How is your New Year Resolution holding up?
If you’re like 75% of people, that thought has come and gone! Did you make promises to yourself to improve your eating? To move more? Whatever those BIG goals may have been, lets break them down into smaller ones you can actually achieve and do for optimal health!
Look at your nutrition on a simpler level. Drink more water, eat more veggies, cut back on empty calories, and be mindful of protein intake. Now make those goals SMART (Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic and Timely). This would change the goals to be: drink 2L of water per day, eat 1 cup of vegetables with every meal, cut out pop, etc.
If you were wanting, ARE wanting, to exercise more, make a SMART goal. Walk 20 mins 5 days per week, stretch for 3 minutes each day, take a yoga class 2x per week, join the local health club, or meet with a Personal Trainer to ensure you’re comfortable and confident in the gym while being safe.
You need to have a strong WHY. What is the real reason behind the goals you have? Consider this when making a plan of action to create a habit. Exercise and good nutrition support your immune health! You won’t always feel motivated. You do however, have to be disciplined.
Fitness isn’t just a resolution. It’s a lifestyle. Focus and reset often. Have an accountability partner. It helps. Good Luck! Let me know if you have any questions regarding goal setting.
