{Healthier Lifestyle Journey} Family Fit Lifestyle Month Tips for January

January will ALWAYS be some type of fit month, diet month, healthy eating month and the like because of everyone thinking that a new year is a new chance to make changes. Do you set new goals for January 1st? What are they? If you have health and exercise on your mind you can get some good ideas here on my blog in my healthier lifestyle journey series as well as all over the internet. My advice is to take it all in and do what works best for you and your family.

Healthier Lifestyle Journey

This new start isn't just for the mom and dad but for the family. Take this time to include your kids in your new healthier lifestyle journey. I love these 5 tips and Ideas to get the family fit! If you have more to share, feel free to leave ideas and links in the comment box below. I'm always looking for more ideas.

healthier lifestyle journey

Have the right gear:  Besides a stocked fridge of healthy food and a plan, make sure you’re equipped and heading to the gym or on your next walk with the right gear, like these 4id PowerBudz headphones. Created for optimal sound, these buds also light up to keep night-running a safe adventure and come with 3 settings: pulse, flash, and off. The LED lights built into the earbuds will be sure to get you noticed while you jam out and clock in miles. ($14.95 at 4id.com).

Stay safe: While you’re clocking in fitness miles, sending the kids off to sports practice or heading out on a camping trip, keep yourself in-check and safe with the right gear. Hope Paige, creator of stylish medical ID accessories has created an athletic silicone watch band to keep users safe while tracking their time. With this stylish band available in 4 different colors, you’ll never miss a beat and will stay safe wherever you go. ($21.95 at HopePaige.com)

Snack Smart: When creating healthy resolutions with the family, fitness isn’t the only way to lose – make sure you’re snacking on the right nutrients! USANA’s NEW new gluten-free, low glycemic, protein snacks will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your diet with 11 grams of protein. Snacks are great in lunch boxes or on the go, non-GMO, contain no trans-fats, and come in three delicious flavors including Choco Chip,Peanutty Bliss, and Fudge Delite which are perfect for everyone in the family! ($32.95 at usana.com).

Power Up for Parents: Sometimes weight loss, or even getting up and moving, is much easier for the kids. To keep yourself focused, powered up and energized, try drinking a Celsius 15-20 minutes before your workout for a boost of energy and Cenergy’s Amino Plex post-workout powder to reduce soreness and repair tissue.  Celsius is scientifically proven to reduce body fat, boost your metabolism and even burn more calories during your session while Cenergy’s Amine Plex will will reduce soreness, elevate ATP levels and promote additional fat burn as well as increase future endurance levels. ($23.99 at cenergynutrition.com) and ($6.99 for a 4-pack at Celsius.com).

Stick to your Goals: No matter what, achieving a healthy plan for families is all about mindset and a positive attitude! Dr. Coral Arvon, Psychologist and Director of Behavioral Health and Wellness at Pritikin states that to achieve resolutions, make achieveable, small, short term goals the whole family is aligned with. Coral states that, “small, short-term goals are the most effective and taking resolutions one step at a time is the best way to succeed!”
