New year, new me?
10 Tips To Help You Stick To Your New Year’s Fitness Resolutions
Wellness doesn’t happen overnight, so be patient with yourself! Long-term results are best achieved through small, gradual changes. Want to lose 10 pounds? Aim for ½-1 pound a week. Want to run a 5K? Start by running 1-2 miles every few days. If you go all out and push yourself too hard, too fast, you may find it difficult to maintain new habits and end up giving up altogether.
Make a date with yourself
Assess your schedule and figure out where exercise can fit into it. Even when things get really hectic, there’s always a little time to spare somewhere. Then make dates with yourself and stick to them. When you’re overwhelmed by commitments, routine can help you stay on track.
Keep it fresh.
No matter how and when you choose to move your body, it should be enjoyable and for the purpose of celebrating it, not punishing it. If you’re already going to the gym regularly but find it hard to stay motivated, try something new to revive your resolve and boost your fitness level. Why not try a new fitness class from our new timetable?
Rope in a buddy!
Having a “partner in crime” not only makes exercising more fun but it also helps keep you accountable… Even better, research shows that couples who work out together develop a stronger bond.
Have a plan B.
Last minute obligations are bound to pop up on occasion, making it difficult for you to stick to your gym routine and other healthy practices. Be prepared for those moments by keeping your running shoes under your desk or in your car, and stash some nutritious bites in your purse. Don’t be caught off guard!
Give yourself a break.
Everyone gets sick once in a while or has a totally crazy-busy day. When going to the gym is the last thing you feel like doing or you couldn’t resist that mid-afternoon brownie, don’t beat yourself up! Tomorrow is another day. And remember: moderation is the key to healthy and long-lasting results.
Instead of fake, overly processed “diet” foods, eat real foods.
Fat-free snacks, 100-calorie packs, energy bars… These so called “health foods” are not real foods. Eat real food and eat like an adult! These preservative-laden products that con our brains into thinking we’re full, yet leave us feeling ravenous again in no time.
Our New years Specials are running right up until the 31st of January so it’s the perfect opportunity to make that start towards a fitter & healthier you in 2019!
