So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!
Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!
Right now, It's Sunday Night, I just finished grocery shopping, washing my veggies, steaming, roasting, peeling, chopping, meal prepping, and having a cup of detox tea. This starts tomorrow and my good friend Keonna told me that being prepared is the key so I'm taking tonight to do just that.
I am also incorporating intermittent fasting into the eating plan mix. I've been doing intermittent fasting for about 3 months off and on, so that part will be a little easier for me. I've seen amazing results with IF and of course "results = motivation!!" You can check out my IF experience in a future blog post that I plan to write over the holiday break. Intermittent Fasting is an eating pattern where you have an eating window with is usually 8 hours of time (some people do 6 hours) and then you allow your body to rest from food for the remaining 16 hours of a 24 hours day. (I know you wish there were more than 24 hours in a day but........ I digress, LOL) Now, of those 16 hours that are remaining after your eating window closes, you should be sleep at least 8 of those. And that, my friend, is what makes IF so easy to follow. One of my favorite YouTubers to discuss IF is Dr. Eric Berg, DC. I'll post one of his videos below.
I AM SO EXCITED and happy that you will be following my journey to New Years Eve!! Let's see what happens!!!
~ Drink half my body weaight in water every day
~ Go to the gym at least 3-4 days a week
~ Drink a cup of detox tea every morning
~ Incorporate more prayer and meditation with my Intermittent Fasting
