If not for these 5 things, I’d have a very hard time living a healthy and lively lifestyle. Here’s why I love them and why you should love them too – enjoy!
- Starbucks Venti iced green tea “Straight Up” (no sweetener no added water) – When I’m hungry (or bored) this is my #1 go to. It’s filling, hydrating, taste great, loaded with antioxidants and serves as a natural metabolism booster. Also, by ordering it “straight up” I consume ZERO calories!
- Pedometer – If you remember my Pedometer Diary post a few months back, I tested this thing out just for fun, but I find that it really helps me stay more active during the day. I tend to get up from my desk and walk around every hour or so. I also intentionally park far away from my office building to meet my step goal.
- Daily Devotions – Fitness isn’t only limited to our bodies, it extends to our minds and souls. That said, I carry a really small daily devotional handbook that I got as a high school graduation gift. It’s nice and concise and organized by “life topic.” I find that just taking 5-10 minutes each day to a read a few lines and give thanks to God really helps keep me in a positive mindset and grateful spirit.
- Apples – Because I travel every week for work, my stomach situation gets a little “off track” if you will. Apples are a super fiber source, easy to carry, keep my breath fresh and most importantly, keep me regular ;)
- TaeBo DVDs + Billy Bands – I became a TaeBo groupie when I was 15 and Billy still gives it to me like he used to in my teens. The Billy Bands add resistance for extra calorie burn and toning. Also, I just pack the DVD and bands in my suitcase and easily workout on my laptop in my hotel room. Super convenient!
