I prefer goals over resolutions. Resolutions are so absolute. This year my goal was to improve my posture. I could have a made a resolution to never slotch again – but that isn’t realistic. Instead my goal was much more doable.

I’ve decided to make monthly “resolutions” that have an over-all theme, but also have small much more measurable goals. For example, January’s resolution is to eat healthier (pretty broad, right?). My smaller goals include eat 5 servings of fruits/vegetables daily, eat more whole grains, plan meals ahead & intentionally grocery shop (with a list!), keep a food diary, and cook more from scratch. I hope this helps my entire family team be more successful with our goals this year!
