Chocolate Coconut Popcorn + 5 Minute Workout
Healthy Lifestyle Approved
Being healthy is not a diet or a fad, it is a lifestyle. It is something that you choose to do everyday to make you feel better inside and out. I have been told numerous times that it takes 30 days of doing something to make it a habit, but I have found that it is pretty easy to forget that habit at times.
For example, I have been exercising (running and going to Jazzercise) 3 – 5 days a week for years now, but there are times when life gets busy and I miss a week, then that week turns into two weeks. Ugh! I always manage to get back on the saddle, but it happens!
Or, I eat great for a week – salmon for dinner, chicken, salads, my smoothie for breakfast, then somehow a box of cheese crackers ends up empty. Now that the box of crackers is officially empty, I can get back on track again… But, what if I had snacks available that were easy to prep and tasted great that didn’t even make that box of crackers look tempting?
What if I could have healthy options that appealed to the sweet and salty side of me, didn’t cost a fortune, and tasted great….
I need snacking options that fit into my healthy lifestyle.
What if I could get in a quick workout on those days that I just didn’t think it was possible, so that one missed day didn’t turn into a week, or two weeks…I know I could carve out 5 minutes…
I need a quick workout that I can do anywhere, so I don’t get off track.
