Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Brancott Estate Flight Song. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Instead of New Year’s Resolutions I like to write down my goals and priorities for the new year so that I’m more likely to stick to the plan. This year my two biggest goals are to get my home better organized and to lose ten pounds. To help lose the weight I’m walking several miles a day and keeping track of everything I eat. Once I started keeping track of my daily caloric intake I was amazed at quickly it adds up during the day. The food log has sure been motivating me to eat less and to make better use of the calories I do get.
There are a few things I would never give up but I plan to do in moderation instead – ice cream, cheese and wine! When I found out that Brancott Estate Flight Song wines have 20% less calories than similar selections of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio I had to try them out. My friend Theresa and I had a little wine tasting party and we decided that both of the wines are delicious. Both were light, fruity and flavorful without being overly sweet.
I will definitely buy more Brancott Estates Flight Song wine and I won’t feel guilty at all when I add it to my calorie intake log for the day. Between increasing my activity and decreasing calories I’m planning to lose the weight without depriving myself so I know that it will be easier to reach my goal and to maintain the goal weight. It is estimated that 75% of people break their resolutions after just one week, so I’m excited to have instead made some lifestyle changes that have been much easier to stick to. I think the best part of the plan though is to have a bottle handy while I’m organizing my closets and kitchen!
