How to create a healthy environment that supports a healthy lifestyle journey? What do we need?
Wednesday, March 06, 2013
I will try to answer that question for my situation.
My goal is to create an environment where I do not have to overthink what to eat when I get hungry. If I pre-plan and pre-cook foods, and have them on hand when hunger strikes, I will naturally turn to them instead of grabbing just any old thing that is convenient.
What do I need?
I need plenty of fresh vegetables and some fruits. I plan on steaming several servings of vegetables to have on hand for snacks. I will cook double portions of proteins so that I can grab a portion and eat it when I get hungry.
Exercise is also an important element in my healthy lifestyle journey. I have mapped out where in my apartment I can safely do my exercises. I have purchased the equipment I need (mostly resistance bands), a set of barbells, and a foam roller, and I borrowed a stability ball.
I leave some of the equipment out in plain sight to remind me I need to exercise.
I don't bring junk food into the house, so the next step is to pre-cook food so it is ready to eat when needed.
Any suggestions ?
