Keeping a resolution can be tough. January starts out strong with the best intentions, but generally after week three, enthusiasm and motivation begin to fade. Why does this happen? Could it be that goals are not practical? Are resolutions too extreme to be attainable? So, how about this? Instead of dramatic lifestyle changes, how about a series of smaller goals? Say, each week, implement one new healthy habit. This way, by February, you’ll be going strong and building momentum. Track your progress in your journal or on social media and add to the accountability factor.
#1. Drink more water and add lemon. Simple, yet effective. It promotes hydration and can help you feel fuller. Add lemon for a refreshing taste, too!
#2. Turn your favorite cheat food into a healthy option. Try cauliflower pizza, lettuce wrap tacos and zucchini pasta.
#3. Increase antioxidants. Berries, grapes and cherries. Spinach, sprouts and beets. are a great way to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet.
#4. Skip the sweet stuff in your coffee and tea. You can kick it up a notch, too, by adding a scoop of Purely Inspired Collagen Peptides.
#5. Don’t wait until January 2! There’s no hard and fast rule that says you have to wait until the new year to embark on your new goals. Start today!
