What's On Your List This New Year?

Every time a new year starts we all get this feeling of it's time to do more, it's time to improve more, or it's time to change more, etc etc etc. But this year I think it's finally time we stop saying we will and start doing what we said. The purpose of this post is to give you information that will help make these decisions easier so that way this year you're ready to conquer and not quit! So now you need to ask the question, what am I looking to do different in 2018?

1. Start Exercising!*

This is the most common goal in a new year but definitely an important one! Your physical health is directly linked to mental health, so happy body equals a happy mind! Here are a few options to think about;

Planet Fitness
From January 1 until January 10, the enrollment fee is just $1. Then, it’s $10 per month for a standard membership or $21.99 per month for the PF Black Card membership. (The PF Black Card includes additional benefits like the ability to bring a guest for free every visit, access to all 1,400-plus locations, use of Hydro Massage beds, massage chairs, and more.)

Gold’s Gym
Starting in January, Gold’s Gym will kick off its signature 12-week body transformation contest at participating gyms across the United States. Exclusively available to members, the contest will not only help improve overall health, but participants will have a chance to win one of many cash prizes totaling $100,000.

Life Time
From January 1 to January 30, all locations will host the Commit to Fit movement for members and non-members, which includes promotions like Yoga Week, Studio Week, and Cycle Week. If you’d like to become a member, talk to them about special pricing.

24 Hour Fitness
Beginning January 2018, there's a $0 initiation fee on select all-club monthly payment memberships. (Initiation fees vary by club, but they range between $39.99-$89.99.) By becoming a member, you'll also get access to two new programs: Strong by Zumba (a 60-minute high-intensity workout) and Team USA Bootcamp (so you can train like an Olympian during the Winter Games 2018).
2. Eat Better!**
The second most common new year goal is also incredibly important for a healthy you! Here are a few great ways to make your food intake smarter and better for you. 
Reduce your sugar intake, little by little.
Cutting back on sugar is a gradual process and doesn’t happen overnight, but once you start to cut back on it, you’ll realize you don’t need as much of it as you once thought. And it doesn’t have to be complicated. One easy thing I like to do to cut is use Truvia Nectar, because it has 50 percent fewer calories than sugar. I put it in my Greek yogurt, tea, or anything else I usually put honey, sugar, or agave in.”
Add veggies to breakfast time.
“One health-protective habit I often recommend is aim to fill half of every mealtime plate or bowl with non-starchy veggies. For most people (including me!), that’s easier to do for lunch and dinner than for breakfast. So, my eating resolution this year is to include veggies in one way or another at every breakfast. I see plenty of non-traditional breakfasts in the future!”
Finally get into meal prep—seriously, it's a game changer.
“A weekly meal plan can help you eat better, save money, and time during the week. I really like this type of resolution because it is positive, no restriction, doesn’t involve dieting.”
3. Travel More!
How often do we all say, "I want to travel more" or "I want to go see this place" well this year start actually making it happen! I have two big suggestions to make this a reality; budget and plan. Every pay check take an amount (even just $50 dollars) and put it away. Then after a few months see what you have and get to planning! 
The key to planning is do it early. The earlier you book your trip the cheaper it is, and never underestimate using sites like or they truly do shop around for the best deals so you can save the most money! Another idea is use AirBnB, it can help you save a lot of money so that you can spend more on the experiences and less on the room!
4. Make a Move!
Okay I know that as a Real Estate team we naturally want to talk about Real Estate, but truly a lot of people look for a new home at the start of a new year! Whether it's because someone wants out of an apartment, or their family is expanding, or possibly a new job makes them go to a new area, there are lots of reasons that make someone want/need to move. 
The best part is the Springs Summit Group team is here to make the process the easiest, most enjoyable, and most efficient possible! No matter what kind of property you're looking to buy we have you covered, and if you're ready to sell and upgrade we have the knowledge and experience to get you top dollar!
