Nicole left us with some wonderful tips for working towards a healthier lifestyle and to to help us juggle all of our hats. Here are a few of them:

1. Set reachable goals. Celebrate when you get there. Set the next one. It’s the small steps that will get us there.

2. Fight the media images that impact how we think we should look or be.  We are all different and complex. We need to love ourselves for who we are and be the best that we are meant to be.

3. Use an 80/20 rule with nutrition. Eat great 80% of the time. Healthy eating is bot about perfection.

4. When traveling, take note of where grocery stores are so you can purchase healthy snacks instead of fast food options.
