What new year resolutions did you make for 2015? Patience? To lose weight or eat healthier? Or was it something like to go to church more often or give back to the less fortunate? Whatever you chose did you stick with it thus far? if not what struggles have you had?
January brings about a time of change and acknowledgement in that which we like or dislike about ourselves. It exposes our flaws, regrets, and hangups while allowing us an opportunity to rectify those negatives and start anew. We make our new year resolutions whole heartedly and swear we are committed to seeing through the change.
My first new years resolution is to try and relax more, let go of all the unnecessary stress we sometimes let get to us and as my mother likes to say, “just chill”. My second primary resolution is to focus on the nutrition that is going into my body. Trying specifically to rid of those “unnatural” additions like high fructose corn syrup, soybean oils, and even a surplus of “excess wheat.”
While those two resolutions may seem totally unrelated, they all combine into one clear theme… simplicity. I’m bringing back simplicity as we so often over-complicate our lives. We over think and over analyze everything.
I look forward over the coming weeks to share with you ways and ideas to help you reach your health and fitness goals without over complicating your lives. Who has time for that right?
I also hope to hear more about your success and struggles. What ways you’ve simplified your life and it’s helped you reach your goals? What were/are your goals? What failures have you had and learned from?
