Being Your Best You: Total Package

Hello and Happy Thursday! 

For the whole month of July there's been a fun Thursday link-up over on my fitness blog along with the wonderful Chelsea and Rebecca

The theme? Being your BEST you!

While this series has been over on Not the Average Bear, I figured my JumpingJE readers/lovers would want in on a little bit of the fun! 

If you haven't already been able to check it out, here's the archives:


For the final day of the month (and of the link-up!) we're going to wrap it all up with what Chelsea calls the "Total Package".  Simply put - what's the best thing you do for yourself to be your BEST?

My secret weapons?

Water and clean eating. Boom.

Ever since I made the wise decision to clean up my eating act (by following 90% paleo) and to give my body the respect it deserves, I've reaped the rewards. 

I function better.
My skin is clearer.
I have more energy.
I have a healthier relationship with food (and the occasional indulgence).
I'm genuinely a happier and better person to be around.
I'm becoming my best version of me (so far!)

Try it, I swear you'll see the same thing. Tell me all about it!

Plus, if you know me... the sweaty selfies also get me through the day :)

water sure does the body good. I have fallen off my water wagon. I went from drink 8 glasses down to 4 glasses.

Great post! It's insane how much food effects our bodies. You eat crap, you feel and look like crap. You eat clean, you feel amazing!

Rock it out girl! You're the total package le duh!

hell yes to clean eating! i've seen so many amazing results just from cutting all that crap out of my diet - namely better skin and wayyyy better sleep.

Isn't it remarkable how much better just drinking water can make you feel?!

I have been such a slacker lately. I need to jump back on the clean eating train! Thanks for the motivation friend :)

Who knew water was so damn good. I struggled so hard when I started eating cleaner. the goal was one gallon a day and now I easily drink way more than that! I actually crave it now!
