My tips for living happy, healthy, and green!

Happy New Year!

I know I am a little late on this but life has been very crazy!

As many of you out there my plans for the new year include health and fitness. My goal is to finish loosing the weight I put on having my baby boy (almost there!), tone up, transform our diet to a 75% raw diet, and run a half marathon by July!

For the fitness/weight loss:

Spend 1 hour 5 days a week at the gym. My gym workout includes 20-30 mins of cardio and then 30 mins of free weights. I usually rotate weights from upper body, abs, and lower body. To get more time running to prepare for running a half marathon I am going to begin to rotate a day in where I do cardio for the entire hour. Since I get bored easily I try to rotate the way I do my cardio….treadmill, track, elliptical machine, Arc trainer. Then I use free weights and different exercise balls for my strength training. I also enjoy throwing a day of yoga into my workout.

For our diet:

I am slowing trying to convert most of our diet to raw fruits and veggies. I am learning different ways to do this. It takes a little getting used to. I have spent my whole life thinking that things need to be cooked to be the main part of the meal. I am starting by making a smoothie for breakfast, fruit or veggie snack, salad for lunch, carrot juice snack, and a dinner consisting of at least half raw veggies.

Other 2011 goals:

  • Get better at keeping in touch with friends that are not local.
  • Get my personal trainer certificate
  • Take one class towards becoming a registered dietitian
  • Spend more time working on this blog!
  • Build my Shaklee business

Here is to a great 2011 where life may take us! Good luck to everyone with there New Years resolutions/goals.
