New Spring Resolutions: The Plan for Eat.

Happy Tuesday and welcome to today's assignment for creating your New Spring Resolutions. Yesterday, you created a goal for your physical activity between now and November 30, 2011. Today, we're going to do the same for your food and nutrition.

The assignment is simple. In your NSR journal complete the following:
  • Eat.: By November 30, 2011, I will (enter your goal).  
Some ideas to help you along...
  • Eat at least 7 servings of vegetables each day
  • Eat processed food less than 3 times per week
  • Make my own lunch at least 4 times per week
  • Eat fast food less no more than once per month
  • Learn to cook one new dish per week
  • Reduce the amount of red meat to 1 or 2 times per week
  • Eat foods with sugar less than 4 times per week
  • Have less than 3 cans of soda
  • Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day
The possibilities are endless! What you may notice is the sample goals above are specific and measurable. You are much more likely to achieve your goals if you make the goal very clear and something you can count. Otherwise, you may be left to "think" you're doing better (which is kinda like cheating). Remember, your goal for today is to create your goal. You can, of course, have more than one goal, just remember you're best served by making small changes you can stick with over time.

Until tomorrow...
