Focusing on healthy habits

Hi friends!

How are you? I hope all is well.

I’m happy to say I’m starting to focus more on healthy habits. I’ve been feeling so unhealthy lately because I haven’t been actively making effort to do healthy things like plan and make healthy meals, I haven’t been exercising, and I have been drinking too much coffee and pop. Remember when I said I got thrown off because the number on the scale had gone up? Well I realized that I was tying too much to my idea of healthiness, to a point where I felt like if I wasn’t doing the whole thing, it wasn’t good enough. But I realized that’s simply not true. It’s better to add one small thing to what I’m already doing than to just do nothing at all. So yesterday and today, I’ve been focusing on making small changes. Yesterday, I had fruit for breakfast and didn’t drink pop. I didn’t have pop today either, had oatmeal for breakfast and about 3 handfuls of baby carrots while I was at work. I’ve also been making more effort to drink water throughout the day. And I’m starting to feel better with just these small changes! I’m going to try eating more raw fruit and vegetables and get up to 8 cups of water a day.
