Healthy State of Mind


Those who are closest to me know I get really cranky when I haven't eaten for a few hours. I simply don't understand the type of people who forget to eat or skip meals. When my head hits that pillow I'm dreaming about what's for breakfast--and even though I have a solid meal at 7:30 every morning, without fail, I'm hungry an hour later. I've been blessed with a fast metabolism, yes. But each year I notice a subtle difference in my body type, energy, and overall health. I'm no longer the field hockey, eat-whatever-I-want, girl that I was in high school. 

My bad habits of crashing on the couch and meals full of processed carbs have slowly, but surely, begun to attack the energetic and fit girl I once was. With that said, I'm writing this blog to actually ask you a favor. To ask you what truly motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle? The hardest part for me is exercising. I just can't seem to get back into the routine I used to be so familiar with. 

Above are a few goals of mine. Sharing these with you is a way of holding myself accountable. What are yours? What has worked for you? I'd love to hear about them and add your advice to my list of motivation. Thank you for your feedback!


  1. Good plan! I've started running when I can; mostly in the morning before work if I am scheduled to start working late enough. I've cut out all fried foods and have started eating various fruits and veggies as snacks between meals.

    Good luck!

  2. You go girl!

    P.S. I am on my second day of a three day DIY juicing cleanse! It is definitely though but I am feeling a bit better today ;)


  3. I definitely need to start something like this as well! Good luck with it all girl. Thanks for the inspiration xo

  4. This is great Elissa! I am trying to be better at these things myself. I think what helps is involving others in your goals, like having someone keep you accountable or having a workout buddy :)


I'm a lover of sweet notes, thank you for leaving yours! I respond to each one personally via email.
