New Year Resolutions… We’ve all heard them. “I’m going to lose weight in 2010.” “I’m going to be healthier.” “I’m going to get in shape.” The end of a year is a time when many Americans reflect on their personal lives and aim to do better in the new year. Two of the most popular New Year Resolutions fitness – lose weight and exercise for improved fitness!
It’s great to have resolutions and vow to do better in 2010, but broad resolutions are usually unattainable and set people up for failure. To achieve success, resolutions should be specific and realistic, and force you to act. A better resolution for “Lose Weight” might be “Increase my daily steps by 100 each week” or for “Get in Better Shape” maybe it’s “Do 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least 3 days a week.” Specific resolutions such as these can be tracked and the results reviewed. Achieving little victories will lead to results and encourage you to set additional realistic and attainable goals!
The new year is a perfect time of year to make changes in your life to improve your health and fitness. Specific, action-oriented new year resolutions will help you reach your personal goals!
