GET IN TO A
STATE OF MIND
Resolution #1: CHOOSE WATER FIRST
Minimize your beverage consumption choices. Sodas, alcohol, sweet drinks, Foo-Foo coffee drinks, smoothies, specialty drinks, energy drinks and pre-made commercial protein drinks - are all no-no's!
When asked what you would like to drink, your answer will be, WATER, please.
It is about changing your beverage of choice mindset. Beverages, like food, become a part of our daily habits and routines. Coffee in the mornings. Protein and energy drinks during the day. Wine and beer in the evenings. We pour hundreds of chemicals and calories down our throats every day!
MAKING THE RESOLUTION TO DRINK WATER ONLY
It's a simple and easy thing to do on a daily and hourly basis. Getting into the habit of making water your primary choice every time you drink will become a habit tha is ingrained in your every day sooner than you think.
Obviously drinking more H2O and consuming less of other beverages will enhance your health in many ways. This change will also help your pocketbook as you will be buying less quick consumable beverages and opting for water - which in most cases can
be had for free.
You are on your way to a VIBRANT, healthier and financially savvier 2017 just by CHOOSING WATER!
Resolution #2: NO FAST FOOD
Fast food is about convenience. That convenience costs you in bad nutrition, high calories, and money. Make it a 2017 resolution to not eat fast food. This includes microwaveable and highly processed foods.
If it comes in a shiny and colorful box, hangs out in the freezer section and you can nuke it to doneness, don't eat it!
MAKING THE RESOLUTION TO ELIMINATE FAST AND PROCESSED FOOD
This is not an easy shift for most people as it entails adding chores to your day with purchasing and preparing of foods. Unfortunately, many people just suck in the kitchen, making this resolution STICK may require a large learning curve.
If your O.K. in the kitchen and can find your way around a grocery store, just heed the advice at the top...NO FAST FOOD. Plan accordingly and make it happen.
Eliminating fast food reduces a lot of negative nutrition immediately. Planning and eating all of your meals from your kitchen will save your body from excessive calories, chemicals, and preservatives, and put a little money in your piggy bank.
Once again you have created a Financial and Health resolution for 2017 and all you're doing is paying a little more attention to how you consume food.
RESOLUTION #3: WALK EVERY DAY
Walking is by far, the most effective health promoting MOVEMENT we can do. It's easy, can be done at any time and requires no money.
Whether it's for ten minutes or 2 hours, do it daily. Besides the calorie burning aspects of walking, it's an excellent de-stressor! With your mind clear and your heart moving faster you will soon feel less stress and more energy.
MAKING THE RESOLUTION TO WALK DAILY
Your walks can be leisurely or fast paced. Short or long. With music or without music. Find a route that is safe with familiar surroundings and begin walking, or use a treadmill.
With a little persistence, you will find yourself still walking for all of it's benefits in 2018.
Walking burns calories while putting your mind at ease and leaving your pocket book untouched.
