This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Jimmy Dean, however the feelings and opinions expressed here are my own.
The New Year is almost here! I love to think of a New Year and a new beginning. Here are some healthy changes that I want to make in 2011:
In the AM I want to:
*My goal is to do 30 minutes of cardio on my treadmill or stationary bike 5 days per week in the AM before breakfast.
*Start my day with a good breakfast that includes protein. Don't you hate when you are starving by 10am? I am usually that way if I only eat a bowl of cereal. I don't notice those "hunger pangs" when I eat some sort of protein for breakfast. I recently tried a Jimmy Dean D-Lites Turkey Sausage Muffin and felt satisfied and energetic all morning. I especially loved that I could have a healthy, hot breakfast that I could eat in the car on my way to work.
All throughout the day I want to:
*Drink lots of water. There are so many great health benefits of drinking water and I need to end my diet soda addiction!
*Have fresh fruit and veggies available for quick healthy snacks.
In the PM I want to:
*Limit my carbohydrates after 3PM.
*Go to the gym and do strength training 3-5 times per week while my kids are at karate.
*Get to bed before 10 PM on weeknights to get at least 8 hours of sleep.
That seems do-able! The New Year is all about re-evaluating where you are now and how to make little changes that can add up to a better and healthier you!
I hope you you will take some time and write down some of the healthy choices you want to make this year.
