Happy New Year! With the New Year come all those New Year’s Resolutions!
The latest statistics I’ve heard are that close to 75% of those that make out New Year’s Resolutions quit by February! How can we make sure you don’t fall into that category this year with your exercise or healthy living goals?
Start out with small goals. Small goals are easier to reach and will keep you motivated with each small success.
Another great tip is to take your calendar that you have hanging in your house and block out your workout schedule. I like using lots of different colors with markers or colored pencils.
For healthy eating, plan out your weekly menu, make a grocery shopping list, and stock your pantry and fridge. This will make sure you have all you need to succeed.
Another great tip is to have a dry erase board on your fridge and writing your schedule on there so your whole family will see and keep you accountable.
This leads me to the fact that telling your family and friends will help keep you accountable and motivated to stick with your goals.
Don’t forget to track your progress. This way you know all the progress you have made and how awesome you really are doing! You can do this!
Finally, get outside help or support. If you join a gym, take advantage of the personal trainers there! They are a great resource and motivator. Another option is a health coach. Click the link below to learn more about support options!
