It is the beginning of a new year and I think it is safe to say that nearly all of us will be reaffirming our commitments to either establish or maintain a healthy lifestyle. And the foundation for making those commitments stick is to think about WHY you are doing it - because otherwise it is almost a guarantee that those good intentions will fall by the wayside at the first temptation!
So let's share some of the reasons why we are here, why we have decided that clean eating is a crucial part of our healthy lifestyle!
Some of my reasons:
1) I feel AWESOME when I eat clean - I have tons of energy and almost completely eliminate any cravings for unhealthy food.
2) I want the best quality of life I can get - I don't want to be weighed down and hindered physically and mentally by being overweight, and I want to do everything I can to avoid health issues that are fully preventable by following a healthy lifestyle.
3) I want to set a good example for my kids - although getting my family to eat clean with me is still a work in progress, I believe that just by following a healthy lifestyle myself I am making an impression on my children that will help them to make healthy decisions for themselves as they grow older.
I am looking forward to reading everyone's responses!
