Default New Year, New Healthy Habits

I always like to start the new year off with a positive outlook and enthusiasm for my health. Over the last five years or so, I've been slowly making changes and I think each one has been an improvement in my overall health. This coming year I think will be about maintaining weight, organizing make-ahead meals, finding new veggie recipes and cutting back a bit more on red meat. I've started re-organizing my pinterest boards (ugh, a huge project) to more easily access recipes and deleting many that don't fit into my diet plan anymore. I want to utilize my electric pressure cooker and crockpot more. Also, I want to start using my spiralizer tool too.

What about you? Have you thought about any changes you want to make, any recipes you want to try out or maybe introducing or eliminating any foods from your diet?

I always look at January as a fresh start, a way to introduce some healthy, positive habits into my lifestyle. Do you?

This year I really hope finally to start with yoga!
Always find some excuses to procrastinate that, and just keep it in my To Do List.

I am going to start the year with Vegan January to see how it goes. Already gluten and mostly grain free so will really be a challenge.

You are an inspiration, Rae-- so many good lifestyle changes.

Felis- yoga is something that I really need to get back into doing too. Yell at me in the Ooos and maybe I will do better this year.

Amsen- good luck on going vegan! My DD is vegetarian and she would love to go vegan too but she adores cheese. She freely admits that it is horrible but she cannot give it up.
If you ever come across good vegan recipes, I would love it if you shared them

Oh, if I start it I'll want to have 'company' with sure, so I will remind to you too, but if I'll still procrastinate will stay quiet, so to not remember for my fail.

I expect to lose around 10 kg, and do aquagym each week

I also want to try yoga this year. There is a yoga studio close to me so am going to book some beginner classes in January.

I've been working out - bodyweight, yoga, hiit, weights and alternating that with the couch to 5k program - so i can gain strength and endurance and just general fitness. That's been going well but the diet has been a struggle. I'm planning to hit that hard in January. Thinking I"m going to give keto another shot!

Everything you mention are all good goals. I fail most of the time. I need to try to loose some weight again. In the past 6 months I've gained some weight back. I need to exercise in order to loose weight.

I agree about Pinterest boards and constantly organizing them. I have found some old pins that are no longer to active pages and I have begun to save the pages as .pdf and put them in folders on my laptop instead. I do go there to search before I google though.

I agree about old recipes and making way for the same in the new. For instance, so many of my recipes in my stash use cream of chicken soup or other soup. That can of soup has who knows what in it and I haven't used those cream soups in a long time. A few weeks ago I learned how to make cream of chicken soup on my own for chicken and dumplings and I loved it! I quickly made it again and froze it for other recipes.

We can do our best and try-- and if we fail, we can start again
