What’s your New Year’s Resolution? Don’t have one? No worries; I am not sure I like them anyway. Surely they are motivating (initially), but seeking a better self shouldn’t be captivated only one time a year. Nonetheless, let’s get healthier before we get caught up in what others are doing since January 1.
My first question is – what do you want to be different from this winter to the next? More energy, a different dress size, a faster paced mile, more reps on your weight lifting routine? What in your health could be better?
Whatever your goal is, write it down. One effective place to write your goal is getting a dry erase marker and writing the goal on your bathroom mirror.
Next think why it’s important. This WHY is so crucial. It’s going to be your ongoing motivation.
Now go back and look at what your goal is and assess whether it’s intimidating to initiate or easy enough to start NOW. If you can’t do something for your goal today, break that goal down to something smaller, with a lesser barrier of entry to begin.
Next, draft a plan to reach this small milestone within the week, and in the next week, reassess your goal and set your standards higher to inch closer to the main objective.
Overall, it’s hard to know where we are headed if we don’t know what we are truly trying to go after.
If you need any help, feel free to email me at [email protected],com. As well, I have also added another service which includes assessing a 3-5 day food log, where I provide insight and tactics of what someone needs to do reach a set goal. Sometimes accountability is all you need! Let me be your coach this month. I promise to play nice.
Cheers to you and good health,
