Do you set goals for yourself? Does it work? Do you reach them?
I work with people every week on their goal setting as a health coach. Yet, I don't always succeed at setting goals for myself!
Last month I made a goal to do oil pulling every day and have!!! I am noticing many of the health benefits of oil pulling which is great. I fully intend to keep it up. Now I have a new goal for the month!
In my oil pulling post, I said I was going to set a new goal each week. Well, I have realized that is a bit ambitious. Goals should be attainable, right? So, my new thing will be a new goal for the MONTH! That way I can really work on the goal and have it become part of my routine.
This month, my goal is to have a green juice or smoothie EVERY DAY. Think I can do it???
Why am I doing this? I am a believer that a majority of our food should be eaten…not drunk. And I do eat plenty of vegetables. But I really think I could have more.
Also, I don't know about you, but in the winter, I just don't eat as many veggies. I would like to, but without my garden, my CSA, farmer's markets, it just seems like more of a hassle. (That is lazy, I know, but just being honest!)
There is actually a lot of controversy out there over whether drinking your veggies (either in juice form or smoothie form) is good for you. I try not to get caught up in all of that. I am not juicing or making smoothies to make up for a poor diet. I am using this in addition to all my other real food I ingest!
Why green drinks? Green vegetables are the food we are missing most in our diets. And they are the #1 food you can eat regularly to improve your health!
I will share next week on the benefits of green vegetables and some of my favorite juice/smoothie recipes!
Until then…wish me luck! Want to join me???
