Hello all! I know it’s been months since I last posted, and I know I’ve been very absent on Instagram and Twitter. Embarrassingly so, for someone who wants to incorporate social media and blogging into her future career.
When I first drafted this post I had a lengthy piece written out, but I thought I’d rather turn it into a confessional letter to all of you readers out there.
Living a healthy lifestyle was not on my list of priorities for the past two months. Working out was a chore. Eating garbage was way more exciting when I was bent over my laptop chugging out paper after assignment after study guide. And I felt like crap. Literally.
So what does someone who’s studying nutrition do once they’ve reached that moment? Plan for 2016 to better starting today. Commit to eating well again (80% of the time like usual), commit to working out 4-5 days each week (while I still can), and commit to bring some mental clarity to my life.
What things can I pinpoint which made me forget all of the healthy lifestyle principles I’ve been learning? Stress. Holiday indulgence. Boredom with what I was doing. And knowing these triggers are the beginning steps into making a New Year’s resolution sustainable.
This is what I’m going to do to make 2016 a better year. What are you going to do to make 2016 even better than last year?
Happy New Year to each and every one of you, let’s make 2016 amazing!
