Since my trip to Fitbloggin late last month, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my next steps look like in this little weight loss process of mine.
I am not at my goal weight, but I’m pretty darn happy where I am. I do feel like I have an opportunity to push myself a little more in upcoming weeks and to be a little more selective regarding the foods I eat.
That being said, ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™ could not have appeared at a better time. Not only did this campaign give me a fantastic opportunity to try a new beverage, but it also gave me an opportunity to consider how I want to “Crack Life Open™” moving forward.
I know that losing 65 pounds didn’t just happen.
I absolutely know that it was the result of me overhauling my diet and making better choices. Those choices were ending my relationship with fast food restaurants and spending every evening on my couch. Along the way, I discovered a new love for healthy cooking, a passion for yoga, and a fierce determination to move forward on this journey and create a better, stronger version of me throughout the process.
Inspired by Fitbloggin, I’ve identified that it’s time to take the next step. It just is. I deserve to be the absolute healthiest version of me, and only I can make this happen.
Moving forward, I want to incorporate more vegetables into my diet, to be conscientious of hydration, and to fuel my body with healthy foods that will power me through all of my activities. The other commitment I’ve made is that I refuse to sacrifice flavor along the way…. When I sacrifice flavor, I fail. I need delicious flavors to stay satisfied and to stay on track.
As part of renewing my commitment, I jumped feet first into to the opportunity to try ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™. Having read much about this popular product, I knew that coconut water naturally possesses five electrolytes and that it is fat free – – totally great for my body as a result. I also knew that so many of my readers and friends were drinking this product, so I had to give it a shot!
While I found both flavors to be delicious, the chocolate coconut water stole my heart. It tasted like dessert! For someone who loves a sweet treat, a small glass of chocolate coconut water was perfect for quenching my sweet tooth and helping me to say “No Thanks to Cake.”
Just because I’m eating healthy doesn’t mean that my life will be slowing down.
Instead, it means I pack my lunch a little differently than I used to, and that I prepare for the cravings that may come up.
I’m still living life. I’m still making it to the beach, and I refuse to sacrifice a moment of my life for healthy living. Instead, I’m using healthy living to enhance my life…
While I’m busy “Cracking Life Open” with new healthy choices this summer, I plan to enjoy every second of this beautiful life! For me, it’s all about balance. That beautiful balance that makes it all worth it…
