New Years Resolution

How is it already New Years eve? Where on earth did the time go? Well, on that note, I probably should get to the point of this post, huh?

New Years resolutions. I love them and hate them. Mostly hate them because like giving up for something for Lent, I tend to forget or just give up. Terrible habit. But with all that failing I have realized that trying not to eat chocolate and drinking less coffee isn't realistic. Mostly because 1) I love chocolate and 2) It was dumb.

So this year, I'm trying something a bit new. The resolutions I am making will be far more flexible and attainable. I won't beat myself up if instead of 1 cup of coffee I have 2. (That isn't on my resolutions. I'm not repeating caffeine withdrawal. )

Currently, I have one resolution and that is to be healthy. Whether it be getting a quick workout in or eating more vegetables, I want that to be my focus. Meaning I can indulge in my sweets, drink my coffee and still keep with my resolution. Flexibility is key!

So to kick things off, starting Monday since I will be gone enjoying myself at a lake house for the weekend I am starting...Jamie Eason's 12 Week Trainer, Live Fit!

The program isn't about losing weight for me, it is about becoming strong. Jamie Eason doesn't stress on low-carb dieting or quick results and uses a program that is about investing the effort into getting a strong, lean , beautiful body with time. While this program has specific diets and workouts, I will do my best do follow it to continue my New Years resolution to be healthy.

I'll be sure to keep you all updated :) And Happy New Year!

Q: How will you be healthy in the new year?
