Challenge Yourself

Everyone pretty much lives off of the mantra, new year, new me. I'm trying to stick to this saying and really give myself a little makeover. Starting on Tuesday {when I go back to school} I'm getting into a fitness routine and I'm determined to stick to it. Over winter break it's been super hard being fit and eating healthy, but I'm set on changing my ways once school starts again. I'm starting myself off with a small challenge and hopefully working my way up to bigger challenges and then an entirely healthy lifestyle. Starting Tuesday and lasting for 24 days, until the end of the month, and I'm on a strictly healthy diet. I wouldn't call it "dieting" because I'm not restricting what I eat, but I'm just trying to eat healthy. The rules of my new healthy lifestyle include ::

-drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day {and always bringing a water bottle to school}

-no junk food - this means cookies, cakes, candy, soda, etc.

-working out 6 days a week {I have practice every day and this counts as a workout, so the only other day is Saturday and I can just hit up the gym for some yoga (stress relief) or do a workout class}

-doing this workout routine before every shower--such a simple way to make a big difference in your health

-adding tons more fruits & veggies into my diet to keep my energy and health up

-skipping the fast food whenever possible {obviously sometimes this is a little unrealistic, but avoiding fast food (even Panera and Noodles & Company) is so beneficial to your health and it saves you a ton of money}

I think the main reason I'm a little nervous for this new health crave I'm on is that I'm not going to have enough to eat. My house isn't filled with a ton of super unhealthy foods, but then again it's not stocked full of super healthy foods either. I'm definitely going to see if my mom will let me do a little grocery shopping and find some healthy things to have in the house so that my new "diet" has me fueled on the right food.

A few ideas of foods are included in these videos and pins.




One of my favorite healthy eating YouTubers is BreeLovesBeauty. She is such a great inspiration and she gives so many great ideas for healthy meals and snacks! Definitely check out her channel right here! I posted the two videos that I recently watched of her that have fully inspired me to start living a healthy life.

I hope that this post has inspired you to try living a healthy life with me! Wish me luck and I'll definitely keep you updated!

XOXO, Kate
