A healthy lifestyle is something I have always strived for. Unfortunately, I tend to let life get in the way sometimes and fall out of routines. I have put my foot down over the past month or so and the positive results are already happening. Today I'll share some of my personal steps taken towards a healthier lifestyle. Come on this journey, baby!
Working out or being active at least 5 days a week. This doesn't necessarily mean I'll be in the gym 24/7. I try to take one day outside exploring LA or hiking one of our many great trails. This is all about a healthy lifestyle change, which is not the way I have looked at it as much in the past. Staying active is key! And having a cute jacket + pants doesn't hurt. I love this new one by Zella!
Drinking more water. I have made a vow to myself and partially for my skin to drink 3 of my Nalgene bottles a day. That is nearly 100 ounces of water - a goal I always seem to keep on my list. Time to achieve it! I'm taking the 30 day challenge and I can't wait to see where it takes me.
No More Sleep Timer. I said this previously in my post about my journey to becoming a morning person. I firmly believe this makes a difference in my sleep. And I'm trying to get my 8 hours in as much as possible.

A green smoothie a day keeps the doctor away. I have officially become a fan of the green smoothie. I get so many nutrients from this little guy and it doesn't taste terrible! I'll be honest - I haven't made many at home because I love walking to my local juicery down the street. Occasionally Chandler will blend us a few. It gives me energy!
Eating less processed foods. I will be upping my intake of fruits and veggies plus reducing the amount of gluten in my diet - all within balance of course. I'm mainly focusing on portions and also paying attention to sodium. This always gets me!
