Have you ever seen the Jim Carrey flick, “Yes Man”? Aside from being a funny movie, it serves a great point. When you say “yes” to key moments in life, you shape your future. When you made good choices in everyday moments, you shape your body too.
How a Moment of Yes Can Shape Your Body and Your Life
A few months ago I had one of those life-changing (and ultimately, body-shaping) “moments of yes”. While I had always been healthy and active, one morning I decided to join a new gym. In that simple “moment of yes”, I changed the future of my life and my physique forever.
Not only have I lost 15 lbs. and toned up more, I’ve gained inspiring new friends, knowledge, and so much more.
Since the “moment of yes” that transformed my body and life, I’ve come to love a variety of workouts, including Yoga, Reformer Pilates, TRX, and Barre. In addition, I’ve been so inspired by my new fitness regime, I’ve even started collaborating with local fitness instructors (to create the “Yoga in the Vines Series” and the “Barre on the Beach Series”).
To inspire your “moment of yes” to get healthy and fit, below are some helpful tips to get you started.
Eat Healthy Foods
Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet is a big step toward getting (and staying) in shape. But, if you’re a foodie (like me), the challenge can be finding flavorful foods that are nourishing, low in calories, and provide essential nutrients.
From vegetable-centric dishes to lean proteins, eating well is 80% the key to maintaining a healthy weight, feeling energized, and improving your body’s natural processes. As an example meal, a nourishing soup (such as Well Yes!® Soup) alongside a veggie-rich salad is always a good choice.
To help you along your journey of wellness, head to your nearest retailer to find Well Yes! Soups. In addition to including only nourishing ingredients (such as chicken meat with no antibiotics, sweet potatoes, kale, and quinoa), you can feel good knowing there are no artificial flavors or colors either. Since we all enjoy good-tasting foods, Well Yes! flavorful soups are available in a variety of 9 options, including Chicken Noodle Soup, Tomato Carrot Bisque, and Hearty Lentil with Vegetables. To find a retailer near you, visit their site, here! They even have vegetarian and vegan options as well. Save money on Well Yes! with these coupons.
Another easy way to stay hydrated and healthy is to drink naturally-flavored sparkling water. Not only does it taste good, it’s also fun to drink (and very refreshing). Plus, staying hydrated has another benefit – it helps you lose that unwanted “water weight” since it flushes toxins from your body. That’s not all – your skin will look more moisturized, smooth, and radiant as well.
Whether you prefer to join a gym, do a boot camp workout, or go hiking, staying active and doing cardiovascular activities helps you shed extra pounds, boost your metabolism, and increase your natural energy level.
Even doing daily 20-minute brisk walks around your neighborhood is a good way to keep your weight in check. Plus, the added calming benefit of being out in nature helps to soothe anxiety and relieve tension.
Make No Excuses
If you’re making excuses about not having enough time or money to work out, let’s shift that mindset right now.
For less than $20 you can buy a set of resistance bands that provide a full body workout no matter where you are. Head to the park, go to the beach, or stay at home – you can workout anywhere.
Just Say Yes!
By making good choices each day to take care of your mind and body, you help to shape your life and physique. When you say yes to eating healthy, doing activities that are good for you and keep you motivated, and surround yourself with positive people who inspire you, your life will grow and flourish.
The best part is – it’s easy to start. All you have to do is say “yes”!
