Creating a plan for a healthy 2014

Saturday, December 28, 2013

I start every day with my Mantra-

I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth.
I make the choice to exercise daily.
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind.
I make the choice to be healthy!

And write out my goals for the day-
Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 15,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ weigh and measure food today
~ journal thoughts and feelings surrounding eating today
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ laugh out loud today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff

But then I don't revisit them until the next day. In 2014 I will read my Mantra in the morning and then again at lunch time. I set up a calendar event in my phone that will pop up for me to read.

I plan my dinner menu for the week and use that when I go grocery shopping to make sure I have what I need in the house to create my daily masterpieces. I also create one new masterpiece each week, one that I have not made before, using the cookbooks and recipes available to me.

I visit my Spark Friends daily.

I attend my Weight Watchers meeting at least 3 times per month and continue to weigh in at goal weight for my continued health. (Free e-tools helps too!)

I spend at least 30 minutes per day exercising. Walking, running, elliptical, treadmill or any other form of exercise that is fitting for the day.

I use positive reinforcement rather than looking at the negative side of life.

I know that as the days go by, there will be more goals and plans to be made for 2014, but this is a good start.

    I just love your positive attitude. I just LOVE the time you spend on yourself and your goals -- you KNOW that you are worth it. I just LOVE that you consistently beat my butt on the Fitbit count -- and out of my 50+ friends, you are the *only* one that consistently has more steps than me!

    I trust that 2014 will be another successful year for you. Anyone who puts this much time and effort into it cannot be anything but successful!!!!

    Happy new year, friend!!
