My journey to overall health and wellness... Thanks for coming along!


Tuesday, January 12, 2010


The month we all get to start over, do something new, like say... write a blog. For most of us it is the month we try to undo what we did over the past two months, or better yet pretend it didn't happen. The month that the excuse "It's the holidays" is no longer acceptable. It's here again.
This year I am not going to get overwhelmed by setting crazy goals and putting tons of pressure on myself. New Years resolutions are good, but I think a better way to approach it is to just take it one day at a time. Say to yourself, "What can I do today to live to my fullest potential?" Instead of saying "I have to lose 10 pounds by Februaury", say "Today I am going to eat healthfully and exercise." Then you feel great when you do those things and attain that small goal you have set, which is much better than hopping on the scale Februaury 1st and realizing you didn't lose the 10 lbs and feeling disappointed and somehow like a failure. If you wake up every day with the intention of living to your fullest potential then odds are you WILL lose those pounds or whatever your goal may be.
