So many of us are trying to move towards a healthier lifestyle, and of course the New Year is a great time to start.
But really and truly, any time is a great time to start.
Any movement is better than no movement.
Each and every healthy choice is an improvement over an unhealthy choice.
I really wanted to bring the leftover meatloaf for lunch today. But one of the things that works for me when I am on Weight Watchers is to keep my points super low throughout the day so I can enjoy a 'normal' dinner in the evening and a glass of wine.
I'm also trying to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my meals as I feel I stepped away from that for a little while.
So, despite the meatloaf craving I took the time this morning before work to prepare a spinach salad: baby spinach, scallions, tomatoes, sliced boiled egg, crumbled bacon, and Gorgonzola. Light on the bacon (1/2 slice, crumbled) and light on the Gorgonzola. A drizzle of olive oil, some mango balsamic, salt and pepper.
It's not meatloaf but it's a mighty good salad. And in the end, my body will thank me for it.
Since I was struggling with the battle of the meatloaf I know many of you out there who are also trying to embrace a healthier lifestyle may also be struggling.
Together we can work to motivate each other. Together we are incredibly powerful.
Little changes can make a big difference.
We can do this.
We WILL do this.
We can do it together.
