My excellent friend, Sarah – aka “Miss GoodbyeGluten” – is on the quest to eliminate gluten from her diet and improve herself by putting better quality foods into her system, working out daily and documenting her experience.
Her enthusiasm and drive straight out of the gate has me inspired on multiple levels. 1. My butt is back on my blog (Yay!) and 2. I, too, want to improve my health and stay dedicated to clean eating and fitness, even when I’m faced with an increase in demanding deadlines, 12 hour workdays and the occasional all-nighter. (Ummm…let’s just say it’s been a stressful month…)
I figured a great way to stay reminded to take care of myself would be to write a list of positive happy health “resolutions.” Gretchen Rubin does something similar in The Happiness Project and swears that declaring and revisiting her resolutions often is what helped her achieve personal change.
So, here I go! Here are my basic “Resolutions for Happy Health:”
1. Move. As much as you can.
2. Love and respect what God has given you to work with.
3. Strength is sexy.
4. Sweat is a beautiful thing.
5. Sunshine is a cure-all.
6. Lean protein, veggies & fruit…always.
7. Make time for yourself.
8. Water = life.
9. Stress less and practice patience.
10. Push yourself mentally so that you can go the extra mile physically.
Wish me luck! Especially with #9…that’s my Boss Battle.
