We are well in to the New Year, resolutions a bit fuzzy.
Do you remember how gung-ho and motivated you were? How can you hold on? That unique lightening in a bottle spark of motivation to stay on track with your goals?
Well, the best place you can start is with the basics. What inspired you originally to make a big change? Focus on what made you decide you wanted to change.
Start with mini weekly goals
Small changes add up in a BIG way. Start with mini weekly goals that will make you more active and healthy.
- Take a daily walk
- Drink More Water
- Pack healthy lunches daily
- Plan to meet friends for a fitness class
Make appointments for fitness
Schedule your workouts like important meetings with your boss. YOU are the boss, bosses don't cancel. Workout buddies are a great way to follow through on workouts. Ask a friend or family member to join you for a gym sesh or to take a hike on a local trail. You are less like to flake when you make a plan with a friend.
Give your kitchen a check up
If your meals have been less than healthy as of late give your kitchen a check up. Stock up on the items you will need to stay on track. Start with writing down your healthy menu for the week then make a grocery list according to what you need.
