January came and went !! Many look at a new year as a new start, new goals, new attitude. But we have tendency to fall off that grid or give up. Why? Maybe we aren't specific enough or take on too much or expect too much.

So why not keep it simple? Want to spend more time with your family? Set a date - find something for you to do on Groupon. Want to lose weight? Each week find a certain food or condiment that you could seriously live without. You don't really need soda everyday, or switch up a food that you love with something healthy. Small changes make a big difference. Want to get better at racing? Ask yourself what specifically and realistically can I get better at?  Setting real goals like - I want a sub 2 hour half marathon. See simple? Now just go do it ;)
