Jumping into a new year!


My New Years Resolutions:

-Healthy eating/New Diet
Trying to eat gluten free and dairy free (two things that I believe do not treat by body too well)
Finding the right workout plan that I can do from home
Getting myself to bed at a more descent hour which will be 11pm instead of 12am or later (I'm a night owl)
-Phone Time/Electronics
Cutting down on being glued to my phone or laptop especially during the evening and night hours.
Going to try and get more into blogging and other social media which will occur more durig day time so it doesnt interferre with my last resolution.

Read a little bit each day and gather a nice collection of books

Making New Years Resolutions Stick

1. Keep your resolutions simple.
Sometimes people find themselves aiming for an overhaul of their entire lifestyle, and this is simply a recipe for disappointment and guilt. It may be understandable at this time of year, when self-improvement is on your mind, but experience shows these things can’t all be achieved at once. The best approach is to focus clearly on one or two of your most important goals.
2. Choose carefully.
But which to choose? Well, you might like to concentrate on those that will have the greatest impact on your happiness, health and fulfilment. For example, giving up smoking will obviously improve your health, but it will also give you a sense of pride and will make you happy (but perhaps not immediately!)

Tricks To Help Keep Your Resolutions

1. Set short-term goals for long-term results.
People who break their resolutions into small, manageable chunks typically have more success. Say your goal is to save money. Rather than making a resolution to save $5,000 this year, try to save $100 a week. It’s almost the same amount of money (a little more actually), yet the goal is easier to keep. You’re able to measure your progress along the way and all you have to think about is that $100 each week, not that insurmountable $5,000.
2. Make your resolution about the journey, not the outcome.
There’s a better guarantee of success if you stick to resolutions that you actually have control over. Want to lose 15 pounds? Well, sticking to a healthy diet and exercise routine is more important than the number on the scale. And you can’t force those pounds off. So, stick to a resolution like ‘I will go to the gym five days a week and I will fill half my plate with fruits and vegetables at every meal.’ These are things you have control over and they will help you reach your ultimate goal of weight loss.
