In the past two months, I have been working with a friend who is a personal trainer. She has helped me to see that life is about balancing healthy habits and good choices. Sure, everyone wants to go to the Mexican restaurant on Margarita Night to eat chips and have tasty treats. But does doing this every week fit into the goals that you have set for your life? Or would once a month give you the fun without losing sight of the goal of being healthier? The same goes with piling up on the couch after a hard day at work. I LOVE to come home, put my pajamas on, and settle in to read a hot romance. Turns out, that is one of the ways that I gained 20 pounds in three months. It is easy to do, but I am hoping for something different this year. Oh, I still get into those jammies a few nights a month but the other nights will find me at the gym for at least an hour. Do I succeed every day in making the healthiest choices? Of course not, but I think the key to success is that I keep trying.
What are some of the habits that you have that help keep you healthy mentally and/or psychically?
