Resolutions That Fit YOU

posted by sbrown

God didn’t make us with a cookie cutter.  Every single one of us is different.  Your New Year’s resolutions should fit YOU and your personality.  We’ve talked before about ways the different personalities can approach losing weight and getting fit.

People tend to be either Blitzers or Baby Steppers. Click here to read about Blitzers. Blitzers are goal oriented people who thrive on challenges.  They are the folks who really get into New Year’s resolutions — at least throughout January.  Blitzers tend to go all out, and then burn out.

If you are a Blitzer, you can reach your goals for 2012, if you keep in mind both your strengths and weaknesses.  Since you enjoy going a bit overboard, go ahead and jump in!  Just plan to fall back to a reasonable program when you run low on steam.  Don’t give up and go back to your bad habits. So write out your big plan and also write out your fallback plan.  You might want to work out vigorously every day and stick to a stringent diet plan.  But have a more generous, low-glycemic eating plan ready and falling back to three times a week exercise, or a simple walking program, is perfectly acceptable.

Leaders are usually Blitzers.  They do best when they have someone following them.  Now is the time to find out if anyone is interested in a weight loss support group or if anyone else wants to join an exercise class or join the gym.  Knowing people depend on you will keep you faithful and headed toward your goal.

Knowing yourself and doing what works for YOU can make this your most successful year yet!

Eating to live and living for Christ,

Susan Jordan Brown

Recipe Day -- Good-For-You Chocolate Cake
I looked at the recipe in disbelief.  NINE eggs? Surely that was a misprint.  Only 3/4 cup flour in a cake?  Not likely.  As I studied about coconut flour, though, I saw that, yes, it does take that many eggs to make a successful cake with this healthy type of flour, and it takes a much smaller

Climbing Into Jesus' Wheelbarrow
Once there was a famous tight-rope walker.  He stood before a huge crowd by Niagara Falls, preparing to do his most daring feat. “How many of you believe that I can walk across Niagara Falls on this tightrope?” he asked the people gathered there. “We believe you can do it!” they shout

How Do You Know When to Stop Eating?
“We asked 150 Parisians how they knew they were through with dinner,” food psychologist Brian Wansink, PhD, said.  “They said, ‘When we’re full.’  When we asked 150 Chicagoans that they said, ‘When the plate is empty.’” * No wonder 2/3 of American adults are overweight and hal

Making Plans to Succeed
H.A.L.T. -- Don’t get too hungry, too angry, too lonely, or too tired.  But how do you do that?  How do you avoid getting in a dangerously tempting position? It takes planning.  Start planning before you even head to the grocery store.  Look over the Green-for-Go low glycemic lists. Click h

No More "If Onlys"
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.- Carl Bard If only -- If only.  How the “if onlies” plague us! “If I had only kept up that healthy eating and exercise plan I started five years ago I would look terrific now.”
