New Year, New You!

It's 2015 and time to make realistic, reachable goals.  As a family, hold each other accountable and get healthy and stay healthy!  

1. On a poster board or large piece of paper, write New Year, New You! Write numbers 1-30 on poster board. Hang this on your refrigerator. 
2. Every morning, have each person in the  family write down one realistic goal for the day. 

Example : A. Dad writes on #1- Eat a vegetable today. B. Mom writes on #2- Add fruit to my lunch today. C. Brother writes on #3- Exercise for 30 minutes today. 

At the end of the day, evaluate yourself with your family.  If you completed your goal, place a sticker next to your resolution for the day. 

As a family, come up with a prize for whomever gets the most stickers at end of January.  Also create a  healthy chore to do if you don't complete a resolution one day. An example can be 20 jumping Jacks or a one-minute wall sit .  Try to hold each other accountable in a positive way.  Be supportive. The goal is to instill a healthy routine which will hopefully become a natural routine.  After 30 days of this, eating and exercising will have been incorporated daily.
