For those who are above the age of 24, have you noticed a BIG change? Do you find that the ridiculous things you used to do (and eat) aren’t the same now?
I feel like the day I turned 25, I was in denial and still tried to live like a 20 year old. I still drank shots!? I would eat McDonald’s or a Starbucks as a regular. A 2 mile run was kind of tough, but I could make myself do it. Denial.
Now, the day I turned 26… the world for me totally changed. That daily Starbucks and weekly visits to McDonald’s started to really show. Jeans are getting too tight and uncomfortable. I feel gross after eating fast food. I do not even dare to drink shots…ever.
Living a healthier life actually takes a lot of work in your mid-20’s.
Calorie counting is a real thing. Pinning workouts for your butt is very much real. You need a solid daily skin and hair routine. Your mid-20’s can feel like another full-time job.
So, what do we do now? Here are 3 things I am working on:
Choosing healthy foods. No more late night snacking and weekly runs to McDonald’s. I eat a majority of my meals in the daytime and save the snacking between lunch and dinner. I am becoming a regular at Whole Foods and eating more fruit, veggies, and salmon than ever.
Going to the gym. I have joined Anytime Fitness up in Glenwood Springs and it has everything I need. Treadmills for my cardio, lots of space for an workouts, and their online app provides me with daily workouts and weekly goals.
Drinking way less. Don’t get me wrong, I love an old-fashioned when I can get my hands on one. But now, I drink 1 or 2 drinks and call it a night, Water is my true BFF! I’ll take “shots” when I want to pretend to be 21 again (so call me up in your birthday).
What do you do now that you’re in your infamous mid-20’s?
Any better tips?
