Crunching the Numbers for Your Healthiest 2016

We’re 3 weeks into the New Year, people. How are those resolutions going?

Is your will-power a force to be reckoned with, or does¬†your lack of motivation beg the question, “why even keep up this charade?”

Or, maybe you’re like me and would rather¬†take a neutral stance on this whole “resolution” business. I believe in setting (and achieving!) positive intentions for self-improvement…but those stereotypical “must-fit-into-skinny-jeans-by-such-and-such-arbitrary-date” goals?¬†Hard pass.

In order for any lifestyle change to have staying power, it’s gotta be 3 things‚ÄĒrealistic,¬†¬†fulfilling and¬†sustainable.¬†

Exhibit A: “I will lose 15 pounds before bikini season.” Slim¬†chance for long-term success. No action plan whatsoever…just wishful thinking,¬†fueled by¬†body shame. And, ultimately¬†doomed to fail.

Exhibit B:¬†“I will engage in regular physical exertion¬†and choose¬†whole foods over processed ingredients because my health takes priority.” Now, this meets all the¬†requirements for success. A clearly stated initiative with tangible benefits and definitive follow-through potential. Ding…ding…ding. We have a winner!

So, in the interest of tackling¬†realistic, fulfilling and sustainable¬†(yep, those magic words are back!) wellness goals throughout 2016, I’ve teamed up with Chobani Simply 100¬ģ Crunch¬†and their “crunch the numbers” fitness campaign.

You don’t need an expensive gym membership or unlimited free time to add more movement into your daily grind. If you’ve got a body and about 30 spare minutes, these 100 calorie-burning activities will be right up your alley. Take that, New Year’s¬†resolutions! (mic drop‚ÄĒoptional.)
