6 Steps to Achieve Your Fitness or Weight Loss Goal This Year
“New year – new me” is a well-known motto, a tradition of its own. Creating your New Year’s Resolution is a way to motivate yourself to finally do something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. But as it turns out, actually keeping that New Year’s Resolution could prove to be a challenging task. Here’s a full proof plan to finally achieve your New Year’s fitness or weight loss goal.
Choose an achievable yet challenging goal.
People tend to set big goals for themselves. Big promises are easy to make, but incredibly difficult to keep – so, if you really intend on keeping the New Year’s resolution, start small and continue pushing yourself.
The next step is envisioning the results – this will motivate you more than anything else. Remind yourself daily why you want to achieve this goal. Envision yourself as the future you – how does it feel?
Say ‘No’ to Excuses
When it finally comes to executing your plan, be sure to follow the schedule you’ve already set up. Don’t let excuses get in your way!
Break your routine into small steps – this way, you can celebrate every milestone and this will serve as motivation to go on. Moreover, creating milestones will make the whole journey seem shorter and more pleasurable. Just make sure you don’t celebrate with the very thing you’re trying to give up!
Share your Goal
Finally, turn your friends and family into part of your journey. Share your goal with them! This will not only make things more exciting, but you can rely on them to support you and motivate you, when you’re feeling down. Remember: there will be hard times. There will be times, when you’ll slip up, or breakdown, or just won’t be able to follow your routine. These things are natural and the best thing you can do is accept them and move on. Follow these steps and accomplish any fitness or weight loss goal.
