I really believe in celebrating small achievements. I think that finding pride in small actions lead to big changes or accomplishments. Here are a few small things I’ve achieved lately:
**Incorporating more veggies into my daily diet. If I don’t make a conscious effort to eat more vegetables daily, I can go days without them. Lately, I’ve been drinking more green smoothies, adding tomatoes and avocados to my egg sandwiches, and even made kale chips the other night for dinner.
I seasoned them with olive oil spray, nutritional yeast, and garlic salt and baked them at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
One day, I sautéed spinach and tomatoes and topped the mixture with goat cheese. That was an easy way to make sure I was getting a good amount of vegetables in.
And I can’t get enough avocados lately. I love them on…everything.
**Eating at home—Nick and I have really been good lately at not eating out. When we lived in our apartment, we ate out at least 2-3 times a week, if not more. Now, we rarely ever eat out and it has become the norm. It saves us a lot of money and we enjoy eating home cooked meals. Now, when we do eat out, it is a treat and more enjoyable.
I would love to say working out has been an achievement, but I’ve been so busy lately that I’m physically exhausted 90% of the time. This week, I plan on changing that and making daily activity something I want to achieve. Even if it is something as small as a 15 minute walk, I know I will feel better emotionally if I do it.
