My health resolutions have not stuck very well.
I need to press the reset button and get back to making healthy eating choices, drinking my water, moving my body more, etc, etc...
I've decided that January is a more challenging month for eating well than the holidays. We have a bunch of family birthdays, the Super Bowl party and plenty of other events that have LOTS of tempting treats. To top it off, I have made the mistake of buying candy, of all things!
I'll never reach my goal at this rate. In fact, I'm heading in the wrong direction!
So, I am relisting my goals to remind myself and strengthen my weakening resolve:
* Drink 9 glasses of water daily
* Exercise 240 minutes a week
* Ditch the candy and limit myself to one sweet treat daily
* Get 7-8 hours of sleep a night
Those are not impossible goals. In fact, we are heading into a warm-up around here, the days are getting longer and I'm feeling the need for a walk "around the block". In the summer my sister and I walked a 4.7 mile loop almost every morning. It was the ultimate stress reliever, weight-buster workout, just over an hour long. I think it's time to get out there again!
I haven't done a very good job of checking in on my goals so I am making a public pledge to report back weekly on my progress.
Have a great weekend everyone!
