Make This One Amazing!!

Updated: Jan 31

It's that time again my friends! You know that time of year where everyone starts talking about all the healthy things they’re gonna do this year. Eating healthier, exercising more, and losing weight are usually at the top of most people’s lists of resolutions. I know for sure that all 3 were on the top of my list for years. I’m also one of those, “I’ll just start on Monday” even though it’s only Wednesday type of people.

For some reason beginning at the beginning of a week or year just makes everything seem less daunting. The problem with resolutions is that we fill up on all the unhealthy things all through Thanksgiving and Christmas, and then think that because the clock strikes 12 on New Years that somehow our mindset about diet and exercise has somehow flipped a switch.

Unfortunately, that’s not how humans work. We need to build our confidence by hitting smaller goals before we can feel prepared to go for the harder ones. It would be different if we were preparing our bodies for the New Year, but to think that we’re gonna go from stuffin’ our faces and sittin’ in front of the tv for 2 months, to working out and eating healthy every day, is a set up for failure. It’s no wonder that by the 2nd week in January most people are over the “new year new me” and back to the “every other year, same old me” status. It’s not that we don’t want to exercise and eat healthy, it’s that we didn’t prep for it.

This year can be different. You can start the year out with some simpler goals. Maybe something like, I’ll eat a healthy meal twice a week, every week in January, or I’ll take a walk 2 times a week all January, or both if you’re feeling up to it. The point is that there’s no reason to start something you can’t sustain. The best way to avoid crashing and burning is to take it slow and steady. Take small steps to hit the big goals and the journey will be much smoother. Preparation and consistency is how you create that mindset shift you need to get to where you want to be. Gettin’ healthy is a marathon, not a sprint, so have some patience and be kind to yourselves along the way. I’m here if you need any support. ❤️❤️
