Ever since my injury last year, I’ve struggled to find a balance in life with the right exercise for me because I can no longer do high intensity activities that I love like sprinting and plyometric workouts. This year, I’ve focused on nailing that down by combining a mix of barre, yoga, and my new favorite HIIT cardio workout in Scottsdale, Simply Cardio. Alongside all my favorite outdoor activities – hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, etc.
But to be honest – between traveling, moving in with my boyfriend, rehabbing my leg, and just…life – I’ve really let my healthy eating slip!
There’s something to be said for eating clean…it really does give you so much energy and zest for life, and I want that back! I used to eat super strict and extremely clean. I don’t necessarily strive for that back in particular…I’m now so much busier and maintain a totally different lifestyle than before. But I do think that there is a good balance between the two.
This year for my New Year’s Resolution, I am striving to eat more vegetables! 2 whole vegetables a day, to be exact. This may seem minuscule, but I know it will make a big difference in my diet and energy. We have a farmer’s market down the street from us that’s open on Saturday mornings, so I went this past weekend and filled up my new Mona B bag with everything that I could find! We usually grocery shop for the week on Sundays anyway, so I’m going to make the farmer’s market my new weekend ritual.
Happy New Year y’all!
