This post is a not-so-subtle attempt at self-shaming myself into weeding the garden this weekend.
How come I am so good at growing weeds and so crap at growing pretty flowers?!
The most colorful thing in my garden is this purple smoothie.
In the blender:
1 cup soy milk
2 scoops protein powder
1 frozen banana
Frozen mixed berrries
One Small Healthy Effort Giveaway
My Healthy Tipping Point philosophy is that small decisions add up to something amazing. When I was still trying to ‘figure out’ what it meant to me to be healthy, I would always make these grand, sweeping gestures – “Gym every day! No breaks!” or “No dessert; only vegetables!” One day, I realized that it’s really about making lots of small and consistent efforts because these things are much more maintainable.
In the spirit of small efforts, I thought it would be fun for us all to share one small action we do every day for better mental or physical health. I’ll select one habit at random, and I’ll send the winner a copy of one of my upcoming books when released. You can choose either Healthy Tipping Point: A Powerful Program for a Stronger, Happier You (available for pre-order on Amazon,Barnes and Noble, or Indie Bound) or my kids’ book, Operation Beautiful: For Best Friends (available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie Bound).
I’ll start: My daily healthy effort is to drink a big glass of water before I eat breakfast. It really helps with digestion and sets me off on the right foot so I hydrate throughout the day!
