Do yourself a favor & vow to not diet in 2020!

I originally shared this on Instagram onΒ January 1st, but I wanted to share here too in the hopes of reaching more people! πŸ™‚

Happy 2020! Cheers to a new year & new decade!

Happy 2020! Cheers to a new year & a new decade!πŸ₯‚ Do yourself a favor & vow to NOT diet in 2020. There are so many better health goals to make this year! Plus, diets don’t work anyway. πŸ™ƒ Small, changes over time are more sustainable. β €And since we are three weeks into the new decade I am hoping if any of you start a diet you are reconsidering it.
How about trying the following this year instead of dieting: β €
β €
1. Drink 70 or more oz of water daily. πŸ’¦ β €
β €
2. Eat breakfast daily, even if it’s initially just something small like a piece of fruit. 🍌 β €
β €
3. Aim for at least one fruit 🍎 or vegetable πŸ₯¦ at every meal. β €
β €
4. Pack your lunch more days than you buy it each week. πŸ₯— β €
β €
5. Cook one homemade recipe per week. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ β €
β €
6. Bring coffee from home or make at work/school more days than you buy it each week. Drink it plain or add your own creamer. β˜•οΈ β €
β €
7. Don’t do workouts you hate. Find one or two types you like & vow to move your body at least 5x /week for 30 minutes. πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ 🚲 πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ β €
β €
8. Make plans with friends at least twice a month. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ Friendship is so important for overall health! Bonus points if you workout or cook with your friends. Helping each other develop healthy habits is rewarding. β˜ΊοΈβ €
β €
9. Start a new hobby this year or bring back an old one! Maybe it’s knitting 🧢, drawing ✍🏻, joining a local team ⚽️, or joining a book club. πŸ“š Hobbies are great for your mental health & can be another way to socialize! β €
β €
10. Get 7 or more hours of sleep each night. Adequate sleep will only help you be a better athlete, worker, student, spouse, parent, etc. 😴 β €

What are some of your non-diet health goals for 2020?! πŸ‘‡πŸ»
