Every single day we have the gift of beginning again. A new start to take what we’ve learned from the past and create something better for ourselves As a motivational speaker on health and wellness I am passionate about spreading the message of health through food, fitness and fun.
Since we’re at the beginning of a brand new year where most of us make a list of resolutions to improve our lives, I thought I would take this opportunity, in a series of 5 short posts, and share some helpful tips on how to keep just our Fitness Goals on track. I’ll begin by sharing my list of Fitness Resolutions with you.
This year I’m going to …
Lose weight (because I ate!)
Work the core and stretch more
Get in gear with spin class
Squeeze in my Speedo and swim laps
Get ripped with Crossfit and
Lift my rear within the year!
Now let’s get real. This list is waay too long and if I attempted all of these things I’d be dead by the end of the week! Besides that, it’s hard enough to adopt one new habit in our lifestyle no less the 6 specific activities mentioned above.
It has been said that we are all made up of a bundle of habits. Our habits are specific to us and they govern 95% of what we do during the day. Some habits are new, some are old. Some are positive, some are negative. Some are weak and easy to change, some are strong and deeply engrained.
So if we’re going to add one new fitness habit in our life then let’s:
- Pick just one
- Pick the one that you’ll have the most fun doing
- Pick the one that you know you’ll be the most successful with!
The others can be added at a later date. Let's give ourselves the gifts of patience and time with our one fitness challenge in order to welcome this new healthy habit into the bundle of habits that we are.
