A Great New Year Start

Thank you for checking out my blog. I'm looking forward to sharing with all of you great fitness tips, great food ideas, and menu's to help you reach your goals and change your life.

So, here it is a new year, and time for a NEW YOU!  I know you've been putting up excuses every year and waiting til later to make a change for the better.. Now is the time and I know you can do it.  You are worth it and all it takes are some simple changes. I will be adding recipes, websites, workouts, and ideas to help you reach your goals!  As you are working on mapping out your goals, here are some things to remember:
   1. WRITE THEM DOWN! - you are 85% more likely to reach a goal that has been written down.
   2. Make Them Manageable-  Don't say you want to lose 40 pounds by April, break it up into smaller,
       easier, to reach goals, such as: I will lose 1-2 pounds per week.
   3. Schedule Time- Put it on your calendar. You will need at least 1 hour/6 days a week, so put those
       appointments to workout on your schedule and stick to it!
   4. Get a Buddy- You are 80% more likely to keep a workout appointment if you have someone depending
        on you to be there. Whether it's a friend, a personal trainer, a spouse, commit to it with them.
   5. Celebrate your Victories!!!- When you hit your manageable goals, celebrate.... Not with food, but with
       a pedicure/manicure, a new workout outfit, going to the movies w/spouse! Fun stuff!
