I'm on a mission to incorporate more wholesome choices into my daily life such as walking, cooking and eating healthier meals. I'm even open to trying new forms of exercise, such as taking a zumba class. Last week, I wrote a post about my excitement about partnering with McDonald’s on their Wholesome Choices Blogger Program! I've not only teamed up with McDonald's, but also my twin brother, Joshua Marable to share our journey to a wholesome lifestyle.
After meeting fitness expert, Andrea Riggs, I'm more motivated to get back into shape. Last week was very productive! I walked twice during lunchtime with my walking buddy at work (around Georgia Tech's campus), and brought my lunch to work three days out of the work week. I've seen my weight fluctuate over the years and now more than ever I'm determined to make more conscious choices when choosing foods.
McDonald's has great-tasting meals for less than 600 calories each. Did you know that you can now eat breakfast after midnight at McDonald's? McDonald’s is committed to giving us more delicious choices to feel good about in the months and years to come. Regardless of your dietary needs, you’ll find nutrient-minded choices at McDonald’s. Here are some simple steps to cut calories:
