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 â€˜figure outâ€™ what it meant to me to be healthy, I would always make these grand, sweeping gestures â€“ â€œGym every day! No breaks!â€ or â€œNo dessert; only vegetables!â€ One day, I realized that itâ€™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. Iâ€™ll select one habit at random, and Iâ€™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 kidsâ€™ book, Operation Beautiful: For Best Friends (available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie Bound).
Iâ€™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!
