Let’s face it, I’ve gained a few pounds with this broken foot. I was SO upset about it at first and definitely a little bit depressed. I had just completed my second ever 5K, purchased some awesome new running sneakers and a fancy new belt for carrying my phone while working out. This boot has been a total setback since I had lost about ten pounds between Jenny Craig and running. But I’ve decided that I can easily get right back where I was without a pity party. With just nine more days in this silly boot (praying for good healing), I’m already planning ways to jumpstart a healthy lifestyle once again.
I need to remind myself about these easy ways to jump back into a healthy lifestyle:
- Drink more water. And more water. And then have some water.
- Cut out sugary drinks and beer. No one likes to be bloated.
- Early morning walks (I am going to attempt to take long, brisk walks as soon as I get the go ahead from my doctors).
- Park at the back of parking lots to ensure more walking when out and about running errands.
- Try something new, like a yoga class or a family hike!
- Choose healthy snacks.
Speaking of healthy snacks, I’m excited to tell you about a variety of new snacks from Orchard Valley Harvest! These new snacks are super convenient for those of us on-the-go and are a great alternative to candy or chips!
