The new year is here, for some, the new year resolutions have already melted into a pool of obstacles and disappointment. For me, the new year brought new possibilities and my stronger than ever mission to live a healthier life and inspire my family to do so as well!
So, I’m going to share my secret to keep those resolutions working for me:
- My goals are down to earth and believable, for example, I set a 10 pound weight loss goal and steps I needed to take to reach it.
- The number of resolutions are smaller than previous years, to allow me to fully focus on them
- The resolutions embrace a better and happier life which support my word for 2016 which is JOY!
So excited to motivate you to follow along with me and live healthier and better as well!
#1: Healthier Eating and Drinking Habits
I decided to remove beverages with high sugar and artificial ingredients, substituting them for beverages such as V8® Veggie Blends (I thought it was just “tomato juice”, but it’s much more than that). At Walmart, they offer these amazing flavors:
Mandarin Orange Kiwi
Each 8oz. serving is 60 calories or less with no sugar added and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. But, as any juice beverage, moderation is the key, see nutritional label for more and enjoy a cold, delicious glass full of sabor!
More information can be found at V8® Veggie Blends
At Walmart I have found the highest variety and so many choices! I can’t wait to try all the flavors!
My family loved when I brought it home as the beverage for our taco night! Mango brings that latin flavor to one of our favorite family meals! We make an extra shopping trip to Walmart and bought all the fresh ingredients to make that meal and others we had planned, healthier but full of flavor.
If you follow my social platforms, you know that I have an on going search to eat healthy, organic fruits and vegetables and keep my weight low in the process.
I’ve collected some new recipes, adapted some family favorites such as Taco Night, removing the carbs from the tortilla, adding the lettuce instead and the fat from sour cream and cheese, substituting it for fat free/low fat versions, keeping the flavor with no guilt!
I’ve hired a personal trainer to introduce me to a more structured routine and have more fun experimenting with new equipment and new ways to keep me fit!
My first session was with the TRX, which totally kicked my boredom to the curb, giving me that extra push to keep moving!
#3 Reading and Learning
I’ve updated my library with new business books to bring it to the next level and I revamped my office to offer me a special reading corner and a meditation place! I also added breaks in my schedule to read and check newly released publications!
It’s all about leaving room for no excuses!
I made an effort to grow my business networking group, where we get together to learn with no fees, just sharing of knowledge and expertise!
I also want to find more time to run a book club with them!
#5 Me Time
I have been living such a busy hectic life, between work, trips, clients I manage. One of my most important resolutions is to schedule and not cancel “me time” and more family time as well!
More time for my mani/pedi, my hairdresser, lunch with friends, movies and dinner with my family and things that I have been neglecting in the past year.
