Alright, you’re convinced to set a goal for February that revolves around your nutrition. Now what?
Well, as long as I’m setting rules and parameters for the Goals Board this month, I’m going to take things one step further and set another rule: This month, I want your goal to be something that you do (or don’t do…more on that in a sec) every single day.
If that last bit fills you with anxiety, you’re not alone. But look – February is the shortest month of the year. And we are what we do consistently. So this month, as we focus on nutrition, we will lean into our goals every day.
You can pick something that you’ll DO every day:
- Eat vegetables at every meal
- Eat protein at every meal
- Eat breakfast every day
- Track your food in the MyFitnessPal app
- Post a screenshot of your MyFitnessPal macros to the “Rocky Top Nutrition Alliance” Facebook group
Or (and this is easier for some people) you can pick something that you DON’T do each day:
- No sugar
- No grains (or even just “no grains at breakfast”)
- No late-night snacking after dinner
- No caffeine after noon
These are just a few suggestions. Create one for yourself that is relevant to you as well as attainable.
Now that you have your February goal, the last step is a fun one: Get yourself a calendar (if you don’t have one already). Put it on your wall in a prominent location. For the month of February, every day that you successfully do your goal, cross off the day with a bright, gawdy, red X. As the days go on, you’ll watch all the X’s connect into a chain across each week. The goal is to not break the chain.
Let’s do this! We’re all in it together. Jot your February nutrition goal on the Goals Board, and get that calendar ready. Let’s make February 2018 the Month of Nutrition!
