This year is my year. I’m not focusing on losing weight. But I am focusing on getting healthier. I want to slim down by toning and becoming more fit. This year I’ve already signed up for 2 5k’s with my friends and my hubby. I’m so excited. It gives me something fun to work toward. It makes my friend and I get out and walk a few times a week and get our steps in.

Getting healthy is always a good idea. Don’t think you have to start just in January. A change can be made at anytime or in any place. We made the decision to use 5k’s to get our workouts in and keep our steps up. Having someone you’re accountable to makes the workout worth doing. I love a good walk with my bestie. It makes life so much more bearable. I dare say it’s therapy for my soul.

They say that getting your 10000 steps in daily makes you live longer. Well doing a 5k by it’s self is almost 7500 steps for me. So making sure I get those steps in is what keeps me more motivated. We’ve got one this month and we’re trying to schedule about one a month. Number one it’s great exercise. Number two it’s more fun with friends and spouses. Number three it’s easy and a fun way to spend the afternoon. If you’ve never been to a 5k the camaraderie is amazing. The other runners/walkers are just there cheering you on. The excitement is palpable and something you will want to do again.

When I think of healthy I think of the Nature Made brand. The ones I bought this time were in the picture below. I bought the vitamelts for an energy boost in the mornings when I’m going slow.

I also grabbed the melatonin for the nights my hubby can’t sleep and needs to for work the next day.

And lastly I grabbed the Nature Made Super B Complex. Did you know Nature Made is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support nutritional gaps? I love having a product I can trust that will give me the vitamins I need to get through the day. I was able to get these at my local Wal-Mart. There’s no need to wait for a sale with their already low prices. Don’t forget to also visit and sign up for the Nature Made Daily Boost program for inspiration and information to further your health goals and to get a sneak peek at what other Nature Made fans are doing to stay healthy.

The last thing I’ve been doing is cutting back on carbs. I want to eat healthier so I can be here for my kids. I need to be here a good 45 more years or more!
