I have been making some major changes in my life.
However, my motto is (working on this one daily) …. simple, slow and steady wins the race.
When I get super excited about the progress I am making…I pull it back in, back up and remind myself…simple, slow and steady wins the race (grrrrr).
Every day I have made a tweak (And we are on day 12 of 2019 people. I have so totally out done myself as far as New Year goals go)!
I am not making changes because it is a New Year, but to be honest, that does help encourage me.
I am making changes to improve my health because of my job and my family and my friends, before AND during tax season, and that just happens to coincide with a/the New Year.
I am making changes for real because several people I care a great deal about (read: the two most important men in my life, and a very close family friend) have had or are battling cancer in one form or another, among other things.
So far, all are/have kicked c’s butt!
But one’s battle is far more serious and harder to overcome, and yet that person still wows everyone (including doctors) with their resilience and bounce backiness.
I am pretty sure I am not capable of that, so I need to try to right my wrongs now.
For me personally, the damage might have already been done, but I am at least going to try to get my natural healer/course correction on.
I have so much to share regarding the journey (granted it has only been 12 days, but still, this is a journey people and I am off to a pretty good start)!
Things going on in my world that I hope to share with you soon, but keeping in mind tax season is now unfolding….
Floating tank experience. (I so totally enjoyed it, but afterwards due to my toxicity levels due to not exercising/sweating out my toxins like the good ole days, I became very nauseous later in the day, and to be honest for a couple of more days that followed. BUT. When I am on track again, the totally exercising and sweating, I WILL do this again).
Daily Harvest Smoothies (By far one of the BEST things I have done)!
Healthy fresh chef made meals delivered to one’s door step completely prepared…. via Real Eats (simply boil pouches in water for 6 minutes. I am getting ready to try my third meal and I am not sure I am sold on this one yet). Soon I will try Freshly in February (to be heated in the microwave, but I prefer the oven, so that is how I will roll).
Hello Fresh deliveries…. meals that I personally cook with the ingredients and recipe delivered to my door. I have enjoyed this set up (past and present) greatly. I may need to pause this when things heat up for tax season, but alongside Daily Harvest, I really enjoy this one – cooking healthy meals that are so totally yummy!
I signed up for these options with “New Year” coupons and have saved a boat loads of money.
I also placed my first order for each and then promptly put things on hold (aka skipped a week or two for each) so I could figure out what I like and wanted to continue.
I researched all these options, plus so MANY others, all of December before taking the plunge.
I watched youtube reviews on each of my current picks, along with at least 6 other company options that I may try should I want to cancel and try something new.
Bottom line – I want to be healthy.
Especially during tax season when soon enough one will care less about anything else but tax season.
When cancer is “out there” it is on your radar, but when cancer hits close to home with those you love…. Hello. And not in a good way.
I don’t know about you, but I seriously need to make some changes to better my own odds.
And that is what I am doing by taste testing, cooking or blending, and tweaking daily.
PS – So far – by far – Daily Harvest is a Slam Dunk Winner!
I have tested and shared my smoothies with others and this line/company is a BIG hit.
I am not a breakfast eater for the most part and these smoothies allow me to drink my (organic) fruits and veggies, as well as replace my daily Starbucks fraps as a bi-product, to start my day off on the right note.
Side note – I have felt great and well satisfied on my smoothie days thus far.
And like all the youtube reviews I have watched for all say….
I bought these products with my own money and I was in no way influenced by Daily Harvest (nor any other company I am/have reviewed) nor do I receive anything from anyone should you try any of these options/companies.
Although, our receptionist at work keeps encouraging me…. Dude, with all that you share from all the plans you try, you should SO be making money for inspiring others to try it/them!
