When the girl's and I got together to discuss blog business over the holidays, one of the things we all agreed on is that we all want to be more healthy this year! Personally, I feel very motivated and I feel like if we all encourage each other throughout the year, we can achieve our health goals. Many times we have heard people say that if they just start to live in a more healthy way, weight comes off and they see progress. But, I know that in my case, I need specific goals set that I can work on and change about my eating habits and exercise plan or nothing will ever happen.
Many of us want to lose weight, some of us want to strengthen our core or our upper body strength. Maddy is training for a 1/2 marathon. So, to achieve these goals we each are making plans that will help us reach them. One part of my plan is to cut back on sugar intake and to avoid mindless eating. You know, when you walk by some cookies, pick it up, eat it and THEN remember that you were going to avoid eating sweets and your weren't even hungry anyway?
In 2020 we will be trying to show you a lot of healthier posts when it comes to food, more activities that encourage a healthy lifestyle as well as our DIY posts that you have let us know that you enjoy.
I am going to start this year with these Lighter Blueberry Banana Muffins. The original recipe came from A Sprinkle of Joy, but I tweaked it a bit to lighten it up and give it more banana punch. I replaced the sugar in the muffin with agave nectar, but there is still sugar in the topping. The sweetness of the fruit doesn't let you miss the sugar in these muffins. They were really good!
