AF Field Colleague Lives Smart

October 21, 2015 03:45 AM
At American Fidelity it’s not just our Home Office Colleagues getting recognized for leading a healthy lifestyle, our field Colleagues make great strides too! “I’m not getting any younger, so I might as well,” that’s all it took for American Fidelity senior account manager Kimberly Weaver to decide to make healthy changes. The bulk of Kimberley’s changes have been in the way she eats and what she eats. She tries to have four to six small meals/snacks a day instead of really big meals. She also tries her best to have her last meal of the day before 7 p.m., 8 at the latest. “If it’s been fried, I stay away from it,” Kimberly said. Kimberly still has a sweet tooth, but tries to limit those to just a couple of times a week. She is about half way to her goal and sometimes feels like she has a long way to go, but she remembers that being consistent is key. Staying on track is challenging, but Kimberly finds she is more likely to get in exercise if she does it right after work. If she goes home first then she is more likely to crash for the evening, so she tries to plan ahead by taking her gym bag with her in the morning. Having a plan for eating also makes all the difference in ensuring she eats healthy. She does her best to have a plan and makes sure to have a protein bar on hand for something easy and healthy to grab when hunger strikes. “It’s always when I don’t take the time to plan out my meals that I wind up grabbing whatever, which is almost always an unhealthy choice.” As Kimberly would say, “start today!”
