cannned-heat asked: Sierra! I'm an 18 year old adventure seeking girl from Canada and just want to tell you what an inspiration you are. I love skiing, skating, and would love to one day try surfing as well. Your posts on instagram always keep me hyped, you're so coo! How do you manage to stay dedicated to the healthy and wholesome diet and stay away from junk foods? And what's your take on alcohol? Those are the most detrimental things in my lifestyle that I'm working on eliminating, it's hard! Advice?
Why Hello! Thanks so much for the kind words. Glad my adventures are fueling your stoke! I am stoked you are conscious about a healthy lifestyle! I find so much passion in food. I love feeling good and notice how much my diet directly correlates to my physical and emotional state. I put a LOT of love and dedication in to food and I truly believe it pays off. When I’m home I budget towards all organic foods (bulk sections and certain seasonal produce are actually quite affordable) and invest time in to preparation. I love creating so food has become an art for me. Instead of focusing on avoiding junk foods I focus on thinking about all the incredible, nutritious and delicious foods I get to put in my body. Every day becomes an amazing challenge to become more in tune with exactly what my body needs to perform and feel amazing.
As far as alcohol… ya know, it’s just really not good for you. I used to love to “party” and couldn’t understand how someone could ever cut that part of life out. But now that I drink very seldomly I find that I have SO much more energy and time to truly party - on the mountain, first chair to last chair, on that extra skate lap, the extra long surf session of the day. The bottom line is that you can ingest a substance to feel high or you can find that energy inside of you.
I agree with you, living a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy - sometimes its easier to just hop on the band wagon with your friends and go for pizza and beer, but ultimately the reward for the discipline is so incredible! Let me know how it goes. Lots of love on your journey! xox Sierra
