Making lifestyle changes can be exciting, but can be just as overwhelming. The key to success starts with keeping your goals small & detailed, and taking the changes on one at a time. Don’t try to do everything at once. Small, consistent changes add up! (I still continue to remind myself of this regularly, so you’re not alone)

I’ve put together a few of my favorite beginner tips to help you stay on track:

  • Kick-start your morning with lemon water
    Drink an 8oz glass of warm/room temperature water with the juice of half a lemon first thing in the morning. Yes, even before the caffeine hits your lips! Why you ask? Here are just some of the key benefits to this easy morning ritual:
