Aim for 85%

“You don’t have to make 100% healthy choices all the time. It’s what you do most of the time — day in, day out — that counts. The healthier you get, the easier and more automatic healthy choices will become.”

#20 on 101 Revolutionary Ways to be Healthy

I am LIVING this right now and it’s so exciting!!

A few weeks ago I began a concerted effort to learn more about where my food comes from, how it’s processed, how it gets to my table and how I can make better choices for my health and my family’s health.

I began making conscious choices about what and how much I eat. I’m choosing organic when I can and certainly choosing “real” foods over processed foods. I’m choosing water instead of other drinks.

I’ve also been ramping up my activity – nothing drastic…walking more, sitting less. Using the stairs instead of the elevator. I’ve made simple changes that anyone of almost any health status could make.

I weighed myself for the first time today in a few weeks and I’ve lost 4.6 pounds!!! All with simple, focused, conscious changes in my life. That’s almost a 5# bag of potatoes!!! GONE!

You don’t have to eat organic 100% of the time. You don’t have to exercise for hours and hours in a given day.

Learn to make better choices. Then be consistent with your healthier choices. Your body with thank you!

Aim for 85%. Here’s to your health…

YOLO!
