I partnered with Princess House to bring you tips & tricks to keeping your healthy New Year resolutions. I was compensated but all opinions are my own.
I’m pretty sure that weight-loss is always one of the top New Year Resolutions that everyone makes. We all want to be better physically but it’s really important to remember that health doesn’t always equate with weight loss. Do I want to lose weight? Sure. But more importantly, I want to be healthy. Keeping your healthy New Year Resolutions isn’t easy but it’s totally possible.
How To Keep Your Healthy New Year Resolutions
Before you keep your healthy goals, you need to set specific ones. Healthy is such a relative term that it can make things confusing and hard to hold yourself accountable to. In order for me to keep my milk supply up, it’s healthy for me to take in more fats and calories. But that may not be healthy for another. So set goals that make sense for you.

I was reading an article about how people in France are so skinny even though they eat all the cheese and pastries and such. But it’s because they eat smaller portions! This can be hard to track because who feels like measuring everything out at all times. But look at these plates that do the work for you! The Perfect Portion Dinner Plates have embossed areas for you fill your plate with 25% protein, 25% healthy carbohydrates and 50% veggies for a well-balanced meal.
This is something that’s especially hard for me. I still have the mindset of a college student and eat when it’s convenient. Now that my metabolism is different courtesy of kids and age, I need to make sure that I’m eating on more of a schedule and getting my calories in.
Incorporate Super Foods
Did you know that fat is good for you? People hear fat and literally go crazy over it. Our society is inundated with low-fat this, and no fat that. That’s not necessarily what’s healthy for you but you know what is? Avocados are! These babies are full of nutrients that will keep you more full longer and is the perfect addition to salads, rice dishes and more. But you know what isn’t easy? Preparing an avocado. Which is why I love this 5-in-1 Avocado Tool that helps me to eat my avocado easily.
Planning is everything. Planning your meals. Planning your workouts. It matters and it makes keeping your goals easier. With proper planning, you can see what’s working versus not working.

This became trendy speak last year but it really makes sense. The less processed foods your body intakes, the easier it is for your body to break it down. But keeping those fruits and veggies fresh can be difficult. I hate having to toss the delicious foods that I just didn’t have time to eat. But Fresh + Healthy™ Produce Keeper Set makes it so that you save your money AND your produce.
Get Active With Intention
Being active is obvious. But making sure that you’re active with intention is the important thing. There are tools like the FitBit, Jawbone Up Band, Nike FuelBand, Apple Watch and more to help. The amount of apps to give you workouts to do from 30 seconds to hours are out there and accessible as well. There’s literally no excuse!
