Since we closed on our house we’ve been busy with cleaning and packing our old place, and moving/shopping/organizing/unpacking our new place. We are finally starting to really settle in and enjoy our space. Let me tell you, I’ll never take a driveway and a nice spacious yard for granted, ever. The past few weeks, going on a month now, have been a whirlwind. I thought I’d share how I’ve been keeping myself healthy despite my lack of working out.
Making time to MOVE: Recently on my Instagram account and on my Facebook page, I’ve shared my love for my Fitbit. We bought them about a month or so ago and I can’t begin to say enough great things about it (P.S. this is not sponsored by Fitbit). My Fitbit motivates me to take that extra 3-minutes during my bathroom break and walk around a bit, it motivates me to take the stairs, and it pushes me to reach my goal of steps each day; thus, walking and moving way more on a daily basis. I also use the silent alarms to wake me up in the morning (the days of arguing over my incessant snoozing are over). But my favorite favorite feature has to be the battery life. I am so impressed by it! I literally have not charged my Fitbit since before our move, and it is on medium as I type! If it was another gadget I had to charge daily, I could see myself ending up forgetting about doing it.
Snacking… I never leave the house without a snack on me. It’s seriously not worth it! For one, I get “hangry,” which is defined as anger caused by hunger. Get it? That word is fitting. But moreso because if I go into a meal starving I’m likely to want everything and anything, which could potentially ruin my goals.
Getting a good night sleep, staying hydrated, and keeping up with my food shopping were essentials during this busy month. Lacking sleep is not healthy for us; we run way better with a good night sleep. So, winding down and going to bed early, despite the million things I want to finish, was a must. I also made sure to keep the fridge stocked with healthy foods as the month has been filled with quick dinners such as breakfast for dinner, BBQ, and crock-pot meals.
I am so excited to giveaway this package to one lucky reader. It has a $250 giftcard to Market Basket (keep that fridge stocked), a Fitbit flex (keep yourself MOVING), a Define water bottle (stay hydrated), and Orchard Valley Harvest packs (so you never go hungry).
