7 Easy Tips To Lose Weight Healthily

As someone who's always trying to be healthier and lose weight, I know how hard it can be to stay on a strict diet. Basically, restricting myself never works, and it's way better to enjoy everything in moderation. Instead, here are seven easy tips to help you be healthier without eating only vegetables.

1. Reduce your intake of carbs and sugar

Obviously, carbs and sugar are two of the most amazing things in this world, so I understand how hard it is to cut them out of your diet completely. Which is why a more realistic way of going about this is just to slowly reduce how much you eat of these types of foods.

2. Try a calorie tracker app

Giphy

There are a bunch of apps that track how many calories you eat in a day and keep you on track based on your body type and how much weight you want to lose. These can help stop you from overeating, just remember not to eat fewer calories than you should be!

3. Work out a few times a week

Giphy

Most people don't have the time to work out every day, but working out two or three times a week can still make a difference. Also, if you don't belong to a gym, there are a lot of fitness YouTube videos that you can follow.

4. Figure out a workout plan that works for you

Giphy

One of the most important parts of working out is figuring out what works for you. Sometimes certain workouts are great for other people, but just don't work for you. If something hurts, try to find an alternative for it, or, if you're using a machine with weights, start low and work your way up over time.

5. Drink lots of water

Giphy

This one is pretty obvious. According to health authorities, the average person should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

6. Try healthier desserts

Giphy

Fruit, yogurt and granola, and low-calorie ice creams like Halo Top are all great alternatives for traditional desserts.

7. Remember it's okay to have a cheat meal

Giphy

The most important thing to remember is not to fall off the wagon completely if you indulge in a cheat meal. It's okay to eat whatever you want in moderation!

It's important to remember that not everybody will react to the same diet or workout plan in the same way. It really depends on your body and what you feel works for you because everybody's body is different! Never continue with a diet or workout plan if it's harming you in any way, mental or physical.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
