4 Tips to Stay Healthy from Lindsay Catherine Blog

by Cascade Ice on January 15, 2020

It’s one thing to set healthy goals for the new year, but it’s a whole other challenge to keep them. Our friend Lindsey Catherine, a Scottsdale, Arizona lifestyle blogger, helps us break it down into small ways that can help you make big strides this year. Check out her top tips for making your healthy resolutions last!

Up your Hydration

Water is key this month, well every month. Kick start the year by adding more water into your lifestyle. Plain water, well can be boring. I started adding in flavored waters, Cascade Ice, into my everyday routine. These sparkling water drinks are guilt-free, sodium-free, and caffeine free! Trying to drink a gallon of water a day is pretty hard, but adding these into the mix should help.

Partner with a Buddy

Having a friend, family member, or significant other join in your reaching your goals can make a big difference and it’s free! My friend and I agreed to send each other our daily food and water diary every night before bed. This helps to hold myself and her accountable in our journeys, even if they are different. This also will help with mindless snacking. If you’re hungry, drink more water! If you’re feeling something sweet, drink a Cascade Ice, the flavors are amazing and are perfect for your cravings. My favorite is the Orange Mango and Lemonade.

Be Active

We all know the start of the year gyms are crazy busy and that might deter you from getting in your workout, well don’t let it! Try going at a different time, early in the morning, during your lunch break, or later in the evening. I tend to work out around 6:30 pm when the post work crowd begins to leave. Classes are also a great way to be healthy this month, and most companies run start of the year sales so give that cycle, barre or HIIT class.

All About You

Make sure you goals are about you. All too often we get lost in social media and what she or he looks like. There is no standard to beauty. Don’t worry about impressing other people, especially those you don’t personally know either. To achieve long-term success in your goals do it all for YOU.

How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

by Cascade Ice on December 29, 2011

It’s almost the end of 2011 which means it’s time to make new year resolutions. Whatever your resolution may be there are ways you can ensure you don’t stray from your goals.

Think long term. Remember that things won’t happen within the first few days of the year and to keep pace throughout the rest of the year.

Create a plan. Set up your strategy for the whole year and break down your big goal into smaller, more manageable ones.

Write it down. Put your goal into writing and place it somewhere you can see it.

Track your progress. Write down your accomplishments! It will be a reminder that your hard work is paying off. Don’t forget to celebrate victories!

Whatever your resolution is make sure to have a plan. If you are cutting down calories, start by ditching the sugary soda for a sugar-free, sodium-free Cascade Ice!
