Do you know the most popular New Year’s resolution? Yes, it is losing weight. Many people start strong on January 1st and then by March their resolution is forgotten. Here are some ideas to help you keep your fitness/weight loss resolution this year:
- Keep a journal – be honest about your habits and they will be more apparent in writing, bringing to light what you need to change.
- Drink more water – this keeps your body functioning at a high level, your skin looks great and you feel full faster when you are fully hydrated.
- Get enough sleep – when you are well rested you are less likely to succumb to emotional eating, stress-related eating and your energy level is higher.
Be persistent and patient with yourself – you know you didn’t gain the weight overnight and it will take some time and persistence to pay off – stay with it and then celebrate your success!
