Tips to Help You Achieve Your 2019 Health & Fitness Goals

It's that time of year again to make those promises to ourselves that we are going to finally achieve a level of health and fitness we can be proud about! At least that's what we are hoping for yet again...

I know it's hard and many of us even though we have great intentions will ultimately fail and go back to life as it was before. So here are some tips that may help you accomplish your Health and Fitness Goals for reals this time!

Have a Game Plan on Paper:

When you right something down and post it where you can see it everyday, even in multiple locations you will be reminded of that commitment to yourself which makes it a lot harder to give in to old ways.

Be Accountable:

Telling a person you respect or have value in their opinion means not only will be letting yourself down but in a way you feel like you are letting them down. Again this will keep you on track. It can be harder to let others down than even ourselves.

Set Realistic Goals:

This is something to consider when you are figuring out your game plan, don't try and lose too much weight too quickly, or restrict your diet to the point that your feel like you starving. Also set realistic workout goals, it all takes time as long as you are progressing a little week by week you will get to your ultimate goal eventually.

Don’t go Too Big Too Fast.

If you come out of the gates to fast and too hard you will burn out losing interest. Start slow and build on your Game plan, you don"t need to start every commitment day one. Over time as you feel better and better you can add in more workouts days and a stricter diet.

Reward Yourself a Little:

It can't be all work and no play, that's just not fun at all :( Plan to give yourself a reward meal or even day when you have stuck with your diet plan all week. One meal will not blow the entire week and gives you something to look forward to. Maybe plan to go out and buy some new clothing once you lose "x" amount of pounds since your old clothing may not fit you as good any more, sounds like a great excuse to me! Or even plan a reward vacation once you make it to your ultimate Health and fitness final result.

If You Fail at First Try Again, Failure is Not an Excuses to Give Up:

You are going to have good and bad days, even weeks, you may even feel like why bother going on when you failed so hard the week before. This is the time you need to focus and get back to work more than any other time. It is only failure if you decide to stop, setbacks are not failures.
