Happy New Year 2016
Merry Christmas 2015
Begin the New Year with a fresh new outlook for health and fitness. It’s a great time to say goodbye to old habits and hello to new healthy choices. Being healthy is a lifestyle; it’s not just about losing weight. It’s about creating a manageable lifestyle and embodying a positive mindset every day. It’s about strengthening your body, mind and soul.
If you truly want to change your lifestyle this year, ask yourself what steps have you taken to see your dream fulfilled? Have you created a functional life plan for 2015? In order to reach your goal of a healthier lifestyle, you must start out with a plan. This is how a healthy mind achieves success.
Convince your mind and the rest will follow. We all know that a healthy body requires a disciplined mind. It takes a certain amount of discipline to make healthy choices. This includes nutrition and exercise. Developing better eating habits and making daily exercise a regular part of your life are simple yet essential elements for a healthier lifestyle.
Healthy eating and daily exercise have so many benefits. Manage your weight, look great, feel better, increase your energy level, become stronger and be sexier. You’ll feel more confident every day when you take control of your life and make healthier choices about your diet and fitness.
My wish for the New Year is for all of you to be the happiest and healthiest women in 2015. It’s up to you to make healthy choices, but I’ll be here to support you. It’s a fresh New Year and it’s time to make overall wellness your 2015 new game plan for life.
Eat healthy, drink in moderation and keep a merry and positive attitude.
Celebrate the beginning of the New Year with a resolution that will be easy to keep. Instead of resolving to lose weight and exercise more, change the language that you speak to yourself and instead make healthy, happy choices that can last a lifetime.
Beginning day one, make the conscious decision to take control over your life and the choices you make. It really is that simple. If you concentrate on taking control over your life, you will find that there really are no excuses. No excuse for overeating, especially foods that contain high calories per serving and no excuse for not exercising, there are plenty of exercises that can be done indoors and outdoors.
Even if you just want to lose a few pounds, changing the way you think about food and dieting can be the secret to a healthy weight for the rest of your life. From savory to sweet, food is the source of life and should be enjoyed with every bite. You don’t have to give up your favorite foods in order to shrink your waistline, just eat smaller amounts.
Losing weight is on the list of many women making New Year’s resolutions, but the truth is that most of those resolutions will fail. The main reason that these resolutions don’t make it is because these ladies choose a short-term solution for a long-term goal. Successful weight loss requires a long-term solution. Successful weight loss cannot be achieved without weight management and weight management cannot be achieved without self-control.
If I make it sound too easy, it may be because deep down, you know that self-control is the foundation for all the decisions that you make. We may not be able to control life, but we have the power to control how we react to all life has to offer. Self-control is a gift that we have all been blessed with and it is ours to nurture and grow. Just like a muscle strengthens with exercise, the more we exercise our self-control, the stronger it becomes.
As the celebrations begin I raise my glass in a toast to you my friend, let’s say good-bye to 2013 and look forward to the coming of 2014, with all the anticipation and promise for a Happy, Healthy New Year.
Christmas is my favorite time of year. It is a magical time of love and charity. It’s a time when all things seem possible. Christmas is a time of hope. It is God’s gift to all of us.
Like many mothers, my Christmas wish this year was to have my sons home for the holidays. Well I got my wish and more. All of my boys have invited friends over, too. Every morning I wake up with more people in the house. I never know how many mouths I will be feeding, so I make sure I have plenty of food in the refrigerator and when I say food, I am talking about healthy food. None of them seem to mind and there are never any leftovers, but the laundry—oh my!
Christmas is such a busy time that I have to remind myself that every day is a gift and each life a treasure. Through all the celebrations, please don’t forget to remind yourself of how much you are loved and how valuable your life truly is. My wish is that you stay healthy and safe during this holiday season.
Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself, either. There are so many delicious alternatives to foods that are high in saturated fat, sodium and sugar, but even when you can’t control the ingredients, you can control the portion. To help curb your appetite, eat a small apple and drink a glass of water before going out.
During all these busy times, try to get the rest and relaxation that your body needs. I know it’s not easy, there are so many things to do, but it has been proven that adequate rest is essential for a healthy body and sleep deprivation interferes with weight loss. Not to mention that it’s hard to be merry when you are too grumpy.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays and may the true meaning of Christmas shine bright for you and your loved ones. Give the gift of love to yourself by taking control of your life and truly treating yourself with the love and respect that you deserve. Body, Mind and Spirit…Think it, Believe it…Achieve it.
