Fitness Tip Of The Month: Headline Your Goals With ‘I Can’

Fitness Tip Of The Month: Headline Your Goals With ‘I Can’

By Leslie Barker, The Dallas Morning News (TNS)

At the beginning of a new year, many of us tend to be a bit of a martyr in our self-imposed deprivation: No more smoking. No more eating poorly. No more sitting around like a slug.

You can also put a positive spin on resolutions, which leads to this month’s tip: Preface your goals with “I can.”

You can — eat vegetables and fruits with every meal, maybe. Take the stairs today. Venture outside your exercise comfort zone once a week. Do five push-ups before breakfast. Be gentle with yourself.

When you do that, how can your year start out anything but full of hope, full of promise?
