We all make resolutions each year with the best of intentions. Sometimes we achieve them, sometimes we don't. This year, make resolutions that matter and actually achieve them with these 5 tips.
Make Them Realistic
Pick something you know you’ll actually do. Instead of setting yourself up for failure from the get-go, choose something attainable. Maybe you won’t climb Mount Kilimanjaro this year (or maybe you will?), but perhaps you’ll sign up for a 5k run in your neighborhood. The beauty of setting realistic resolutions is that you can achieve them, you will achieve them, and you can build on that momentum to set your next goal. Keep making small changes, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself on top of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Make Them Specific
The more specific they get, the more likely they are to stick. Rather than the ever-popular, “workout more” resolution, try setting a specific plan in motion. Something like, go to spinning class every Tuesday night, is much more specific and much more attainable.
Write Them Down
Write down the details, make a plan, and execute the plan. If you write them down they become more real, helping you follow through with your plan.
Be Held Accountable
Just like writing them down, telling someone about them will make them more real. Find someone to hold you accountable for your goals this year. If you tell someone else about them, they’ll be able to call you out when you start to slack or pull you to the gym when you don’t feel like going. It’s much easier to make excuses and let yourself off the hook when you’re the only one looking. An A.M.Fit Membership is a great way to keep yourself accountable, by the way (wink, wink).
Don’t Throw in the Towel
Even if you find that you’re not sticking to your plan, don’t give up. Just get right back on track and keep working towards the resolution you set out to achieve this year. You set it for a reason, so remind yourself why it mattered, get back to the plan you created, and try again!
If improving your health, diet, or workout routine are on your list of resolutions this year and accountability is something you need, then you are in the right place. An A.M.Fit membership does just that. I can give you the tools to achieve your goals and exceed your expectations with guidance along the way and constant accountability and feedback to keep you on track. If you’re serious about making healthy changes this year, then let’s do it.
