One Month of Healthy Changes = Big Results! #DigestiveCare

Getting healthy, losing weight, one month of changes

“Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.” – Doug Firebaugh

A month ago, I decided to get serious about getting back into shape, and living a healthier lifestyle. Yes, this is partly because as the sunshine comes out from behind those winter clouds, I realized that we’ll be opening up our pool for the summer in just a few months. And I want to enjoy it this year – and be able to rock that new bikini I bought. But – I also want to feel good again too, not just look good. I gained so much weight while I was pregnant with Abby, and have quite a bit still to lose. I feel…. Well, not like “Me“, you know?

Smart Solutions = Success!

To finally get myself in gear, I made some big changes to my routine. I started the Nutrisystem plan, which I’m really excited about. I started moving more each day – From morning walks with Abby, to 10 minutes of squats and sit-ups each evening – I’m making time to get in shape. And – I’ve added a great set of tablets to help boost my body, including a great new multi-vitamin, and the amazing 4X Pro-B from Costco.com. I’ve had IBS for years, and tend to have a lot of tummy troubles. These have made a dramatic difference – and I’m so glad that I finally listened to my doctor, and added these to my diet!

I’m adding more fruits and veggies into my diet too – which is another way that I’m helping my whole body, including digestive system, run more efficiently. I’ve also added the Chobani yogurts as my afternoon snack, since like the 4X Pro-B, they contain helpful probiotics. I seriously feel lighter, cleaner, and more energetic. Such a big difference in just 4 weeks, which is pretty darn impressive. I really didn’t expect to feel so much better so quickly.

I want to help encourage a healthy attitude towards food and exercise in Abby too. So I bought these stinkin’ adorable little sneakers for her, and she’s been coming out to play basket ball with us in the evenings. So much fun! She says, “Catch? Catch??” She’ll be 2 in July, but is getting to be such a big girl already :) I love that her favorite snack is grapes, her favorite new word is “outside”, and her favorite thing to do is go for a walk with momma. She’s off to a great start to a healthy, happy life. And that’s my biggest goal – To set a great example that leads her to happiness.

    All of this sounds like something I should be doing. I’ll try to keep reading your stuff until I catch on. Don’t know if I can find all of the things you mentioned locally but I’ll try. The food trays look delish. I really need something to get me going again. Had 2 major surgeries in March of 2010 and came out of hospital with some serious complications. Maybe this will help. Wish me well Meagan

  2. Good luck on your Nutrisystem journey! :)

    Sounds like you’re heading down the healthy road with your 4X and “cleaner” eating…yay! :)

  3. Meagan, you are a blog post “rock star”. You totally nailed this! Awesome!
