What you buy, you eat. If you resist the urge to buy those cookies or cheesecake ice cream it most likely won't be a problem at all not to eat it, because it's not there! I'm not saying you can't buy cookies or ice cream ever again (I usually have some chocolate at home, just in case), but just try to only buy it when you think you're deserving of a little treat!
Start eating whole grain instead of white, drink fizzy (lemon)water or fruity tea instead of soda, have popcorn or crispy edamame as a snack instead of chips etc. etc. (check out these ideas!) Ever since I cut soda from my diet a couple of years ago, I swear, my body did a huge happy dance, and up until this day I don't miss it at all and actually cringe whenever I do have a sip. Which bring me to one of my personal rules: don't drink your calories. (unless we're talking about smoothies, then it's totally fine. YUM)
Walk or bike somewhere instead of taking the car/bus/whatever. Take the stairs instead of the elevator (no excuses!) Dance around your room to your favorite music a couple of times a week. Hold your abs in when you're sitting at that desk, stand on your tippy toes when you're brushing your teeth. Just keep moving!
Start a motivation board on Pinterest
Whenever I feel unmotivated I just take a look at my personal Healthy Living board. It's ideal for saving those inspirational quotes, clean recipes, cute work-out items and more!
Try some pop pilates!
I've been addicted to pilates for at least over a year now, all thanks to the greatness called Blogilates. Cassey Ho, the founder of Blogilates, has such a contagious and inspiring happiness that'll get you through those workouts smiling like a crazy person! There are tons of pilates and cardio videos to fun pop music, monthly work out calenders, meal plans and so much more. Check it out!
When you write down all the stuff you eat every day, you'll have a much better idea or your daily food intake. It will make it much easier to see where you could improve. No cheating! Write down that chocolate mousse you had for dessert. It's not like your journal is gonna tell anyone.
