One of my favorite healthy living quotes is from Heather of Then Heather Said. Itâ€™s so simple, powerfulâ€¦ and itâ€™s a great way to live day-by-day.
All I have to do is make one healthy choice? I can do that! I like how this quote phrases healthy living in terms of a series of choices, not an overall lifestyle shift or one, huge commitment. Anyone can decide to make a healthy choice.
Yesterday, my healthy choice was doing 40 lunges (20 on each side) after I came home from my run. I also did 40 push-ups in front of the television. I know I need to do more strength work, and since I donâ€™t belong to a gym, things like push-ups, crunches, and lunges will have to suffice. I really have to rally myself to do these things, to be honest. I love cardio but hate stuff like lunges.
The back of my legs were so sore this morning! It was such a nice feeling. :) Like proof that my two healthy choices paid off.
Pumpkin dip on top of banana oatmeal? Yes, please.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 banana

What healthy choice have you made lately?
