Be (D)etermined to Live a Healthier Lifestyle

♥  Next time you have a craving for something sweet, grab a piece of fruit. ♥ Drop your daily calorie intake drastically by cutting out unnecessary calorie loaded beverages like soda, juice, lattes, frappes,  etc. ♥  You should be averaging at least 10,000 steps a day. Most Americans are way under this goal, so if you can walk it out, do itttt. ♥ White Bread is not your friend. Meet whole grain or wheat bread they are so much cooler. ♥ Jamie Fox may be able to blame it on the alcohol, but YOU should NOT. Don’t let alcohol be the reason you’re unhappy with your weight. The best way to make a change in your eating habits is to start off small. It is not easy to eliminate all the crap we’ve been eating for so long, so start off slow. What are some ways you are staying healthy?

Be (B)eautiful: Health is beautiful. There’s nothing beautiful about destroying your body, even if you do it slowly by neglecting your body. Be (A)uthentic: One of my favorite sites to go to for unique jewelry pieces is http://www.pnkelephant.com! I can’t stop obsessing over these little gems! I love how I can wear them with a casual day look and a more trendy night outfit. How cute are they BG’s?? Be (D)etermined: If there is one thing I can’t stand about people and grammar  it’s when they say: “I could care less“. This statement is incorrect and it means that there actually is some interest!!  The correct statement is “I COULDN’T care less“, which means you pretty much don’t give a damn at all. So next time you’re in an argument I hope the correct statement comes out of your mouth please. 😉

Be (B)eautiful: Taking care of yourself is a must and I love trying new products especially those that are natural/organic handmade. Lush makes nothing but handmade products from all natural ingredients. HEAVEN. Be (A)uthentic: You have to lose some in order to win some. That job you were really hoping for may not have called you back, but an even better opportunity awaits you. When one door closes, another one always opens – all you need is a key. That key is positivity. Be (D)etermined: Be careful who you tell your ambitions/goals to before it comes to fruition b/c not everyone will be happy for you. It’s life and the haters are gonna hate! Though you may be excited – telling too many people will invite unwanted criticism and negativity and you don’t need that.

Be (B)eautiful: Blueberries have been said to help banish belly fat and they are full of antioxidants. So eat them fresh for the best results. (source) Be (A)uthentic: In order to reach your fitness goals you need to be realistic. B.A.D girls have busy lifestyles and we expect results fast. However, it is better to lose weight at a slower pace than trying to lose 20 pounds in 4 weeks. Don’t over exert yourself or start a crazy diet b/c you want to see quick results. Fitness and a healthy lifestyle is just that- it is a LIFESTYLE and you need to change your habits in order to see long-lasting results. Be (D)etermined: So you lost your weight and are happy with your banging body. Now you can go back to your old habits and chill out with the work outs right? The answer is no. Once you shed some pounds or tone up its your job to maintain it. Your body will not maintain its figure on its own. Living a healthy lifestyle is …

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Gandhi

Be (B)eautiful: Being grateful for the things you DO have is essential. Spoiled, selfish, arrogant bitches are not the wave. Be thankful for what is given to you. SAY it. Tell your parents ‘thank you’, your friends ‘thank you’. SHOW it. Give some one a thank you card, bake some cupcakes, get your mom that new lipstick she has been wanting, but hasn’t wanted to spend the money. Do something selfless for someone else who has been so generous towards you. Be (A)uthentic: A BAD girl will eventually forgive, but she wont forget. Don’t waste your time being full of negativity or hatred towards someone. It takes up way too much of your energy and your time is priceless. Whoever hurt you in the first place isn’t worth it. Some things can be repaired and others need to be left alone. So wish them well and MOVE ON. If/when someone asks you about him/her your response should be- “I don’t really care to talk about him/her.” Next topic please. Be (D)etermined: Being healthy is important. …

“Boys are like purses-cute, full of crap and easily replaced.” ~Unknown

Be (B)eautiful: A classic summer/fashion essential is a hot clutch. Clutches dress up any outfit and are truly worn as an accessory much like a bracelet. These are a few of my favorites! I love this clutch to dress up a simple outfit for a night out. You can never go wrong with a splash of pink! This clutch is  my personal fave! It screams I am a  BAD girl and you should be jealous! This Michael Kors clutch is too cute for words. I can see myself rockin’ this with a cute sun dress sippin’ on mimosa’s! Be (A)uthentic: If something is bothering you- the worst thing you can do is bottle it up inside. If it is something that you feel wont be able to just go away on its own then find a healthy way to deal with it. Write it down, vent to a close friend, find a solution.  If it involves another person don’t attack them (verbally or physically), but take a few minutes to gather your thoughts and approach …
