New Year’s Resolutions: Week 8

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Last year, I wrote a weekly plan to get you on track for a healthy and active life. If you followed the plan last week, then here is the link to this week’s plan:

The Short Version:

  • Get support and accountability: Join Weight Watchers, Overeaters Anonymous, or some other support group. Find a friend who will hold your feet to the fire.
  • If you aren’t at your recommended daily caloric average, reduce it by another 100 calories. Write down EVERYTHING you eat including measurements and calories.
  • Choose lean protein and whole grains.
  • Save enough calories to eat two teaspoons of healthy oil each day.
  • Avoid the feeling of deprivation by finding non-food activities to nurture yourself EVERY day.
  • Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
  • Save enough calories to eat two servings of dairy products each day.
  • Increase your speed. Walk/run 2.0 miles five days this week. Remember consistency is more important than speed, but you need to make sure you’re pushing yourself.
  • Give yourself kudos for coming this far.

This is the last week of this program, that’s why it’s essential to get a program for support and accountability.
