June Goals

It is June, which means I need new goals!

My awesome healthy living group is still kicking. We would love to have you join the conversation on facebook!

Here were our guidelines for goal setting:

“- BE SPECIFIC! Instead of “I will eat healthier” think “I will cut out fried foods.”
– BE REALISTIC! Don’t set yourself up for failure. Pick goals that you can easily chart and have a chance of succeeding at.
– BE DIVERSE! Healthy living isn’t just about food. Try to include an exercise goal, a mental health/spiritual goal, and maybe even an ecological goal!
– BE HEALTH-MINDED! This group is NOT about fostering unhealthy expectations of perfect bodies. It is about supporting yourself in feeling your best!

Also, it can be helpful to come up with a PLAN that will actually help you meet your goals, as well as any specific types of support you would like from the group. I look forward to hearing everyone’s goals!”
