Setting Health Goals for 2019 using the Erin Condren Life Planner

  1. Jane says:

    I’ve heard about Erin’s planners…they look great. I’m a huge believer in writing things down and breaking it all into small. specific, doable steps. Good luck with all of your goals!

    I’ve been doing the intermittent fasting for well over a year and its a game changer. Simplified, I eat all three of my meals within an 8 hour window. Happily, you’re sleeping 8 hours (hopefully!!), and then you simply have to manage those other 8 hours. I postpone breakfast as long as I can and that’s pretty easy as I’m not super hungry when I wake up. So I have my last meal roughly at 8:00 p.m. If you feel like you are dying, and like you said, habits to break after a few weeks, you can have some broth which makes you feel like you are filling your stomach. And the meals—eat sensibly and fill up on veggies!

    Hope this helps! 🙂

      Thank you so much. I’m so excited to see what my new goals bring. I think IM fasting is going to be my March goal.

      Thank you Danelle, I am going to try the same approach…such a great idea!!!

    Totally with you on the not trying to change everything all at once. I fail every time. The only “diet” that ever worked for me was Weight Watchers. And by that I mean that it helped me to realize how much food I was eating. Healthy or not. Anyway, I’ve been able to keep my weight down by eating less as much as I hate it, exercise. I eat whatever I want, within reason, but just eat less. I also learned that drinking water right before a meal helps fill you up so you eat less. I don’t think actually “dieting “ is necessary. Just making some changes. My problem now is WINE. We moved near wine country in SoCal about four years ago and I’ve gotten into the habit of drinking my red wine daily.????. So my change for the new year is to not drink during the week and enjoy my wine on the weekends. ????

    Last year, I did t have a planner and I missed so many events, deadlines, appointments, GAH! This year, I got a cute Studio54. One year, I’ll be able to think ahead and save up for an Erin Condrin. The paper is such good quality, in my mind, I think I write better on her paper. I write everything down. If I don’t have time to rewrite it in my planner, the sticky note goes in. I think the way your setting goals is a great idea! It’s similar to something I’ve been trying, it will be interesting to follow along with you!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yay. I’m the same way. When it is written down, I tend to follow along with my plans better. Keep me posted on your progress.

    My dad occ gets a little “thick in the middle”as he called it. Giving up alcohol tends to take care of it! Maybe a thought? It’s sooo much worse for you then anyone let’s on!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahahahahah I’ve heard that. It’s either alcohol in moderation or nerve pills…. I choose the little buzz with the alcohol. LOL

    I love the results I’ve had with intermittent fasting, 20 plus pounds down. I kind of fell off the wagon with the holidays and vacation but I’m back at it. I do the 16:8 and it works great for me. No food after 6-ish at night and I don’t eat again til 11 or so the next day. I’ve never really been a breakfast person so it works out great. I highly recommend it.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      YES…. I keep hearing that. Those are the hours I want to use too. I believe that will be one of my next goals. I cannot wait to start.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh…and congrats on your weightloss. That’s AWESOME!

    Absolutely agree with one new goal a month—this is ideal and will also do. I will be a month behind but that’s ok.
    Menopause is tough and not only for weight issues but overall feeling not yourself—at least for me.
    Here’s to a new day, will plan out my goals by month and hope to feel healthier.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yay… good luck to you. Honestly. Menopause is a totally different ballgame. People used to tell me that and I didn’t quite understand what they meant. I get it now. ????

  7. […] you missed my post on how I’m setting goals differently in 2019, you may want to read that first.  In a nutshell, I am focusing on ONE thing and one thing only each month to change.  Because old […]
