Today is January 2. It’s a brand new year and we are all capable of great things.
I am not setting resolutions. (Actually, that’s not true – my only New Year’s resolution is to swear less – sooooo…..we’ll see how that one goes.) This year I am going to set new goals for myself. I am going to aim higher and I am going to accomplish more.
At the start of every January many people set resolutions for the new year. At the top of the list of New Year’s resolutions for millions of people around the globe is “lose weight”. Variations of that resolution are: go on a diet, join a gym, go to the gym, exercise, eat healthy, etc.
Gym memberships in January skyrocket each year. And by the start of February the number of attendees sadly dwindle.
We all want to be healthier. And that means something different to each and every one of us. But the truth is, to live a healthier life you have to incorporate healthier eating habits and exercise (check my previous post for the Rules for Healthy Living).
And for the next 30 days I am going to help motivate you to stick with your new healthier habits. Because, let’s face it, you’re likely going to want to quit. There will come a day when you’ll decide you don’t want to workout any longer. And days when you’re going to want to chow down on all kinds of garbage and decide you’re tired of salad and quinoa and smoothies. And there will be days when you just won’t want to drink your water (and may reach for something sweet and sugary instead).
So, in order to help you get past the first month of 2016 and stick with your “resolution” I am aiming to fill your inbox with goodness and motivation and encouragement because this will be the year your life will change — for the better.
