Happy New Years Day! I hope your holidays were great and you didn’t get into too much trouble last night. It seemed like most of my friends decided to have dinner out or at home than celebrate by watching the ball drop on television. We did our annual dinner out to Bravo Italiano and our waiter was awesome! I am vegetarian and ordered a salad without bacon and he gave me a hard time about that, but it was all in good fun.
So today I woke up knowing my FB newsfeed would be filled with all of everyone’s resolutions. I’ve seen a ton of lose weight, get out of debt, etc. So here’s the thing most people will fail at their resolutions. Why? Because they set too broad of a goal. They just say I want to lose weight. Well…. how much weight are you needing to lose? What are you going to do to lose that weight? Eat better? Exercise? The best thing you can do for your self is make goals and make them measurable, attainable, realistic. So instead of I want to lose weight this year… try this instead. I want to lose 50 pounds by December 31, 2015. I will achieve this by eating a strictly plant-based diet and I will exercise at Farrells EP True 5 days a week (Yes, I had to give a shout out to Farrells). This you can measure, you have a timeline, and you have a plan. See how this could be more beneficial to you.
For me I choose not to have resolutions. I choose to have goals. I feel I am set up to win, when I have a clear plan. This year my goal is to blog at least once a week. Check week one of January off the list! HAHA. I also want to work on my podcast and I did a quick one this afternoon and I’m really getting the hang of it, I think. It’s an exciting day and everything seems so full of potential. What do you plan to do for 2015? Feel free to leave a comment.
Happy New Years! Kristi
