The Year Ahead!

The past year has been a whirlwind moving to a new state and beginning construction of our home. Not only did we relocate 450 miles south but we went from a metropolitan suburb to a rural farm.

It's been a year of stagnation to an uptick of nearly 15 pounds but I'm ready to push hard into the new year. Our house should be complete in April/May and not only will I have more free time but I will have my own Fitness Room. I have missed my elliptical, treadmill and bike!

I've not yet settled on what I'm going to do as an accountability group but I am going to do "something". I'm leaning with using my blog space to stay accountable and hopefully encourage/inspire someone else to do the same.

Still PRESSING ON!

Recipe for a Merry Christmas

To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
Pour love over all in generous measure,
And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

~ Barbara Burrow ~

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!
