Spring Cleaning

It's Spring, so that means its time for a little spring cleaning! To get myself ready for spring I usually start prepping myself and this year I'm starting the Spring Cleaning Within :)

So What Am I Doing?

Food Journal -Never thought It was worth the hype, but OMG it is ! Writing down what I eat and drink has made me realize all the stuff I snacked on without even realizing it. I'd def recommend everyone starting one :)

Good Bye Diet Coke - It's now day 4 of me being diet coke free. I know it's not a major accomplishment, but if you knew me - it would be :). I've been keeping myself hydrated with crystal light and Iced tea.

Crystal Light
- I know I already mentioned this in my Kicking the Coke blurb, but I am seriously hooked on the stuff. I buy the large pitcher sizes and the "on the go" packages for adding that something extra to a bottle of water.

Working out with a Trainer.. well Sort of - I recently discovered this great workout series from Woman's Health Magazine - and I think I have decided to start it this week. Its an 8 week program with weekly "workouts" and a videos by a Trainer that give me the personal attention I want... but without the $ I'll let you know in 8 weeks how far along I've come. But if you are interested here's the link

Walking - I'm not much of a runner, never have been and never will be. But I love Walking, so one of my marathon running friends (I so ENVY her energy) gave me a link to this site which allows me to map out my walks. So I can calculate how far I've gone, and how many calories I've burned. It also keeps track of your routines, progress and other walking routes mapped by users nearby. Def worth the few minutes it takes to log in and record all my route info.

I think by just switching a few little things in my daily routine I'll be a lot healthier and have a lot more energy by this summer !

What are your Spring Must Dos?


  1. I really like this post, I'm at the same point where i want to do spring cleaning and I'm so glad you posted this. I'm going to be referring to your links and starting to keep a food journal, i've been snacking way too much lately, my jeans are tighter :(. Thanks! xxNadia

  2. Thanks nadia :)

    These websites are really helpful! The food journal is a must. I found one that is really discreet looking too.

  3. Good post:) I am with you on the walking...I'm not happy that I've let go on a lot of physical activity. All I'm doing now is yoga, but with the good weather I'm taking up walking again. Hope you continue to do posts like these- they are inspiring me to get my butt in shape! :)

  4. @Lotus - thank you :) I will def try to do more of these (to keep us BOTH motivated) :)
