This year I’m all about making it the happiest and healthiest of all for my entire family. It’s a new decade and a new time for growth and big dreams, but to make all these things happen I believe you need to feel your best. I’m someone who is very aware of taking care of myself on the health side of things, but I do feel that we can all do a little extra to ensure happy and healthy futures!
BJ’s Wholesale Club is (literally) my home away from home. I joke with people that the staff knows me there, but the staff actually knows me there! I love going and getting all the essentials that I need for my family on a weekly basis. You’ll see me any given time during the week walking the aisles with 4-6 gallons of milk, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Wellsley Farms Wheat Bread, Cheez-It Snacks, Veggie Straws, Wellsley Farms Apples, etc! BJ’s covers us completely and I love that about our club.
As I was walking the aisles last week at BJ’s, I was thinking about 2020 and how I really want to make it the best year yet. I was talking to my oldest son about this and as we were walking, I started pointing to items that would help me take on 2020 as a happy and healthy year! It’s all about doing what you can to take care of our body, which in turn (for me) also helps with my mind and soul. It’s all connected, and I talk about this a ton over at my Facebook Group, Permission to Hustle.
I wanted to share with you 10 things that I found at BJ’s Wholesale Club that can help bring you a happy and healthy New Year! My son William got a kick out of how excited I was as I found more and more items that would help people out along the way! All it takes is a little drive, accountability and the “right” products and items to get you going!
Here are my 10 BJ’s Finds for a Happy and Healthy New Year:
#1 fitbit time – I’m all about wearing something that will help track me, this is how true accountability comes into play. BJ’s sells them in-club and online at BJs.com. My personal favorite is the Charge 3 Activity Tracker. All this to help you get yourself moving in the New Year! I always tell myself, just take 20 minutes a day to do something active. That’s all it takes to get yourself going!
Strap on the durable, lightweight Charge 3 and begin your next workout without the hassle of going into your phone to configure settings as this tracker automatically detects most exercises. Furthermore, you can connect the Fitbit to an Android, iOS, or Windows-based smartphone and utilize the phone’s GPS to log your next run with real-time pace and distance tracking.
24/7 heart rate, All-day calorie burn, Automatic exercise recognition, Real-time pace and distance, Durable, lightweight design, Heart rate zones, Up to 7-day battery life – Includes Fitbit Charge 3 Activity Tracker, bonus band, charging cable – Warranty: 1 year limited
#2 Cookbooks – BJ’s has an array of cookbooks for you to choose from in-club and online at BJs.com. I found some great ones on keto and recipes to aid in weight loss. The reason I love using cookbooks as a guide is because you know these recipes have been tested again and again. Take the time to find ones that will help you out in 2020 at BJ’s!
#3 My Pillow – Here’s one thing that everyone needs to make sure they’re getting – a GREAT NIGHT SLEEP. I recently went to my doctor and he suggested finding new pillows because I told him I had been having a tough time sleeping. Without sleep you’re tired all day long, that’s not how I want 2020 to go! I love that BJ’s has pillow options that you can choose from, too! I’ve always wanted to try My Pillow and the reviews look amazing!
#4 SHAPE Workout Wear – Everyone needs it! Workout wear is something that I love to replenish every year. I’m someone who works out and sweats hard! I love being able to grab new pieces here and there and find ones that are fashionable and comfortable for myself. BJ’s always has options when it comes to workout wear. Head on over to see what they have and grab yourself a new and fashionable outfit! Dressing the part always helps me, too!
#5 Contigo Water Bottle – The second I saw these I knew I needed to get them for the house! Hydrating is something that I’m adding as a goal this year. I don’t drink enough water at all! Coffee? I drink all the time. Water? Not so much. I always want to keep this water bottle on me this year. I love knowing that a simple item like this can really help me on the health side of things. Hydration is KEY for so much! Make sure you’re adding this into your life!
#6 Wellsley Farms items – I don’t want to do a big lengthy post on diet, but it’s important to note here that in order to be happy and healthy in 2020… diet is key. I’m someone who is helping my husband lose weight this year and it’s not easy. BJ’s has an incredible assortment of healthy foods under their exclusive brand – from almonds and fruits to cheeses and crackers. My advice is to walk around and find healthy snacks you can add into your life. This is something that is VERY top of mind for our family this year.
#7 – Digital Kitchen Scale – We used to have a kitchen scale in our kitchen for years, but when it broke – we never replaced it. I’m changing that this year. Weighing your food is such an exceptional way to see how much you’re putting into your body. This is a great way to help you keep up with your health goals throughout 2020!
#8 – Yoga Mat – Did you know you could buy a yoga mat at BJ’s? How great is that? I started doing yoga last May and I love it! It really does bring me so much happiness and calmness and peacefulness. I also love that it’s something that you can easily do at home and find videos on YouTube or Netflix to guide you. These mats are wonderful and definitely recommend you grabbing one while at BJ’s!
#9 – Stability Ball / Weights – When it comes to taking care of yourself, I love that BJ’s has items that are there to help you out. I love being surprised by items that BJ’s has in-club and these were 2 of them! If you’re looking to bring in some workouts into your life, it’s easy to start from home with some basic equipment like this. Many times, people get nervous about heading to the gym, so bring in these items that will get you started for 2020!
#10 – Digital Glass Scale – This isn’t everyone’s favorite item to see, but it’s all about accountability, right? If you’re able to get yourself moving and keep yourself in a healthy direction – for many people that means seeing the number on the scale get lower. I know my husband is always afraid to look at the scale, but it’s a starting point and it will help you get to where you need and want to be.
