Well, here we are the end of February and by now most of you probably have ditched your Healthy New Year’s resolution. I usually do, too. This year I made a change, a commitment to stay healthy an entire year and so far I have felt much better. I also teamed up with Premier Protein to get you this sponsored content, however as always my ideas and opinions are my own.
So far this year I eat better, I have more energy and overall things are much better. My son loves to work out with me and he is a great motivation for me. A few tips I wanted to share with you are below, so check them out and see how you can get back on track with your New Year’s resolution so this year will be the best year yet!
My 5 tips to keep your New Year’s Healthy resolution going all year long
Keep it simple. Don’t try to make extravagant meals or fancy recipes. Keep it simple with fresh veggies, protein and if you are in a bine, grab a Premier Protein’s ready-to-drink shakes for on the go. Don’t overthink it, just keep it simple and it will be easy to keep it going all year long.
Meal Prep. This is a big one, I prepare all my snacks, lunches and drinks on the weekend for the entire week. I place all my Premier Protein’s ready-to-drink shakes, my fruit & veggies in my fridge in small container so I can just grab what I want and pack on my way out the door.
Take 10 minutes twice a day and walk; whether it is to take the kids to the school bus or taking the dog for a walk; 10 minutes twice a day is a great start and you will not miss that time.
Drink plenty of Water. For some reason drinking plenty of water is very hard for me, I have to make a drinking chart every day to keep track off how much I drink, very hard but so worth it.
Eliminate sugars. Try to reduce sugar as much as you can. Add fresh fruit to your diet to eliminate the craving for sweets.
These are my 5 simple ways to stay healthy all year long. So far it is working out and you will see after 90 days it will be like a routine and no longer feel like you have to work hard to stay healthy. Things will get easier, just don’t give up.
Try to keep a bottle of Premier Protein’s ready-to-drink shakes in your purse to eliminate the fast food run during lunch or while sitting at the Soccer field watching the kids exercise. It will be your new BFF. I love having simple solutions for on the go and Premier Protein (my favorite is Chocolate but they actually have more amazing flavors like Strawberry & Cream, Caramel, Bananas & Cream and Vanilla) makes it really easy to keep me on track.
I also have a Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Power Shake recipe that we love to make and I make one at least a few times a week. Be sure to check it out.
How do you keep your New Year’s Resolution going? Have you made a simple change that made a big impact in your life? Would love to hear all about it, leave me a comment below.
I just started using those Protein drinks this month! They were on sale at my local Costco, so I figured that was a good time to give them a try. They only had a couple of flavors, so I decided to try the chocolate. My husband and I like them. My dad rides his bike a lot and he’s always on the lookout for more protein, so I gave him some of these, and he really likes them too. I would love to try that bananas and cream flavor next!
