Does this scenario sound familiar?
You decide to go on a big health kick and “clean up” your lifestyle – and that means getting rid of things. Maybe it’s certain foods (or even food groups) … or maybe it’s “activities” you decide to STOP doing (happy hour, TV binges, etc.).

What if you flipped that script around and looked at it as UPGRADING your life instead?
This little mindset trick can turn a negative outlook into a fun and positive one that helps you create habits you will stick with and actually ENJOY!

- Instead of cutting out all “carbs” like bread or pasta, upgrade to nutrient-dense options like sweet potatoes or fiber-rich pasta made with chickpea flour.
- Instead of trudging through your usual cardio machine workout routine, join a fun class online to have more fun and get even better results.
It’s all about finding ways to switch up what you’re doing NOW for something that actually adds value to your life and helps you move forward.
