My New Year’s Resolution
With the new year coming I’ve been thinking about making a new year’s resolution. I always did when I was younger. I’d stick to it for about a week or two and then I became part of the 99% of Americans who failed to keep their new year’s resolution(s). After a while I just stopped making them because I hate feeling like a failure.
Ever since Doug and I were married all of my healthy eating and exercising has gone out the window. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve gained some weight. Not just weight, but I’ve gained bad habits.
- eat way too much fried/junk/sugary/processed food
- haven’t been to the gym/worked out for months
- don’t drink enough water
- I’ve become very lazy 🙁
My New Year’s Resolution (And I’m sticking to it)
I’ve learned a couple things in my 29 years of life: don’t set unrealistic expectations, you’ll end up failing and if you expect nothing you’ll appreciate everything. I used to set goals that were really unattainable. So, this year I am making my new year’s resolution very EASY. I think it will help me gain confidence in ME when I am able to keep these resolutions!
- drink at least 8 glasses of water each day
- eat at least one serving of fruits AND veggies each day
- work out for at least 10 minutes EVERY day (don’t have to break a sweat, but just do it!)
- lose the 5 pounds I’ve gained (because if I don’t it’ll be 10 pounds by this time next year. AHH, NO!)
***I am sharing this with you all so I have people who hold me accountable. 😀 Would you guys wanna do this with me? We could hold each other accountable! 🙂
Skinny On The Outside & Fat On The Inside
Ever heard of such a thing? Yeah, it does exist. And, I don’t want that to be me. I want to look and feel fit. This isn’t just about losing weight for me. It is about becoming HEALTHY and ACTIVE again. One day I want to be a mom. I want to be the kind of mom who gets down and plays with her kids and runs around in the yard with them. The way I’ve been eating and living I don’t have the energy to do these things anymore (and I’m only 29!!!)
Elya’s Plexus “Pink /Drink”
Have you guys heard of this yet? Ells has been raving about her “pink drink.” I’ve seen a lot of friends all over facebook drinking their “pink drinks.” They claim to have oh-so much energy and their drinks taste oh-so good. They say they no longer need 10 cups of coffee a day and that they have been losing weight WITHOUT dieting on tasteless carb/fat/calorie free diets. And, all these women say this “pink drink” gives them lots of energy at the gym. I’m definitely willing to give it a try!
Let’s Keep Our New Year’s Resolution
Doug, Elya and I agreed to try this EASY New Year’s resolution together. I told Elya I’d drink the “pink drink” with her, but Doug immediately wanted nothing to do with it. Lol, go figure! Do you want to join our New Year’s Resolution? (You obviously can have your own goals & you certainly don’t have to drink the pink drink. lol. But the idea is that we can support each other!)
Here is the link for the “pink drink” for those of you who wanna learn more about it. (After one try of this drink I loved it & just totally went all out – I signed up through Elya to be an ambassador.) I hope it helps us actually stick to our goals! WE WILL CONQUER THIS TOGETHER! (I really wish there were emojis for my blogs! I’d put the twinsie dance girls there!)
I’m excited we have a circle of encouragement and support! Together we will stick to our New Year’s Resolution this year! 🙂 This is going to be a lot of fun!
P.S You gotta see the BEHIND THE SCENES Vid to our 2cd annual Ugly Hehner Holiday Card. IT’S SO FUNNY!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
