Keeping up with the Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Bit late I know but how many of you made a new years resolution to get fit and healthy or lose some weight and have already stopped trying to achieve it?

Here is my easy to follow guide to ensuring that you keep up with those resolutions you made and achieve and exceed them.

PART 1
  • Buy some cool gear.  Invest in a great pair of trainers and some nice workout outfits.  Feeling good in new workout clothes will help you get into a positive frame of mind each time you prepare to exercise.
  • Get Walking.  Walking is free, easy and one of the most beneficial exercises you can do.  Walk outside as much as possible.  Fresh air and sunlight are good for you- especially during the winter.
  • Start small.  Most people try to do too much in the beginning.  Then they get injured, feel overtired from too much exertion or decide they don't have enough time.  Instead build success by setting small goals- 10 minutes a day even- then gradually increase as it becomes habit forming.
  • Remind yourself that self-motivation is better than a wake up call.  We've all known people who change their diet and exercise habits after a health scare.  Why wait for the crisis?  Remember that starting and maintaining that fitness plan will help to prevent the scary wake up call.
  • Fight Rationalizations.  Don't let rationalizations sabotage your resolve.  Not enough time?  Shorten your workout, wake up half an hour earlier, walk during your lunch break or exercise whilst watching TV.  Or do something that you may think of as fun, ice skating, dancing, swimming with the kids.
  • Make exercise a Family Affair.  Its far easier to make healthy lifestyle changes when your kids or significant other are committing to them as well.  Get out cycling, ice skating, swimming or take the dog for a long walk.

PART 2 is coming tomorrow.  If you need any help with any fitness or health aspirations please get in contact.  Together we can make it happen.
