I always think about what I want to accomplish when moving into a new year. There really isn’t anything that different about January 1st but it feels like the perfect time to think about fitness and nutritional goals you want to meet over the next 12 months. My advice is to avoid trying to overhaul everything at once. That makes your resolutions very hard to stick to. It’s a better idea to pick one or two things, like making sure to get enough water each day or committing to a brisk half hour walk four times a week. With only a little effort you’re sure to be able to meet that goal and everything else you do on top of it is icing on the cake.
If you bite off too much at one time, it’s easy to miss the mark. You pile on the expectations, then fail to meet them once or twice and give up because it’s too hard.
Make it easy on yourself…pick something small that will move you toward your bigger goal and you’ll see…success breeds success!
