Happy New Year?

Sometimes the New Year can be a mixed blessing.  Everyone is setting their resolutions, which seem to fade away in a few weeks.  Feelings of frustration, failure, fatigue, and finally loss of motivation seem inevitable.  So here is my suggestions to success:

  1. Don’t make resolutions!  Instead, let’s set a loose fitting goal. Let’s create a goal that is doable, but not so far out in space that it’s impossible to achieve.  “I will sign up for a class that sounds interesting and I will commit to attending 2 days per week.” This is achievable .

  2. Put it on your calendar. If it’s not on my calendar, it will not get done. I put everything on my calendar and I set alarms for the important things. There are lots of calendar options out there, so find a simple one or a simple app on your phone to remind you to get up and do your goal today.

  3. Don’t beat yourself up if you take a little break.  Remember, all you did was set a goal. That’s doesn’t mean you have to make yourself crazy when you skip a day, or you forget to schedule it into your schedule.

  4. Give yourself rewards for achieving your goals.  I enter my participants into a drawing for a each month for attendance.  This is, of course, to entice you to attend often so you get your name in the drawing, but couldn’t you set up a prize for yourself?  Get a pedicure or massage for achieving your goal this month.

So, here is my goal for this year: lift weights 2 days per week.  This is something that I really need to get back into and I push it to the bottom of my list because I much prefer cardio anything, to lifting.

Email me your goal today and let’s help each other become our better selves!

I thought you might be interested in the survey outcomes. Just so you know, we collected no names, personal medical information that you didn’t want to share or emails. This was completely anonymous.
