5 Tricks to Keeping Your New Year’s Fitness Resolution

5 Simple Steps to Keep your New Years Resolution

1.) Do not plan to fail.

Be realistic. Do not make a resolution of “I will never eat another cookie again”. Because, lets face it, you are more than likely to eat a cookie here or there. Also, telling yourself that you can “never have (insert favorite junk food here) again” is going to make you crave that food even more. Instead, plan to avoid cookies in your day to day diet.

2.) Plan ahead.

Make sure to plan your resolution now! Be prepared to buy healthier food, have time to cook your own food, etc. When you decide on a whim to live a healthier lifestyle, you need to make sure you have the time plan what you are going to eat, when you are going to be active, etc. Once you have everything planned, it becomes an easy routine!

3.) Track your progress.

Keep a log of what you eat, what fitness activity you preformed, your starting weight, your goal weight, etc. it may seem tedious at first but when you see everything written down you may be a little less likely to eat those sweets and more likely to hit up the gym a little more often. Track your fitness progress as well. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing how far you have come with fitness!

4.) Start small.

If you have 30 pounds to loose. Focus on loosing 5 at a time. Once you loose 5, move on to the next set. Stay motivated and switch things up. Do not try to loose 30 pounds in a month because that may not happen. Set up a descent time frame and work hard. It is better to meet your goal before your time frame is up than to not meet your goal by the time frame you set.

5.) Don’t give up.

If you have totally run out of steam when it comes to keeping your resolution by mid-February, don’t worry. Start over again. Recommit yourself for the next 24 hours. You can do anything for 24 hours. The 24-hour increments will soon build on each other and, before you know it, you will be back on track.
