exploring different ways to do so. i went to whole foods for the first time this week. i was a little overwhelmed with the massive store. i didn’t know where to start! i just wandered around, picking up things that seemed like a “good deal” (i might have been overwhelmed with sticker shock) or looked appealing. it was fun! i realized one of the reasons i don’t eat as many fruits and veggies is because they aren’t convenient to snack on. oftentimes it takes awhile to “prepare” them. so i decided that i would start buying a bunch of fruits and veggies and spending the afternoon preparing them so they would be “ready to eat.” i’ve also always wanted one of those really organized refrigerators with tupperware and labels. so i decided to combine the two efforts and here is what i got:
lets see how long it lasts! haha. in other news…. Chris and I are also going to be joining a gym again! Hooray for getting fit! I feel like we are making “new years resolutions” in October. hopefully they will last longer than normal resolutions and hopefully we will see some pretty stellar results. i think to make it work i will have to wake up early and go to the gym, but i’m ok with that… well so far… i’ll let you know how it goes my first morning of actually doing it goes. here’s to fresh starts!
does anyone out there have any healthy eating/exercise tips to share? i could use any help i can get!!

Cutting out all sugars helps your body to “re-adjust” with cravings. I also found that drinking organic (Bragg) apple cider vinegar helps to adjust your PH levels in your body which can help with cravings. You’re on the right track with the ready-to-eat healthy options. Break a sweat for at least 30 mins, 5 days a week. Alternate days of cardio and days of strength training (which will build your muscle and help burn fat and calories even when you’re resting) followed by some lean protein to help your muscles recover. Keep up eating healthy and finding ways to ENJOY it! You’re on the right track!!
