Now that we’re six months into the year, we’re also six months removed from those New Year’s resolutions to take better care of ourselves. In the hustle and bustle of our every day lives, it can be easy to shirk those plans to eat more veggies or hit the gym more often. This six-month mark is the perfect time to reassess and get back on track. To help you maintain your #2019bestlife goals, Alpharetta has you covered with plenty of fun, physical activity along with good-for-you eats and “treat yourself” spas.
Here are our picks for resolution-restoring musts in Awesome Alpharetta:
1. Get moving
If you promised yourself you’d sweat more in 2019, your visit to Alpharetta can definitely bring the heat! Start with two-wheeling good times with Zagster, Alpharetta’s sweet bikeshare situation. You simply download the Zagster app, find your bike, and ride on! Trips lasting fewer than 3 hours are free, and you’ll find plenty of spots around town to drop the bike off when you’re done. Hit the gorgeous Big Creek Greenway, and ride to your heart’s content – or until those quads feel the burn!
If you’re more into a bit of friendly competition, revamp those resolutions with a race! On November 3rd, you can hit your stride during the Alpharetta Women’s Half Marathon and 5K! And if your 2019 plans for the fam include less screen time and more endorphin surges, you can even sign the kiddos up for the IronKids Alpharetta youth triathlon on September 14 and 15! Talk about getting back on track in a big way!
2. Find your fill of nutritious, delicious meals
From sippable cold-pressed juices to scoopable acai bowl and every leafy green in between, healthy dining options abound in Alpharetta. We’re HUGE fans of the Bowl of the Month at Vitality Bowls—a cholesterol-busting blend of Aronia and heart-healthy organic granola. For a refreshing snack, grab a Beet It! Cold-Pressed Juice from Flavor Juicery. The ultra-satisfying mix of apple, beetroot, carrot, and ginger doesn’t just keep you full, it also cleanses your liver and enriches the quality of your blood by building up your red blood cells. Looking for leafy greens to get your lunch (and crunch!) on? Hit up Freshii for the Metaboost Salad, a tasty tossed salad featuring spinach, kale, and field greens topped with creamy goat cheese, almonds, carrots, and edamame. Who says health food has to be bland? With these selections (and more), you’re sure to have enough flavor-packed fuel to power you through your entire day!
