January, 2019 Newsletter
In the News
Happy new year! I hope 2019 brings you good health and balanced nutrition! Resolutions are all over the news during these first few weeks of the year; brainstorming realistic goals for ourselves and our desire to lead a healthy lifestyle should always be on our minds-both short term and long term. As 2018 ends and 2019 begins lets always remember to constantly re-evaluate our goals to make them manageable, realistic, and positive!
Keeping our nutrition goals positive for 2019 is a key to a balanced lifestyle. Its easy to focus on the negative and all the foods and habits we want to eliminate from our lifestyle. I recommend to keep all goals positive; to focus on the foods we want to add and behaviors we want to enhance. Think about your goals, write them down, constantly evaluate and change them!
To get to know a little bit more about me, I thought I might tell you some of my nutrition goals for 2019…
Family Meals: I love cooking and trying new restaurants with my family; We don’t eat together every night, but those nights we get to are unforgettable! My goal is to keep it up–and chasing after a husband, 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter will definitely make it a challenge!
Balanced Diets: One of my favorite household sayings! Making sure my house is full of yummy fruits and vegetables as well as cookies and ice cream is a must! As parents, being positive role models for our children is the best food advice around. I eat ice cream, so my kids should too! And nothing beats a good salad topped with goat cheese, walnuts and an asian peanut dressing.
Eat When You are Hungry and Stop When You are Full: If you read my newsletter you know this is my favorite saying! My goal is to continue to honor my intuitive cues and cravings.
Exercise: We all need to find time to move our bodies and find a type of movement that we connect to. There are too many types of exercise out there to love–do not do anything you hate! You can find me on my yoga mat, spinning, and on the tennis court.
I can’t wait to read about your goals in 2019!
