What's the best way to keep those resolutions?

Pujols Kitchen - Tuesday, January 03, 2017



Be realistic by making only one small change each month. 


For example, if you resolved to lose weight in 2017, consider making one small change like drinking more water. When you drink more water, you lose weight because water keeps you feeling full. Once you’ve established a habit of drinking more water, then move on to exercise. Simply walking 20 minutes a day can reduce your risk of diabetes by half. Keep at it and celebrate victories, no matter how small. You can do it!
