Spring Renewal with MOXIE
View this email in your browser

Spring is the season for renewal. While many of us may have adjusted our lifestyle at the start of the New Year, after a few months the determination begins to fade. Spring is the perfect time fine-tune your focus on living a wellness lifestyle. Make this your healthiest season with these tips:
Enjoy the outdoors. Everyone is eager to get back to longer days, warmer weather, and outdoor activities. We are thankful to live in a beautiful community that offers the great outdoors. Use your new found MOXIE and hike the Hugh Banyon Trail or jog along our beautiful beaches.
Develop an action plan to clean up your eating habits. Don’t diet, cleanse, and hop on any bandwagon of the moment. Just get real with your food and create an action plan to develop better-for-you eating habits that are long lasting. Make a MOXIE Specialized appointment with Cory LeDoux, R.D. to get started.
Consistency and realistic goal setting is key. Schedule your MOXIE group fitness classes every Sunday and add them to your week's calendar. View your classes as an appointment and don't cancel.
Reflect and set achievable goals. A healthier mindset is setting realistic, achievable goals. It is a great feeling to reach a goal. Set realistic goals for the week.

Change it up with MOXIE Specialized. If you are getting bored, try getting outdoors, working out at a different time of day, or scheduling a MOXIE Specialized training session.

MOXIE is committed to helping you achieve a healthier lifestyle that is long lasting. Email us if you have questions about getting started or renewing your focus on wellness.

See you in the studio,
Amanda & Stephanie

Rather than allowing old habits to creep back in, renew your commitment to making healthier choices. Try to focus your nutrition on the health benefits you will receive from eating well rather than placing all of the focus on aesthetic goals. By focusing on your long term health, you will be more likely to stick to your healthy habits. Try these tips to get back on track:
Fill up on vegetables

Vegetables are a low calorie/high volume food.
Take it easy on the fruit
While fruit is a great source of fiber and natural sugar, some people tend to go overboard and eat too much. In turn, this keeps sugar and carbohydrate intake sky high. Rather than ditching fruit all together, try pairing one piece of fruit with almond butter, nuts or a source of lean protein.
Be wary of nutrition/protein bars
While the marketing on most of these products claim these bars are the healthy alternative, most of these bars are high in fat, carbohydrates and artificial preservatives. 
Up the protein
If you feel like you are constantly hungry, try adding a bit more protein to your meals. When ordering a dinner salad, order a serving of lean protein to be placed on top to help you fill up and stay full. Also try eating the protein portion of your meals before having the side items which are usually higher in carbohydrates and fat.
Drink more water
Water aids your body in digestion and keeps your skin looking youthful and hydrated. On days where you are training or outdoors for a period of time, be sure to consume extra water. Drinking 12 ounces of water before your meal will also fill up your stomach and may prevent you from overeating.
