Believe it or not, we are halfway through March. Where does the time go? This is the perfect time to reflect on the goals that we set at the beginning of the month and even the ones we set at the beginning of the year. Since we started the Detox Your Life Challenge in January, where we focus on a different topic each month, it was easy for us to look back at the progress we've made on our goals.
- January (Detox Your Fitness): hit those goals (and yes, we've even been doing yoga once a week!)
- February (Detox Your Money): we hit most of those goals
- March (Detox Your Nutrition): so far so good!
Over the years we've learned to celebrate the little successes and not dwell on the things that we didn't accomplish. Easier said than done, I know!
If you are still struggling with your goals, try to approach them with a progress mindset instead of always seeking perfection. Below are a few of our tips that are quick and easy and will keep you on the right path.
3 Simple Steps to Reach Your Goals
1. Short Workouts
If you are pressed for time, your workouts don't have to be time-consuming. Try this Short but Sweet Sweat Session during the day. It's only 4 minutes of work so you could do it every hour, during your lunch, or during your workout as an active rest. Also, taking on one of our monthly fitness challenges will give you a roadmap for the month and a sense of accomplishment each day! Just keep moving!
2. Easy Swaps
Swap out the sugar and creamer in your coffee and try almond or coconut milk instead. Not ready to completely ditch the creamer? That's okay too. Order grilled chicken instead of fried chicken.
3. Easy Meals
Preparing food in advance is definitely how we have been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so long. Whether you do an entire food prep like we do or just make your breakfast in advance, it all adds up! When you have healthy food on hand it's much easier to stick to your goals. We've even written a Step-by-Step Guide to Meal Prep!
