I now have to confess. I am a healthy eater. In fact, in my office I am pretty famous for eating healthy snack foods on a daily basis. Even on Saturdays I choose to eat healthy; granted, Sundays are my cheat days and I eat whatever I want then. That aside however, I like to take care of myself and eat the right types of foods to reach my fitness goals. Simply because I enjoy it! That is the only way to approaching living a healthy lifestyle; you have to have fun with it. If it ever feels like a chore to you, either you are doing something wrong or it is just not for you. But if you are just starting out with a healthy meal plan as a first step, I recommend including healthy snack foods as part of your diet. This is how I began my journey to a healthy lifestyle; I started by taking a look at what I ate on a daily basis – which I admit, was definitely not good – and decided to change it.
Once I chose what foods I would eat, which included low fat snacks, and what foods to avoid, I also picked up the habit of eating said foods in controlled portions every couple of hours. What does eating controlled portions do? With the right types of foods, controlled portions will keep you feeling full for longer and fight off the need to snack on unhealthy foods. And by eating controlled portions every couple of hours, you ramp up your metabolism, which is extremely vital in changing fat into muscle. After a short amount of time I had already began to both feel and see the results of my new eating regimen. That said however, eating healthy snack foods in portions is only one part of the regimen; I also exercise. Namely, I go to the gym, lift weights, and do some cardio. Unless you have a naturally high metabolism you are going to need that extra kick that working out gives your metabolism in order to lose weight and burn fat. The best advice I could give is to never just count calories and never just eat anything you want and expect spending hours in the gym to get you to where you want to be. You need the right balance of healthy eating and working out to be truly effective. That’s why they offer amazing low fat snacks that you can actually enjoy eating!
Think about what skills you have learned through blogging. How could you then empower other businesses to do the same and improve their visibility? If we had the time we could easily organize and manage blogger brand campaigns. We know how to make them work best. There are plenty of these groups popping up now that manage these types of relationships for travel bloggers. There are plenty of mobile travel agencies. Travel blogger Chris from Backpacker Banter has just launched Epic Gap Year which acts like an online travel agency for epic experiences around the world. You could become your own tour guide. Wandering Earl offers group tours around the world. As a seasoned traveller, he is more than experienced in showing people how to have similar experiences to what he does. The Planet D and Gary Arndt have also hosted tours. Would love to fulfill my dreams of being on Getaway. Love to have my own film crew following me around so I could just enjoy the adventure and relax! Our friends from Places We Go do this! This is not an exhausted list of income streams. There are others creating and doing different projects all the time. It will be up to you to decide where your focus should be.
- Post-Work Happy Hour
- Medicines, vitamins, and supplements that you take. Include how much and how often you take them
- Have fewer than 16 grams of added sugar in your typical day
- Teach children other ways to deal with negative emotions e.g. talking, exercise etc
- Always lay the table for dinner
We lived on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland for 18 months back in 2006-07, in Mooloolaba, which is only a 40-minute drive from Noosa. But we only visited Noosa once or twice and could never quite get why it was one of Australia’s, and the world’s, most sought-after holiday destinations. Maybe because we only walked up and down Hastings Street, which was always crowded on the weekends and parking a headache, and we never explored the rest of the town and surrounding natural environment. We could tell Noosa was stylish and Hastings street trendy with its alfresco restaurants and chic cafe scene, and we’d heard about the surrounding beaches and national park. But, you know, we were happy with our lot in Moolooaba. However, we finally gave Noosa another chance and stayed for three nights on our trip around Australia. Whilst our stay was brief, we now get it. We now understand why celebrities and others rave about it so much and if you visit you’ll probably be singing its praises too! Things to do in Noosa, Sunshine Coast1. It’s the National Park that elevated Noosa to a place that’s worth visiting for me.
Before I discovered that, I thought Noosa was overhyped and overpriced. It’s a really beautiful walk and if you crane your neck on your hike, you might just spot a koala or two – Noosa National Park is a favoured home of theirs. On another day, we walked into Noosa National Park from the opposite entrance at Sunshine Beach, a short dfrom form Noosa, with sweeping views down the coast. And we saw our first whale for the season breaching just off shore. Noosa is a world famous surfing destination, and Main Beach right in town is a favourite spot for locals to surf the clean waves, and for beginners to get a surfing lesson. Or, take out a paddle-board or boogie board. Noosa Main Beach is one of the only north-facing beaches on the east coast of Australia, and becasue it’s sheltered with gentle waves it makes for a family friendly beach.
