It was never about a number on the scale.
At the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would get into better shape, not only for my health, but to be able to keep up with my daughter.
How am I doing?
Better. I can look at the number on the scale to see a difference, but it's really not important or significant to me.
I can feel a difference in my clothes. I'm filling them out in different ways, but I like it!
I can feel a difference with my neck and upper back. I'm getting stronger, and I don't crunch or pop as much as I did. (The perks of aging, I suppose.)
But most of all - my daughter can see a difference in the way that we interact and play. I don't have to be as careful when I pick her up and swing her around. I can wrap her up in my arms and rock her, and at five years old, that's not always an easy task.
So what's new and different about our lives? It's all really simple. We've made some easy food swaps with our favorite recipes. We exercise a little more each week, and enjoy daily dance parties in our living room. And we've switched to healthy on-the-go snacks: ZonePerfect nutrition bars.
My daughter and I especially enjoy the ZonePerfect nutrition bars. Every single one that I've sampled over the past several months has been delectable. Best of all, they are a healthier alternative to my typical go-to snack (candy bars!)
The holiday season is rapidly approaching, which means binge-eating, comfort foods, and resolutions are just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to get a jump-start on your resolutions to end the year on a better track!
