Lifestyle Change: 

Simple words…HARD TO DO!

You can make all the resolutions that are not kept, and go through the same depression at this time of year that happened in previous years. It’s due to 1) lack of sunshine and 2) frustration with your shape, 3) inability to change eating or drinking habits. You can wear baggy clothes and explain away that the burrito from Chipotle doesn’t happen every week…but let’s find a better way.

A better way to have more energy, a body shape that pleases you, better health long-term…

It’s all here. Clean eating and exercise. Weight training and cardio builds muscle (not bulk), promotes high metabolism, builds bone density, makes you look fit and can be made to be FUN! You know these things are true

Find a friend that you can make a pact with to help keep your workout consistent and your food choices healthy. It makes a big difference in your ability to be consistent with food and exercise when you’re supported by someone that wants you to succeed.  I just got a Facebook message from a friend from the gym asking for help.  Her work schedule has kept her from the gym and she gained 20 pounds.  I gave her several food preparation ideas and we are going to go through her pantry to evaluate her triggers, then we will shop for healthy foods.  She is my friend and I want her to feel energized and healthy.  Find that friend for you.

 Let’s follow these ideals together. Bring a friend (‘like’ this blog on Facebook and send the blogs to your friends to help motivate them). Let’s generate ideas to keep it fresh together.

Let’s make a decision that this year there will be no UNKEPT RESOLUTIONS. We aren’t making a resolution; we’re making a lifestyle change!
