I Do…

I am so excited!!! My daughter got married this weekend!

It was an incredible celebration. Hearing Niki and Chris exchange their vows and say “I do” made me think a lot about commitment.

And of course, I had to find a way to tie a current event into a teachable moment about health & wellness. Full disclosure, (don’t worry Barb) I wasn’t thinking about this blog during the ceremony.

But there’s a great lesson to learn or simply remind ourselves of.


Here’s a commitment example.

We want to get in shape by building healthier habits, but somehow life gets in the way. And then tests our true commitment to the change we want to make.

These challenges can disrupt our good intentions, but hopefully not derail them entirely.

So, speaking of “I do’s”, what is something you’ve been wanting to do to improve your health & vitality, but for whatever reason, haven’t been able to accomplish? Need some ideas?

Here’s a sample start doing list:

  • Walk 10K a day
  • Drink 3 to 4 liters of water
  • Add one more workout every week
  • Get 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep every night
  • Eat one more fruit or vegetable with every meal

Or, you can approach it from the other side.

Instead of “I do”, try… “I don’t” as an alternative.

Here’s a sample stop doing list:

  • Quit smoking
  • Eliminate sugary drinks
  • Stop going to the drive-thru
  • Replace a processed snack with nuts
  • Avoid late nights so you can exercise tomorrow

As with any habit, pick one and focus on it for the next month. Identify WHY you want to make this change, and then just do it.

Take action and track your WINS!

So what new commitment will you make this week?

Congratulations Niki and Chris!!! Wishing you all the best as you enter this new chapter in your lives…
