Monday Tip: Plan for Your New Year's Resolution
December 28, 2020 |
Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe this year is coming to an end? With it comes the idea of new beginnings. The number one resolution that people have for the new year and new beginnings is weight loss. Not a surprise, but why don’t you start early and pave the way for success in the new year of healthy habits now?
There are so many little things you can do now to prepare you for your ultimate success in the new year. And if you start now, then you have time to come up with another resolution because you’ll have a plan to achieve success and that’s half the battle.
Start small. I’m sure that with all of the friends and family creating a vortex in your living room, you have eaten out more than in this holiday season. Take a trip to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s and stock up on healthy foods to fill your refrigerator. Take a minute to pass out the last of the candy and cookies and then don’t look back. Start eating healthy meals at home before the new year comes.
Talk a walk. You may not be quite ready for full-on beast mode in the gym yet, but if you start out by walking, you’re on your way. Exercise more each day until you’re ready to tackle the new year in the gym.
Drink a lot of water. A good rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water every day. It’s hard to remember to do that sometimes, so invest in a water bottle and carry it with you everywhere. If you’re not a fan of drinking straight up water, infuse it with some strawberries, mint or cucumbers to give it a hint of flavor. The water will begin to flush your system.
With the addition of your healthy meals, and walking, you’re well on your way to a healthier, fitter you!
