Help! Living with Unhealthy People!

My friend and I were having a conversation the other day about how difficult it is to stay committed to healthy eating habits when you live with people who frankly don’t care about their health.

It’s hard to avoid the stacks of junk food in the cabinets and leftover pizza in the fridge. The most vulnerable moments are usually after a hard day at work or any time you’re looking for something easy to grab to eat.

BUT I have learned, that like anything, it’s all a mental game. You have to tell yourself no! Remind yourself how hard you have worked for your body to be healthy before you grab a donut from that box on the counter. I went as far as labeling a shelf in the cabinets and fridge to remind myself what food I can grab to eat and what I need to avoid. A little over the top, I know, but it’s worked for me so far!

Hopefully I can eventually motivate the people I live with to start taking care of their bodies! I’m sure my weekly meal preps overwhelm them though! Please share any motivational tips you have on this subject. I would love to share with my friends!

2014 California Fun Runs

I love to run, especially if it is for a great cause or simply just for fun! This year I have completed two 5k runs: the Color Vibe 5k Run in Pomona, CA to support the Alzheimer’s Association and the Rock N’ Reggae Charity 5k in Pasadena, CA to support NextStep.

Below is a list of upcoming California 5k and obstacle course fun runs that I am interested in. Simply click on a logo for more information. Hope to see you there!
