Resolutions are not a once a year thing
Tuesday, January 22, 2013
So, I know everyone makes New Years resolutions (and few people keep them for very long.) I decided that since I am not guilt-free when it comes to this, and it annoys me that everyone (myself included) seems to think that change can only occur in January, that I will be making several monthly resolutions. I will spend that month starting to make the change, but I will focus on it from then on. It was after I cut soda out of my diet (around 5 months ago!) that I realized if I focus on improving myself a little at a time (one thing a month) that I am more successful in actually making the change. So here it is: my January change (a little late in posting, but I started it on the first.)
Cut out energy drinks
Cut out sugar from my coffee
Drink more water
Progress so far:
Haven't had an energy drink since the last week of 2012!
I had my first sugar free cup today, but I have cut myself back from 2 spoons of sugar per cup, so that's good progress! :)
I'm not getting the water I need to get everyday, so I have a lot of work left on this and might make it my main focus in February.
I started meditating again last night (I've only done it a couple of times this year) But I found a great app on my phone that helps me with guided meditation as well as breathing techniques so I am hoping to work on this one a little more here on out. The goal is to reduce my stress, so I'm not going to stress about it too much, lol.
Anyways, that sums up my January. I am sure the rest of the month will go great and next month will too.
I hope everyone else is having as much fun and success making the healthy changes that they want to make in their lives.
