No Time Like The Present

Well well look what I found at the back of my closet.  It’s a bittersweet reunion with my running shoes.  On the one hand I’m glad to see the paths peaking through the melting snow; yet another reminder that warmer days are coming.  But on the other hand its a daunting reminder that our wedding is only 157 days away!

We’re in full wedding planning mode and I’m super thrilled.  But as for my workout/diet regiment, well that is non-existent. They say “there’s no time like the present” so I suppose today’s a good day as any to put these on and go for a run.  

To speed up the getting in shape process I’ve also decided to clean up my eating habits.  I wouldn’t say I’m an unhealthy eater, but I will admit that I often make poor snack choices.

So instead of snacking on anything chocolate, I’ve stocked our pantry with nuts and dried fruit (cranberries, almonds, pistachios, and cashews are some of my favourite).

I have always loved water! I just need to make a habit to drink more of it.

     

 I started juicing a while back and loved the idea of getting all your vitamins in one glass.  The prepping is easy too.  Often time you don’t even need to peel the fruits or vegetables–just a good clean will do.  The extra wide feeder tube on this Breville is great for juicing whole apples! My favourite juice to make is with 2 carrots, 1 granny smith apple and half a raw red beet.

Greek salad is probably one of my favourite lunch or dinner meals.  There’s something about the fresh crunch of a cucumber and ripe tomato mixed with salty feta cheese and drizzled with a good quality olive oil and vinegar that I can’t resist.

Simple changes can go a long way…so lets see how this goes.
