In today’s fast-paced and fast-food world, it’s not easy to choose foods that are best to nourish our bodies. True, it takes some willpower to change any habit – especially eating habits – but it certainly can be done.
Personally, when it comes to food, I try to be intentional and disciplined by planning my meals in advance and keeping a daily food journal (to keep track of what I eat). I know that creating new habits (both good and bad) takes time. But the good news is that, making gradual, small changes like replacing your daily afternoon high calorie snack or dessert with a healthier sweet snack can make a lot of difference overtime. I know! Because I’ve done it and it really is possible!
Another area in my life that I’ve been focusing on is my fitness. So when I was offered to serve as a Fit Foodie Ambassador again this year, I jumped at the chance right away!
If you’ve never been to a Fit Foodie Run race event before, you’re definitely missing out! This is a one-of-a-kind race event where food meets fitness… where you can RUN. EAT. DRINK.
My husband and I enjoyed participating in this amazing event filled with food, fitness and fun!
Speaking of food, I’m not just talking about any food. I’m talking about the most mouth-watering, delicious and healthy foods at the John Hancock Vitality Village complete with cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs, including former “Top Chef” contestant Jennifer Carroll. We enjoyed food and drink samples ranging from healthy snack bars, to decadent indulgences, mini fitness classes led by acclaimed professionals, swag bag chock-full of goodies from top health and wellness brands, post race celebratory drinks and more!
John Hancock Hosts the Cooking Light & Health Fit Foodie Race Weekend and as host, they sponsored the John Hancock Vitality Village, where race participants could partake in the ultimate post-race experience that rewards a job well done and celebrates the hard work they do through delicious and healthy experiences.
It’s no secret that good nutrition plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight. Sure, you can engage in as many physical activities as you want, but if you don’t combine fitness with good nutrition, your efforts towards staying healthy or trying to maintain a healthy weight won’t be nearly effective as when you combine the two.
John Hancock recognizes that making healthy choices every day can put you on the road to living a longer, healthier life and has created John Hancock life insurance with Vitality. Small changes in your habits daily like taking the stairs instead of taking the elevator, or making healthy choices, like exercising, seeing the doctor, and purchasing healthy foods at the grocery store, can indeed have a big impact on your overall well-being.
With John Hancock Vitality and the new HealthyFood program, you get rewarded for the healthy food choices you make every day with real-time discounts and/or cash-back up to $600 a year on their grocery bills, and program points that lead to savings on their annual premiums — as much as 15 percent!
