Fresh Start for the New Year

This Fresh Start post was written by me on behalf of Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. All opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links. 

The new year has just begun yet there are a lot of resolutions being given up on already. It can be hard to use the New Year as a fresh start when your goals seem so out of reach but a good way to set yourself up to meet or even succeed your goals is to make sure they are attainable.

There are many ways to make your goals more reachable without changing your resolution altogether.

Freshen up Your Lifestyle: Find a new and exciting hobby, make an effort to smile more and to give more compliments. Start a new exercise routine that you are able to follow through with and change up daily routines like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Freshen Up Your Food: Use fresh ingredients and give yourself a fresh start this new year by using fresh nutritious ingredients.

Freshen Up Your Relationships: Reach out to a family or friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Send a letter or quick note to a friend or a family member you haven’t reached out to in a while.

Freshen Up Your Commitments: Vow to be more motivated at work, set goals to be more productive and set some goals to do better at arriving on time.

Make this the year that is all about entertaining family and friends. Give yourself a break and head to Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen for a scratch made meal.

Emojis are so popular right now. I think the Emoji Universe : Emoji Easter Eggs, 24-Pack would be a hoot and cute this year!

We were excited when Cheddar's came to our small town a few years ago. It's next to Walmart so I know it gets a lot of business! We live the Hawaiian chicken salad and the queso with beef (appetizer). Hubby and I like to share our food for a smaller meal and to save money.
