Making Plans for 2013??

December 26th, 2012 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

Well folks you know where I stand on making New Year’s resolutions. In two words, I don’t! What’s so magical about January 1st anyways? If this is your only day to make a new goal to change you’ve got an excuse to be naughty and not nice for the balance of the year before next New Year. Think again! Any day of the year is a good day to make a change to better yourself. Here’s a handy list of ideas to consider now and to refer to all year though.

DO – Aim to get more active every season of the year. Get moving!

DON’T – Eat with distractions, especially in front of the TV. Be mindful!

DO – Work toward having more meals together as a family. Connect!

DON’T – Start any fad diet. Be sensible!

DO – Try a new easy, healthy recipe every few weeks and aim to cook more. Get cooking!

DON’T – Weigh yourself every day. You’ll go batty. Focus on positive changes!

DO – Get off your duff and more more. Your life could depend on it. Worth stating twice!

DON’T – Eliminate your favourite foods, you’ll just crave them like crazy. Get real!

DO – Plan to make food choices using all of the food groups. Stay balanced!

DON’T – Follow the crowd, follow your own inner voice and plans. Be a leader!

DO – Take the RealAge test once per year. It’s VERY insightful. Get younger!

DON’T – Make excuses. Trust me, there are people worse off than you, so tune your attitude in. Get real!

DO – Get in the habit of reading food product labels. Knowledge is power. Be informed!

DON’T – Change your plans like the wind changes direction every time the news reports on a different study. Stay focused!

DO – Take your annual physical check up and dentist visit. Stay on top of things because prevention is key. Think prevention!

DON’T – Take anecdotal advice. Just because Aunt Jane is a smart accountant, doesn’t mean she knows squat about nutrition. Get reliable advice!

DO – Work in small rewards and love yourself more. Be your own best friend. Get pumped!

DON’T – Aim for perfection. Be realistic!

DO – Work on looking and feeling better everyday. You may do better when you feel great. Stay motivated!

Ok, so there you have it,  some food for thought as we propel ourselves to the New Year.
