Ali Landry, TV personality, mom and chocolate-lover, is sharing tips with us for finding balance in life – especially when it comes to balancing a healthy lifestyle and time with her kids amongst a busy schedule. It’s incredible how much this mom of 2 accomplishes and still manages to keep herself in great shape! Plus lets face it… don’t you love to hear that someone else is munching a chocolate before they go to bed !
Ali shared with us her tips on balancing a healthy lifestyle for a new mom. “It really is a balance! For the most part, both my husband and I lead very healthy lifestyles, but we do have our indulgences as well. We love food, wine and dessert, but because we have a balanced diet we allow ourselves those simple pleasures.
- Drink lots of water. It keeps me hydrated, it keeps my hair and skin looking healthy and it keeps me fuller for a longer period of time. I always carry a 76oz bottle with me wherever I go, knowing that I have to have it finished by the end of the day.
- I also eat very healthy during the week, so if I have a dinner party where I may splurge or if I am craving dessert (like chocolate), I don’t have to feel guilty.
- I try not to skip meals. It’s very easy to do so when you are busy and running around with the children so I keep healthy snacks like almonds or a piece of fruit in my purse or diaper bag at all times.
