Do you take care of yourself? Sometimes I am the last person I think about! NOT good! Especially, since I want to live a healthy, active and “feel gooder” lifestyle! So today’s PRACTICALLY SPEAKING is all about how we can create a few non -negotiable habits that will help us take good care of US as we get on with our on-the-go busy lives! And I have a very chic and healthy giveaway I think you’ll love including my new favorite healthy snack bars, Simply Perfect bars!
This post is sponsored by Zone Perfect. I think they are a great on-the-go snack and the opinions are 100% mine!
My lifestyle find me on the go more often than I would like. And if I’m not careful I can fall into some unhealthy pitfalls like eating junk when I’m hungry or grabbing sugary drinks if left to my own devices! Let’s be healthy even, and especially, when we are away from our homes!
This is almost always the first and very best things you can do to ensure success in all areas of our lives! And maintaining healthy habits when we lead such busy lifestyles is all about planning. PLAN to make some healthy changes so that we don’t get stuck making bad choices because we are out and about and are thirsty or hungry or tired!
I make myself a little checklist of things I want to take when I’m going to be away from home like…
TAKE A BIG CONTAINER OF WATER
I take a big water bottle with me whenever I go anywhere. Keeping hydrated is so so important. Did you know that many times when you feel tired (given you have had a good night’s sleep) your body is telling you that you need to hydrate? It’s true!
And don’t buy flavored water! Make your own! Easy-peasy! Use mint, lemon, fruit, herbs. So much better for you!
I have a bright pink, blender bottle. I’m not much of a breakfast eater, so the blender ball comes in handy when I’m making a protein shake in it!
GRAB A HEALTHY SNACK
Don’t leave home without this!!! A healthy snack can squelch the munchies, give you much needed energy and in my case ward off headaches. Make a decision before you go out that you WILL NOT buckle under and eat any unhealthy snack or junk food. Carry something delicious with you!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these Perfectly Simple bars from Zone Perfect! They are full of good for us real food, taste scrumptious, are packed with protein ( I need this!), keeps me full longer, less than 200 calories, gluten free, are so portable and have that little chewiness I crave!!! Pretty fabulous for one great tasting snack!
I’ve been eating them for breakfast. They are wonderful with a cup of coffee! Or crumbles over a cup of yogurt.
Here’s the flavors I love…ALMOND TOFFEE CRUNCH, BING CHERRY AND ALMOND, OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHUNK AND ROASTED CASHEW AND DARK CHOCOLATE! Oh, Yummy!

TAKE EXTRA MEDS, SUPPLEMENTS OR VITAMINS WITH YOU
This tip is not just for us who need daily meds. It’s also important to remember to take your supplements and vitamins too! I keep a day’s worth of these in a little plastic box and take them with me. So, if I forget to take any of them at home… and am out all day I have them on hand. Smart!!!
CREATE A GRAB-AND-GO-BAG
Take all the tips above and put them in a GRAB-AND-GO bag and take it out the door with you. I used to take a bag full of things that my kiddos needed when we went out… I don’t know why I stopped! Now, I have a small bag to keep my water, Perfectly Simple bars, meds and anything else I’ll need for my on-the-go life. I keep my car/house keys in it so I remember to take it with me!
What do you do to keep healthy and make good choices when you are on the run? I’d love to hear your ideas!!! I bet you have great ones!
Now, let’s have a…
