FIT TECH TIP:
1. Be Realistic
Make your goal attainable. If you want to lose 30lbs that’s a great goal to have, but make it realistic with setting small goals such as losing 5lbs at a time. Also instead of saying you will never eat your favorite food, give yourself one day to have a cheat meal.
2. Talk About It
Don’t keep your resolution a secret. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better or improve your health. The best-case scenario is to find a buddy who shares your New Year’s resolution and motivate each other.
3. Reward Yourself
This doesn’t mean that you can eat an entire box of chocolates if your resolution is to eat a better diet. Instead, treat yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. If you have been sticking to your promise to eat better, reward yourself with new fitness clothing or by going to a movie with a friend.
4. Don’t Beat Yourself Up
Obsessing over the occasional slip up won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day, and take one day at a time.
5. Stick to It
Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity to become a habit and six months for it to become part of your personality. It won’t happen overnight, so be persistent and patient!
6. Keep Trying
If you have totally run out of steam when it comes to keeping your resolution by mid-February, don’t despair. Start over again! Recommit yourself for 24 hours. You can do anything for 24 hours. The 24-hour increments will soon build on each other and, before you know it, you will be back on track.
