Hello and happy last post of 2014!!!
Today and tomorrow are my days to get things done!! Thanks to my MOM, she has instilled a superstition within me! Whatever you leave unfinished in the old year, you’ll be behind at through the new year. So….laundry, cleaning, errands…the list continues. I guess I should thank my Grandma! So, this will be quick since I gotta get crackin’. I am so very excited to start 2015. I thrive on challenges and goal setting. This last Sunday we heard a talk in church about goals and New Year’s Resolutions. Everyone laughs a little as the statistics are presented. Why set goals, if you aren’t going to keep them? Why set yourself up for failure? WHY??? Blah. Blah. Blah. Not my kind of attitude. M. Russell Ballard said:
“I believe you can train yourself to become a positive thinker, but you must cultivate a desire to develop the skill of setting personal worthy and realistic goals. Let me tell you something about goal setting. I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don’t set goals in our life and learn how to master the technique of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principle of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life.”
I LOVE this!! To reach my full potential is what I strive for. This is why I set goals. And if I don’t keep them, I make new ones! I’m usually pretty good with the New Year’s Goal. Last year, I didn’t have candy all year! And I didn’t, minus homemade Christmas candies! And, ya know what? I’m not going to have candy again this year. I need to update one of my goals I posted in the last post!! I talked about not having white flour and white sugar. Well, I’m already not going to have that 6 days a week so my new mini goal is to eat within the first hour of waking up and every 3 hours. Here’s the updated list:
2015 #1 GOAL
Healthy eating 6 days a week!
6 MINI GOALS
JAN-FEB: One treat day a month.
MAR-APR: Keep a food journal.
MAY-JUNE: Eat first hour of waking up and every 3 hours.
JUL-AUG: Daily vitamins and 80 oz. of water daily.
SEP-OCT: No eating past 8:00 p.m.
NOV-DEC: 6 days a week of Jamie Eason Live Fit.
I always start JAN. 1 regardless of what day of the week it lands on! This year it’s a Thursday. I think I’ll do a little detoxing for 4 days with smoothies and soups! Several Christmas presents this year will motivate me to stay on track!!! I got a treadmill and some new workout clothes, one can never have too many! I got two new books! One is used to track weight workouts. I’m excited about this. I’ve always wanted to be better at keeping record of my sets, reps, and weight. The second is a body part I’ve been wanting to improve (: The funny thing is that half of the book is about how and what to eat!! So true!!
I also found a new workout I’d like to try for the next 60 days. It’s posted on MUSCLE AND FITNESS. It’s called 60 DAYS TO FIT.
I liked it because it’s 4 weight workouts I week. I’m always doing extra classes so this works perfect!
You can download the whole program that includes nutrition at Muscle and Fitness. He uses the theory of having light and heavy lifting days. On the other days I’ll be doing boot camp, HIGH fitness, combat, or running. Can’t wait!!
O.K. I’m set for the new year! I’m going to try and be better at posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday will be food related, Wednesday is for workouts, and Friday is fashion and fun!
Keep working hard and loving life. Get after it and believe in yourself. See you next year!!
