Ways To Stick To Your Healthier Lifestyle Resolution – And Giveaway!

The Blog Forward Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews

The Blog Forward Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews We’re 5 months into the year 2014.  Did you make a resolution to get fit, or eat healthier this year?  I was tired of the tummy flab that was taking over my middle due to menopause (yep, I said it) and I was feeling pretty weak.  Enough of that I say!  I’m five months into my healthier lifestyle and feel confident I can keep this up.  Here are ways to stick to your healthier lifestyle resolution – and a giveaway! Ways that help me stick to my resolution:

  • Make a standing appointment to exercise.  Try to keep it the same time every day.
  • If you don’t feel like moving tell yourself ‘Let’s just do a couple of minutes’.  I’m sure your body will encourage your mind to stick around and do a few more reps. and you will find you’ve completed a full workout.
  • Remember to drink a full glass of water before eating.
  • You will always feel better about yourself after you exercise.  Remember that!

With regard to food choices I’m enjoying the taste and long lasting full feeling I get from eating Zone Perfect bars.  The taste selection is vast and my girls like them too.  We’ve finally tried Quinoa (keen-wha) that we’ve been hearing about but weren’t sure how to pronounce.  I really like grains so quinoa works out well for me as a smarter nutritional choice over rice.  And now that grill season is here my-oh-my!  My husband grilled Cauliflower and added dashes of seasoning salt, black pepper and the juice of one lemon to create a flavor I’ve never had from cauliflower.  Absolutely delicious and so much better in the nutrition and calorie category over mashed potatoes.  Check out this chart for side dish swap ideas: Ways To Stick To Your Healthier Life Style - And A Giveaway!  Ann Again and again Reviews With my exercising routine, on one hand I’m bummed about the fact that weight is not coming off.  I’ve been exercising for 4 months now, 5 to 6 days a week – a mix of cardio and area specific movements – and have lost a whopping 5 lbs.   But on the other hand I am so much stronger than I was a month ago, let alone 4 months ago, and that feeling of strength is what I absolutely love about exercising.  If weight doesn’t come off, well that’s a drag and it frustrates me, but I won’t stop my workouts because feeling stronger brings me joy and strength and joy is what I want in my life.  (Oh and love, of course!  and a delightful Pinot Gris ;->)

  1. I am bad at committing to an exercise routine 🙁 I do love to exercise to music though, and this portable charger would be great to make sure I’m powered wiith music when I’m ready to exercise via my cell phone and smart devices.

  2. I am really bad about sticking to my exercise commitment. I think it would help if I found the exercise which is right for me. When I am doing well, it is because I got in the habit of doing it. When I have to talk myself into something every day it is not going to happen.
