A New Year

Posted by Colleen

I posted this in January 2017 and I thought it was worth re-posting.  We are a few days into the new year and if you made a New Year resolution, I hope it works out for you whatever the resolution may be.

Did you make a New Year resolution?  Like many people, I use too but I don’t any longer. Statistics show 80 % of resolutions fail. We can feel guilty of indulgences during the holiday season and the calendar gives us a sense of a fresh start.
A resolution is little more than a wish list unless you have a vision to make you feel you’re making progress in what ever you want to change.  Whether it is losing 10 pounds, eating healthier or quit smoking create a specific vision. You will need a compelling vision, a strong enough reason to get you through and review and feel it everyday. Best wishes for a healthy new year!

The Month of January

Posted by Colleen

I like to think of January as a motivational month it’s the start of a new year, a clean slate, new beginnings or maybe needing to end something.

I laugh to myself when I go into a store before New Year’s and the weight scales, exercise equipment, yoga mats, bar bells and other fitness products are in the main aisle of the store.  The ads on television for organizations like Weight Watchers, NurtiSystem, Jenny Craig and other weight loss eating programs start to show up.

Take advantage of January and make an appointment to see your physician for a check up, dentist for an exam and cleaning, get that membership to a gym, join a walking group and do whatever that you’ll enjoy doing for exercise and social interaction.

So take advantage of the month of January it’s almost at the end and start the year off with a positive outlook that continues all year long.

Here we are in the middle of January 2016 and how many of you made a New Year resolution?

Share your resolution with us and let us know how it is going.  I don’t particularly make a New Year resolution but hey if it gets you to better health then go for it.
