Getting healthy in 2013 is on the top of many resolution lists this year. It is tops on my list. It is my one resolution. I have made resolutions before and have abandoned them by the end of January. This year I have decided to make it stick. I did a lot of internet cruising and came up with a plan. I never had a plan before. If I have a plan I am sure to succeed. Right? I will be using S.M.A.R.T goals - I will focus on creating goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time based (SMART). Well I will let you know at the end of the year.
I set specific health related goals. I had to make them measurable goals that I can track. Telling myself "I will loose 20 Pounds" has been changed to "I will go swimming 3 times a week.". "Going on a diet" is now "Eat at home 6 days a week." I will be focusing on why I want to be more healthy as well. I am trying to change my approach this year.
"I will go swimming 3 times a week."
This goal is achievable. I will know if I am on track immediately. I like that I can plan my week. Take it one week at a time. If I am swimming 3 times a week I will get stronger and more healthy. This one is a little trickier. I will do better in the weeks to come.
"Eat at home 6 days a week."
This is a big one for my family! We eat out a lot. In a previous post I blame my restaurateur parents. When I was young we went out for breakfast, lunch or dinner on a regular basis. My father called in. "Market research.". I started meal planning and this goal is working! At first I shocked that my food bill had increased so much but then my hubby pointed out that now we had food in the house with a plan. No more running out to a restaurant and spending $100 numerous times a week. Ok so now I feel better about the increase in the groceries.
I would love one of these ready to use saunas. Plug in and you are ready to use your 2 man sauna -- no electrician required! I would love to unwind, relax, and just let the aches and pain melt away! Best part is that I can take it with me when I move!
YOU have a chance to win one for yourself!
