New Year…New You!

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, New Year’s resolutions are a good thing. If you struggle to believe that, it’s probably because of a history of failed resolutions. This year, however, you owe it to yourself to become the new person you want to be. Not in order to impress other people. You’re going to do it to remind yourself that yes, you can do whatever you put your mind to—you can become a better person.

Ready to get started on the road to a new you? Keep reading to find out what you’ve got to do this the year to make the new you happen!

Talk about It

After a few years of failed resolutions, you may want to keep your plans a secret. But don’t! If your family and friends don’t know what your goals are, you won’t have their support in your journey. They may scoff or snigger when they find out you have big plans for the coming year, but don’t let them get you down. Most likely, they’re jealous. So whether you want to be more committed to your gym routine, eat better, or be more patient with your kids, don’t keep your resolution for a new you to yourself!

Start with Pre-Tests

Start today with some pre-tests. Once a day, find a way to implement your new lifestyle into your routine. That may mean skipping dessert one night. Or maybe it’s letting your spouse have the remote control. Then again, it could be chewing on a carrot instead of going for a cigarette break when stressed. Whatever it is, scoring these small victories lets you know that you can indeed become the new person in the New Year that you desire.

Expect Success

There’s a reason New Year’s resolutions are the punch line for countless jokes. There are people, however, who beat the odds and stick with their resolutions. This time around, you’re going to be one of them. Not because you’re better than other people who can’t keep from overeating. And not because you’re smarter than people who don’t read a book every month (like you’re planning to do this year). The reason you’re going to succeed is because you want it, and nothing is going to stop you. When you expect success and realize it is possible—which it is—you’re prepared to do what it takes to find that success. Now go for it!

Go for the Right Goals

Before you set a resolution for a new you in the New Year, take stock of your life to determine what would give you the best bang for your resolution buck. Already spending more time than you’d like away from the family? Maybe you should resolve to work your way into a position at work that requires less travel. Thinking you need to lose more weight when all your friends think you’re exceptionally thin? Maybe you should work on adding muscle to your frame instead. Only when you have the right goals can your new you be the best you.

Have Some Fun

Sometimes, creating a new you can be tiring. After all, you’ve spent a lifetime creating the old you, and your old self will not leave without a fight. When your lifestyle changes feel like too much and you’re drooling for ice cream, jonesing for a smoke, or itching to ignore your family and stare at your phone, turn your focus to something fun. Grab a funny movie, go on a hike, hang out with friends—just do something you enjoy! When you’re done, your head will be cleared and you’ll again be ready to shed the old you in favor of the new you in the New Year!

A Plan for you & Your Lifestyle!

Use these tips to meet your goals:

  • Meet with me to create a plan that works.  If there is no plan there is no direction and you won't reach your goal.
  • Do you have a support person(s) Someone to hold you accountable, keep you on track, be there for you if times get frustrating?
  • Ask yourself if you are truly ready or this.  If you want to change you have to be willing to change.  Change is not always easy because we are doing something different, out of our routine, outside of our comfort zone.  But we are changing because we don't like where we are at now.  
  • Stay positive!  Stay .focused!  Stay in the mindset you have right now!  I want a change, I want to improve, I want to feel better.  Now change that want to WILL!  I WILL change, I WILL improve, I WILL feel better!  I WILL DO THIS!!!!
Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Here’s a great snack or appetizer to share with friends and family during holiday festivities. The nitrate-free bacon and scallops contain healthy protein that will provide usable nutrients for your day. To keep on track with your diet, stay away from appetizers that are fried or filled with carbohydrates.

What you need
Serves 12

4 Tablespoons coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
dash of sweet paprika

6 slices nitrate free bacon, cut in half lengthwise

2. Over very low heat, in a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil. Remove from heat and pour into a small bowl. Add the garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.

3. Dip each scallop in the seasoned coconut oil, the wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet.

4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the scallops are cooked through and the bacon is crisp.
