The kids are finally back in school this week and I am so thankful because I now have more time to focus on ME! I do great with routine and this summer has really thrown me off. I need goals to help me stay focused. So this week, I made a promise to myself that I was getting back on track. Back to clean eating and working out!
I went to Walgreens and picked up a few items to help me stay connected to my goal! I bought a case of bottled water, some raw almonds, and some Silk Almond milk to start making my smoothies again. When I have those three things, I tend to do better! I start my morning off with a smoothie made with spinach, strawberries, greek yogurt, and almond milk. I then use the raw almonds as a snack when I feel hungry. Drinking water, instead of soda or other items, is best for my body. In fact, I recently read that I should be drinking half of my weight in oz. So if I weigh 130 lbs (I wish) then I should be drinking 65 oz of water a day.
Another awesome way to keep myself accountable is to register with Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices. This feature helps keep me living a healthy life easy by setting health goals, tracking progress, and connecting it to my Ftbit app on my phone to keep up with it all! I have several apps on my phone to help keep me moving, but the Walgreens Balance Rewards app is the only one what rewards me for my healthy activity! (I love that it pulls info from Fitbit and MyFitnessPal to reward me!)
Here is how it works:
Simply sign up for a Walgreens Balance Rewards Account, then connect your devices and watch the rewards pile up! You can also get rewarded for setting healthy goals, getting shots, filling prescriptions, and more! 5000 points gives you $5! So you get paid to live a healthier lifestyle! BONUS! Just pull up the app and you can use the money at check out! So simple to use!
Each day you can see your points! The app is so easy to use and I love being able to manage another part of my life via smart phone!
