Fit February: Challenge #2
What a week — last week flew by in a blink of an eye! I hope the beginning of your fitness journey is going strong so far and most importantly, don't forget to have fun! If you're just joining in, it's never too late to start. I'm not gonna lie; working out 5 days a week is definitely a challenge for me. It meant mindfully scheduling a time in my calendar to work out, and sometimes waking up extra early to fit time before work. Having said that, I feel as motivated as ever to keep it up so I'm going to incorporate the next challenge in addition to moving my body regularly. After all, a balanced lifestyle is 80% diet & 20% exercise so let's focus on our eating habits this week—
Week 1: Work out 5 days a week
- Week 2: Saying NOPE to dairy
- Week 3: Take at least 10,000 steps a day for a week
- Week 4: Nix Processed foods & white sugar
Today marks the beginning of my second challenge: eliminating diary from my diet. The main motives behind this is to improve digestion, reduce bloating, and for clearer skin. If you're in but get tempted easily, I recommend trying out my favourite dairy alternatives like: Earth's Own soy, almond, or coconut milk, Earth Balance All Natural Spread as a buttery spread for your (avocado) toast, and the best series of vegan cashew cream-cheese spread by Spread'Em Kitchen Co for all your snacking needs. Best of all, we can always fall count on Virtuous Pie for all our plant-based ice cream and pizza (full of cashew mozzarella) needs. Sounds doable, right? I know you can do it!
