Happy Monday – 17 Days Till Thanksgiving….Stay HEALTHY with GOALS

Happy Monday everyone! I know that happy and Monday don’t always go well in the same thought, but I encourage you all to embrace Monday as a positive day to reset. Let go of what happened last week and reset for this week. Whether you didn’t work out enough or at all, you ate horribly or you had a few slip ups, you got down on yourself…..whatever it may be, let it go and start new today.

One thing that happens with a lot of us is that we let a bad day/week turn into a bad month, bad season, bad year. Then you wake up and realize you have been living an unhealthy lifestyle for WAY too long. Don’t let slip ups get you down and set you back. Just brush it off and keep reaching forward toward your goals. Forgive yourself for your slip ups and move past them. We often hold on to negative behaviors for too long simply because we get down on ourselves for “failing”. Don’t let this happen to you!

Setting goals is extremely important. We all need goals. Think about your professional life….how many of you have evaluations every year or even more often where you set performance goals? Probably a great deal of you. Apply this to your personal life too! Set short term and long term goals for yourself. If you don’t have a goal to work towards than it can be very hard to stay motivated and measure your progress. Currently we have set a goal to eat extremely clean for the next 17 days. We need a fresh feel good cleanse to get us from the crazy Halloween parties and vacation we were on to the fun Thanksgiving weekend approaching. SO many people give up on themselves between Halloween and New Years. That is over 2 months of set backs! Think about how long that is. I encourage you to stay healthy this holiday season. Of course we will all have parties and holiday events where we aren’t eating as healthy as we should but don’t let that role over into months of bad habits! Join us in eating healthy for 17 days so that we all get to Thanksgiving feeling AMAZING!
