However, that time is coming around for many Buckeyes to head back to campus for fall quarter. That means late nights studying, crisp leaves in the oval, warm coffee in hand while walking around campus, and of course FOOTBALL!! :) All these things scream fall to me, and while I HATE to see summer go, I love it when fall rolls around.All the delicious smells and sights, bonfires and fairs, carving pumpkins and picking out costumes for Halloween.
With the change of seasons from summer to fall, I always made a 'goals list', usually pertaining to school..Don't procrastinate
Get good grades
Pack a lunch
Go to the gym between class
Usually something like that. :)
So why don't we all welcome in the change of the season with a list of resolutions that are positive and attainable, to enrich our lives and better our health so we can be 10 steps ahead of the game by the time cold bleary January rolls around and we start thinking we ought to lose weight and eat better after all those Christmas cookies made our clothes too tight, and *gasp* bikini season is right around the corner again! ;)
Last year I made a resolution to stick with my lifting program for 8 weeks, even if I wanted to try something else. I got great results and felt stronger and leaner than ever at Christmas.
So grab your smart phone or tablet or pen and paper and jot down a couple goals that you want to work on. Make them specific!!
Go to the gym for 45 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before or after work
Try one new healthy recipe a week for dinner
Train for a 5k
Walk the dog every evening and make it a family affair
Replace pop at lunch with water
Replace the grande Starbucks Pumpkin spice latte with whip for a tall non-fat version! (I think I blog about the Pumpkin Spice latte every year ;))
try to skip ones like
go to bed earlier
Make them specific and measurable!
Did you go to the gym? Have you drank any pop? Did you try new recipes?
The goals can be ANYTHING you want. No matter how small. If it's important to you, jot it down and make it happen.
Let others in on your goals! Tell your family and friends and coworkers. Get them to join you.
Surround yourself with positivity, write notes to yourself, post motivating pictures, prepare to meet your goals.
If you seem to make the same resolutions every New years and they always seem to fail, think about WHY, try tackling it from a different angle. Never make it to the gym after work? Go before, or during your lunch.
Good luck guys! Feel free to share anything on my facebook page as you make and meet your goals! Pictures, ideas, inspiration, anything! We're all in this together!
Happy end of summer! xoxoxo
