New Year’s Resolutions Wallet Giveaway Fashion Linkup
Ah, the power of a NEW YEAR! We are given another chance to make it right, and make it better. Yes, I will take it! After we had so many health issues this last year, my husband and I are both very glad that we have gotten through 2015. We can’t wait for a brand new year bringing a brand new healthy life to us. Of course we know we have to work on it and are starting off good so far.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Well, ours are very simple. To be a better us.
The biggest thing I need to change is to reprioritize my life. I have been a workaholic for my whole life. This year I still plan to work hard, but my goal is to spend that energy on getting myself in better shape. I’m going to try to put my health over everything. That means, I need to eat healthy and work out daily. That is not easy for me. 😉
My doctor suggested that I start to use the app called MyFitnessPal. You can track everything you eat and do during the day and it will tell you how good (or bad) you are doing in achieving your posted goal. After entering the data for a few days, I found this might be a bit harder than I thought! When you’re looking at those numbers there is no way to ignore the truth. My daily diet target is 1200 calories but after a few French toast sticks for breakfast, I used more than half of my daily allowance on the first meal of the day! Now what will I do for the other meals and snacks I’m supposed to have? You can earn back some calories by doing exercise so I dusted off our elliptical machine and got busy!
I’m way past the stage of starving myself to lose weight. In fact I think doing that when I was younger is what caused some of my problems now. Anyway, I guess I need to say goodbye to breads and rice and hello to salads. And I have to exercise more to make up for how much I do eat. With my busy schedule, between my blog and job, I wish I had more than 24 hours a day. 😉
My goal is to lose 15 pounds and get 3 inches off my waist this year. I told my husband, we should find a target image about our dream body, print it out and put on our bathroom mirror to remind us every day. Lol! What is your goal? It doesn’t matter what your goal is, let’s all work hard and be our best selves we can!
