Here are 10 things that you can do to stay and feel young
“My lifestyle right now is “survival mode”. I start with an exercise plan but then don’t carry through.
Right now I want to say that I will start out walking at least 3x a week. I know that doesn’t sound like much.
But I am actually on my feet throughout the day at any given time. I will try to do much more than the 3x ….and I have done that before. So this is my goal for the month.” Joye
“My inactivity has led to weight gain.” Kim
“I like the idea of tackling small goals together. Mom of three with the youngest being 7 months old and still have not made it a priority get healthy again. I miss it! I’m starting now! Will commit to walking 30 minutes a day” Ginger
“I decided this year instead of just making it a goal to “lose weight”, that I want to focus on improving my health numbers, no matter what the scale tells me, meaning that I want my cholesterol, blood pressure, A1C, etc. to be better than they were last year. So that kind of falls right in line with this – instead of just focusing on my weight, I am focusing on my overall health.” Ginger
“I’ve been thinking I need some sort of a “life coach” to help me get things back on track.” Amy В
No matter how old you are, you can stay young at heart for as long as you want to
“Every year it seems that I make the same resolution to get fit & I never exercise! This year WILL be different!! My exercise goal is to exercise 3x a week for at least 20 minutes & gradually work up to more days.” Cathy
“I always end up falling off the wagon because I make goals that are just too big, but my aim is to make it a permanent, life-long habit, so I’m keeping it very simple this time:
My goal is to exercise for a minimum of 20 minutes a session, and never take more than one day off. If I don’t feel like exercising, I tell myself that I can just do 20 minutes. I started doing this about 2 months ago, and it is working very well for me! I usually only end up taking a day or two off per week, as it turns out, AND my workouts are usually longer than my requisite 20″ Koree
“I’ve met my exercise & fruit & veggies goal! I’m feeling much more energised, less heavy & enjoying my colourful meals more!” Maria
“My goal is just to be more consistently active – walking, pilates, whatever I can fit in after a day at school!” Shailynn
“I have stayed on track, and met my goal, losing 22 lbs. the first month. I love seeing myself literally transforming. Excited to make new goals, and achieve them, and make this my healthiest year yet.” Ginger W
“I found a workout buddy to go with and she is a great motivator, and we both are pretty good about not letting the other bail on our gym dates.
Through the more consistent attendance I find I’m enjoying it even more (maybe even looking forward to it? ). I finally see myself actually reaching my Birthday goal: Down to 170 by my 40th in September.” Luba
“I’ve been doing pretty well with my exercising goals. Only on one morning instead of a planned jog I ended up having coffee with a dear friend ( in my jogging clothes !). But I guess that’s where “God wanted me”, as she really needed to talk. I also went swimming twice with my kids, in the circumstances where I’d have usually said: Let’s stay home ! ( & would have felt pity for myself for not being able to exercise!)
I’m still concentrating hard on my fruits/ veggies at every meal goal! I’m getting better at it and I feel SO much better as well! I still have to improve my snacks though. This new habit makes me change the way I shop: I have now a weekly planned shopping stop at our local farmer’s market. I’m fitting it into our budget as well… Somehow the fruit & veggies from the market are tastier!:) “
“I’ve done 10 cups of water each day for the past five days. I’m feeling so much better (although I’ve also cut out a lot of the junk food too). Planning on keeping this up. My body seems to need this much!”
“I’ve realized how poorly I eat. I have family members with type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. I have recently started tracking my food I eat and noticing that most of my foods I consume are processed, and high sugars. Sodas, breads, pasta etc. How can I cut back? And how do you begin. I consumed a lot of sugar today (sodas, breads, and cookies), and have had no energy and felt blah. How do I begin? What do I need to eat instead of processed foods, pizza, pasta etc. We are on a tight budget, so how can I find healthier foods cheaply? “
The biological clock may not stop ticking but you can forget about your age and enjoy life along with the many blessings that come your way.
