A New Year, A New Me

It’s a new year and everyone is rushing to change their ways.  One of the most popular New Year resolutions categories would fall under health and diet.  “A new year, a new me!” At least this is what we tell ourselves.  It’s way too easy to fall off the health bandwagon, take it from me.  I have tried the amazing diet “KETO” at least 4 times in the last three months (Don’t Judge!).  100% healthy clean eating isn’t exactly the easiest thing to achieve when you are surrounded by all of those amazing holiday goodies.  The one great thing about a New Year is that we can push reset on all of our old habits and hopefully achieve new and better habits.  So for anyone wanting to dive into the Keto diet or any other clean eating diet here are a few things to consider.

  • Don’t throw away all of your current goodies you have stocked up in the cabinet.  This is self-sabotage.  You have to train your brain to have self-control.  Throwing away tempting foods will only make you crave them more!  My opinion slowly replaces the bad with the good.  This will help your pocket as well!

  • Eggs & avocados can be your best friend (specifically on Keto)!  There will be plenty of days when you feel like your stomach is eating itself and not only that, most people don’t have time to be in the kitchen making delicious snacks and meals all day.  I try to have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge ready to go.  It’s a great “go to” when you’re in a hurry!

  • Most importantly, don’t be so hard on yourself!  If someone offers you a taste of something that looks and smells amazing, just take the bite!  Balance is key in any diet.  You shouldn’t completely deprive yourself of what you desire or you might find yourself falling off that wagon and never returning.  The best thing any of us can do for ourselves is to form a habit of healthy choices and forgive ourselves during the learning process.

365 Days Of Being Amazing

Today is January 1st.  I cannot believe how fast time goes.  It couldn’t be a better year to make change.  I’m talking about the amazing kind of change that we all aspire to make but never get around to.  I have some great ideas in store to make this happen.

Change is only POSSIBLE if you learn to form a habit.  The only way to form a HABIT is by making the conscious choice to get up every day and create ACTION.  Sounds easy I know.  I have made those New Year’s Eve resolutions to eat healthier, exercise, clean more, ect.  It never happens.  We have 365 days to wake up and make the conscious choice to create change, a new kind of action. So, here we go.  I’m going to document my journey of 365 days to a new kind of me.  Somedays it will be small changes and others it will be HUGE.  I encourage you to join in on the adventure and make this the best year you have ever had.

Day 1

We spent most of our day on the road today.  Every year we load up and drive to Yreka, California to meet up with my in-laws.  I took advantage of our long drive and snapped as many photos as I could.  One of my goals this year is to take as many photos as I can.  I encourage you all to grab that camera or your phone and document your life.  It’s a reminder of what you have lived and a symbol of what inspires you to do more.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

 

Take pictures of all of your excursions

(Make time for more excursions!)

Take pictures of your fantastic meals

(Make more fantastic meals!)

Take pictures of things you want to improve

(Make more improvements!)

Catch my drift?  Find what it is that you want to change and photograph it.  Take the steps and follow through.  I’m so excited to share this year with you!
