I think creativity is a BIG part of living a healthy life, losing weight, and staying motivated with your exercise and eating routines.
Creativity in your diet...eating the same foods can be awfully boring if you let it. You will want to toss your broccoli out every time you look at it if you eat it the same bland way every time. That just gets old.
Creativity in your exercise...nobody likes to do the same thing day in and day out. You HAVE to mix it up. Mix it up for your sanity and for your progression. I am a huge believer in muscle confusion. Doing the same things will only help your body become really efficient at burning the least amount of calories to do the same things. Keep your body guessing.
Creativity in your motivational methods...try new exercises, go to a different class, add some hills to your workout, go hiking, rollerblade, try swimming, throw in a circuit workout, mix up the music you are listening to, set new goals every week...there are SO many ways to keep changing things up. You should never get bored!
Some of my BEST creations have come from my creativity.
and my Fiesta Chicken Salad to name a few...
It might not always turn out...remember the steel cut oats/whey protein incident? Yikes...
So...break your mold! Get creative! Try something new and find a great new love that you can add to your list of favorite foods or great workouts! What are some of your favorite experiments that turned into a great favorite?? I'd love new recipe links!
