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

I originally shared this on Instagram onย January 1st, but I wanted to share here too in the hopes of reaching more people! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Happy 2020! Cheers to a new year & a new decade!๐Ÿฅ‚ Do yourself a favor & vow to NOT diet in 2020. There are so many better health goals to make this year! Plus, diets donโ€™t work anyway. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Small, changes over time are more sustainable. โ €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: โ €
โ €
1. Drink 70 or more oz of water daily. ๐Ÿ’ฆ โ €
โ €
2. Eat breakfast daily, even if itโ€™s initially just something small like a piece of fruit. ๐ŸŒ โ €
โ €
3. Aim for at least one fruit ๐ŸŽ or vegetable ๐Ÿฅฆ at every meal. โ €
โ €
4. Pack your lunch more days than you buy it each week. ๐Ÿฅ— โ €
โ €
5. Cook one homemade recipe per week. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ โ €
โ €
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. โ˜•๏ธ โ €
โ €
7. Donโ€™t do workouts you hate. Find one or two types you like & vow to move your body at least 5x /week for 30 minutes. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿšฒ ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ โ €
โ €
8. Make plans with friends at least twice a month. ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ 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. โ˜บ๏ธโ €
โ €
9. Start a new hobby this year or bring back an old one! Maybe itโ€™s knitting ๐Ÿงถ, drawing โœ๐Ÿป, joining a local team โšฝ๏ธ, or joining a book club. ๐Ÿ“š Hobbies are great for your mental health & can be another way to socialize! โ €
โ €
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. ๐Ÿ˜ด โ €
โ €
What are some of your non-diet health goals for 2020?! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป
