January 5, 2018

I don't know about you but I can't believe it's 2018. It seems like last year
went by so fast. I don't normally do the traditional New Years resolutions, but
I do like to use a new year, new month, and sometimes a new day as a way
to regroup, and set myself towards the goals that I want to accomplish.

So today I'm going to give you a few "Goal Getters" to help you get your
year's goals moving in the right direction.

LOG YOUR JOURNEY

One of the first things that people want to do, when they set a goal is to acheive it.
I know it sounds kind of stupid for me to say that, but how many times have you
wanted to do something but you get discouraged because you've tried in the past
and failed.... over and over again. Maybe it's because you didn't write it down.

Not just a note or a list, but an on-going journal to motivate you to push forward.

Writing it down will help you make your goal more tangible by seeing it on paper
before you even do it.  By journaling along the way, it helps you fine tune and map
out your path each day you write down your progress.

I'm new at doing this, but I've started using a Life Planner by Erin Condren, and a
Dwell Studio journal that I got from Staples, to chart my path to get my goals
accomplished.
GOAL GETTERS
ways to help keep your goals for the
new year!

EAT BETTER

Everyone wants to improve their worth. Better job, better pay, better relationship
but many times we short change ourselves.

So I had to take a look at myself and ask if I've been paying
myself what I'm
worth...and unfortunately the answer is (swallowing hard) NO!

I don't take care of my health...even though I know what I should be doing.
I don't pamper and beautify myself, unless I need it for work...even though
that's what I do for a living.
I know, I know....I'm busy and I have a family, so I don't have a lot of time. But let's face it, it's an excuse. I've been
lazy and slacking on ME!  

If I was dating me, I'd breakup with myself.

A great way to value myself is to eat better. So I've been learning how to use
House Foods organic Tofu,
which is made from US grown soybeans that contain no GMO.

If you've never used tofu before (I haven't), you don't have to worry, the House Foods web site has a lot of great
recipes to try that are easy to create. I've made some yummy Chipotle Maple Glazed Tofu , which I  like to
eat on my salad, and I've even made
pizza!

It makes me feel good, knowing that I'm taking better care of myself.
BE MORE ACTIVE

I'm going to be truthful, I need to loose weight. Even though I'm always on the
go, because I'm constantly traveling, I'm not active in the manner that I need
to be which is through exercising.

Looking good can be a great way to motivate you into action. You know the
saying "all dressed up and no where to go?" Well, I feel that dressing up can
make you WANT to go...move....and shake things up! So I stopped by
JCPenney and got a lot of active wear from Xersion.

Xersion has stylish activewear that is affordable. Since I'm no size 0, it's also
great to know that they carry good looking outfits that is for every
body...including mine.
BETTER SMILE

Not everyone is confident with their smile. If your goal is to better your smile this year you
have options. Getting braces or invisible aligners can be costly and time consuming, with
all of the visits to the dentist.

I've partnered with the
SmileDirectClub.com to let you know that they make it easy and
more affordable because your aligners are delivered directly to your doorstep at 60%
less than other options.

This is how it works, you can go to their web site and have an at-home impressions kit
sent to you, or just stop by a SmileShop location for a 3D scan.

If you are a candidate for aligners a dental professional will create a treatment plan
specifically for you and ship them directly to you along with some premium whitening
supplies.

If you start in January your smile will be the way you want by Summer.
I'm going to try to post my progress of my weight loss on my blog this year, to help me be more accountable.

To help you with your goals, I'm going to giveaway some journals from Staples from the Dwell Studios collection.
