Fresh starts are great and with 2015 here it’s time to think about what you want for the coming year.
Did you know!! Jan, 2014, millions will arise ready to go and be so excited about there goal of getting fit. Sad but true by the end of January, a whopping 95% of those people will have failed at those New Year’s resolutions for one reason or another. We are not going to let you be one of those 95% not this year!! THIS IS YOUR YEAR!!!!!!
if it’s 10, 30, 60 pounds or even more you want to take off how are you going to do it??
Here are some simple tips to get you started in the right direction.
1. Write it down!! Write it down!! I can’t stress this enough!!
Map out how you are going to reach your goal. Set goals you can reach. I really do believe if your goals are not written down they are just dreams. When you write them down and put them somewhere you can see them it will set off events that will change your life.
2. Join a support group.
Weight does not just come off. You have to work hard and will need to be accountable. Join a support group where others are striving to reach weight loss goals. Take off pounds sensibly has worked for me. I also have many friends that have been to Overeaters Anonymous. You can find help in face to face meetings or on-line.
3. Make a vision board!
You need to have a clear vision of your goals! You can feel free to let your imagination wonder as you create your future on this board. This will help you create what you want from the inside and you can see it daily.
You will need a poster board. You can add sayings and pictures cut out from magazines. Healthy foods, Pictures of people near your ideal weight or even a picture of yourself at your ideal weight. Don’t hold back. You can put pictures that represent you and your dreams. Envision yourself and your new life and make this vision board all about your future.
Now place your board you will see it every day. If you look at it daily it will leave a imprint in your subconscious mind and you will make your board into reality.
4. It’s back to to the basics with eating. Eating healthy and often is the key.
During the holidays it is easy to get out of the habit of eating right. Get rid of the junk food. 6 small meals a day!! Click here to see a sample of what I eat and how I lost the 100 pounds!
5. Get involved in a weight loss challenge!!
Taking on a new year challenge can help you kick start your goals. Weight Loss Wars is a good one. I have a few friends that did this last year and had great results.
6. You will need to exercise.
Get a workout DVD. There are so many good ones your selection is endless. If you live locally I love love love taking classes from Nampa Fit Studio click here to check it out.
