NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Happy, Healthy, Vital, New Year! Commit now. Make this your year of healthy living. Yes, you can make a commitment that you can keep. Here are some top tips on how to make them happen.

1. SET ATTAINABLE GOALS.
    Break your goals up into attainable, small, goals, as in weekly, or daily items. (When you accomplish          
    small goals, you are more apt to reach higher.)
    example:  I will drink 5 glasses of water today.
                   I will do cardio intervals 3 times this week.
                   I will pack my healthy lunch, the night before, every day this week.
                   I will add weights to my gym routine.....or circuits, or intervals...etc.

2. SUBSCRIBE TO A HEALTHY COOKING, AND FITNESS MAGAZINE.
     Get inspired with new workouts, fitness gear, and information. Cooking Light Magazine, and Oxygen      
      Magazine can be purchased right here on this site, and are my two favorites.

3. REPLACE NEGATIVE WORDS, WITH HEALTHY, EMPOWERING WORDS.

    Change your inner script. Go from that inner voice saying "I can't because.........." to "I will because.."

     I can't because.....".I'm too tired..".
                               "  I can't afford it..."
                                " I'll do it when I lose weight.."
                                " I tried it before, and it didn't work."

     See the difference these words make in how you feel...
   
     I will because...".I am in charge of my health, and fitness levels."
                             "I am healthy, and not disabled"
                             "I know this is the way to prepare my body for a vital future"
                              " I feel great when I eat healthy, and have less body fat"

   
     Take control of your life. Commit to small, daily changes, then go big, and set monthly goals. Before you know it you will look, and feel great. Only you can do this for yourself! This is your year to change your life. GO FOR IT!!
