Over the last year, I’ve worked really hard to change my lifestyle. Life’s about balance and I’m all for it. To me, being healthy isn’t about intense diets or quick fixes. It’s about the small steps that wind up making a big difference. I’m also naturally petite and for most of my life, I haven’t really thought about what’s good for my health. I’m lucky to have a quick metabolism, but hey, we’re all the same on the inside, right?

Enter Shawn. He’s a big book guy, a big guitar guy, a big hair guy – but, surprise, surprise. He’s also a big multivitamin guy. I wasn’t really into it at first, but now I take a Centrum multivitamin every morning – it helps support my health goals.

I’m really trying to stick to a routine – having a multivitamin each day, eating healthy and getting regular exercise. I guess you could say I have a little more motivation now. Shawn and I haven’t set a wedding date just yet, but we’ve been bouncing around ideas and it’s in our cards for the near future. Recently, a lot of my friends have gotten married and as much as a bride wants to look her best, it’s just as important that she FEELS her best. Sign me up.

On top of taking a multivitamin daily, I’ve been eating very healthy. I try and have four meals a day and they usually consist of egg whites, toast with almond butter, fruit, chicken salad, chicken tacos, protein shakes and lots of veggies. I eat as much raw sushi as I can (and stay away from the sodium packed soy sauce). I also eat a lot of salmon and I try not to eat carbs too late in the evening. Oh, yes. I also have wine a few times a week. Wine and dark chocolate are my guilty pleasures and then at least once a week I will eat a cheat meal – a big bacon cheeseburger, pancakes, waffles or a big bowl of pasta. Remember that thing I said about balance? I live by it.

But what’s a healthy lifestyle without exercise?! It helps that my fiancé and a close girlfriend are trainers. Erin Oprea is a good friend from Nashville and has been helping me maintain a healthy lifestyle (and really kicking my butt!). She also trains Carrie Underwood, Jana Kramer and Kelsie Ballerini. I work out four times a week with either Erin or Shawn – and if I want to shake it up, I do a spin class. I’m also kind of hooked on my FitBit. Usually, I try and reach 10k steps per day #goals.

I know it won’t be long until I’m in a white dress, so I’m taking my lifestyle choices pretty seriously. It’s not just to look good, but it’s to feel amazing when I walk down that aisle.

    I’ve started taking a multivitamin and fish oil supplements over the last few months and I really do feel like they’re super helpful! And, I take the gummy kind so it almost feels like candy that’s good for you! 🙂

    I know you’ve mentioned your protein shake recipes before but I can’t remember what the protein powder is that you use. Can you share that info again?

    You should try taking a biotin supplement every day as well as the multivitamin! It works for your hair, skin and nails. I started trying it out and within about 2 weeks I noticed my hair looking shinier and my skin brighter. Can’t live without it now! Love you!
