Health Goals for the Year

Hi Friends! I hope that you are having a good start to the year.  This year is one that I really wanted to focus on my health.  I have high blood pressure and have just over all become a couch potato.  I knew for a while I needed to do something for my health but I never stuck with it.  So this year my goal is to have a much healthier lifestyle! I cook most of my meals but snacking is my downfall. 

I thought in order to make these goals, I one not only had to write them down, but two share them with the world so Im held responsible.  I also wanted to get into working out for the mental health aspect and to take some time to focus on me. Since I know it is a lifestyle change I wrote down 10 goals that will improve my overall lifestyle!

  1. Improve my posture (my sister always yells at me) 
  2. Have my heels touch in downward dog (flexibility but this was a way to measure that!)
  3. Lose 10 pounds (or what 10 pounds looks like)
  4. Drink more water
  5. Cut back on snacking
  6. Lower resting heart rate
  7. Higher stamina - I hate getting winded on stairs
  8. Journal most days
  9. Find a hobbie that doesn't involve wifi
  10. Get outside more!
  11. BONUS - FEEL MORE CONFIDENT!!

Here are some of the things that I have purchased recently to help me on this lifestyle journey!

Be sure to use Ebates to help you save money!

New Year New You List

Happy New Years to you!! I hope you had a great time, I unfortunately got food poisoning but I am doing much better! Did you check out the new store?! 

So of course now is the time to make some new years goals, and resolutions, hopefully change some of out bad habits and replace them with healthy ones! I will be sharing my resolutions later on this week, but I wanted to make a list of things that I think will help you out this year! So you can hit the ground running (for some literally).

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.Happy Shopping! 

1 - A water bottle. These swell water bottles are everywhere any they are so cute.  It is so important to drink a lot of water for your appetite, flushing toxins, skin, etc.

2. - A fitness journal. I think it is very valuable to hold yourself accountable and write down all the things you eat, and your exercising habits.  Its very helpful! Apps like MyFitnessPal tell you about how your food breaks down with fats, protein and carbs and what your goals should be! Here is another one I really like.

3. - Wireless headphones.  I find these super helpful to work out, I was constantly trying to put my headphone back in while running or pulling them out while lifting.  I also like wireless headphones for cleaning and during chores.  I listen to music, podcast or audiobooks.  

4. - Mason Jars.  There are some many healthy recipes for mason jars, wether its salad, snacks or yummy water.  I think its a cute way to be healthy and that motivates me.

5. A Yoga Mat. I love my yoga mat for any time I work out even when its not yoga.  I stretch on it all the time and its just a soft space to do work outs.  So don't think you HAVE to do yoga to own a yoga mat.

6. Crystals. If crystals are your thing I found a really awesome bundle on Amazon.  I like the idea of energy and having something tangible to hold. 

I also really liked  this cookbook  as well!

7. Vitamins. Lastly but very importantly vitamins.  I know vitamins can just really help you over all in any problems you're having wether its something internal, skin or stress these guys can help.  I don't take my regularly enough but I hope to! 

I hope this new year brings you happiness and peace! I look forward to continuing this journey with you!
