Keeping up with the Resolutions

PART 2

  • Involve your friends.  Kids and spouses aren't always the most supportive.  Tell your friends about your plan to be more active.  Schedule exercise with them, seek encouragement from them.
  • Notice small improvements.  Perhaps the best motivators are the ones you notice in yourself.  Is your skin radiant? Have you lost weight?  Do your clothes fit better?  Are people complimenting you?  Are you more energetic, or sleeping better?  Remember these improvements when your resolve is weak.
  • Keep it up for three weeks.  Research shows it takes only three weeks to form a habit.  Therefore, remind yourself that if you can just follow your fitness plan for 21 days, your chances of staying on it for all of 2012 are excellent.
  • Establish a goal.  Its much easier to continue exercising if you can remind yourself why you are doing it.  Enter a charity event, raise some money, it will help you stay focused and motivate you to keep going.
  • Give yourself a break. There will be times when you don't exercise.  Getting off track is a normal part of behavioral change.  Don't beat yourself up, but do commit to starting afresh tomorrow.
  • Seek expert help.  The staff at your gym/club are there for a reason, to help you.  Get their advice on the best way to reach your goal, they should be experts and qualified in fitness, so should know more than you.  If you don't like what one says ask another.

None of these suggestions are the answer for everyone, you may find some more useful than others, the main thing is that you stick at it and these suggestions can help you to do that.

Good luck and think how you will feel in July, having completed 6 months of life changing exercise.
