Nutrition Tips, Plain Old Nutrition Content

My Nutrition Plan For 2018

Hold up. I’m actually writing a blog post about food or something nutritional related? What world is this? I’m just kidding. I have so much nutritional content I want to share but for some reason I just never really got to it. I always just want to write a story time. I can tell you one thing for sure, I’m going to be sharing a lot of food related content in 2018. You will see why in a second.

So the entire December I’ve been thinking of what I want to achieve in the year 2018 and what I want to do differently. There is nothing like a new year to try a lot of new things. To grow. You might have seen the no candy for 365 days for the northern lights post go up around that time if not, please feel free to go give it a read. Self promotion at its finest. Cutting down on sugar is one of my biggest goals for 2018. I got somewhere in 2017 (a lot later in the year then what I originally wanted) but I could do better. One of the places I really lacked was the amount of vegetables and fruit I eat. 99% of my meals for dinner does contain some sort of vegetables which is a MASSIVE step up for me but that’s one meal. I only eat fruit in the summer. That’s not good enough. So for the new year I want to try 1-2 portion of fruit and 1-2 portion of vegetables per day. If my favorite fruit is out of season then I just need to think of something. I still have some hints of the same picky eater of a child in me. Hey it’s one step at a time.

Drinking water is so damn important I’m not even going to touch that one but I’m not drinking enough of it on a day to day basis and that needs to change. I used to be so damn good with that one, heck I was in danger of drinking TOO much water. I’m just going to strive for 2 liters of water per day. I do seem to do drink more water if I have an app to put my amount in. My favorite app for tracking water is Plant Nanny. I eventually deleted the app because I’ve gotten every plant there is so it was less exciting but it took me nearly a year to reach that level so definitely still go for it! I’ve recently started using a new app, My Water. It’s doing okay. I did get a FitBit watch for Christmas and the app has a water tracker function so I will most likely end up switching over. You just need to find a way where it fun or exciting to drink all your water. The app is just nice because I get a reminder.

The next nutritional related thing I want to do in the new year is something I’ve tried on and off. Every time I do it my body responds to it quite well. I don’t know why it hasn’t became a habit. I don’t have anything against the taste or anything like that. I just need to start drinking it on the daily and eventually it will become a habit. I want to drink green tea or lemon water 3 times a week if not more. It just flushes everything out and it makes my body feel so good. It just clenches everything.

The last thing on my list is a 7 day smoothie clench. I’m not sure why this one is on my list but I know how it got on. I want to say late 2016 I discovered my favorite raw vegan Alyse Brautigam, the founder of Raw Alignment. On her YouTube channel she was doing a juice clench. I really liked the idea and thought it would be something nice to try out. I however would pick a smoothie over a juice any day so hence the 7 day smoothie clench.

Oh who can forget about the nutritional blog related stuff…I’m just going to try out new recipes and play around with clean treats. I’m not sure how great that will go but we will see now won’t we? May this year be as clean and green with a little sprinkle of chocolate on the side (special occasions for me)!




Story Time

What To Expect From Me In 2018

Well hello there! First of all…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! May this year be a truly wonderful time! Let’s make it a great one. If I can give you one tip it is always try to stay positive. A positive mindset attracts positivity. Same goes for a negative mindset. It attracts negativity.

The one sure thing you can expect from me this year is A LOT of content. I’m not kidding. I love writing these blogs and as long as I have one person reading them and I’m helping them in some shape or form I will continue to write them. It will be the normal categories on the most part. Fitness. Nutrition. General Life. Story Time. Self Love. I do plan to eventually share some stuff related to creativity as it’s something I do quite often and I like to think I’m original but let’s not jump the gun. DIY, cool stuff to do and etc. I’m getting so excited!

The update schedule is the normal twice a week. Monday and Friday. I haven’t been consistent with these updates every week but I will definitely try for the new year. I want my readers here to know that every Monday and every Friday there will be a blog post. Fun fact. If I keep it up the entire year and this is not counting the extra blogs that appear every now and again I will publish over a 100 blogs in 2018. I hope you will stick around for all of it. Flutters eyes suggestively while trying to win you over with words. How am I doing so far? Wait will this help…I want to update everyday for a month somewhere this year. I might even do this in January as I have my England vacation and that’s a lot of content to write about…or well after the vacation is behind me. I will see how it goes. I don’t want to milk one story too much. There is only so much I can say about a day at home and the gluten free donut I’m dying to inhale in London. My mouth is already watering. I haven’t had a donut in over two years. It’s time!

That is pretty much what you can expect from me this year. Some very well structured blogs with facts and graphs and then other content where I sometimes go of track. My mommy says it add character okay. Alright. That’s not true. She does read almost every blog I post but I bet if I asked her she would say that. I hope to see you around! Don’t be a stranger now. Introduce yourself in the comments below or not. Just say hey every now and again so I can know your still reading. Hint. Hint.
