Welcome Simply Eileen, this is a blog where I want to share my daily insight about a healthy lifestyle, makeup, fashion, and anything that I can think of to make your day a little bit better! Does anyone ever tell themselves that they want a healthy lifestyle, but you get so tempted by the temptations around you? SAME HERE! I don’t know how many times I have told myself, “Yep, today is the day that I will start!” Then, you go to the office, and there is a box of donuts in the break room… So, I completely understand where it becomes such a challenge.
BUT HAVE NO FEAR, I’m here to help you try and avoid these little temptations. 🙂 There are so many little tricks and tips that I would like to share with you all, on our little adventure! So, let begin!
My Plate is a wonderful app, that was recommended to me by a friend. This is an app that you can use to document what you have been eating throughout the day! Which could be a good thing, or maybe sometimes a bad thing… It keeps track of your calorie intake, while giving you an easy to read layout of what nutrients you’re getting. This app really helps, especially when you want to eat something bad! I always think to myself, “Well, if I want to eat it then I’ll have to track it..” And lets face it, who wants to track something that really isn’t beneficial to themselves! So, in that way alone it saves me the time and the calories. 😉
This tip really goes hand in hand with the app above. I know you’ve probably heard it a thousand times, but meal prep is going to be your best friend. Not only will you have your lunches packed for the entire week, but it does not take that long to make (and you’re not scrambling for food!). I feel that a huge misconception when it comes to meal prepping is you will be eating the same thing over and over again. That may be true to an extent, but you can have a lot of fun with it! There are a lot of different recipes that are healthy for you, that you won’t get sick of chicken, rice, and veggies! Like please, we need some pizzazz to our meals here. I have a great recipe that I could eat day in and day out which I will share with you guys on my next blog post!
My final tip for today is staying active. In order for us to maintain a healthy lifestyle, we need to stay active. I’m not telling you that you need to spend 2 hours in the gym to be active. But, going out for a 15 minute workout, or taking a 10 minute walk can surely do the trick. Yesterday, I was so determined to work out, but I had a lot of errands to run. Fortunately for me, I put a good walk at the mall! It was so great to feel the burn in my legs, but not so great for my bank account.. Little things you do everyday keep you active, so just keep that positive outlook!
Well, those are my little tips for today! But, I will go into further detail in my future posts. I hope this gives you a little inspiration to keep a healthy lifestyle and I cannot wait to see how far we can go!
If you guys would like to keep following me, I will post every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I cannot wait to get to know all of you, and to let this adventure begin! Let me know in the comments your tips for a healthier you! I can’t wait to hear them!
Have a wonderful Sunday, my darlings!
