How to Start Eating Healthier ~ Wife Edition
Thank Goodness it’s time to get this Healthier WifeLife Par-tay started. I’m ready to get a restart on how to start eating healthier and get the pep back in my step. It’s day #1 and I promised I’d give you the lowdown of how each day goes – A Day in the Life of a Wife (complete with VIDEO below) – that’s keeping her health on track and helping friends do the same. Are you along for the ride?
Let’s do this!
How to Start Eating Healthier Day #1
The day started out wild the moment that my feet hit the floor. I remember thinking a couple times today that if I wasn’t intentional and constantly thinking about how to start eating healthier, my day would have fallen apart by 10:30 a.m.
Remembering that many of you need this as much as me and knowing that this system works pushed me to do better today. I have a quick video recap of the day below but here’s the breakdown:
I drank my warm, Vitamin B drink slowly and enjoyed it. I took two probiotics out of the herbal cleanse packet (just showing you the brands I think are the best quality if you are going to supplement – totally my opinion). You are welcome to read about them at those links just to know what they are and why I take them (aff). I waited thirty minutes before moving on to breakfast to give those two things time to do their jobs.

One serving of unsalted nuts and a serving of seedless grapes. Keeping it simple for snack time is a lifesaver. I don’t have time or energy to put into preparing a snack at this time. I’m sure you don’t either. Just mix a healthy protein & fruit. Proteins that are easy like peanut butter (with as little sugar and salt as you can find – or almond butter), Seeds, Nuts, Boiled Eggs, Rice Cake w/Nut Butter. Veggies are welcome any time also.

Today, I threw some steak in the skillet. I cooked the steak in coconut oil (unflavored) and removed to a plate. I added the a bag of frozen stirfry veggies in the skillet with a little coconut oil, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. When the veggies came to a boil, I turned them down to low, covered them and cooked for eight minutes. I threw the cooked steak in at the last minute to soak up the juices and called it a meal.
Like I speak about in the video below, I grabbed a bag of almonds and a large bottle of water before hitting the door. It was a total lifesaver. Instead of starving at the game or giving in to Nachos at the concession stand, I was good.
I came home and warmed up my steak stir fry which was delicious. Whole grain brown rice and quinoa could have been added to this meal but I wasn’t that hungry. It’s after dinner now (lots later) and I’m still not hungry. I was supposed to take two Omega 3 vitamins but forgot to. Ooops!
I drank about 84 ounces of water today. Woo Hoo! Could have been more but I’m pleased with that! How much did you drink?
I’m about to hit the hay, but first I’m going to take the p.m. vitamins from the herbal cleanse packet. I know taking it this late WITH water is going to make me have to wake up during the night to potty. That’s something I never do … unless I drink water right before bed. Tomorrow night I will try to remember to take this nighttime vitamin a little earlier.
Before I go, here’s the Day in the Life of a Healthier Wife (catchy, huh? lol) Vlog of how to start eating healthier…..
How did you do today? Be intentional friend and be strong. We can do this!
