So, like I said in the last post, it's the New Year!
Second chances. Start overs. New goals. Resolutions.
We all have them. We all want them. We all want to succeed.
The first thing to NOT DO is over load ourselves.
You know what you can do, and you know your body more than anyone.
Something that works for me is to start small, and make it a habit.
Once it's a habit, move on to the next goal.
I have come up with 5 goals that are absolutely, not only achievable, but once you get these down, you can't help but make them into habits for hopefully the rest of your life.
Here we go...
1-Get rid of everything white in your pantry and replace it with WHOLE WHEAT. Can't even begin to tell you the benefits your body will receive, and nutrients.
2-Always, always get in the habit of buying water bottles. Once you buy them, you will never be able to go without. And water is the healthiest thing you can put in your body.
3-Get rid of Butter and get rid of SALT cold turkey. Cut them off. These are the 2 things that catch up with people more than I can ever begin to describe. I promise you, your body will thank you, not just now, but 30 years from now when you don't have to go on medications to fix it.
Use substitutions. Smart Balance is the number one recommended for replacement of Butter, and Salt-well, there are already so many natural Salts in Vegetables you don't even need it. Get your mouth in the habit of tasting things, instead of becoming numb to thinking it needs more taste.
4-Make sure to never ever leave the grocery store without buying 3 kinds of FRUITS and 4 kinds of VEGETABLES.
5-and last but certainly not least.....EAT BREAKFAST EVERY DAY!!!
~and just like Jillian Michael's said herself in an interview on Jay Leno, "exersice is good, but diet and nutrition are essential for maintaining weight and losing weight."
***For some future posts, I want to hear what everyone's New Year's Goals are.
What are you working at? What are you changing? Don't be shy.
Don't keep those incredible goals all to yourself:).
Let's hear what everyone is doing and how so we can all benefit from them!
