Posted on 17. Jan, 2011 by in Uncategorized

It’s mid-Jan. Time to evaluate how your New Year’s resolution are going. Are you sticking with it? Are you struggling? If so try a little self exploration. Look at the inner & outer circumstances that are causing your resolve to ebb. Then evaluate what changes you can make in your life so you’re better geared to be constructive instead of destructive.

Getting back on track and motivated: Ask a buddy to go with you, keep a journal of your intake and exercise. Cut out one “non-healthy” item from your diet.  Cut down on “non-healthy” items such as chips, dips, ice cream, desserts, processed foods, sodium laden foods. You get the idea. Post your thoughts here so myself & others might be helpful.   Now on to the weekly tips.
