6 Easy New Year’s Resolutions

Image

Eating right and maintaining a healthy weight is something that should last throughout your lifetime instead of something initiated just once a year! Don’t wait until January 1st to begin planning your healthy eating resolutions - start doing (and sticking to) these seven New Year’s resolutions today:

1. Write Down Your Goals

You can attain your long-term goals to lose a certain number of pounds by setting short-term goals for yourself. It’s very important to establish realistic short-term goals so you can achieve different ones every few weeks. Don’t completely deprive yourself of the foods you like to eat or it will backfire on you. Instead, focus on the healthy foods you will eat and allow yourself to indulge in your favorite foods in small amounts once in a while.

2. Take The Time To Do Your Research

Don’t begin your New Year’s resolutions without an idea of what kinds of healthy foods, recipes and diet plans you’re going to embark on. Ignore any supposed quick weight-loss schemes that always seem to come out after January 1st, so you’re not tempted to try them. Most of them don’t work anyway and some of them can be dangerous to your health.

3. Assign Yourself An Accountability Partner

It’ll be much easier to stick to your New Year’s resolutions if you tell someone about them and they do it along with you. Whether it’s a friend, a spouse or a family member, they can help motivate you to stay focused on your short-term goals for long term success. The best part: you can motivate each other and pick each other up if either one of you falls off the wagon! 

4. Motivate Yourself With A Mantra

At some point during your journey, you’re going to have a bad day; and that’s okay.  Most people do. Whenever you’re feeling down about your weight or about the way you’ve been eating, it’s very important to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and continue onward. Remember, tomorrow is a brand new day! Create a motivational mantra that you repeat to yourself anytime you’re feeling discouraged; it’ll help inspire you and get you back on track again.

5. Measure Your Success

There are many apps available - such as MyFitnessPal, Fooducate, Fitbit and Lose It! - that will help you keep track of your progress if you’re trying to lose weight and meet your short-term goals. 

6. Purchase Things You’ll Need

Buy a reusable water bottle to tote around with you if your goal is to drink 8 cups of water per day. If one of your goals is jogging in the morning or taking a power walk after dinner, buying a new pair of good quality sneakers will help you to achieve that particular goal. Now is the time for you to purchase the things that you’ll need so you can follow through with your short-term goals.


Make a commitment to yourself and be sure to follow these 6 suggestions so you can succeed in achieving your New Year’s resolutions!
