Nutritional Goals 2010

It's a new year and if you're anything like me, you're already jotting down all the things you hope to accomplish in the next 12 months. So much to do and so little time to do it in.

And if you're like most Americans (including myself), your resolutions include some form of the following:
Loose Weight
Get Fit
Look Great in a Bikini
Improve those Abs
Lower Cholesterol (Improve Heart Health, etc).

So wouldn't it make sense to outline some specific goals in reaching those overall resolutions of better health? And would it make to sense to make improvements in areas that would bring lasting change?

That's why I'm hosting a Nutritional Goals 2010 Carnival next Tuesday, January 12th. A place where we can share and encourage each other in this journey that we're on.

Carnival Information

I will be hosting a carnival here on the twelfth of January (a Tuesday). If you would like to be involved, post your 2010 Nutritional Goals on your blog, including a link back to my blog and a link to the Carnival post. Focus should be on how you plan to improve you nutritional intake in the next year.

Please feel free to spread the word about the carnival.

Tips for Making Goals
1. Make your goals achievable. Start with something small that you can change this month, then another for next month. Don't write down goals that are so daunting you don't even attempt them.

2. Make goals that you are willing to commit to. If you have no interest in sprouting seeds, leave that for another time. This is not the time to make goals simply to impress other bloggers.

3. Develop a loose timeline for achieving some or all of your goals. Do you want to achieve one a month or just incorporate all within the first 6 months?

4. Share these goals with others. Here's where the accountability of blogging comes in. You're sharing with all of us the changes that you are purpousing to make in your life. Additionally share with someone in your real life. Ask them to keep you accountable as well.

5. Understand that these goals are a work in progress. Habits are not changed overnight. These goals are meant to be working goals, working toward a better you in 2010.

So join us next week to unveil the Nutritional Goals you will work toward in the next year. I'm excited to see what you come up and be encouraged by how we're all working toward better health in the new year.
