April 2017 - We've all heard it before because it's a simple formula. You can eat less, move more, or - ideally - you can do those two things in tandem. As I move into my mid-forties, I am definitely trying to be better about all of this. However, instead of 'eat less,' because that is exceptionally challenging as a food writer, I am making my mantra: eat better, move more.
My goal is not necessarily weight loss, though that would be a welcome effect. My goal is to be more healthy - to, again, eat better and move more. On the eating better side, I'm bad with diets. So, I will start with actively cutting out processed sugars and being more mindful of snacking.
This page will be a work in progress, but my first step towards moving more was to join a group of local moms and register for a race. It's been a long time since I've run a race...probably since I started having problems with my plantar in 2009. Though it appears from the photo above that I ran the Big Sur 10.6 miler in 2010. Still, it's been a long seven years with minimal running.
So, I'll start slow. Really slow. Still one foot in front of the other is still better than sitting on the couch, right?!
Serendiptiously, I was just selected to review some items for PACT Organic through my role with MomsMeet as a blog ambassador. As I launch this Eat Better, Move More journey, I'll be doing it in some new gear.* I loved that the box reads: "Change starts with your underwear." Okay! New underwear? Check. Change? It's a coming!
I even received a 2-pack of men's boxer brief for my Love. He whined that he only got one thing and I got "more than [he] could count!" Too funny.
