New Year's Resolutions, Finish STRONG!

Have you ever made a New Year's resolution only to break it later and feel bad about it? You are not alone! We all have done this at one point in our lives. The point that we need to remember is the fact that we have over two months to get a huge chunk of those resolutions accomplished. We can do it, you and I. We just need to push a little harder. We might not be able to fully accomplish these resolutions, but we can and will be able to accomplish something in the mean time. How can we accomplish and achieve these resolutions? Let's get started!

1. Rewind
The first step that we need to take in order to recover our New Year's resolutions is to rewind back to the time when we first made the resolution. We need to go to that time when we first thought to make the resolution. Why were you going to make it? What made you think to make it? And, what were your goals when you were going to make the resolution? Were you drinking beer by the tonnage during a New Year's party? If so, you may want to think about how applicable your resolution was.

2. Rethink
The second step has already been touched on. Rethink your resolution and what it is that you resolved to do. If you were looking at a famous weight loss guru such as Shaun T and thought, "I'm going to resolve to look like that," then you may want to rethink your choice of resolution. Resolve to lose ten pounds before the year is out. You may be able to attain that resolution quicker and within a short amount of time.

3. Resolve
Resolve to do what you want to resolve to do. If you don't accomplish your resolution, then you may feel like you're a failure. You're not going to want to make a resolution next year if you don't accomplish it. Attaining your resolution is like keeping your promise to yourself. If you don't it's like you're lying to yourself. No one likes to be lied to. If you make a smaller resolution, then you can actually accomplish it. Go!

Tips for Weight Loss during the Holidays!

1. Less Sugar
Eating less sugar will ensure that you will lose more weight quicker than you normally would. You don't have to cut out sugar altogether, but just cut it back.

2. Morning Jog
Instead of going to the office or your job and sitting there with a slow metabolism, go for a jog and get your metabolism going early to help your weight loss. You will find as well that you will have greater energy in your day, even when we fall back an hour. 

3. Watch What You Eat
Most of the time we don't pay attention to what we are eating. If we watch what we are eating and consciously eat less and better foods, then we can lose weight during the holidays.

4. New Exercises!
Take up a new exercise or exercise set, then you can have a greater impact on your weight loss because you keep your mind interested in what you are doing. Take up golfing and walk the whole course, or take up playing a new sport.

5. Alternatives to Old Habits
Find new alternatives to your old habits. If you know that there is going to be candy in your office, then take a sweet granola bar with you to have an alternative. If you know that your mom is going to bring a sweet pie to thanksgiving dinner, then make something that is better for you.

We have looked at our New Year's resolutions and some ways to help you guys get started! I hope that you guys get going on your resolution and accomplish them.
