7 Ways to Achieve Your New Years Resolution!

Set measurable, achievable goals

Set a goal for each week such as, ” I am going to lose 2 pounds every week.” Don’t make unrealistic goals that are impossible to achieve.

Chart those goals daily

Monitoring your day-to-day activity (and weight) helps you achieve those goals. Record a baseline so you can measure your progress, or you won’t realize how much progress you’re making. My fitness pal is great for keeping track of weight loss and daily calorie intake.

Keep a food diary

It’s amazing how much food we consume – especially when we don’t realize that we’re even eating. Maintaining a food diary will allow you to know exactly what (and how much) you eat. Keep track of everything, even those 5 chips you don’t want to admit!

Find a fitness Partner

It takes a team to make a change. It’s easy to “take a day off” or “just have this one—,” but you NEED someone to hold you accountable. It’s annoying – and not always convenient – but a buddy can keep you on track and on point.

Find out what motivates you

Whether you prefer running on the treadmill or you prefer the competition of one-on-one basketball, evaluate what motivates you and plan your workout around it. Is it tennis, racquetball, or a cross-country jaunt? Whatever it proves to be, include it in your workout.

Get back on the wagon

It happens to the best of us. But if you fall off the fitness wagon, get right back on. No excuses. Do not return to GO. Do not collect $200.

Reward yourself in non-food ways

Yes, it’s tough to think you can’t eat your favorite food for months. You need to find something that will equal that happiness. Maybe it’s new clothes or a long-yearned-for trip – whatever it is, try to reward your New Year’s fitness resolution sacrifice with some rewards.
