It's time for a reality check... it is now the 20th of January. It is the 20th day after many people have committed to making healthy changes in their lives. Some people went all in, making huge, ambitious changes. Others said "screw that, I'm fine just the way I am." And then there's me. I didn't make a New Years Resolution. I didn't make big, huge changes to my life, my lifestyle or my daily routine.
Sure, I joined a gym. Sure, I tried some new classes. (But who wouldn't when the joiners fee is free and the classes you tried normally have a fee?!) If you've been following my Live Well With Kell page you know I love the beginning of a new month. I even love a Monday. It's a clean slate full of opportunities to set healthy intentions.
So guess what? The 2016 version of Kelly isn't all that different than the 2015 version of Kelly. Except for one thing. I've made one small adjustment to my routine. I've started setting a timer on my work calendar to get up and move. Some days I do lunges, some days I just take a quick walk, some days I do squats, sometimes I just stand up at my desk rather than sit.
That's the change I've made to my routine. I still workout in the morning. I still prioritize veggies, but don't mind a sprinkle of cheese every now and then, and I still drink lots of water. Sure I have too much coffee from time to time, but that's the next adjustment. Sure I hit snooze on my alarm clock every now and then, but I'm not going to stress about it.
Today I challenge you to take a look at your day, your routine and your habits. Is there just ONE thing you could make an adjustment to? I'm not even saying go all in and make a huge change... I'm saying adjust. That's it. Small adjustments are going to make big differences in the long run. Small adjustments are where healthy habits are cultivated.
