Make Plans, Not Resolutions

It's a fact that many New Year's Resolutions don't make it past the second month.  Armed with these statistics you should choose to 

I have never really been a big believer in New Year's Resolutions. Why? Not sure. I guess I've just felt if you want to make a change in your life you just DO IT! And waiting until the date of January 1st just seems silly. But, as the date of January 1st is quickly approaching you can make the conscious choice to make a change. Pick YOUR day, and make a change to be a healthier YOU!

 I decided in October of 2010 to make a change. I took it day by day and here I am over a year later in a better, healthier place. Changing a lifetime of habits isn't easy, but it isn't impossible. That HOPE alone should give you motivation to move forward.

Instead of focusing on the things you SHOULDN'T do, you should really focus on the things you SHOULD do.

Eat more {fresh} fruits and vegetables.
Exercise weekly.
Drink more water.
Get to know your food by reading labels.
Eat more UNrefined foods.
Avoid Trans Fats at ALL costs.
Limit Saturated Fats.

Get out your calendars and make plans, not resolutions. Lay foundations instead of boundaries. Get excited about food.  Embrace foods you've never tried. Take a cooking class.  Get educated about your food.

If you are ready or in need of a change, TODAY could be your day. You decide. Your life is in YOUR hands.  Go grab any Tosca Reno book at the library or bookstore and start reading.  You are stronger than you realize.

"If you don't do what's best for your body, you're the one who comes up on the short end." -Julius Erving

Best Wishes for a HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
