January 2013

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and also ate well in December. In 2013, I want you to think about the word “Inspiration”. Inspiration is defined as the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something. Beafitkid.org has inspired me to help children achieve their goals and to create some of my own. I would like everyone reading this to find one personal goal he or she can achieve in 2013. Also, I want you to write it down!! I believe “Goals that are not written down are just wishes”. For example, do a push-up, pull-up, complete a 5k run , eat better, or do better in school. A New Year means a New Beginning!! Let’s make this year the best and achieve our goals. My personal goal for 2013 is to compete in a local natural fitness bodybuilding contest. Also, my second goal is run a 10k in 55 minutes. I’m really looking forward to accomplishing these two goals and also to meeting new fit kids!! Let’s get started……

Dr. K’s Nutrition tip of the Month
As a new year begins, I would like your inspiration to extend to one nutrition goal for 2013. It should be simple and achievable. An example might be, “I will stop drinking soda and fruit drinks.” or ” I will stop snacking after dinner.” or ” I will eat at home 5 out of 7 days.” As Coach Brandon says, write it down and it becomes more powerful. Small changes add up to transformation over time.
