Weekly Deals: FabFitFun, Beachbody, ChickFilA and More

 

Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I have tried that in the past. This year I’m trying something different. I’m going to focus on a word. I was reading that if you focus on a word – it doesn’t feel so negative (we all know that many people don’t really stick to their resolutions). So, I picked a word. Would you also pick a word? Let me know what you pick. I may follow up with you in a month or so and see how your word focus is helping you!

FabFitFun Box. I may have mentioned before. I am a mail junkie. Yes, I order magazines hoping I can get on someone’s mailing list. I wait for the mail person like the just brought me an amazing prize. Only now, I do get a PRIZE (or at least it feels like it). I bought myself a Christmas present that will continue giving all year long. The FabFitFun box features full size items. The first box I received included: Modcloth scarf/blanket, cute to-go coffee mug, coloring book & colored pencils, lip gloss stain, argan hair oil, mineral face peel, tag necklace (that my daughter promptly took), skin hydrating booster and a nail polish. The whole box was just $40 (Using a 20% off coupon code – COZY) and that stuff in the box totals $200+. I’d say that’s a deal! The boxes are sent quarterly.

Beachbody On Demand. I know that a lot of people get enthused about being more active/healthy this time of year. Beachbody (the makers of P90X, Insanity and more) are making ALL of their programs available for a whole year for just $199 (most gym memberships are around $45/month – so this is a GREAT deal). You can work out in your own home any time of day or night! Sign up here. (Yes, I’m doing it too!)

Chick Fil A. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! From 6 a.m. to 10:30 either go inside or drive through to get a free breakfast each Wednesday in January. Items will vary weekly and by location.

Stock Show. As a Colorado native, January has always meant Stock Show and Rodeo to me! Join the festivities with the kick-off event, the parade of livestock down the streets of Denver this Thursday. The step-off is at noon at Union Station. The stock show and rodeo runs January 7-22. Tickets are inexpensive and it can be an entire day of fun for the whole family.

Run Your Own Race

As multitudes of people have set those New Year’s Resolutions (and maybe already dropped off the band-wagon at the gym), created pretty collages like an elementary school project calling it a dream board, or maybe you have designs on something bigger – make more money, travel or to quit a bad habit.

This year I am choosing one simple resolution that is pervasive to help me achieve all the other things I could put on a dream board, be healthy, make more money, blah blah blah. That is – to  Run My Own Race. Yes, it’s that simple.

I fully admit that I have a bad case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). I want to be at everything, wonder why I wasn’t invited to that gathering, I spend too much time mooning over what someone else’s life is like on Facebook (and other social media). I hear about the great trip they took or look at a photo of friends in fabulous outfits, or hear about the great client that they got that will mean a giant paycheck.

I decided this year – I want to be that person that someone else looks to and says “Hey she’s got a pretty fantastic life.” Not really. What I really want – is a mind set that says, I don’t really care what others think of me and for me to really do the best that I can do. I want to define myself and say that I’m AWESOME no matter what anyone else thinks because I’m doing what makes ME happy. That means I have to drive after my own dreams, I have to go after my own goals, I have to find my own resources and mentors.

That may even mean I literally run a race – or just live better as a member of the human race!

What is your resolution? Have you thought of the other questions? WHY are they important to you? WHO do you want to inspire with your Goal Achievement? WHAT will it meant to you to Achieve them? WHAT will become possible when you Achieve them?
