I cannot seem to get enough fruit and veggies lately. They are fresh and colorful, I’ve been eating cataloupe like candy lately. And that’s a good thing. A cup of cantaloupe is around 60-70 calories. It’s a yummy thing to fill up on, and it’s packed with vitamins! Since I’ve been incorportating more of these items into my diet (and less complex carbs) – I have felt more energetic, less “heavy” (more “light” – i.e., less weighed down), and seen healthier changes in other aspects of my life.

Incorportating these fruits and veggies have been relatively easy for me. It was just a matter of having them in my house. They are so easy to grab now that I have a variety of fruits and vegetables around my house. And every week I have something new and different (there is so much variety!). It makes packing a lunch a breeze, and the tastes are vibrant and fresh.

Just cutting up an apple for a side dish with dinner, grabbing a bagged salad for a fast pairing, throwing copped up peppers and corn into beans for zesty burritos, throwing sweet peas into a fresh potato soup, or roasting veggies to add to pasta. The possibilities are truly endless!

I have also been enjoying (and pushing myself to) drinking more water. It’s not always easy, sometimes I just want flavor. So I throw a slice of lemon, cucumber, or even melon. It’s refreshing, and I’ve noticed how much smoother my body functions when it’s well hydrated. I still enjoy my coffee and tea, but nothing hydrates the body like water. By making it a priority, I’ve made my health a priority.

Start your love affair with fruits and veggies (and water) today! I guarantee you’ll thank yourself for it (and your body will too)!

Lunch came early today- I ate at about 11 am. I had a PB&J on homemade honey wheat bread (made by my sweetie’s grandmother!). I also had a palmful of dry roasted Starbuck’s cashews (that were super expensive! Almost $2.00 for a small bag). I think I am going to have a little bit more in just a tiny bit once the hungries comeback. I am still drinking water, slowly but surely. I finished most of my second coffee but the exhaustion is setting in. I am frustrated with all the work I have to do and so here are some tips for getting through the work day, ’cause let’s face it – we aren’t all cut out for a desk job. Sometimes I feel downright lethargic, and worn out (from sitting!). Here some things I do to make the day go a little better when I am ancy and tired.

Desk Ridden Tips:
1) Take a deep breath, when things are not “fun” – think about something fun upcoming in your future that you are looking forward to.
2) Get up and move! Jog up the stairs (if you have them) or take a walk around the building. The fresh air will wake you up and give you that extra jolt caffeine can’t/won’t give you.
3) Listening to music. I wrote a report in college about how music can help with productivity and calm people down. Listen to your favorite tunes!
4) Chat with a co-worker – it’s good to talk about “reality” sometimes outside of “work, work, work” chat.
5) Drink water – it helps you feel…fresh! When you’re feeling sluggish, chug some water. Always keep a (full) water bottle on your desk.
6) Dealing with a cranky co-worker? (I do quite a bit!) Try to look at things from their perspective (maybe they’ve got something hard going on in their personal life? Or they are feeling ill?) Take everything with a grain of salt and thank God for your blessings!
