Every year for the last decade or more, I say that this is “the year” that I finally make myself a priority and take control of my health. I typically go through phases where I do ok, but then I get off track and ultimately fall short of my intentions.
I know many Mom’s can relate.
With so much to do, it can be challenging to stick to a healthy lifestyle. Especially when you tend to focus on your kids health over your own.
This year, however, has been different. While I’m not where I want to be, I am consistently moving in the right direction.
I’ve been working out six or seven days a week for almost three months now.
I’m meditating on a regular basis, which has done wonders for my stress level.
And my diet has been clean too.
A big shift for me was realizing the importance of lean and clean protein in a healthy lifestyle.
Although I’ve always considered myself a “carb girl,” I can feel the difference when I get more protein in my diet.
Chicken is one of my favorite sources of protein. It is so versatile in recipes and contains all of the essential amino acids we need!
Of course, not all chicken is clean. We love Just BARE Natural Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, which are vegetable and grain fed and receive no antibiotics, ever. They are American Humane Certified and traceable to family farms.
